This is the 4th time we've eaten at the Hoffman House and it didn't disappoint. The food is excellent, and the service is excellent. This visit my husband had the large prime rib and I ordered shrimp. Both meals were superb. Each time we're either in town or traveling through...it's a stop we just have to make! You won't be...

Was here two years ago and the food then as was now is excellent. Fantastic salad bar and the large portions of prime rib was cooked perfectly. The rolls are to die for as are the deserts. One doesn't go hungry here. So nice to see that things don't change with time. The wait staff is pleasant and efficient. We... More

One of Rockford's "Old School Standard Restaurants" but consistently great food and service. Busy night with many out of town guests during a soccer tournament weekend, but were pleasantly surprised with a short wait and great service. Cocktails served promptly despite the busy crowd. As always the salad bar was great with super fresh fair.Outstanding escargot appetizer followed by the... More

As an old school buffet, the Hoffman House brings it. Everything under the sun! The buffet is out of this world, but the center piece if the Prime Rib. get the entre, have the buffet. You will not leave hungry and be completed satisfied.

This is a restaurant with adjoining "sports bar". We ate in the sports bar but ordered off both the bar menu and the restaurant menu. The dining room side looked comfortable and well lit. The sports bar is just that....lots of TVs, video poker machines and a jukebox. The service was good, portions were good sized and the prices mid-range.... More

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
