Great Carrot Cake

Visited Hertford House restaurant a month or so ago. Planned early dinner around 6pm and was seated pretty quickly. Greated by a friendly server and was pretty responsive. Would say steak was average for Kansas City, but KC is known for great steaks and Bar-b-que. Best part of dinner was the carrot... read more

Had lunch there and clearly the nicest restaurant in town. Would say it was a beef eater's delight but I found enough other to keep me happy. Staff couldn't be more kind, and the food was everything that you'd expect.

This place has it all....I have been here with large groups....for a quick lunch with a friend....and for dining out with my husband. This is one of the best places in Independence to eat at. I have never ordered anything that was not good. I have had a large variety of items to eat, Steak, Ribs, Chicken and all were... More

Great menu, decent service. The steaks are way overpriced and I'd question the talents of the chef staff on the particular night we were there. I had the Chicken & Andouille Soup and the Steak Salad. The soup was tasty but there was very little chicken or sausage in it and the steak tasted like fish, so I would assume... More

So, I ate here on a business trip because it was the closest restaurant to the hotel I was staying at...Every business traveler knows that good food is not a promise when you are in a new location and restricted in choices. I read the reviews for Hereford House, and they seemed mixed, but I took a chance. I decided... More

An overpriced fatty steak, weak salad and uninspired vegetables made this a dinner to regret. The steak knife had trouble with meat and my teeth didn't fare much better, the salad was large pieces of romaine, un cut, that's were plated and served. A real expensive disappointment!

I have been to all of the Hereford House locations, and in the days of Old I had many, many fantastic meals at the original downtown location when I lived in the area. Today business brought me back and I landed smack in the hotel next to Hereford House in Independence. The convenience was alluring as I am in the... More

The hostess should say thank you or something when you leave but perhaps they are not thankful that we chose them instead of any of the 15 other restaurants within a mile. Service and food was above average.

There was a day that when you said you were going to the Hereford House, you were going to eat a very special meal.. not so any more.. the prices are what you would expect to pay for a special meal but that's not what they serve these days... The steaks my wife and I were served were very tender,... More
