There was Restaurant Week. Juiciest pork chop I’ve ever had. Mitch, Server, was perfection.

The only complaint is the horrible blue green lighting over each booth! Absolutely kills the ambiance. We all agreed it felt like we were in a warehouse having steaks! Lighting needs to be warm and welcoming! Please take the advice!

We always enjoy HH. I was unhappy that my KC Originals points could not be used during Happy Hour. The points have already been devalued from a few years ago. In the past, you could use points toward the whole bill. Now you can use points for up to half the bill and only up to $100. I fully understand restaurants have had a really tough time during Covid and we have continued to use HH curbside all during the epidemic and tipped well. I do think the points usage system is inadequate. We should be able to use them during happy hour!

Loved everything! The service, the food. Everything was excellent
except the lack of prices on the menu. I noticed that when I ordered but I was prepared to pay for a special occasion. My meal for salmon was $26 and my guest was $41 for a steak?! Same amount of food on both plates. I didn’t understand if it was the cut of steak or a pandemic price due to supply chain.

It was a date night for my wife and I. We had a great time. Our waitress (Jaimy) was wonderful. She was polite, responsive and just overall friendly. She didn't bother us too much and she made sure that we had everything we needed/wanted. The food was fantastic, especially the boneless wings. Hereford House is one of our favorite places and experiences like this is why.

Great as always.
Soup of the day was lobster bisque……..should have gotten the steak soup as bisque was subpar.
Service was exceptional.

Food was good. Waiter told us about Happy Hour, took our drink orders, then charged us full price! Fortunately, we checked our bill, but he had already run our credit card. It took forever to straighten out and refund our overage on credit card. Sure put a damper on our evening out with friends.

We went for Christmas Eve and was excited for a nice dinner. We were seated and it was 10 minutes before we had someone come to out table. Another 5 before we even had water. Dinner was good it just did not get started well. Any that set the tone for the rest of the dinner. We won’t regrettably be going back.

Ordered the filet & lobster. Steaks were great as usual. Lobster was the smallest I’ve ever seen served at a restaurant. Literally one small bite! My loaded baked potato was “black” inside as well. I get that these things happen occasionally, but server and management seemed totally indifferent. Not even an apology. Will not return. Too many great options in KC to settle for poor quality and service. Disappointing!!

The service was outstanding however the food was less than desirable. I had the center cut filet and if it weren’t for the garlic butter the steak would have had NO flavor. The loaded baked potato was butter, cheese, and sour cream only. No bacon. Will most likely avoid returning when craving a steak.

Started by seating us (party of 4) where the sun glared in and was a real distraction. Appetizers were great. Steaks (all four) under cooked by a level (medium rare was rare, medium was medium rare, etc.) Service was good except for charging for items returned on the bill. When pointed out they did correct the bill.

We chose a 4:30 seating time, ordering from the Happy Hour menu, which is varied. Three of us had the Steak Dijon, and two the Country Fried Chicken, and we were not disappointed. Service was great, and we were checked on twice by managers to make sure everything was okay. We love this place!

Not great. Started with us getting there at the exact same time as another party of 4… we had reservations while they didn’t and yet they got seated 15 minutes before us. Had mozzarella balls as starter and they were ice cold in the middle. Ordered kids cheeseburger and were brought adult burger with pimento cheese which wasn’t going to happen with a 7 year old. Other child ordered side of cheddar ranch potatoes and was brought fries. My “loaded” baked potato was not hot, had something on top that I guess was cheese but was cold and flavorless, a little dollop of sour cream, and a few green onions. No butter, no bacon, etc… not what I’d call loaded. My wife had the salmon burger and liked it. My meatloaf was okay, not great, but okay. Boys got an ice cream sundae with their dinners which was just a scoop of vanilla ice cream with a tiny bit of whipped cream. First sundae I’ve seen a with no flavored topping (chocolate, caramel, etc…). Overall I was underwhelmed. Definitely not worth what they charge.

It was a group of 6 celebrating two birthdays. I ordered the medallions medium rare. The first time they came out one was medium well and one was well done, so I asked them to be remade. The server took my entire plate instead of just the protein, so I had nothing to eat while my family finished their entrees. Once my steaks came back out, one was rare and the other was BARELY seared, which is ridiculous considering how long I waited for it. And by the time the bill was already paid. We weren’t offered the opportunity to order dessert or after dinner cocktails before the check was dropped, which we wanted. The management team took more off the bill than my entree was worth which was nice, but it doesn’t make up for the fact that we went in for steak and dessert and not only did we not get dessert, but I had to leave without having anything to eat. We were excited to try Hereford house, but unfortunately we’re given no reason to want to come back.
