Always a delicious prime rib. I ordered MED rare and it was pink and perfect. We enjoyed the 1/2 price prime rib after our chiefs win. Always excellent service.

There were 6 teenagers there for Homecoming. They loved it but said their server was a bit rude to them. They thought maybe she didn’t like having to wait on 6 teens. They loved the food.

The Hereford House remains an outstanding place for a delicious meal with excellent service. So many places have cut back on service and quality during this pandemic, but the Hereford House maintains it high standards in every department.

Had an absolutely wonderful meal. Shared a great celebration moment with friends and family at the best place! Emma was our server, I can not say enough positive about her. She made our experience perfect! She was knowledgeable, attentive, friendly and funny! Not only did she provide wonderful service but as we are here on a vacation she provided us with a suggestion on where to go, which we definitely be doing!

This is a must for my wife and I! We come here at least twice a year, for birthday or anniversary. We simply love the food, the service is impeccable no matter who waits on you. The ambiance is one for those special occasions. We will continue to be customers as long as they’ll have us!

The service from Matt was great! My husband's steak was done just right for him but mine was supposed to be Medium well and it was very well done. Matt kindly got me another one, gave me a free dessert, and took 10% off our tab. Thank you, Matt!

Andrew was a great waiter and very knowledgeable of menu items. I must say I was sad to here you had to eliminate your number one onion rings in Kansas City from the menu.

I reserved my table online several hours before my reservation and requested a booth. When I got to the restaurant I was told they would not be able to give me a booth because they gave them to other people despite the fact that I had reserved mine several hours in advance. They stuck me in the big room with the windows with a large party that was so loud it made my head spin. I was trying to read a book and couldn't even concentrate. The atmosphere really took away from my meal. Other than that, food and service was great.

We had an early dinner for their "816" special on Sunday late afternoon. Only problem we had was some confusion about who was to wait on our table. After being quickly seated, no one came to the table to take our order for about 10 minutes. Place was pretty empty at 4:30, so we don't know what the problem was. Finally went to hostess to ask her to send someone to our table. After our waiter arrived, service was excellent. We had the Chicken Caesar Salad and Salmon Salad (got the last piece), served with delicious warm rolls and butter. Due to our wait, the nice waiter comped us a piece of their yummy Carrot Cake! Couldn't refuse that:)

Early dinner and the restaurant was very quiet since we dined early. It was very clean, waiter wore a mask and we felt safe. Can’t go wrong with filets and they were perfectly cooked and delicious. Still one of our favorite restaurants and we’ve been dining at the Hereford House since 1963 when they were located downtown.

Another fine dining experience at The Hereford House in Independence. Probably due to the virus conditions, the HH wasnt very crowded and we were seated at once. The service was fast and our selections arrived just in time and too early. The steaks we ordered were perfect in our opinion. We'll be back, as usual !
