    Cooked reasonably well, slightly underdone on a couple of bites, but that's better than overdone. good flavor for a ribeye. Sides were roasted well.

    Service was terrible. Salads came after our entrée was brought...then one salad was wrong, when corrected had no salad dressing. AND, they charged us extra for the salads since they were a substitute for one of our sides. Server never checked back. Baked potato was cold, un-cut, and had no butter or any other toppings. High dollar steak was only fair quality. When the manager was informed by server, the manager NEVER came to the table to check to see what the issues or concerns were. Simply told server to take $25 off entire meal of 6 people, which was over $350 in total. An insult at best! We have eaten there many times with no or only minimal issues, but this one did us in...will not be going back...not for the quality one pays for and should expect from a higher dollar steak house. Outback or Longhorn does a much better job for much less money. Sad and extremely disappointing. The Sunday evening manager of that particular Hereford House is lazy and not manager material.

    The only issue is your hosts when you walk in...the two seemed like it was a bother to ask us anything...I had to indicate to them first that I had a reservation...they should have said Welcome to Herford House...then when we left they should have said Thank you and come back again...again they looked irritated they were having to work. Thankfully the server and food was awesome. You need to look into how your hosts act. Also when we came in one appeared to be more concerned in getting her lid back on her drink rather that why we came in.

    Hereford House - ShawneeResponded on January 9, 2023Hi Maureen, We are extremely disappointed this was your experience when visiting us. It is our top priority to provide our guests with quality service right when they walk in the door and sincerely apologize this visit fell so short. We have passed your feedback on to our managers at the Shawnee location and hope you will give us another chance soon. -Maya

    I'm sorry to say that my husband and I were severely disappointed in this meal. We were celebrating our 37th Anniversary and had chosen Herford House because of the Prime Rib rave reviews I had seen online. We were not impressed with it at all. We had similar at standard dinner restaurants and way better ourselves made at home on our Rotisserie. The stuffed mushroom appetizers was very disappointing for us. Others may like it. But for us it was dry. We are used to a buttery or cheesy moistness. These were not. And they had a dry bread crumb on top which seemed to make it worse. My salad dressing was a cheap French dressing found in your average grocery store. My redskin roasted potatoes were dry and under-seasoned. I had to ask for some butter to just get them down. My husband only enjoyed his mashed potatoes. When we did receive our $150 bill they gave us a $10 gift card toward our next visit as an Anniversary gift. Well, who wants to visit again after that. I will say that our waiter Joel did his best and we liked him. Even when the kitchen delivered my husband's food and had someone else's meal sent out for me. Joel was active in trying to set that right. We won't be back. If it weren't for a very good experience at another Herford House 25 yrs ago I'd not recommend them at all.

    Just a soup and salad cost as much as a dinner. Paid over $50 for one rib special for $15 and soup salad. Charged $6 to substitute potato. Had a great happy hour that was very popular and they dropped it. Very disappointed

    Burnt calamari which we sent back and substituted the stuffed mushrooms. Bread crumbs were burnt tasting but not worth complaining about at that point. My dirty martini came in a champagne flute and was sweet? I took that to the bar and had it remade. Problem solved. Wrong drink probably? Steaks were tender but no seasoning whatsoever. My daughter had the salmon but and it was the best thing ever. I guess fish is the way to go at Hereford house. Won’t be back though

    I have dined at the Hereford House over 20 years and this was absolutely the worst experience I have had there. Crab cakes appetizer was terrible, as in mostly breading and little crab to be found and extremely dry, entree came 2 minutes after salads were served so cold steak, not good. No pacing of meal from apps to entree. Server training is definitely lacking.
