We recently went to Hoffman House. I ordered a Philly cheese steak sandwich...meh Don't get me wrong, it was delicious, and the meat was cooked perfectly, I'm just not sure it was any better than a food truck in NYC at a portion of the price. It just wasn't wow.

I was so surprised by all of the great reviews after eating here. I would have given it 2 1/2 but it does not let you. They give you a very nice size of bread to start. I ordered the clams Casino and was pleased with the taste. They served the very tiny clams so it really does not even... More

First time dining at this establishment. I did a Trip Adviser search because I was going to be in the area and I am so glad that I did. The service was excellent and the food was superb. The Seafood platter was fantastic. The three people in our party all ordered the same and everyone raved. The house dressing was... More

Hostess and waitress were friendly and efficient. The garlic London broil was prepared perfectly and was excellent. We dined outside on the patio. The 18th century building was well maintained and quaint. It's adjacent to the cute shops in the historic part of town.

We stumbled upon the Hoffman House while spending the night in Kingston. It's in a lovely, restored stone building in the uptown area. The places by the waterfront looked touristy but this restaurant was the real deal. Service was friendly and professional and the food was excellent. The calamari appetizer came drizzled with cheese - unusual and very tasty! The... More

The selections we chose for the rehearsal dinner were perfect! Choices for our guests were London Broil, Chicken Marsala and Grilled Norwegian Salmon. We had delicious appetizers beforehand & a salad for everyone. We had extra family members show up & the staff brought in extra chairs, & we squeezed everyone in. The staff was amazing & so helpful!

With another couple we had decided to visit nearby Kingston for dinner and wanted to try a spot none of us had been to before. After looking through Trip Advisor we decided on Hoffman House on Front Street. Interestingly enough although all of us had been in Kingston many times, none of us could place the restaurant.

Great place to sit out and enjoy an afternoon while eating. THen in the winter time it is a beautiful place to sit by the fire place. Lots of history in this building as well as so many places in Kingston. Come enjoy the history and take a brake and have lunch at the Hoffman house.

My brother-in-law was in Albany on business so Kingston was a halfway point for my husband and I to meet him for dinner. I thought they would both enjoy the history behind this quaint spot. We had a lovely evening, the service was excellent, the food was wonderful and the atmosphere relaxing. Would highly recommend a visit.
