This Inn/Restaurant is a National Historic Landmark over 300 years old, which was lovingly restored by a young couple in 1975 & reopened in 1977. The charming atmosphere of old wood décor (floors & beamed ceilings) is like being transported back in time. Food is always top notch, as is the wine selection by the glass or the bottle. I... More

We had read the reviews and looked at the menu before we went for our anniversary dinner. However, we didn't feel that the restaurant lived up to our expectations. Our food was good, but nothing special. The service was very good, and the restaurant itself was very cozy and charming. We had a nice dinner, but I think we were... More

I go here often in the warm weather because I like the patio so much. The inside is very cozy too in the winter with a fireplace. For lunch I always order the same thing, French Dip. It is the best in the area. However the menu is diverse.

I adore the French Onion Soup, the Buffalo Calamari is favorite...the salmon dinner special with the Dill sauce is always an exceptional experience...I love the... More

My wife and I ate here on a Tuesday night. Nice cozy fire, booth, old rustics Dutch house. Hears where it goes down hill. Even though it's slow as heck there are two waitresses and a host on, yet, takes a good five minutes before we are approached. Next, the peroni I order is not cold and my wife proseco... More

You will not regret your visit to this family run restaurant. The bar is small, but the restaurant is big and beautiful.

A friend who has an office right around the corner from the Hoffman House, suggested a quick lunch there. It was an unbelievably cold January day, so dinning next to the fire warmed us perfectly. The building has great character, and the staff encouraged us to walk around the see all the rooms . Our burgers and sandwiches were huge... More

The Hoffman House restaurant is located in a historic building in the Stockade Area of Kingston. The dining rooms have fireplaces, the upstairs is a nice place for a small gathering, and during the summer the outdoor patio is a great place to eat. Whether going for lunch or dinner the food is always exceptional. The menu is not overwhelming,... More

My wife and I stopped in the Hoffman House this past weekend after a weekend getaway to the Catskills. We dined at this beautiful, old restaurant two years ago upon our last visit to Kingston and loved the food and ambiance. This time we only stopped in for a couple of beers and had a nice chat with the owner,... More
