Been going here for the 1/2 price prime rib after a Chiefs win. The prime rib is delicious and ample. Served with mashed potatoes that are great and for $2.00, you can add a wonderful salad. You just cannot beat a deal like that. Always friendly staff and great service. What a great promotion. I hope they continue to do it in future years.

Was shown to my table as soon as arrived. Waitress came and took my drink order, then came back and took my meal order. Had a Cesar salad, along with a perfectly cooked medium rare KC Strip, with a twice baked potato. Was a very nice meal.

Food was terrific. Waitress was outstanding as the place was packed and she had several tables to take care of. She couldn't have been nicer nor more efficient. We had a nice booth for two that seemed to provide some privacy. All in all, a great experience.

We enjoyed a most delightful and delicious dinner with friends and will certainly look forward to our next visit at Hereford House in Leawood. The food was excellent and the service was great. Lovely evening all together with friends where conversation was so easy as it is a quiet atmosphere. Wonderful experience!

About 10 minutes after being seated, we had to hunt down a host to let a waiter know we were there (and at 5:00 PM, they weren't busy). The food was served fairly quickly but wasn't all that good, compared to a much more reasonably priced Texas Roadhouse. We do not plan to eat there again.

Food and dinner service was quite good, as always. However, restaurant did a poor job honoring reservation. Wasn't seated until ~30 minutes after reservation time. Will probably go to other Hereford House locations in future where I'm hopeful they are better at honoring Open Table reservations. They shouldn't over book...

I guess my expectations were too great. We sat near the kitchen which was very noisy, and had a waiter that never checked on us. Total time we were there was two and a half hours. We had to flag our waiter down to order our next round of drinks. Every time. My steak, and my wife’s salmon were tasteless. We didn’t even finish our meal. They were nice enough to take $30 off my bill, and gave me gift cards to return on another date. I left the gift cards because I won’t be returning.

Server was not able to answer questions about menu items and it was my impression that he was not a new server. The only thing he was able to offer about the salmon entrée is that he had not had any complaints. Two of us ordered prime rib and received KC strip instead. One of us asked for a baked potato with toppings on the side and had to request two of the common items usually provided at HH for toppings. One of us asked for raw and creamy horseradish and was served mayonnaise instead of raw horseradish. Apparently the reason for the error was the raw horseradish was placed in the wrong set up condiment container. I am concerned that this server did not recognize the difference. ???training vs server

We reserved a small room so it was very quiet and we could talk. I took two relatives in their late 80's and we don't come here unless we can get a room as it is super loud and you can't have a conversation. Our server was great. We all had the 2 for dinner special which was very nice. They need to eliminate the curb by the front door so people can drop off handicapped/elderly people. The only handicap parking is way down from the door - too far for them to walk.

We waited and waited for our entrees; the reason given—one in our party had ordered
Fish and Chips. Meanwhile, the two chopped steaks ordered, as well as the burger,
were all dry and tasteless. Hereford House needs to get its act together... What
a disaster and embarrassing with guests from out of town.

Although we have eaten there several times and would rate most visits a four or five, this visit not so much. There were two couples, appetizer were served 20 minutes apart. Gave one set to someone else and had to refire, but no explanation til asked. Entres were lukewarm. Server was scarce and appeared overloaded and dinner took almost three hours😟

We would always go here for anniversaries and valentine's day. I was disappointing though on the 2 for $75 . The last few times we have been there we would get their cheesecake as our dessert option and got the sparking red wine that was paired with it. That was probably the best paired food/wine combo I have ever had! Unfortunately they no longer had this option and had to settle for chocolate brownie..... :( Other than that the food was excellent as well as the staff that took care of us.

I've been going to Hereford House, literally for decades - first downtown, now mainly this one and I've never had a more disappointing meal. Rib eyes that were at least 1/3 gristle and blatantly tenderized, either chemically or mechanically. What has happened to this place? Prices are up, salads, no longer included, one side instead of two and the quality has really gone done.
