We stopped here recently for happy hour (it runs all day & most of the evening). The dinner menu can get expensive but happy hour is a really good value. Food is delicious, service is great & the draft beer is amazingly cold!!

Had a great dinner. Steak was very good and salad was above average. You get a smaller portion of their salads from the menu. Very nice atmosphere and wait staff was very attentive. One oddity was the parking. As I was visiting the area and not familiar with the shopping/dining area, I circled the restaurant, as most others seemed to... More

We attended with a group of approximately 13 people. Amazingly, most of the group had to send back their steaks since they were underdone. I didn't send mine back but it was definitely rare vs. medium rare. It seemed strange for a place which is associated with good KC beef and expert preparation. I would not be anxious to go... More

The bacon wrapped tenderloin medallion for lunch with choice of salad or soup with a side is the perfect portion for a hearty lunch. The atmosphere was quiet, an almost impossible choice in KC these days with impeccable service.

6 Aussies were directed to Hereford House by the driver from The Best Western hotel. The Royals were playing on the TV ( which we usually don't like) but it created a great atmosphere. The bar made a mean gin and tonic and Vincent our server was capable and friendly even though it was only his 3rd day. Thanks to... More

Attended Hereford House as part of a group of business colleagues. They had us set up in a private room in the back with a dedicated server. Excellent all around experience. I had them add the blue cheese and cracked black pepper to my rare KC Strip and was not disappointed. The green beans and bacon side dish was mediocre... More

The restaurant itself is located in a beautiful outdoor shopping mall and is very clean and looks like an upscale steakhouse. The prices reflect an upscale steakhouse too, but I wasn't impressed with the food itself. My partner and I choose the dinner for two for $65. We started with the buffalo wings which were not at all hot, in... More

Years ago this was one of the best of the best for steak, especially a juicy KC Strip in the nations midwest. Every week I travel around this country and eat great steaks and other food, and I don't give many negative reviews, but this restaurant has gone so far downhill from days past it needs to be known. It's... More
