Food was very good in this old, but restored late 17th century stone house. Also very cozy. Friendly staff. However, although very common many places you go post-Covid, service was extremely slow. Hoping we get past that problem soon. Otherwise a must stop for the...history and satisfying food.More

Excellent dinner for 2. Great extra dry dirty Titos Martini, good bread, and a delicious meal. The salmon and red mash was awesome. The coconut chicken was almost as good as the salmon. Place has really stepped up their game. Waiter was excellent and pleasant.

A cut above, Hoffman House is worth searching out. Don't let the stone building built in the 1600's fool you. The food is solid. My wife's crab quesadilla was her favorite quesadilla ever--with super high quality crab as the star. The patio was the perfect...blend of outdoor freedom while still being covered. Thank you Francisco and Ava for your gracious hospitality and great food.More

Great service, excellent food, delicious coffee. Beers was good and atmosphere unlike any other restaurant. Built in the 1600s, the atmosphere was interesting. Huge fireplace for the winter months, and definitely 5 star quality food. Would absolutely refer others to go there. My girlfriend had...the best duck ever, I had the shrimp and onion soup. Loved the waitress. Very personable.More

We went for dinner and chose outdoor seating. Service was accommodating. Server answered our many questions with warmth and professionalism. The french onion soup was delicious. We were pleased with most of our dinners.

Went here with 3 other ppl. 2 of us had the fishermen's platter. Everything was cooked perfectly. Best seafood I have had in a long time at a restaurant. Another person had the salmon. She said it was very good. My girlfriend had steak. Unfortunately,...it was overcooked. She wasn't happy with it and didn't eat much of it. Hoffman house is a pretty solid option for dinner. Wish her steak was cooked like she had asked for though.More

We chose Hoffman House to meet with family from out of town we hadn't seen since the beginning of the pandemic. Kingston was a halfway point between us since they flew into Albany Airport. We were meeting for lunch. Our family arrived way before us...and ordered their food: London broil and cheese steak sandwiches. Roll was very hard and stale and they warned us that food quality was mediocre . My mother ordered fish and chips. The waiter said that it was an excellent choice. when the fish arrived, it was clearly frozen from a package and tossed in the fryer. Dry, overcooked w/ a freezer taste. I ordered the turkey club. The waiter assured me the turkey was fresh roasted and not prepackaged deli meat and I asked since I don't eat processed meats. What I received was cheap over processed turkey. It was served with pre-seasoned spicy coated curly fries. I ate part of my sandwich since I was very hungry. We didn't make an issue of the food since we had a short window of time with our family that afternoon and didn't want the poor food to be a focus. Really disappointed since Hoffman House looked like a cute inn with solid food. The food was of poor quality, definitely not freshly made, something you would get at an institution or hospital, not pub or fine restaurant. We will definitely not be back.More

My girlfriend took me out to dinner here to reward me for helping her do work around her house. Food here is always good. Bartender makes great drinks. Prices are a little high but I think all restaurants have increased their prices so its not...just the Hoffman house. I still highly recommend this place for dinnerMore

We had a great meal here. Waldorf chicken was fabulous but the fresh bread was to die for. Food was hot and definitely homemade. Desserts were lovely. Service great, friendly, and knowledgeable.

While Hoffman House is to be applauded for accommodating outdoor seating during this time, when you are ignored by waitress (with long hair braid) after you know she looks over twice with no acknowledgement. But, she chats with another table not pertaining to their ordering...several minutes. In fact, that couple looked over our way several times. This is not welcoming or helpful to business. We left and will not be going back.More

Outdoor dining in a convenient location. Very good food, gracious service. The restaurant is located in a 17th or early 18th century building. We would return.

We had a delightful experience here. We sat outside in a park like setting. My husband and I both had steak au poivre and we loved it! Our son has coconut crusted chicken that was great also. The cook is so creative.
