Why did you change the Happy Hour menu ?

Hereford House why did you change your Happy Hour menu? I have enjoyed the hamburger (best in the Northland) and chicken sandwich along with the chicken fried chicken and regular steak. All have been taken off the menu and I wish you would consider bringing them back. I have tried your hamburger... read more

Unfortunately, I didn't follow this advice myself and this is the second time in a year that I've had a very bad meal. If you are looking for a great steak with flavor to match the price you are paying, don't go here. We had a group of about 10 and the four of us that had the steak thought... More

Went here for dinner in conjunction with a business meeting. The atmosphere and service was nice. The steak though was not. For $32 I expect a filet to be very good. This one was so tough I had to literally saw on it with my steak knife to cut it. I wasn't the only one at our table that had... More

In South Kansas City looking for a place to have a night time meal. Wanted a good mouth watering steak. Ended up in a Mall complex and decided to eat at the Hereford House at 119 & Nal. Went in and waited for a friend and struck up a great conversation with Peter the bartender. When my friend arrived we... More

This was my first visit to the Hereford House. I wasn't impressed. The service was good, we sat out on the patio but the table was big enough for one plate. The steak potato skins were great but the rest of the food was not very good. We did go on Happy Hour, the steak fry nachos was not good... More

My family and I have been to Hereford House twice at the Zona Rosa location and of course years ago downtown K.C. We loved the one downtown and have very good memories of Prom dates there etc. The food is excellent! Our steaks were perfect. We had the appetizers too. We don't frequent the restaurant much since it is so... More

We visited the Hereford House in the Zona Rosa center in Kansas City. This is a large entertainment complex outside downtown Kansas City. It is very similar to the Atlantic Station in Atlanta. We called ahead and made a reservation. We ate early and reservations were not necessary. However, by the time we left (around 7:30) the wait was pretty... More

1st time here, expected a great steak. Way overpriced for sub par food. The Steak Soup tastes exactly like Dinty Moore Beef Stew. KC Strip steak ordered medium had to be sent back twice as it was a deep cold red center, then it was absolutely tasteless. They did allow me to make another selection, of which the Prime Rib...

We went there for New Year's Eve. The service was very good. The atmosphere nice, but the food was boring. Considering the prices, it was criminal. I had the pork chops. The cut of meat was tough and the entire meal had very little taste. I ended up taking it home so I could doctor it up myself. I've made... More

Very nice atmosphere and good service. Steak was ok. The grill aroma as you walked up got you hungry for steak but the same taste did not transfer to the steak. Sides were great!
