Our plans changed last minute and we had nowhere to go for Thanksgiving. We did not have reservations, but they found a place to fit us in. The buffet was amazing and somewhat overwhelming. The turkey was a little dry from being under the lights on the buffet, but it happens. The ham and roast beef were awesome. There were... More

5 of us met here because it was a central location. The food seemed pricey so we stuck with the salad bar which had a good selection plus soup.

Tasty prime rib and a salad bar that offers a little of everything... even pate! Dinner includes salad bar and soup. They serve fried dinner rolls with powdered sugar and a delicious butter. You need to be hungry! Very good.

I just had the salad bar. It was small with not a lot of choices, but what was available was alright. The place is known for it's prime rib, so next time I'll have to try that.

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.
