Great prime rib which they are known for and wonderful salad bar. There is a nice fireplace in the center of the dining room and a nice bar area. They are connected to a hotel...I can't remember which one.

Sunday night 16 OZ Prime Rib Dinners were for the dogs! Food took way too long to get to the table, and both Prime Ribs were cold to the touch! Before my wife and I got our meals, the couple behind us was served the Prime Rib Special. IT WAS COLD, and was sent back. 20 minutes later, our table... More

We were given the menus. Then all hell broke loose. There are no prices listed on the menu. I asked the waitress how much somthing cost. Her... More

Bob P. has the golden touch when it comes to places to dine. This one has the best prime rib in Rockford and at affordable prices. Atmosphere is a reflection of the days gone by when it was the time to dine and lounges was where we met and talked. Very affordable and great staff!

The last remaining Hoffman House. Stuck in a time warp. Salad bar with 1000 island. Beets and marshmallows. Broccoli raisin salad. Ribs were good, slathered in sauce but frankly overcooked. Must have had 50 items on the salad bar.

This is a Rockford Tradition, a place of great food! The salad buffet is wonderful and the Friday night fish fry is the best in Rockford! If you like prime rib this is the place to go! I have never had a bad experience here! You have to try it when you are in Rockford!

Thier food and salad bar is like no other in town. Thier steaks are cooked perfect. Thier meats are aged beautifully. Thier large prawn shrimp are amazing. Everything is excellant. We love coming here and look forward to every visit. We wish it was a little cheaper, however we understand. We will be back as this is my father's favorite... More

For years, Hoffman House has been excellent. The food was wonderful, worth the price, and served in a comfortable atmosphere. Unfortunately, things have changed. As menu prices have skyrocketed, the food flavor and quality has significantly decreased. Their popular salad well includes fewer items than ever before. Most uncomfortable though is the new, overly aggressive push by management of drinks,... More
