Feel like you've stepped back in time. Nice bar, hearty meals, and excellent corned beef on St. Patrick's day. Hope Dario is bartending-excellent mixologist

Love coming here to eat..and especially on early summer nights in the patio. Service is always friendly and good...food is wonderful the atmosphere is fantastic. Lots of History in this building ...so glad it hasn't been gutted and modernized like so many other restaurants.

These past few days it sure makes you long for summer nights on the patio! At least the fireplaces are getting a good work out! More

Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Hoffman House. The beautifully restored historic building provides great atmosphere. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We were thrilled to be seated in front of the large open fireplace on a very cold evening. The special mussels appetizer with hot Italian sausage and tomatoes was particularly tasty and the salads...

The Hoffman House is a true piece of American history. Restored with exceptional care for detail, this 18th century tavern and its menu will delight any traveler. Very reasonable prices, adequate seating inside and out, and efficient, friendly service. There is a small parking lot and street parking. I have never been disappointed when I stop there while traveling from... More

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

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
