This is a beautiful restaurant, with breathtaking scenery and good food, but it is VERY pricey! If you're celebrating a really special occasion, this is a great choice! Try to make a reservation right around sunset and you'll get your money's worth in gorgeous views!

Description
********** CLOSE FOR SEASON AND WILL RE-OPEN MARCH 28th, 2018 *****************
***********************************

An absolute escape from Ocean City. A place to indulge in inventive American cuisine and mouthwatering seafood while overlooking one of the most picturesque views you have ever laid eyes on. If you're looking to simply come in for some appetizers and a few cocktails our bartenders make great company at the bar that maintains the same breathtaking views. So next time you're wondering where to go to enjoy an exceptional meal, stop by The Hobbit and step into a classy, sleak, but most importantly comfortable world of dining excellence. We are located in the bottom floor of the Rivendell Condominium at 81st on the Bay and we offer our full menu daily beginning at 5 p.m.
***********************Temporarily Closed until March 28, 2018.**************************
