Bilbo's has been around in Kalamazoo for far longer than the LotR phenomenon has been in the theatres, the original location being near Western Michigan campus while a satellite exists up in Portage on Westnedge Ave.
The original store is where it's at though, as the theme is much more prevelent, and the lights dimmer. Bilbo's is mainly known for it's delicious pizzas (available in wheat crust, make sure to try it if you try anything there) with the standard toppings.
Service is usually quite good in my experience, but that's probably because I'm usually there with a large group, kind of hard to ignore 8 people at once :-)
Bilbo's also has a variety of house beers with appropriately 'cute' names such as "Wizard Wheat" and so forth in addition to many locals on tap if you'd rather stick with a stand-by.
Overall highly recommended though, their pizza is the best in Kazoo, and the unique beer is another nice bonus.

Over all a great place after any kind of event. You might see children, college kids, lunch time business professionals and evening social crowd. It can be a little expensive so just check the coupon section of he paper for deals. Plus the house beer is good but you really can't find a bar in Kalamazoo that doesn't serve good beer on tap.

Stopped by here for a quick beer but did'nt try any food. Locsted in a strip mall this palce is not very inviting. Looks to hold a few hundred diners. Has a cheap plastic sign out by the road with the name on it. Foremost it is like an Applebees. I think they had about 4 of their beers on tap. Just average beer. With so many other choices for good beer in Kalamazoo I'm not sure why they even bother making their own beer. Not really a place I would stop at again. Just wanted to see what it was about.

Bilbo's is a fun place to go on occasion. This would not be one of my top places to go, but I always enjoy myself here. Occasionally the crowd is overwhelmingly full of college kids and I find myself rather annoyed when that is the situation, but usually it is at least tolerable and most of the time it is quite enjoyable.
The food is easily the highlight, however, there is nothing to really complain about. They brew their own beers which are decent. I've had many different items on the menu and find that each is just as tasty as the next. Perhaps the only thing I'm not thrilled about is how close to campus they are which attracts the college kids.
