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.

Pleasant neighborhood bar with cool trivia playing bar mates...great non political fun! In these turbulent times, it's nice to just relax, play some cards from trivial pursuit and just enjoy the company of those at this cozy Old Town bar.

Honestly hate to even leave this review but the fact that the food was subpar kinda made me do this. We got there got our table and placed an order for soup as a starter The soup tasted like it MAY have been yesterday's fixings :( I so wanted to like this place because of the other reviews I read.

Food was decent & beverage listing was ample and unique. Visiting from the Seattle area, so it was nice to see so many Pacific NW beers available. Cilantro fries were nice.

Good enough food. A bit pricy, but plenty of choices. Mushroom pizza was really good - I ate it all! My friends had salads and a Monte Christi sandwich that he said was really good. Fun, quirky atmosphere and a good wine/beer list.
