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

The service was great, the food was great, and we always make it a priority when we get down to KC.

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!

Hereford House is like coming home. From the moment you enter, everyone is happy to see you. Our waiter and the manage were very attentive. Food was delicious as usual.

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...

I was very disappointed.First off difficult to understand the server with his mask on. I felt he just went thru the motions and did not work to earn a tip. Food was average. My mashed potatoes were cold and my brothers fish was bitter and the side order was forgotten by the kitchen.My mashed potatoes were cold. The restaurant had only been open for an hour. Orders should be checked before they leave the kitchen. Will be awhile before I will consider coming back.House needs to up the game and get back to 5 star service at the Shawnee Location. I forgot to mention the server forgot to bring as plates for the roles and to ask us if we wanted to order dessert.

This was a terrible meal. The food was overpriced for the quality. Our steaks were overcooked and flavorless. The sangria was watered down and tasteless. The stuffed mushrooms were nearly burnt. This was supposed to be a special Father's Day meal and it was absolutely horrible. This chain is horribly overrated. We will not return to this restaurant again.

Disappointed in the table we received. We were put in a room with a large, noisy group of over 20. It was hard to have a conversation. and distracting . Probably will choose a different restaurant next time. Hard for two people to talk.

Food was cold, took forever to get drinks and food. Our server did apologize but our appetizer was freezing cold and couldn’t eat it.

Our meal took over two hours and was not the best experience for our anniversary
