    Wifes Steak had to be cooked three times to get a well-done steak all the way done. They just kept sending it back and putting the same steak on the grill and we ended up giving up as the steak was burnt but they did send us home with a medium steak that we could reheat up later. Service was amazing found the steak to be very bland with no or little seasoning the manager and the service was top-notch.

    Service was not as good as it usually is. We usually sit in the bar area but this time we sat in the dining area celebrating my birthday. Long wait for food then when we went to pay we paid cash. We waited at least 20min for server to say there was no change in the entire restaurant. So we waited another 10-15min to pay by credit card. We noticed a few tables in our area being waited on multiple people because of the service. Our dinner visit took way longer than it should have.

    Placed in room straight across from kitchen. Two of the drinks that the ladies had were undrinkable. Drink replacements were much better. They ran out of chilled shrimp, so brought us half an order and then 8 minutes later, delivered warm freshly cooked shrimp that was not chilled. Steaks were ok, and cooked as requested. Ribeye was a little tough, but our dogs at home enjoyed the leftovers. Side dishes were fine. Service was adequate, just not outstanding. Overall impression is food quality has deteriorated since we last ate here a few months ago. Likely not going to be a return customer anytime soon. Better options for the price.

    We ordered a special that was 2 meals on a pre-fixe menu for $80. After soft drinks, tax, tip, etc, we were well over $100. We did not receive a $100 meal. I ordered the pork chop, which was well prepared, but it was slathered with cheap brown gravy that tasted like it was from a jar. I would've ordered it without it, but the menu didn't say that it came with it. Traditionally, a pork chop may be served with a glaze, but I've never seen it served with brown gravy. They offered to remake it for me, but I didn't want to be wasteful, so I scraped it off and went on. The atmosphere was very "Ponderosa" or "Bonanza". This was not an atmosphere where I would expect to spend this much money. The server was good and attentive, polite, but she was new (and under occasional supervision). No real complaints with her service. She did fine. There are just a LOT of other choices in the KC area, and since Hereford House is sort of a legacy brand in KC, I expected a better, classier experience.

    We went on my birthday, and had reservations. They stuck us — just the two of us — in this gloomy room that had not really been set up yet. (There even was someone’s partially consumed Starbucks drink in the middle of the big table set-up.). Two hostesses had to break the tables apart and set the room up to get us our table. And we were the only people in that room for the whole time we were there. It’s like they were hiding us away for some reason. Our waitress was excellent and provided top-notch service. She was the high-point of our meal. My KC Strip steak was very dry and done well, although I had ordered it medium-well. I was not impressed with the Strip steak and guess I should have stuck with my usual Sirloin. All-in-all, we walked away wishing we had just grilled steaks at home for my birthday.

    We were seated at an awkward table right as you walk into the dining room. Our table was bumped several times & the frequent “excuse me, pardon me” as servers tried to squeeze by. Should probably turn the table or eliminate that as a seating option.

    Hereford House is always food and enjoyable. We were disappointed this time as we were charged a fee for sharing our food. All we did was get an extra plate and sliced the burger in half ourselves. When we combine with the house salad it is just too much for one. This is the first time we were charged for sharing and we hope they will reconsider this policy. Other than that everything was great.

    We were a party of four who enjoyed our dining experience at Shawnee Hereford House. One of our companions was delighted to have her steak cooked perfectly—Pittsburgh sear—at the recommendation of Mitch, our very helpful/capable wait staff, throughout our meal. The others raved about the tender steaks and great taste. I had salmon and was delighted with it as well. We will definitely return soon. Treat yourself to a fabulous dining experience here.

    Hereford house steaks were not up to par for a steakhouse steak tonight. 12 oz strip steaks ordered by 4 of us were grisly. Steak had very little grill flavor to it. We were celebrating birthdays tonight and the meal was disappointing.
