This is not a quiet steakhouse. A television directly above you doesn't lend itself to conversation. If you are looking for a bar type atmosphere to watch the game, this would be a good choice. If you are looking for a more subdued meal where you can talk, this isn't it.

Enjoyed eating in the bar, Royals on TV. Four course dinner for two, $80 is an excellent value. Prime rib was tender, flavorful and perfectly prepared. Wednesday’s special is half price wine by the glass, which we took advantage of. Great evening for our first dinner out in over a year.

My salmon tasted fishy and that's not good. The staff was more than glad to take it back and asked to replace it with something else , which was kind. The manager then came over and I in error misspoke and said "I had a shellfish allergy" but before I could finish my sentence (which would have been this causes me to have a sensitive palate.), the manager jumped all over me "Why didn't you tell us! Did you tell US? Don't you realize what that can do to us?" I told her no Then she turned and walked off. As a little TV character would say: "How rude!"
Now to my hubbys filet: aged yes and left out to age into the next century. Not tasty considering he paid extra to get the filet and crab and mushrooms. Strikes are adding up!
Carrot cake is the best!

Right when we walked in, despite having a reservation, they told us we had to be out the door within an hour because there was another reservation coming in. Our server was fantastic, but the food wasn't that great. The steaks weren't prepared as we ordered, and they really didn't have any flavor at all. The sides were just average sides you could get anywhere else. If you want to spend $120 on 2 adult meals and a kids meal, I highly recommend ANYWHERE else.

Great service in the bar area. Pleasant and helpful waitress. Food excellent as always. Our only complaint if we had one - is we were seated at the very first table by stairs. Its always livelier to be seated further into the bar area in a booth. It was a little too quiet :)

Absolutely one of the best meals I have had at Herford House. I ordered the Filet and had them put the Dijon & Brown Sugar topping on it. It was FABULOUS! For my sides I had the house salad and the mashed sweet potatoes. Of Course the House Salad with the house dressing combo is always good. The mashed sweet potatoes were like dessert! Don't forget the rolls! They were served piping hot with a kind of Honey/Cinnamon Sugar?? butter, which was also like having dessert before dinner.

Our server was terrible! She acted like she didn't want to be there. She told us the steak soup was brothy...should have listened to her it was filled with peas and burnt steak. Steaks were okay but not like usual. Baked potato was shriveled and looked at least several days old. mashed Sweet potato's were very cold. She joked about others helping her bring the wine bc she moved very slow. Another waiter asked and a different person delivered. asked for our rolls 3 times! It took us one and a half hours to eat what we always do in an hour for 2 people. YOU were NOT busy it was just our waitress. I know it's harder with covid but she didn't deserve the tip she received which was 20%. We have never been so disappointed in Hereford house before. She had a hard time hearing us too and it was NOT loud. Disappointed and not sure we will go back. Manager did stop by to say HI!
