The Hoffman House never disappoints. The food is always delish. The steak au poive is my favorite. The service is always attentive and efficient. The atmosphere brings you back to colonial days. Wide floor boards, fireplaces, outdoor patio..really..check it out.

Someone wrote “peacefully quaint”. It sums it up. I felt tucked away in a little piece of Kingston History. Staff is awesome, food is awesome, the history of the place and historical objects around the restaurant is fascinating.
