We have eaten here a few times a year ever since we moved to Torrance in the 1960’s and discovered it. The food was very good, the menu and the quantities were extensive, and the environment pleasant. Several years ago the company opened the hugely successful Lucille’s BBQ restaurants, and their interests seem to have turned away from Hof’s Hut to some extent. Many of them have been closed (at least one I know of was converted to a Lucille’s). The Torrance site is one of the few still open. In the last few years I have noticed the dinner menu offerings have shrunk, the prices seem to have risen more than others, and my enjoyment of their food has diminished a bit toward the bland. Tonight, my wife ordered the turkey dinner with all the fixings like mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, and vegetables. She ate it very slowly, picking at it, and then packed up the rest of it to take home. I ordered the salmon with jerk seasoning and rice pilaf, and caesar salad as an extra. The pilaf and the creamed corn were good, as was the salad, but I expected the jerk salmon to be pretty strongly seasoned and it was not. If tasted like just a plain cooked fish, bland. My son orders the baby back ribs every time, and he continues to like them a lot. The service is still good, the place still looks good, and it was pretty full on this Saturday night. They still have their birthday card program, which we and many others still use.
