We found the building just charming, and ate on a patio at the back, pleasant on a warm day. The menu is quite varied, food was good (the like souffles were wonderful), but our meal was somewhat spoiled by two very loud women drinking nearby and shouting periodically. Not only did the staff not ask them to be considerate of... More

We had not been here in awhile. Always remember it being good. This time it was great from start to finish. Our waitress, Erin was wonderful. She was friendly, knowledgeable, attentive to our needs. We went all out (our anniversary). Clams Casino were very good. I had the duck w/a pineapple teraki-delicous. My husband had a pasta dish w/shrimp, chicken... More

Sitting in a building dating from the 16oo's and more authentic than most of the Williamsburg restaurants, this is a charming old stone house. The food is very good. Does not allow for separate checks... not good.

It is very nice to hear from someone who truly appreciates the architecture of the early American stone houses. I am sorry about not being able to offer separate checks when you were in. We hope to remedy that in the future. More

I have been to Hoffman House many times with both family and friends.

We dined there on a busy Saturday night. Service was slow given that there were so many people. Nevertheless they were courteous, friendly and took their time to explain us the menu. There are four smaller cozy rooms. Three real wood burning fireplaces and interior is historic but not overwhelmed with plunder. Menu is not too big (which we like)... More

We used to visit the HH 20+ years ago and at the time it was an ok place to dine. This past summer we decided to give a go again and we were pleasantly surprised. Very good food and service. Prices are a little above the average but they do have a great historic stone house to dine in or... More

We've been patrons of the Hoffman House for 25 years. The meals are always incredible, from the appetizers to the main courses. The London Broil has always been my favorite meal and the coconut shrimp are excellent.

Came here for dinner while spending one night in Kingston. This historical house was the perfect environment to eat dinner by a raging fire. The history of the building is on the menu. It traces it's owners back a few hundred years. As for the food it was great! I had special rangoons and the duck entree. Really tasty.

Siting here today in 70 degree weather it's hard to believe we had those fires going just a week ago! I'm sure this won't last but it does make me look forward to summer and our outside patio! Glad you had the opportunity to stop by and I hope you visit Kingston again soon. More
