Good service and great sandwiches

Went here for a birthday party they gave us a private room and did a great job of seeing to everyone's needs. The food was hot and the portions were quite generous. I cannot speak for the restaurant overall, as this was not a usual dining out experience but can honestly say we had no complaints.

We recently heard the Hoffman House was under new ownership so we decided to give it a try. Although prime rib was the feature item we opted for something a little lighter. I ordered a Caesar Salad with chicken. It was an entree sized salad with an ample portion of thinly sliced, freshly grilled chicken. I liked that the dressing... More

We had excellent service and everyone on the staff was delightful to deal with. Food was served promptly and was very good, the soup was great as usual. We would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

It was my wife's birthday Saturday and I wanted to take her out for a very nice meal. A friend from wausau suggested The Hoffman House. We went for the king and queen prime rib. My wife was so happy. I was so happy. Our meal was spectacular and we must say that we have never had prime rib that... More

I heard a lot of people talk about the Hoffman House Friday Buffet. I thought our family would go there to eat. I arrived at 3:48 PM. Walked in.. The buffet looked fantastic. After a few minutes of standing in the lobby, an employee tells us they aren't open until 4 PM (in 9 minutes).. She told us to leave,... More

Surprisingly very good food for a reasonable price. I had the steak salad. The steak was done as asked for and very tender and tasty. My wife had the Reuben with fries and it also was very well done.

Bad all around. Only 3 items were full, potato wedges, a frozen mix of broccoli/cauliflower, and lettuce that was so brown it should have been tossed a few days ago. In 30 mins no items were added, they even had no plates. The beef soup looked like just broth with frozen peas in it and the potato looked like frozen... More

Stopped at the bar with some friends. Bartender was entertaining, and lots of tap beer to choose from. My top three beer picks were available. Two of us ordered the broasted chicken special and it was awesome. I overheard comedy night starts November. We will be there.

Sunday brunch is a bit of breakfast and then some traditional dinner foods. What we had was a hotel continental breakfast and some iceberg lettuce with multiple types of potatoes and beef of some sort. No prime rib or sliced meats. Wait staff acted out of it.

We stopped for the fish fry and found the parking lot packed. We were able to sit down immediately as the crowd was there for a large wedding reception. We selected the buffet without looking at the offering. When we went up to get our food we found that most of the pans were empty. The lettuce was dry and... More
