Hereford House - Shawnee reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Disappointed for the Price

    Dined on 4/5/2014
    The last couple times there, we've been less than impressed with our steak. We decided to go back because Hereford House is always what comes to mind when we think of a good steak at a moderate price in this area and we thought maybe last time was just a fluke. This visit, my husband and I both ordered KC Strips, Medium cook. We received ours to the table somewhat tough and definitely well done. The service was great and the appetizer (spinach dip) was delicious, but I was craving a great steak for lunch and walked away disappointed. I suppose we could have sent them back, but that is so wasteful and with two kids in tow, we didn't really want to wait for a refire.

    The "dinner for two" is perfect for my wife and I. We are creatures of habit and usually order the same thing. Boring maybe, but when you have marvelous shrimp cocktails, delicious and perfectly prepared filets then why try anything else! And we consider the meal to be a really great value.

    We were entertaining friends from Florida, so looked for a dining place that they did not have locally. They were surprised and awed at the find....out in the country. The food and service were excellent and it was an enjoyable evening of visiting and enjoying our food and drink. And yes, one could carry on a conversation without noise interference. Very nice.

    Dined here twice over the past 5 wks. First trip was with group of 9 lady friends during mid-week. They seated us in a private room so noise level was excellent. Drinks and appetizers great. Entree and dessert good. Our server was excellent. Second dining experience was my spouse and I on a Sat. night with reservations. Bar not crowded but we weren't served timely. Had dinner in the main dining area. Music not good at all. Waiter spilled my husband's beer all over the table/menus but quickly forgotten. We had the 4 course "Dinner for 2". Fried calamari great. Salads sub-par. Entrees good but jumbo shrimp not jumbo. Dessert good. Waiter smelled like cig smoke. Overall experience fair to good but too pricey for the quality that you receive.

    Our experience was very nice. Our waiter, Zach? was quite attentive and we enjoyed the dinner for two. If there was any concern, it would be the toast tips; fresh bread would have been better. The toast tips were like croutons; too crunchy. However, the rest of the food was delicious. Thank you for a lovely night out.

    The restaurant was active, but still provided a nice atmosphere for dinner. We arrived 1/2 hour early, but was seated right away. The drink and food options where fantastic. The food was prepared promptly and it was very good. We had the dinner for two and we both had enough food and greatly enjoyed the appitizer and the desert.

    The dining experience was phenomenal! Our waiter never hovered over our table, but always showed up somehow whenever we needed him. The food was also everything I expected and more. I highly reccomend the grilled bacon appetizer. My only criticism is I felt the tables were a little close together, so the setting was a little less intimate than I had hoped, but overall it was very worth the money.

    Made reservations for an early Valetines Day Dinner at 4:30 (learned that lesson in the past!). So did a lot of other people, so we were not able to get a booth with the view to the south. There was no pressure from the Waitstaff to hurry (even with a lobby full of people), there was time to enjoy our wine before dinner arrived. Ordered off of the $65 Dinner for two (Me - Prime Rib, Jodi - SeaHogs). Food arrived properly prepared. We were quite satisfied with the food and service, and let our waiter know that this was one of the top evenings we have had at any of the Hereford Houses (and that we have never had a bad one).

  • A wonderful Valentine's Day dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    A perfect place for romantic dinning. The soup (sweet potato clam chowder) was outstanding, we had never had it before so the waiter (Sam) gave us a sample. Love that Sam. The prime rib was the best I've had lately. There aren't many good prime rib spots left in K.C.. Last but not least, Sam our waiter was most helpful and attentive. Couldn't ask for better service. Will return many times in the future when looking for a memerable dining experience.

    We've been to the Hereford House in Wichita and this place in Shawnee is a poor imitation. At 7PM on a Saturday night they ran out of prime-rib. Steaks (ribeye) were thin but did have a good flavor. Cesar salad was nothing more than a opened bag of romaine, bottled dressing and small store bought croutons. I'm not sure our server understood much because we constantly had to remind him of everything and reask for everything, which was really annoying. Oh and there was some crazy lady with wacked out hair walking around looking at all the tables quite a bit. Don't know if she was an employee which made us feel really uncomortable and did not set a good tone. I would not recommend this restaurant and we will go elsewhere for a steak again.

    I am hoping that the main problem was restaurant week but it really wasn't that busy and our waitress was still never around. It took 15 minutes for her to come take the check after we had put down credit cards and our sodas were on E for most of the meal.

    First time to this Hereford House. I used to enjoy the original very much. The food was not worth the price. We ordered three orders of Medallions and they were requested Medium, and they were all different. None were overcooked. The sauce ruined the flavor of the medallions. The server did a great job. No issue with the service. The Shrimp-Artichoke Dip was not very favorable. Not bad, but not great. The mushroom appetizer was good.

    When compared to the variety offered at Fogo de Chao for the same price during Restaurant Week, Herefords was overpriced. But, who wants to eat at 10:00 or 10:30 at night which were the only open tables on the evening we desired.

    Steak was cooked great. Carrot cake was cold. Reservation was at 1:30pm. By 2pm, we were the only people in the dining room. Consequently, we rarely saw our server, or anyone else who worked there. Our server never smiled, and seemed irritated that we were there. She wasn't around to fix the cold carrot cake. We had to go up to the hostess stand to pay. .

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 1/18/2014
    While our server was excellent, and the atmosphere friendly, this restaurant does not live up to its billing as a great steak house. The cuts of meat were run of the mill, with little to no flavor. One steak ordered medium, came out medium well, which should not be happening at a "true" steak house. The salads and sides were okay, but no better than you would find at your local Applebees, in particular the salad. For the price you expect a bit more, and it just wasn't there.

    We had a nice meal and the entree was not served until we were almost finished with our salads. The steaks were excellent, flavorful, tender and juicy. The only real complaint was the twice baked potato which was dry as if it had been sitting around for a while. The service was adequate and we enjoyed the evening.

    Came to Hereford House in Shawnee for the first time with our two children after Christmas Eve candlelight service. We were looking forward to going to a "nicer" place with our kids to celebrate the holiday. I'm going to summarize the experience since I'm limited on space: -reservations and seated right away -ordered sirloin, prime rib, kid-size prime rib, and PB&J. -Seated by a large window and it was cold, put our coats on while we ate. / -Prime rib over cooked to MW, ordered Med.

    Don't waste your money at Hereford House Shawnee . Extremely over priced for poor quality food. Expect your house salad to be pre-made salad out of a bag. Let's not forget the "heat and serve" rolls included with your meal. The steamed veggies were frozen broccoli with small prepared carrots out of the bag. Just like the store. The excellence of "The Hereford House" is long gone!!

    Always a pleasurable dining experience. Their "dinner for two" is perfect for us. They allow substitutions so that we can add a second appetizer instead of getting a dessert! And the good is always excellent.
