Great ambience in tavern area. Terrific hummus served with bread and butter so no need for appetizer. Service a bit slow but we were in no hurry. We enjoyed our fish.

Fireplaces in 2 rooms, outside patio in fair weather. Love their lunch menu. Great place to bring out of towners.

Thank you for dining at The Hoffman House, and especially for bringing in out of towners when visiting our beautiful area. We actually have three fireplaces that are indeed wonderful in the cold winter months. More

Hoffman House is definitely one of our favorite places to eat anywhere. Always consistent with a neat historic atmosphere. Prices are reasonable and service is always good. This is a place you can never go wrong. Great place to eat anytime, but during the winter by one of the fireplaces is special.

HoffmanHouse, Owner at Hoffman House, responded to this review

Yes, the fireplaces are wonderful in the winter, but to be honest I am enjoying the summer, hot as it has been, it nice to sit outside. Thanks for your response and I am glad you enjoy dining with us. More

Always a #1 stop for an excellent and well served lunch with a friend. Food is wonderful and I can sit and soak up the ambiance of an old 17th century building. If only the walls could talk. Kingston's pre-Revolutionary war buildings are the jewels in the city's crown. Make sure you check out all of Hoffman House before you... More

Yes, if only the walls could talk! I often think about that. We are blessed with many beautiful historic stone buildings in Kingston, and we are proud to be fortunate to own one that can be shared by the public. Thanks for stopping in. More

This 18th Century stone house gem actually was a Bar & Grill tavern & Inn in those old days. Lovingly restored in the 1970's one of its pre-eminent features is the old grill which secured the wine & spirits of the bar at night when all had gone to bed. Lunch is a favorite here either inside one of several... More

Happy to hear you enjoyed your visit to The Hoffman House. The Hoffman House was actually always a private residence until the mid 1900's when the last of the Hoffmans willed the building to the Salvation Army. In 1975 we purchased The Hoffman House, spent two years restoring the building and have been open since 1977. The bar and grill... More

I had a simple burger and fries. The burgers have some good topping options and the fries are the curly type and are definitely worth ordering. It was too hot to sit outside, but the setting looked lovely. Parking in back.

HoffmanHouse, Owner at Hoffman House, responded to this review

Yes it has indeed been a little warm to dine outside these last few days! Hopefully next time you come back you can either enjoy your meal outside or, if really cold, inside by one of our fireplaces! Thanks for stopping in! More

Stayed one night outside of Kingston, NY passing through after an overnight family trip. We found Hoffman House using Trip Advisor. True to the reviews we read, the Hoffman House was very nice. We were given seating on a very attractive outdoor covered patio adjacent to the historic stone building. The service was good and we really enjoyed the food... More

This is a very old, historic building. On the back of the menu is its history. I am on a special diet so food can be challenging. This restaurant was up for the challenge. I had a veggie burger with a Kale salad. I am not a fan of kale but this salad was one of the best I've had.... More
