Hereford House has a classy, old world feel with the traditional dark paneled wood and crisp white table clothes. It serves some of the finest prime rib, steaks, and even grilled salmon around. You don't have to go to the Plaza for good food. It is pricy at dinner, but very reasonable for lunch with daily specials. And, go there... More

I have eaten at Hereford House a couple of times. One time at the downtown location which has now burnt down and at the one off of Little Blue Parkway. This is an upscale Steakhouse that offers Quality Meat. The service is great. The food is great. The staff knows their stuff, so you can expect a really nice dining... More

Hereford House was recommended to us so we went for a birthday dinner to check it out for ourselves. We started with a Spinach and artichoke dip and it was good. We are both steak lovers and maybe our expectations were set too high, but our steaks were mediocre. I had steak fries for side and they were bland. We... More

I am not a beef eater and found myself at Hereford House with coworkers. The oysters were fresh but the bread crumbs kind of buried them. But the sides were the best. I had a baked potato, portabella mushrooms, and spinach. All were cooked perfectly.

This is one of KC's finest! A great place to get a succulent steak, cooked to perfection with a variety of toppings available. Awesome desserts (I usually have to take mine to go). Definitely worth a visit.

Hereford House is a great place for steak and prime rib. The house salad dressing is a favorite and the happy hour menu is very reasonably priced.

Was in the area for business so two of us decided why not do a steak joint since we were in the "Kansas City" area. We were at this restaurant on the Monday night after Thanksgiving so it was slow, really slow. The place is hooked onto a Hilton Garden Hotel via the Independence Convention space in between so a...

If you're staying at the Hilton Garden Inn next door, you can walk here inside the building (helpful on a cool, rainy evening) and there's a 10% discount coupon that the hotel desk should give you, either when you check in or if you ask for it. The portions are significant, though not overwhelming. Carson, my server, was attentive, knowledgeable,... More
