4 for dinner. Love this place. Very local, good people and good food. Excellent martini, good beers, etc. Salads were tasty and fresh. We had 4 different chicken dishes. All excellent and wholesome. The ladies had leftovers. Hoffman house is always a winner.

I just left the Hoffman House a little while ago, spent about 3 hours getting to know a few of the local family medicine residents over dinner. The dining experience was cozy and fun. It feels like a tavern with warm wood accents and wood floors. We had the private dining area upstairs. The waitresses were all sweet and accommodating.... More

Hoffman House is a lovely atmosphere but definitely overpriced for quality of food. Went for a luncheon recently, and was just so very disappointed. Pasta of the Day was a joke....overcooked rubbery scallops (just a mere 5 little ones) barely edible. Reuben sandwich was on rye bread that was toasted (and burnt) instead of a authentic grilled Reuben sandwich. I... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Hoffman House and so happy you share in the love of the historic atmosphere we created when we restored this building 40 years ago. We truly value the opinions of our customers and we are disappointed that we did not meet your expectations. As the currently ranked #2 restaurant in Kingston... More

High quality cuisine at affordable prices. And you'll be dining at historic landmark to add to your experience. Really interesting building and interiors. Just pay attention to the details and keep in mind that it's all authentic, going back more than 200 years. You'd need to make a reservation, especially on weekend., Everything was delicious. Lamb of leg was flavorful... More

We originally set out for a different restaurant which was closed, so we walked down the street to Hoffman House. How lucky were we! It is a beautiful historic house originally built in the 1600's. The menu has the history of the house which was a good read. The people who work here were friendly, nice and great at service,... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat with our business clients and friends. The food is really great with an enticing menu - always consistent in quality. The service is exellent and you can't beat the ambiance - whether dining by the fire in the 18th century stone house (circa 1711) - or on the beautiful covered patio... More

So glad you enjoy your visits to The Hoffman House. Although we were actually serving on the patio today I do believe our fireplaces will be most popular for a while now! More

We liked it so much we went twice in one week. The first night my duck was excellent. Hubbies had a fine prime rib. The second evening my Apple walnut chicken was overbearing and thick. The sweat potatoe mash was too spicy for me and my heartburn. We loved the bartender and the staff were friendly. It's in a great... More

I am sorry your second dinning experience was not as favorable as your first. The St. John's chicken is indeed very rich with the blue cheese & walnuts and the special starch that evening, the cajun sweet potato mashed au gratin is a bit spicy. I do hope you visit us again when traveling to Kingston next time and we... More

Tried them for the first and I was very pleased. The food was just excellent. I thought the portion to price ratio was very good. The portions were just right. I loved that the Hoffman House is an actual historic building. The staff is excellent. We were seated promptly and our server paid just the right amount of attention. Our... More

We were in a large group, so had a set menu -- I can't comment on the prices as we didn't see them. All the food was good (but the servings were very big), and the service was very friendly. The room was too hot, however, even after we had the fire turned down and the heat turned off. The... More
