I’ve always enjoyed and recommended Hereford House. I’ve dined here twice since the pandemic and it has been just as enjoyable. Distancing, servers in masks and gloves, it all felt very safe and comfortable and the food quality is still the same: GREAT

Unfortunately I was not impressed. The quality of the food was not worth the price we paid. The only thing that came out hot was the appetizer. The entrees seems like they were sitting a while before they made it to us.

Service was fine but slow. We were in no hurry on a Sunday night but were in the restaurant 2hrs. Our waiter, Doug, was fine but seemed to be covering all tables himself. Understand the virus is no doubt impacting this normally excellent restaurant. Food, as always, was outstanding.

It's obvious that Hereford House is committed to going the extra mile to draw in and retain customers during these tough economic times brought on by the ongoing pandemic. Our desire was to simply go out and have a nice dinner, and not be too distracted by the "other stuff". Hereford House staff did a great job of doing their best to deliver just that. We had a reservation, we arrived early and they were able to seat us. The staff was great/attentive/friendly, and the food was delicious like usual. No complaints. Consider supporting your local restaurants and businesses!

Been to this location a few times and felt it wasn't as good this time. Price vs portion was below par. Ordered crispy tater cheese bites for app. Came out hot outside, frozen in middle. Waiter returned them and brought second batch, same result. With other restaurants in area I probably won't be back soon

Always a great experience. We were seated in the bar area (due to social distancing maybe?) and the bartender was also our waitress. Wonderful meal, great service!

this was a date night - my husband's food came and it was way over cooked - they did replace it at no charge but when this happens it ruins the evening. We eat at this restaurant about every two weeks and this was the first time it was bad. I guess every place has a bad time now and then.

We really enjoy Hereford House Shawnee. Never a bad meal and always great service. The new mask and social distancing mandates have changed some how we interact but they have taken every precaution adding gloves for their staff as well as masks and do social distancing well. We know these added things make hosting/serving customers more challenging but they do it very well. We would highly recommend them to anyone. We always take our out of friends there.

Had to wait too long to finally get order taken. Waiter was only average. We ordered a second round of drinks and had to remind him about it. Food took way to long as well. It is not that busy now due to virus and it was very slow. Food was good though. Probably will not visit anytime soon.

We were seated inside by the exit door to the patio. The patio was very busy that day and the door was being opened continually. I’m not quite sure why anyone would be seated there. It was most disruptive to try and celebrate a birthday.

The service for this meal was ok. I think the waitress had too many tables to take care of. I also found black hair in my food and would have said something if the waitress had been more attentive.

The RibEye all three of us ordered came out as KC Strip, but it was evident my just looking at it that they either bought some cheap stuff or just threw on the grill what they had available. It's always a hit and miss with this location. If you go there, don't have high expectations!

Fantastic experience in Covid times. Steak was perfect and service was excellent. My only issue was the smoked bourbon was a little too smoked. Plus, we were seated next to a soccer team there for happy hour specials. They should seat those there for dinner away from the happy hour people.

Social distancing and restaurants is rough. I actually visited Hereford House on back to back nights, once with my family another alone. They’ve done a really nice job of accommodating the social distancing requirements and 100% of the employees were very careful to follow them. Good food, great service in a hard time.

Food was excellent, atmosphere very agreeable, and everyone was very friendly except the waitress. She was mostly indifferent and not attentive. To be fair, front desk and management both were great, as you would expect. Maybe the waitress was inexperienced...
