I was there with my book club. There were ten of us in one of their smaller rooms. It was nice. The service excellent. Well-rounded wine list and other beverages. I enjoyed the steak salad. The steak was cooked to my liking, medium rare. And desert was the carrot cake. So much food, I had enough for lunch the next... More

My husband and I had the NY strips, and were not disappointed. The flavoring is amazing, and the steaks just melt in your mouth.

We took my elderly in-laws here for a nice outing. This location is attached to a hotel, but is large and has a fine-dining atmosphere (and prices.) We all enjoyed excellent food, including shrimp, soups, salads, and of course, steak. Among the best steaks I've ever had. Only down-side was that the staff wasn't as aware of the needs of... More

Our hosts at the Hawthorne B&B recommended we try Hereford House and we are glad we took their advice. The food was great, as was the service. Back East I had stopped ordering Prime Rib because I was consistently disappointed. I gave this dish a try and was overjoyed! The meat was very flavorful and fork tender. We were so... More

My husband and I have been true blue patrons of the Hereford House for many years. It was our favorite place to take guests, celebrate birthdays and graduations. We would go eat in the bar and knew all the waiters and waitress by name. A few years ago we moved a little further away and our trips there became more... More

We enjoyed this restaurant. The waitress was very attentive and friendly and the food was excellent. Right next door to our hotel (Hilton), so convenient. Nice warm ambiance and I recommend this place.
