This was probably the worst Easter brunch I have ever had. Too many people, cold food and a waiter that ignored our table but happily took an 18 percent tip. I will not be back.

18% gratuity for 3 people having brunch buffet. Lines at the buffet were way too long for mediocre food at best. Will not be returning for any occasion.

Easter brunch was a complete disappointment. Overpriced and room temp food, overdone prime rib. The only good thing was the well made mimosa.

Had a reservation sat us in the section behind the bar away from everyone. Had to request to be moved then had a hard time finding us a table that was suitable. Food was over salted. Waitress explained to us that there would be a 18% gratuity added in automatically. We’ve dined here before and leave well over the 18%. Would not go back here for a brunch.

Everything was good but the menu stated there would be turkey at the carving station and there wasn't any turkey. The roast beef was too rare for my taste.

Server was lackluster. Not personable at all. Buffet had great prime rib but that's about it. Lacked quality and variety. Desserts were good but lacked variety as well. Not what I would expect for Easter Brunch at the Hereford house at all

Our party of 6 was well satisfied, one steak came out more done than ordered and was prompyly replaced (the manager came by with a complimentary bowl of Steak Soup so the diner would not awkwardly wait while the rest of us enjoyed our meals), the food was great, the service was great and we will be back soon.

kitchen and server need better communication. Our steaks arrived before we could finish our salad. Our table for 4 was too crowded to allow the salad plate and dinner plates on the table. We pretty much ate a few more bites of salad while holding the plate, then just gave the remaining salad up. Waiter apologized for thwe ruh, but no offer of any kind for a discount, dessert, etc.

We had a great dinner celebrating 2 birthdays. The food was great and the service was wonderful. It is always good, but the gentleman really was engaged and attentive. The staff easily accommodated a last minute addition without batting an eye, which was really appreciated. I can't say enough about how great the staff and the food was. The prime rib which is a family favorite was absolutely divine. Great job!!

I was going to get the Filet for my meal and I asked the server which steak had the filet included with the bone because I wasn't sure ! he told me the $49 special was the one that had the filet included! when I got the steak it was very fatty around the edges and had very limited edible meat and definitely no bone-in filet like the server said ! I would definitely not recommend the special they had Saturday night for $49

Food was excellent. It was the best dessert we ever had! There was one small problem and they went out of their way to correct the problem and even go over and above what they needed to do. It was a great birthday lunch, we loved it. Our waitress was wonderful!

Hereford House has long been a favorite. It does go through some throws, probably due to personnel churn but over all remains a favorite.

I was totally surprised that making a reservation for 7 ended up getting us a private dining area. It was definitely appreciated as the noise level was really low and we were able to hear each other.

Been coming to Herford House for years. Not our overall favorite, but good food at fairly reasonable price. Went last Friday for dinner. Wife had pasta, I had mahi mahi. Wife's was good, mine tasted like garlic with a side of garlic. Awful. Chalked it up to experience. Got our bill. HH is part of Passport Card (BOGO), they are also part of KC Originals. We have a KCO gift card (not for points, paid for with CASH!) Waiter said can't do both (won't honor CASH PAID GIFT CARD?????) Said ok, just use the Passport I guess. When he brought the final bill he said they automatically add 18% to Passport transactions, but he is used to getting 20% to 25%!!! How rude and assuming!!! Needless to say never going back!!!

Went to dinner for my wife's birthday...Everything was going great until time to pay bill...We have a passport dining card which we have used numerous times at this location...We also had a gift card given to us as a gift. Management refused to take both the passport card and our gift card because gift card was bought at Costco. Makes no sense at all !!!!! GM Gene was rude, unapologetic and possessed no customer service skills

Our group so enjoyed the evening and the privacy and "low noise" of one of the private dining rooms, due to one of our friends who has hearing aids, it was just ideal for the 6 of us. Everyone loved their dinner and our server was wonderful, too. Very attentive and professional. We hope to do it again, and soon. Always looking for a nice atmosphere with good food and that's not so pricey.

The steak was unseasoned and not very good especially for the price point. The service was spotty at best, tne only bright point is they fixed a problem with no question. The sides lacked any flavor at all. The desserts were the only thing worth eating. Save your money and go to Longhorn.
