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

What a great setting for a family lunch. There was so much going on in town but the food and service were both excellent here. We even got a tour of the attic. Char and all.

We had lunch at the Hoffman house (restaurant/tavern) before our 2:30 pm Hudson River Cruise on the Rip Van Winkle. The house is Circa 1711, but the property has a pre revolutionary history dating back to the mid 1600's. The house is two stories with the kitchen in the cellar, quite common with historic homes. Two rooms on first floor... More

Dinner for family and friends. I had the burger which is one of the best around. Great fries too. Others had Mahi Mahi and salmon. All was very good, fresh, tasty, and reasonable. Good drinks and beers. Ginny is a wonderful hostess and owner. A regular spot for good food.

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.
