Stayed at the Quality Inn. Hoffmans and a little bar are inside. Don't often go to bars/restaurants located in motels but gave it a try. Happy I did!!!! Happy hour is draft beer 2X1 from 4 to 7 pm with a good selection. Had a few Spotted Cows and saw a sandwich delivered to the gentleman seated next to me.... More

Traveled to Wausau for a wedding and rehearsal dinner was at the Hoffman House. I was blown away by how great the service was. Dan was the best bartender I've ever had. He was on top of getting everyone anything they needed and super nice to talk to. Patty the bar manager kept everything going smoothly. On Saturday night they... More

It seems like this restaurant might be making a come-back. My chicken cordon bleu sandwich was excellent. The service was great from our server, Mary.

Went here for a birthday party they gave us a private room and did a great job of seeing to everyone's needs. The food was hot and the portions were quite generous. I cannot speak for the restaurant overall, as this was not a usual dining out experience but can honestly say we had no complaints.

We recently heard the Hoffman House was under new ownership so we decided to give it a try. Although prime rib was the feature item we opted for something a little lighter. I ordered a Caesar Salad with chicken. It was an entree sized salad with an ample portion of thinly sliced, freshly grilled chicken. I liked that the dressing... More

We had excellent service and everyone on the staff was delightful to deal with. Food was served promptly and was very good, the soup was great as usual. We would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

I was so happy. Our meal was spectacular and we must say that we have never had prime rib that... More

I heard a lot of people talk about the Hoffman House Friday Buffet. I thought our family would go there to eat. I arrived at 3:48 PM. Walked in.. The buffet looked fantastic. After a few minutes of standing in the lobby, an employee tells us they aren't open until 4 PM (in 9 minutes).. She told us to leave,... More

Surprisingly very good food for a reasonable price. I had the steak salad. The steak was done as asked for and very tender and tasty. My wife had the Reuben with fries and it also was very well done.

Bad all around. Only 3 items were full, potato wedges, a frozen mix of broccoli/cauliflower, and lettuce that was so brown it should have been tossed a few days ago. In 30 mins no items were added, they even had no plates. The beef soup looked like just broth with frozen peas in it and the potato looked like frozen... More
