I ate here with a group of 8. Everyone said their food was good, but the waitress kept getting the food orders wrong. I had chicken fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy and steak soup. I was reaaly pleased. I tasted their Vespacho soup, and it was very good also. The bread pudding... read more

The food was ok. Isn't that saying something? I have had better steaks from a chain restaurant for $10 less than what I paid there. I tried it twice & the price for what I got wasn't worth it.

Based on friends recommendations and on reviews here, I went for dinner. Sat at the bar, great service from bar staff. Appetizer and entree were both great. Kansa cith strip was cooked just right. They have a small but good beer selection.

If you love eating a good piece of beef then stop on in. The menu is full of wonder selections. Don't forget to have desert.

If you are in the mood for steak, look no further. I usually have the prime rib sandwich. It's a great cut of meat and I am always happy with the Caesar salad. We also have the hamburger at lunch. It is more affordable at lunch than we thought and the food is so much better than a standard type... More

I had filet mignon the extra 2 oz. big one , my husband had the regular size one. Prepared perfectly to our specifications. Steaks were well seasoned.The stuffed mushrooms were excellent, very crabby. Great service. You get what you pay for.

Went to Hereford House for lunch and had their blue cheese stuffed burger with a fried egg (runny yolk) with a side of mushrooms. The mushrooms were meaty and flavorful. The burger was juicy and delicious.

The service was top notch. Overall the food was a bit disappointing. The meat was not seasoned at all. It was cooked correctly. The pork chops were not what I expect at a steak house and I would not order again.

Because we age our steaks (over 3 weeks) and grill over charcoal, we don't add a lot of seasoning while grilling - allowing customers to add the amount of sodium they choose. We need to do a better job of explaining that, today's customer is used to the sodium infused cuts of meat that are used by places who don't... More

Hereford House is one of the best places to eat in the KC area. If you like steak and prime rib, then this is the place for you. They can cook a steak perfectly meduim rare every time and the prime rib is also cooked to perfection.

I take several people who are in their 80's and they have trouble hearing in today's noisy restaurants. We reserved one of their private rooms (I think there are 3) and it was perfect - we could easily carry on a conversation. The menu is so varied that a everyone can find just what they want. The waiter was excellent... More
