Steak was done perfect. With my birthday certificate we’ll worth the money.

This is a neighborhood place we visit fairly frequently. Went for restaurant week, food was good but service was really really slow, which is unusual for this location. Hopefully, it was just an "off" day for the waiter

Our dinner date at Hereford House was great. The food was amazing. It was our first time trying the boneless wings. They were not very spicy but had a great flavor. The cocktails were good. I had pasta with shrimp - so good & my husband got his usual prime rib. All delicious. The carrot cake is the best! Our server was very nice but the service at the beginning was a little slow. We had to ask twice for water & got them after our cocktails. So thumbs up to the bar for being speedy!

Received a call from the manager a few hours before our reservation time. He graciously reserved their private dining room for our family which proved to be perfect for our dinner. Thank you! And the waitress, Becca was pleasant, professional and attentive to our every need.

Try the $75.00 4 course dinner. They offer an appetizer to share, salad or soup, entrée and dessert to share. The entrée offerings are generous, with something for everyone. The carrot cake is delicious! Tired of those restaurants with high ceilings and noise level? Hereford House offers a quiet atmosphere, where dinner conversation can exist. The only reason I didn't give it a higher mark for quietness is because we had a table of 10 guys next to us and they were whooping it up, which is expected during the Holiday Season.

We really enjoyed our family reunion dinner at Hereford House Shawnee. Food was great! Several of us ordered the 4-course dinner which was bountiful and excellent. Service was very good. Only complaint was we were seated in a back room next to large glass windows/doors which made dining at that end of the table quite chilly! We will return for great steaks and prime rib!

Food was way over priced and service was mediocre. The steak was over done and for a steak house it should be prefect. The gravy for the chicken fried steak was horrible. It was a sweet tasting paste it wasn’t even a gravy. True white gravy, or even gravy made from the drippings, should be robust and peppery not sweet. The green beans and stuffed mushrooms were good. The worst thing about the visit was the server. I had and outside corner of the booth. Yes there was a corner on a round booth very bad design and uncomfortable to set. Throughout the entire meal he kept reaching over my drink and plate. He would do so when I was actually eating and would get a couple of inches from my face. He touched my food and straw with his sleeve. He was not very personable and overall wasn’t a good server. He also smelled like a cigarette with clothes it was disgusting to smell that when I was trying to eat. I still have him a tip he may have been having a bad day. Normally I wouldn’t have left anything for him servers start at zero with me and have to earn their tip. I was just really disappointed that we went to a steak house and paid almost $140 for the quality of food and service we received. We could have gotten that quality at Applebee’s, Chili’s, or some chain restaurant. Will not go back and wouldn’t recommend anyone I know to go there just not worth the time or money.

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.

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.
