Food was over cooked, and dry. Service was very, very slow, and they didn’t clear dirty plates or empty glasses, even when they stopped at the table. I ordered my steak medium and it arrived very well done. The salad was horrible. We ordered a wine that we are used to drinking, and pretty sure they did not give us the wine we ordered. When tried to talk to manager, all we got was excuses, excuses, and no accountability. So sad.

Have been in past. Picked this place based off past experience. This time waited nearly over an hr for our main course. Server had too many tables and didn't fulfill his duties. Food was not worth money spent. Do not plan on coming back anytime soon or will visit Independence location instead.

Great steakhouse, Fantastic Server. Kelly was an absolute professional. She handled challenging customers (primarily me) with ease. We were there for a birthday celebration and had a great time. Top notch all the way around.

Everything was perfectly prepared and presented. My guests were running a little late, but the server, and the kitchen prepared and presented drinks, appetizers, main course, and dessert for 2 of our party in just a hair over one hour. They did not rush us, but had everything ready to serve just as soon as we were ready to consume it.

The prime rib special was ehhhh ok. I have had way better, and I’m sure with the special it may have been a cheaper cut of meat. As usual though, the service was first-rate. If only every restaurant could train staff to serve like they do it would be a miracle!

Made a reservation in advance and informed restaurant that we were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. When we arrived they had our reservation in their system did not mention it when seating us. Waiter asked if we were there for a special occasion and when we told him that it was our 50th anniversary he said "Oh that's a long time." We have come there before for our anniversary or birthday and wait staff usually seemed more enthused then he was this time. We asked before we paid if they offered anything for an anniversary and he said he forgot that we would get a $10. gift card for a future visit. We eat at the Hereford House quite often for lunch, dinner or happy hour and thought we should have been treated better that we were for such a special occasion.

This was a birthday dinner for a friend. The waiter was stiff and deadpan. Our salads and apps were good. Our loaded baked potatoes were dry, overly salty and withered. Not sure there was even butter. My steak was ordered med. rare. It came rare which is ok with me, but not what I had ordered. Kept asking for ice water and kept getting water no ice. Also watched this waiter attempt to flambe a brulee with a cigarette lighter actually touching the plate and dessert with it. Stick lighter maybe? I requested my friend be surprised with a birthday dessert when I made the reservation. Even checked with hostess who assured me that it had and I saw her talk to our waiter. When it came time, I assumed that the waiter would bring it but he asked if we wanted dessert. I ended up ordering the dessert which we were charged for. I longingly watched the personable waiter attend to a table of 6 and provide the birthday dessert for their table. Maybe he could offer some tips our waiter. I assume that maybe our waiter was new. And yes even though I was not satisfied with the overall meal and service I still tipped 25% . There are always other causes for unacceptable service.
I usually go to the Shawnee HH and I can assure it is always 5 stars. Wished we had made the longer trip to Shawnee. And from now on I will.

The steak with my salad was full of gristle and I could not eat it. The manager visited with me and comped my meal. I will return and have the same salad again.

Not a bad place, but ironically, the steak (KC strip) was the weak link for this meal. Everything else was very good. Wait staff attentive. Wine special good. Desert very good. Would go back and probably order a different cut.

Still an old fashioned steak house with delicious meals and generous portions. Beef was top notch. Alternative offerings are on a par with many so-called "gourmet meals" by other restaurants. It is nice to get a meal with sides-- not just ala carte prices. Substitutions readily handled. A great experience.

They were running a fifty dollar dinner for two. It was a TOTAL mad house from 3 P.M. to closing. Ran out of some items by 7:15 including lemon garnish from the bar. Service was poor but totally understood do to crowd size. Salmon burnt, prime rib very fatty but again understandable when your cooking for the same number people at a state fair.I love the restaurant on a normal day but will never attend another crazy event like Saturday Aug. 21st. Hope they think twice before they host another $50.00 dinner for two.

I ordered the twin medallions. One was among the best flavored and most tender pieces of meat I have ever had. The other piece was not as flavorful but still very good. My main issue was with the loaded baked potato. It appeared the cheese had been placed on top some time before service and was just waiting to be placed on the plate. It was not as gooey as it should have been....more of a blob. Service was top notch.
