Someone wrote “peacefully quaint”. It sums it up. I felt tucked away in a little piece of Kingston History. Staff is awesome, food is awesome, the history of the place and historical objects around the restaurant is fascinating.

The food is always great. The atmosphere, dining in an historic home, adds to the unique experience of "The Hoffman House". I have had larger groups too. And friends have had meetings there. Definitely encouraged. In the summer, dine on the patio!
