While walking around Old Town looking for a place to have dinner we talked with a couple of locals. One recommended a BBQ place which we never found. The second mentioned Bilbo Baggins. Small front but roomy inside, Also a second floor. Specials that night were reasonably price. We had grilled achiote pork chop and wiener schnitzel which were both... More

I used to eat here occasionally when I lived in Virginia. After moving away several years ago, I wondered if it was still there. I came back for a few days and was delighted to see that it's still in business. The waiter said it's been on business for 36 years. It was a chilly and rainy day so there... More

Ate there last year. Very good food. I'm a Bilbo and Frodo groupie so it was special to me to eat here. Had to walk up stairs and didn't like that but it didn't stop me from enjoying it.

My friend and I had dinner. We arrived on a Saturday evening around 6p.m. There was no wait and we were promptly seated at a table on the second floor. We were the only couple in the section in which we were seated. I ordered the shrimp and lobster bisque which had no shrimp and lobster. It looked like baby... More

I've been to both the restaurant portion and the tiny bar area, and always prefer the cozy bar area when I can get a seat there. The beer selection is varied but not too overwhelming and they always have something interesting on tap. The custom cocktails made with their own barrel aged spirits are usually worth a try. The happy... More

Beers, cheers and change of gears. Loved this place. Bilbo Baggins is a treasure trove for beer drinkers. Milk stout. Drink it.

Had to look hard for the Hobbit reference, thought it would be a little more cozy. Menu selection was limited and prices above average. Food was okay​, nothing spectacular. Just disappointed in general, could have been better in decor, atmosphere & food selections. Place could use a "spruce up"!

Have nothing bad to say - everyone's food was perfect. Beers were great. Atmosphere was fun - and it was just enough off the beaten track of king street that made you feel like you found a diamond in the ruff.
