The prime rib was WONDERFUL. Words can't describe how good the cheesy ranch potatoes were and our server was the best.

It was my granddaughters 18th birthday. The atmosphere was wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about our waiter. He was exceptional. The steaks were prepared to perfection. My son likes his steaks VERY RARE and he could not stop praising how the "chef got it right". It was a great evening. Also, my granddaughter would not share her complimentary cheesecake with anyone. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

The meal was tasty, we enjoyed it, but there are other steak houses that we enjoy more. We came there on this occasion to use a groupon. However, our server would not let us us it for our favorite thing on their menu, which we had been able to do on several other occasions, which is the "dinner for two". He told us that those meals were already discounted, so the groupon would not apply. When we told him we'd been allowed to use them for this in the past, he said that those servers should not have allowed us to do so. So, this was a big disappointment, & we will not be going back with a groupon, which means we will probably go elsewhere for a steak dinner.

The Hereford House consistantly delivers. I go there often and we always get good service, food, appitizers and drinks.
The prices are reasonable, the beer is cold and the staff is friendly with smiles on their faces.
You cant go wrong with the Hereford house!
I've eaten at 2 of their locations and they both exceed my expectations. I'm sure they'll exceed yours as well.

I had been here once before, and I seem to remember the menu as being much more extensive. I would not recommend this restaurant, because the limited menu is quite overpriced, especially the steaks.

The staff is very professional and the dining area is quiet enough to have a conversation with everyone at the table. The service was a little slow for lunch. Our food seemed to take longer than expected. The food was very good. Everyone at our table was happy with their order. I do wish the portion sizes would be a bit smaller so the price could be reduced. I little pricey for lunch. This was a business lunch. So, the price was fine for the occasion.

1st time going , would try again. In town from Ohio and was recommended to bring customers here. I felt the service was average and was not impressed with the meal. Everything was cold. I had the filet not much flavor but cooked perfect. Twice backed potato was hard and cold, asparagus looked like it was boiled and cold, I would not recommend.

This location has been up and down lately. We had slow service once but it seemed to improve afterward. But, this time service was so bad we walked out. Our server was new, three months on the job. We had to ask for bread and he told us that he was waiting to bring it with our appetizer. It took a long time to get our appetizer. But, we were waiting over an hour before we got a salad. The manager gave us a $50 coupon for our trouble. But, we don't plan to return to this location.

It's nice to visit Hereford House and not be made to feel bad for using a Groupon. We still had great service and enjoyed our meal. Service was very good - prompt and efficient. I had notated that it was a birthday but apparently that information didn't make it to the server, although that was fine. Lots of pre-prom dinner guests, but all were very respectful and not too loud which was a pleasant surprise. The prom kids were actually much more appropriately dressed for a night out than most guests...come on, Kansas City - you can at least put on a pair of pants to have a $35 steak for dinner!

We had a very good experience at Hereford House. The waitress was attentive, kept our drinks full. We had made reservations and they were ready to seat us when we got there. We ordered chicken fried chicken and the top sirloin. The sirloin was a little tough.

At my birthday dinner everything from the food to the wine to the service and atmosphere were first rate. Only drawback is that the menus were a little pricey. Otherwise it was an awesome evening at Hereford House.

Went there to celebrate our birthdays. Had a 5:45 reservation. Got our entrees an hour later. My prime rib was cold, and my baked potato was burnt and tough. Seemed like it had been in a warming tray all day. The other meal was salmon, which was okay. Mashed potatoes and asparagus. Three SLIM stalks of asparagus of which 3/4 of it stalk and inedible. Disappointing Birthday meals. Won't be returning.😞😞

My only problem with this particular reservation was that the restaurant did not have my reservation that I made over Open Table. They could not find my reservation when I arrived. Very disappointing. We ended up eating in the bar area. Not what I anticipated. It would be a nice gesture for the restaurant to provide me with a gift card for my next visit. I am a regular customer at this location.

Laid back steakhouse, with upscale steakhouse prices. Our steaks were severely undercooked on the inside but burnt on the outside and in general lacked flavor. Management was great, but food was so subpar I can't imagine we will be back.

very disappointed in the quality of the prime rib. Sent first cut back because it was very grisly and tough. Second cut wasn't much better. Then instead of $2.50 charge for a side salad, we were charged $6.00 for same salad because they said it was a special. Will not be returning even for 1/2 price prime rib.

We were seated in a bar area booth. Very noisy. Our order took so long and our server seemed to disappear. My date ordered a special, fish. It was very dry and they replaced it . My order, ribs and chicken was good. We have been to this location several times. This is the second time we have had a bad experience at this location lately. Something must have caused it to decline.
