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.

Great little pub with a range of specialty bottled beers and ciders. Zombie Killer was an interesting cider, not sure it was worth the $16 price tag though. Food was great and the service good. Busy, but not too loud to have a conversation at your table.

I came here with family and we enjoyed ordering a few appetizers and our meals were delicious. The service was good and they did not rush us.

When you have a restaurant named after a hobbit, it better be either great for kids or good food. This turned out to be a good pub/restaurant. They also have "gourmet" pizzas, which are decent. There was a bit of kitsch with many of the menu options with names referencing Lord of the Rings. Besides the pizza, they had a... More
