We recently moved here from Atlanta Andy this was our first dining experience at Shawnee Hereford House.
Our server was Zack and he was fabulous - very friendly, attentive and courteous.

The food was outstanding!! I had the baby back ribs with fries and my husband had 5e best KC strip steak he ha s ever tasted. Salads we’re tasty, fresh and a generous portion.

We highly recommend Shawnee Hereford House !!

I love that Hereford House made a high school dance special so that we could send a group of Freshman high schoolers and they had one price including dinner, dessert, tax, and tip. Took out us parents worrying they wouldn't tip enough, etc. Not only could they accomodate a reservation of 12 kids, they were willing to move our reservation back 30 minutes when some of the kids were not ready on time.
The kids loved the restaurant, loved the food, and felt special. They said they didn't think the server liked them much but I can't imagine a group of 12 14/15 year olds that have never paid themselves at a restaurant would be the best diners.

Was excited to celebrate our anniversary at a place we hadn't been before. Waiter brought us the wrong salad dressing and butter, but no bread for it. My shrimp scampi had no taste. Make better at home for half the price. Carrot cake was amazing.

We came here to celebrate my parent's 55th wedding anniversary and they did what they could to make it a special night. The only problem we encountered was with my husband's steak salad. The meat was cooked perfectly but was very tough and chewy. They did make it right by not charging for the meat.

Decided on this well known steakhouse for my birthday dinner with family. Food was delicious! Service was friendly although for a very quiet Thursday evening could have been more attentive. Did not get asked about refills on wine and long wait between finishing meal and getting check. Also, no complimentary birthday dessert?

At my dad’s suggestion, we ate dinner here on a visit to JoCo and were surprised at how good it was given that it’s in an odd location and attached to a midrange hotel. The service was competent and very friendly and we all enjoyed our food. The mashed potatoes and the short ribs stood out particularly. It’s a little pricey but a decent value for the quality of the food and service.

We asked to be seated outside and we for a while the only party there. The server took on the additional work cheerfully and we tipped accordingly. But we went long stretches with no attention. Food was good,but steaks were not as well-seasoned as I was accustomed to downtown. Overall, a good experience and the price was fair.

Food was very good and lot of it. Took some home However the service was slow. It was almost 2 hours before we got our main entrees.
Since my wife and I ordered from 2 for $75 menu, I could not use my KC ORIGINAL reward points toward the price of the meal. I had to add points. I was told the 2 for $75 menu was discounted so I could not use my reward point. At a different Hereford house, I believe I was able to use my reward points toward the price of our dinner. We ordered from the 2 for $75 menu.

Outdated decor. Plating was subpar. Steak tasted good, but was overpriced. Food did not LOOK appealing. Service was decent, but felt like I was at Applebee's or similar place. Needs updating.

When I walked into Hereford House, the host & hostess were just about to seat the couple in front of me. While I waited at the hostess stand a few servers walked by & one told me someone would be right with me. An elderly couple walked in after me & the woman started heading toward the bar area. When the hostess returned she went right over to the elderly couple while I was still standing there right in front of the hostess stand! I said, "Hi, I have a reservation".
We sat at the bar and ordered the shrimp cocktail, the chicken & berry salad & the fish & chips. Normally when we have shrimp cocktail they are prawns. The 6 tiny shrimp for $14. was not worth it at all! I can buy a whole bag of this size for $7.99. The chicken served on the side of the berry salad was soo tough that we struggled to cut it with our steak knife! Needless to say, we were not very satisfied with our visit however Zack, the bartender does a great job.

Extremely disappointed with our experience and food. When ordering a $45 steak, you should be blown away. It was the most underwhelming ribeye/filet I’ve ever had at a restaurant. No sear on the steak and not a drop of seasoning. Literally none. Had to salt and pepper the meat myself. Also, the meat was just not good quality. I will not return.

Excellent old school service with each course timed well. Was not a fan of the featured wine but that is not that fault of the restaurant.

The steaks are always predictably delicious and cooked perfectly. Waitstaff are well-prepared and usually extremely service-oriented. Generally, the noise level is minimal as the guests are adults. This time had a table of six small children in the room which made for difficult table conversation.

I would do Hereford house more but 2 things hold me back and I go elsewhere.

The lack of appetizers their choices on the men Or undesirable what they need is like regular devil day eggs without the salmon and maybe a cheese ravioli platter something other than just seafood.

This is the holy restaurant I know that I go in and order a strawberry lemonade that’s not an alcoholic and can’t get a refill they only limit you to one no free refills every other restaurant it’s either at least one free refill or unlimited free refills.

We went there to use our gift cards not expecting much but Sunday brunch items and service exceeded all of that. Would definitely be returning again. Special mention to food items like Calamari, sautéed mushrooms and chicken and waffles.

We've always liked Hereford House for their steaks and prime rib. We had the mahi this time and it was very good. They were out of rosé, but they had a reasonable Chardonnay. We'll definitely be back.

Our server was EXCEPTIONAL! She checked on us the perfect amount of time -- always coming back quickly with anything we needed. House salad, Caesar salad, prime rib, twiced baked potato, stuffed mushrooms (highly recommend asking for creamy horseradish to dip them in -- Yum!), onion rings, and brad pudding -- all were scrumptious. We'll be back :)

The steak was pretty dry even being medium rare. The side portions were tiny for the price. Overall not a bad meal but definitely not for the price, would expect service and food at a Applebee’s or something.
