The food and service here is unfailingly superb. Especially good is the prime rib coupled with a nice wine selection. Truly one of the best steak experiences in the Midwest, Kansas City and the U.S.

We had a family birthday dinner in a private room. The steaks were good, but the side dishes were cold.

We have eaten previously at this location, and have never had any problems. However, this past Sunday we took a group of 6 adults and 3 children, and did not have a good experience. We had called earlier in the week to reserve a room in the back, so they knew we were coming. After being seated, it was 30... More

The only reason why I didn't give them 5 stars was because the ribeye was lacking in flavor. Everything else about my visit was fantastic. The staff was very warm, personal, and attentive. The mashed potatoes were great and the apple turnovers are amazing. I would go back just to have another.

When you go to this restaurant have a steak or a hamburger, they are the original, good angus beef. I had a salisbury steak with mashed potatoes last time that I went, and wasn't please with it. Too many seasonings thrown in. It has a sophisticated, steak house atmosphere with a small bar/lounge area.

This is my family's top pick when we go out to eat. The atmosphere is very relaxing, the food is always delicious, and there are menu choices to please everyone. We are usually given a nice private room when we have a group of 10 or more. They also have a great kids menu for the young ones.

My husband and I love "meat." Now where do you suppose you would go for a steak but the Hereford House? And they did not disappoint. It was delicious. Cooked perfectly - I'm sure they had other wonderful things, but we were not interested in those. We were they for "meat." The atmosphere is very comfortable - relaxed. Don't feel... More

Always disappointing when we go. We are close by, and wish it were better quality of food and service. It is easily accessed, and has nice atmosphere, but living here, most places have better steak.

My wife and I decided to venture out to Hereford House for a "date" prior to the onset of snow. We have eaten their multiple times over the past few year. The restaurant was fairly busy for the weather and the atmosphere is very much like an rustic steakhouse. We enjoyed the $65.00 meal for two: we had the shrimp... More
