Our friends took my husband and I out to eat for our birthdays. We chose to eat at the Hereford house. I couldn't help but notice the walls needed a thorough cleaning woodwork needed dusting . But I could handle that, what I couldn't was when a cockroach landed by my friends plate climbed on her fork! Luckily I was... More

The hype got us to try it, but it was nothing special. My dinner( steak, baked potato, mushrooms, salad, glass of wine)was DEFINITELY not a $45 meal. The server forgot to bring the extra dressing I requested, 2 in our party had the mixed grill & said the chicken was dry and the steaks were very chewy; not tender. Best... More

We were there and really spared no effort to have a real KY steak experience. This was not the place. This place was not any better than Longhorn. Really find another place for that special meal in KC... really underwhelmed....

Ordered the Ribeye, blackened. Very tasty. This location always gets it right. Have had several meals here with clients as well as family, always leave satisfied with value. Check groupon for deals.

Very attentive waiter, with good suggestions. Steaks cooked just right.Steak soup was a real treat for this soup lover. The special house potato dish was also excellent. Attached to the Hilton Garden Inn.

The restaurant's atmosphere upon entering is welcoming, intimate and classy. I was seated and was waiting for some time before someone stopped and asked if I had been served......I said no and she produced someone immediately who was extremely professional and attentive the rest of my stay. The food is absolutely marvelous, one of the best meals I ever had,... More

While in the KC area we wanted to experience a "Kansas City steak" and the Hereford House's Independence location was close to our hotel. Promoted as one of America's "legendary steak houses" we looked forward to the opportunity. While the service was outstanding, the decor pleasant, and the menu offerings mouth watering, we were disappointed with our KC Strip Steak.... More

Even though I indicated in a review a couple of months ago that we would not be eating at the Hereford House location in Independence again, I decided to give them another try. I;m glad we returned, as the results today were totally opposite. We were seated immediately, and our server (Tanner) did an excellent job. The food and service... More

Our family loves the food, service and the small private rooms which create a great family atmosphere. One can dine out privately. Then, there is the food! We have enjoyed steaks, seafood, salads (my husband really likes the Caesar salad) and the desserts are wonderful also. Simply a great experience.

We had dinner at the Hereford House on the last night of a 2 week MO vacation. The steaks were excellent and the beverages well prepared. Our sever, Weston, did an excellent job of making our last night in MO a memorable one.
