Cocktail service was slow, food service good. I may try the happy hour, a little pricey.

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.

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.

This was our first time at Hereford House. We had a reservation for my husbands birthday. We were seated and served promptly and they already had the high chair and booster seat set up for the kids at our table upon arrival. Food was fantastic, steaks were exceptional, and our drinks were kept full. We will be back!

We have gone to Hereford House for years, and we have not had a bad experience in a very long time. However, our evening didn't start off too great but did get better as it went on. The hostess that sat us was very young and unwelcoming when we arrived and was not friendly at all. We sat at our table for almost 10 minutes before our server showed up and he had no idea what the Sunday special was and did not offer to find out. We ordered drinks and then sat there for quite a while before they came so we ordered appetizers and dinner at the same time. My beer came and tasted funny and I had to ask him to replace it. When he brought the second one, it still tasted funny so I asked for a bottled beer. At first, he acted like it was an imposition, but I have to say that as the evening went on, he redeemed himself and took very good care of us. We realize that it is hard for restaurants to find help at this time, but we just expect a little more than we got from a more upscale restaurant like Hereford House. We will come back because we know that typically the service is great, but had this been our first experience, it would have been our last.

Staff was overworked. Not enough help to deliver good service. Portobello mushrooms were not good and sweet potato fries dry and not much taste. Food is usually very good but not tonight. As well as, service the same, disappointing all the way around.
