    We went on my birthday, and had reservations. They stuck us — just the two of us — in this gloomy room that had not really been set up yet. (There even was someone’s partially consumed Starbucks drink in the middle of the big table set-up.). Two hostesses had to break the tables apart and set the room up to get us our table. And we were the only people in that room for the whole time we were there. It’s like they were hiding us away for some reason. Our waitress was excellent and provided top-notch service. She was the high-point of our meal. My KC Strip steak was very dry and done well, although I had ordered it medium-well. I was not impressed with the Strip steak and guess I should have stuck with my usual Sirloin. All-in-all, we walked away wishing we had just grilled steaks at home for my birthday.

    We were seated at an awkward table right as you walk into the dining room. Our table was bumped several times & the frequent “excuse me, pardon me” as servers tried to squeeze by. Should probably turn the table or eliminate that as a seating option.

    Hereford House is always food and enjoyable. We were disappointed this time as we were charged a fee for sharing our food. All we did was get an extra plate and sliced the burger in half ourselves. When we combine with the house salad it is just too much for one. This is the first time we were charged for sharing and we hope they will reconsider this policy. Other than that everything was great.

    We were a party of four who enjoyed our dining experience at Shawnee Hereford House. One of our companions was delighted to have her steak cooked perfectly—Pittsburgh sear—at the recommendation of Mitch, our very helpful/capable wait staff, throughout our meal. The others raved about the tender steaks and great taste. I had salmon and was delighted with it as well. We will definitely return soon. Treat yourself to a fabulous dining experience here.

    Hereford house steaks were not up to par for a steakhouse steak tonight. 12 oz strip steaks ordered by 4 of us were grisly. Steak had very little grill flavor to it. We were celebrating birthdays tonight and the meal was disappointing.

    Tried some new menu items, the pulled pork sandwich and the Salmon BLT. They tasted amazing! Kudos to the chef creators. Sadly, both dishes contained bones, so the care in preparation was absent in both dishes. Had it been just a fish bone, I would not have been particularly concerned, but finding them in both builds concern in kitchen quality control. I will return, having been a loyal customer for decades, but was disappointed particularly with the meager effort at making it right by management.

    We will not be returning any time soon. We asked for a booth but were told they already had reservations for them. 3 sat empty the entire time we were there. The crab cakes had very little flavor and seemed to be more filler than anything. The steak was fine but not outstanding for the price they are charging.

    I ordered the sirloin, green greens, and a loaded baked potato. My friend ordered by saying that he’s have the same, except with broccoli. My plate came out wonderful. His literally had a baked potato that was not loaded or even opened and served with butter. The plate had a dry potato like it just came from the oven. I have never seen a potato served without butter on the side. 😳 The server did not come back until the end so he ended up not even eating the dry potato. I was emailed a Birthday coupon for a free entree. When I clicked to redeem, the button didn’t work. It was good for 30 days and still valid. Server had me try it multiple times, then the manager came out to help. In the end the button never worked and it was definitely embarrassing for me. The manager took off my entree but by that point I was already embarrassed since the people next to us were looking. I hope that this issue is fixed before it happens to someone else.

    Hereford House - ShawneeResponded on 5 July 2022Hi Jennifer, Thank you for brining your concerns to our attention. We are extremely disappointed to hear about your recent visit. We have not had any reports regarding the birthday coupon button not working but will look into this further.

    Have been to this Hereford House many times and usually have a great time, but on this occasion we were disappointed. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. The service by Abbey was great, but the food was rather disappointing. A bad baked potato was replaced quickly, the asparagus was old and wilted, the steak was slightly undercooked and poorly seasoned. The trout was 'meeeh'. The flies on the patio were relentless! Haven't experienced that at another outdoor venue in a long time.

    We went for Father's Day so I can say it was very busy. A little more noisy than usual I imagine. The food was outstanding. The beef was topnotch. Sides were plentiful horseradish was perfect traditional We had the KC strip and prime rib. The service was good in as much as they always made everything right. There was a lot of mistakes though. They got my wife's two sides wrong. Replaced them though. Clearly our order sat for too long and was less than piping hot. The "loaded" baked potato was not really loaded, especially for an expensive steak house. All in there was less than two tablespoons of cheese, bacon, and sour cream. The pricing was strange too. They did not have a surf and turf option. You are forced to buy the 6 oz lobster tail a la carte which means the price of a third meal without the meal. Her main course ran better than 70 bucks. They advertised free dessert for Father's Day and we ordered that as well as the soup to take home. Turns out the dessert we wanted was not on the list of free dessert so that was another 9 bucks. She did offer to give me another free dessert from the list to take home and when we broke into it later I had two carrot cakes. Oh, and they didn't honor the daily special so we paid full price for the prime rib. When you step back it looks like the negatives outweighed the positives. The food was so good I might be willing to take that one hour drive again.

    We went on Father's Day expecting a large crowd, but was surprised at the relatively small amount of people at 2:00. This was great for fast service. Our waitress was very friendly, but wore a little too much perfume. The food was good, and we were very pleased with the free dessert for dad and the BOGO coupon we got as we left. We will definitely be returning!
