Unexpectedly good!

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... read 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

Our group decided to dine at the Hereford House last Friday night, the first day of Lent. I ordered a pasta dish which was described at a creamy sauce with peppers and onions with grilled shrimp. The dish was very bland and had no taste that stood out...in addition to the 5 small shrimp that topped the dish. The Caesar... More

After dining here regularly for years, we seldom go anymore. The menu has changed and not for the better. The dishes we regularly ordered are gone from the regular menu. One of them is available only on the early dinner menu so unless we can fit that in, we just don't go.

The service here is wonderful. I've eaten here multiple times and haven't had a bad cut of meat yet. They cook the steaks to your taste (rare for me) and the flavor is wonderful. Good wine options in a range of prices.

Good food and good service. Casual atmosphere. Somewhat of a western steak house. Good selection of food as well. A bit on the price side. Expect to pay 60+ for two people. I think they are not worth the price, but they are good.

We stayed at the hotel next door and didn't want to go far so we ate at the Hereford House. We'd eaten there a while back and weren't very happy with our meal then, but decided to give it another chance. The cocktails were fine and our appetizer (the "Sea Hogs" (bacon-wrapped grilled shrimp) were excellent and we thought we... More
