Solid consistent steak house. I have a good experience everytime. For larger groups (6+) request a private room, very nice to conversation.

We had dinner as a family at Hereford House as it was conveniently located next to our hotel. We had a private type room for our party of six and had Charles as our server. He was excellent, finding out what we liked and making recommendations when asked based on what we had told him. The four course dinner for... More

Wow, what a meal and what service. 7 of of us had dinner tonight and it was spectacular. Charles was our waiter and was super attentive. This is a must stop in Independence.

Four of us went for an early Friday night family dinner. It was really perfect. The waiter did an exellent job - attentive, well-paced in terms of bringing food or drinks and checking in to see what was needed. Two in our party were children, and the waiter was great with them too. The children's menu had lots of great... More

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.
