good experience

Restaurant was near my hotel. Glad I tried it. Looked at posted prices and was about to leave until I noticed what was included in the price. Soup was good. Salad bar had lots of variety and I like being able to choose my own ingredients and amount. Bread was unusual but very good. Entree... read more

My wife and I went here for dinner with friends that we hadn't seen for around 15 years. My wife being a vegetarian, had just the salad bar. The other three of us had prime rib. My piece was cold and tough, very little flavor. I've had better at chain restaurants in Rockford. The horseradish sauce was very good. Everything... More

My rehearsal dinner was hosted at this venue. We had a private banquet with family style service. The staff was very accommodating and patient. The food was delicious!

We enjoyed the best prime rib in the whole area. And their famous salad bar has never been better. The service is the friendliest in town and prices are so reasonable. This was always my late mother's favorite place to dine in town. From great soups, salads, steaks and twice baked potatoes, you go away very satisfied.

To be fair, I wish I would have written a review in the past. I have dined at Hoffman House many times in the past. It is considered a "Rockford Institution", the place to go for prime rib. I suppose, since the Rockford area really doesn't have much to offer for dining, unless you are into fine dining at a... More

Went with 13 year old son. Sat in the bar area to watch Blackhawks. The dining room looked old school out of date formal. The bar was sports bar style. The music was so bad that we got a kick out of it. It was somewhat loud but we didn't mind. Waitress was good and helpful. We split the chicken... More

So this is a hotel restaurant. It's a big place and always full of people. If you're hungry, come here, because they have large portions and a sizable all you can eat soup and salad bar. The prices are average for Rockford. Atmosphere is a little dated but nice and it feels cozy despite the open size. It's a good... More

We've lived in the area a long time and have gone to this restaurant many times. The food is usually good - especially the "Well" which features a variety of salads and soup including liver pate which you can't get anywhere else in a local establishment. The "Well" can be ordered separately or usually comes with a major entree. Prime... More

Hoffman House is know for their Prime Rib, excellent and the salad bar is also excellent. We were recently there for our Christmas Party and several of us ordered Lobster. It was awful, not cooked done, I've had better Lobster at Out Back at a 1/3 of the price. They obviously dont know how to cook Lobster. It was the... More
