Had the most wonderful meal at Hoffman House this evening. Started out with a mango shrimp salad. I had fantastic crab cakes and hubby had salmon with an orange balsamic sauce. We had a side of snap peas and radishes. Such a wonderful dinner.

So happy to hear you enjoyed your dinner at The Hoffman House. We finally had a nice weekend to be outside on our patio. Hope to see you again soon.

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...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.
