GREAT BURGERS, original historic stone building, beautiful antique bar. We sat outside under canopy on back patio. Very close to all Stockade District buildings. The owners and stall are very friendly!

I was there with 4 friends for lunch. We sat on the beautiful patio. Staff and owners are always friendly and make you feel special. Great burgers, Cobb salads, Chimichangas, and omelettes. They have a good bar as well. Good value and always fresh tasty food.

During a recent stay in Kingston we chose to have dinner at this restaurant because of its high Trip Advisor rating. And indeed, many aspects of our dining experience were just fine. The historically significant building provided an enjoyable ambience, the menu was appealing, and we received very good service. We ended up feeling, though, that the restaurant's true nature...

As it was Sunday, and as the ambience is that of an old English Inn, we all opted for the Roast beef dinner. It was really quite excellent save for some twerp putting rosemary in the Yorkshire puddings. Still, overall, very well cooked with honest fresh ingredients, service with a smile and prices that are in keeping with the fare.

Consistently good food and ambiance. We have visited during the winter when the warmth of the multiple fireplaces just enhances the already friendly wait staff. But the outside patio can't be beat for summer dining!! The diverse menu has something for everyone. I have many favorites, it's hard to pick just one. A must if you're in Historic Uptown Kingston!

The service is good, as is the food. The inside facilities are dated, but that is part of the charm of this old house. When available, outside seating is very nice.

A very good restaurant. It has charm and great food. It is a nice place to go for any occasion. The warm weather has outdoor seating if you like that. The inside has historic charm and the owners are charming people. Try it. I bet you won't be disappointed!

Yesterday's lunch waitress recommended Hoffman House for dinner at any time; she said it was one of the best places in town. Tonight we went there. We weren't particularly hungry, so we ordered from the bar menu; we each had a burger. The burgers came with fries and lettuce and tomato, and they could be topped with mushrooms and onions... More

Great food in a historic building. Friendly staff. They will make a meal you request that is not on the menu. I went in almost a year after requesting one and they remembered and asked me if I wanted them to do it again. I did.
