Contemporary American
The House of William and Merry serves contemporary American cuisine prepared from the freshest seasonal ingredients procured from local farms, providing casual fine dining at a reasonable price. Chef-owned by the husband and wife team, Merry Catanuto and William Hoffman, who live on the property, the restaurant is a remodeled farmhouse on the edge of central Hockessin. Dine in a comfortable home atmosphere in one of the two dining rooms, the porch, or the bar. When you arrive, you can see right into the all new, modern kitchen. Full bar service is available including wines by the glass, microbrews on tap, and specialty drinks. Or, take a walk around back to see the herb and vegetable gardens.

Tuesday through Saturday we serve lunch and dinner. On Sunday, we serve brunch followed by a prix fix supper in the evening.

    Really enjoyed our evening dinner at W&M. It was or 49th wedding anniversary. Our dinner was beyond excellent. The atmosphere was casual and very relaxing. Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. I would recommend W&M to all for a fine dining experience.

    We usually only review restaurants we like, so they all have 4 or 6 stars. This place would get a 6. One of the all time best restaurants ever. The Wolf Fish was better than perfect and is highly recommended. The Duck was crispy, resting in a delicious cherry sauce. It was a great evening and we still cannot stop talking about how much we liked it.

    This was our first time there. I was a little nervous when we were seated in a full & rather loud upstairs. The concern ended there. Our server, Danny, was wonderful, engaging & knowledgeable. Then there was the food. Awesome. Innovative, delicious, beautifully plated. Arrived promptly & hot without feeling rushed. Little pricey but well well worth it. We will definitely go back. Great anniversary dinner❣️
