Have been there at least 100 times. Food is always a little bit better then good. Service is always ok. Went on a Sunday night which 1/2 off wine night but has been changed to 1/4 . However I didn't receive either. Entrees took over an hour to get. Not sure that I will go back.

I ordered a medium rare steak, it was well done. I was drinking iced tea and was given water for a refill. I ordered a beer, never received the beer. The only thing that was right with the meal was the mashed potatoes, and they were ok at best. It was the first and last time I will eat there, the absolute worst dining experience I've ever had.

Was seated in a room with a table full of older couples that were with some kind of club I assume and they were very loud and really should have had their own room. Not exactly the atmosphere I had hoped for when we drove 75 miles to this restaurant for our Valentines dinner.

Service was good. Salad was wilted. Not fresh. Our appetizers were cold but the waiter got us a fresh, hot replacement. Entree’s were good. Dessert was delicious. Our waiter was excellent.

The food and service was amazing! We took advantage of the sweetheart special. It's the best spinach artichoke dip I've ever had and the best salad I've had at a restaurant. Waitress was very nice and attentive. Quiet and comfortable atmosphere. We definitely will return for another special occasion.

Went for Valentines Day. Ordered my steak medium and it came out...medium! Not to mention delicious! The service was amazing. Made a mistake on the order but she came out quickly and explained her mistake and worked to make it right. (Hey, it happens sometimes. As long as you try to make it right...) not our usual “go to” for dinner but we’ll definitely be back.

Normally love the Hereford House and dined there many, many times but never on Valentines day. Will not do that again. Seated in the trail room right next to the door and never felt like we could enjoy the date night and valentines day. crowded and noisy, Will certainly go back but not on Valentines day...

For our wedding anniversary, we choose the Hereford House this time and we were not disappointed. Our server was very new and in spite of it being Valentines Day and a very busy night, we feel he did a pretty good job of keeping up with everything. Our courses arrived on time and not too early or too late. Our prime rib steaks were perfect as ordered.
We always enjoy going to the Independence House.

This place was the best for my birthday. Me and my girlfriend went to eat here for my birthday and the food was amazing. It took a few mins to find what we wanted cause it was our first time going. I gotta say this place is worth going back again.

We absolutely loved our meal this past Saturday at the Hereford House. The menu was a bit on the pricey side, but it was a date night so we were expecting to spend more than a usual evening out for dinner. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the service was good. This was our first visit to this location and we only live 15 minutes away. We have been missing out. We will go back soon.

Much compliment to our server. She made sure that when I wasn't satisfied with my food she recommended something else to try and it was great. Very pleasant young lady.

It was beyond my expectations the food was so good. The braised beef ribs were so tinder. And not extra salty. And try the carrot cake my favorite part was the walnuts. Me and my husband were there 3 hours and it felt like no time at all the service was great and the courses came in a timely manner

Service was exceptional and the food was amazing. Everything came out in a timely manner and our waitress checked on us just enough to make sure we're doing okay, but not so much it was distracting. The food tasted very good, nothing was under or over seasoned. I highly recommend the spinach and artichoke dip!
