    Our waiter was awesome!!! Their chicken wings are the best we have ever had!!!! I like my steak well done (NO pink) and they had issues with getting it cooked last night. Salmon was awesome that my husband and friend had! The meatloaf our friend ordered wasn't good and she didn't finish it, but she loved the mashed potatoes. Brocolli and Asperagas was perfect.

    If Anita H is your server, prepare for a terrible dining experience. 645pm reservation. Got sat at 7pm. Wasn't greated until 715pm. Didn't get drinks until 730pm. She didn't check on us throughout the rest of the night. A manager had to bring our meals to us that I'm sure were sitting under a her lamp for a bit. Both medium steaks were on the wing side of medium well by the time they got to us. Overall, worst dining experience ever. Very sad and disappointed.

    We came to celebrate my GF birthday. Server won't serve us drink because her laisence expired that day. But you can clearly see she is 28 on her license that expired that exact date.

    Hereford House - IndependenceResponded on January 5, 2023Good morning Alan! Thank you for bringing this to our attention and happy belated birthday to your girlfriend! Unfortunately, an expired license is not an accepted ID for purchasing alcohol in the state of Missouri. We thank you for your understanding and hope you will visit us again in the future! -Maya

    Dinner was very good except for wife’s meal. She ordered the ranch potatoes and they seemed to not be cooked all the way and dry compared to recent visits. Her sirloin was also a little overcooked from the medium rare she ordered and the meat was tough, not tender like in the past. The rest of the guests meals were very good but my wife’s did not meet the standards we expect and have always gotten here.

    I’ve had better experiences at this Hereford House. The service was a little sub par this time. Both my friend and I wanted to order something to go and told the waitress to wait until we were almost through with our meals to bring the to go orders. She brought them in the middle of our meals. The food to go sat for about an hour before we took it home. Also a diner close to our booth coughed the entire time we were there. Very annoying! Not the best experience this time. Food was good.

    Our waiter. Andrew is wonderful. It was so nice to see him again he’s always so joyful and takes great care of us. Our meal was not hot .…the meatloaf was over cooked. The gravy was not hot. The mashed potatoes were not hot. The green beans were not hot but the presentation was nice. Love sitting by the fireplace I’ve been having difficulty getting meals hot when served this last three visits. We keep trying.
