This place is a "Must Go To" place. The food was outstanding and the service was exceptional. The Salad Well was in itself a meal. The Prime Rib was the best I have had. You won't be sorry you went. Check out their menu on line. I will be visiting the Hoffman House on my next visit.

Ordering the meal was easy, I ordered about a week ahead of Thanksgiving. Picked it up without a hitch. Everyone was super nice. We had a great Thanksgiving meal (Turkey, all the sides, and pie). Everything was packaged very nicely and the price was very reasonable. All I had to do was unpack it all - and we were good... More

This place used to be the primo place in town, especially for prime rib but it just isn't what it used to be. It's still good but not what it once was. The salad bar still has the top line stuff and the double baked potatoe is still there. Service is still superb but the furnishings need brightening and the... More

The Hoffman House is a Rockford tradition going back decades but now with new twists that would keep us coming back time and again if we still lives there. We were there in September for lunch. First, the bread is to die for, reminiscent of beignets at the Café Du Monde in New Orleans. Next, comes the huge salad bar... More

We love the salad bar here which comes included with the entrees. Bountiful selections of fresh veggies, house made concoctions, a wierd but yummy cheese spread, baskets and baskets of different crackers. Also included in the price is soup of the day which you may have as much as you want. Your server will bring a warm basket of fried... More

ALthough the wedding event that I attended was great and We had a great time, the staff was less than enthusiastic and They dropped the ball badly on some things, one being the chocolate fountain that my cousin had dreamed about having at her...

Two restaurants in one place. The Bar/Food room and the Main Room. Same menu is available. The Salad Bar is the one thing that really stands out. There is not much appetite afterwards but you must save something. The Shrimp is the Highlight. Whether you get the dinner (7) or the all you can eat special (Monday's), they are great.... More

Have to say the prime rib was excellent. All you can eat and a terrific salad bar! Service was excellent and the little rolls with the honey butter are the bomb! If you are in the area give it a try!
