Visited Hereford House in November with my daughter and loved the service and food! It is a great place for steak, but I love the salad and soup. Be sure to get the steak soup!!!

My family and I went to Hereford House in Independence for Christmas Eve dinner, and overall, I'd say it was an average place with average food. Nothing special, but nothing totally bad. For Christmas Eve, it wasn't as packed as you would think. We arrived and were seated promptly, so I guess that means they didn't have too many reservations... More

We don't mind spending a lot on a great meal, so while passing through Kansas City on a cross country road trip we figured we would treat ourselves to a legendary "Kansas City Steak". The Hereford House had some literature in our hotel, and looked good on line with a few locations in town. We figured it looked like a... More

Thank you for taking the time to write. Your service issues have been forwarded to all managers. It is a great lesson for service providers everywhere...if the first contact and response to a customer isn't quick and positive, the total experience suffers. We are sorry this was the case with you. Should you be back in the KC area, please... More

Like the atmosphere and professional wait staff, but really like the food. We eat here once a week minimum for lunches and do a family thing with 13-15 of us in a private room at no extra cost about twice a year. You won't be disappointed with this venue.

We ate here for a birthday dinner and were not disappointed! Our server was very attentive, beyond expectations. Our steaks were cooked properly - even my well done filet was nicely done. I paired my steak with the twice-baked potato, which was very good. I also sneaked a bite of my son's mashed potatoes, which were nice and creamy. My... More

We ate here while visiting family that live in KC. This restaurant was highly recommended by them, so we figured we'd try it out. We went on a Saturday night and the place was packed, but we were able to make reservations, so we didn't have to wait. They have a dinner for two special for $65, which includes an... More

We ate dinner at Hereford House on Saturday evening, October 12, 2013. We have eaten at Hereford House's various locations many times over the years. This was one of the very best visits, the Independence location has a very good chef and staff right now. My husband's steak was one of the best he's ever had, my Mom's pork chop... More
