In a town known for it's steaks, Hereford House is a grand experience, with more than just steaks. Just cannot go wrong here. Steak soup is divine as an example.

Visited to celebrate my husband's birthday. We are signed up for the birthday emails and went for lunch. Had a delicious special. Everyone was so accommodating. We ate outside on the patio which was wonderful. Always a favorite for us.

OK, so I didn't actually eat there. Our hostess suggested we order several desserts for pick up (let's face it, who isn't stuffed after eating at a steak house?). We picked the tower of chocolate, peach pie, carrot cake. My usual favorite is carrot cake,...More
