Mr – I really expected more, after the build up by hotel staff. I live in a small town outside of Chicago, and we have several restaurants locally that I feel are better than the Herford House. I was disapointed, especially after being told of Kansas City's rep for excelent steak houses, and if the critic who listed the Hereford as number one really thinks so, than I wonder about what qualifies him / her as a food critic???

sadly overrated – I have eaten at the Hereford House several times with family and friends because of its reputation. Each time I was terribly disappointed with the quality of my steak. The service was a bit slow, but they were busy. None of the steaks ordered by my party were worth the drive, let alone the price.

owner – We found the food outstanding. Perhaps one of the best prime rib and filets available in the area. Excellent value.

Great Job! – We love the Hereford House. It is affordable for the whole family. They have kids menus, Sunset dinners for when you just want a lite dinner and not to mention Prime Rib lovers Sunday. I do not know what the guy was belly aching about the Capital Grill being best...You have to save for a year to eat there!! Hereford House is Best!! Keep up the great work!

Captial City Grille – Hereford House should not be #1. They don't deserve or honor this status. It's a regular joint if you ask me, nothing special at all about Hereford House. I do remember one time a co-worker and I went to the downtown location for lunch. We walked in and were told they can not serve parties of 4 or less because is was National Secretaries Day. So in turn they rejected our business because it was not in their favor. As a KC Native, I will never go to another Hereford House because of this incident.

I personally would choose any other steak house then Hereford's. Sure it may be convenient for the downtown workers but since I work almost a block from it, I've found many great restraints like Jack Stack or even Tanners Bar & Grill.

don't bother – This restaurant has really changed, the food is rarely hot, the steaks are hit and miss, and the service is just OK, it feels like no one cares if you are there or not, and if anything, it's a problem you are there at all.

Since they have expanded the quality and care that they had been know for has really disappeared.

If you're wanting a steak and great service where they act like they want you there, try somewhere else.

don't bother – These restaurants have really gone down hill since they hurried to open so many and the owner has left. The management, customer service and quality is terrible, each restaurant is entirely different in attitude. Years ago you could count on a staff that was happy to see you and make sure your meal was the best it could be, now a yawn greets you at the door as you are shooed away and told to wait. They used to serve a great special early dinner menu but that isn't available, unless you ask for it. My husband and I are sad such a great local place for steaks as become mediocre on a good day, save you money and temper go to the long horn or outback

Loan Officer – Good beef with great side dishes. It's downtown so everyone can enjoy it, although road construction makes parking a joke. And who made this list?! I don't think they know Kansas City very well. Where in the list is The Majestic Steakhouse?

Jack Stack Is Superior – I find it suprising, if not dismaying, that Hereford House is ranked the highest for Steakhouses in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area.

Fiorella's (Commonly known as Jack Stack) is far better than anything at the Hereford House.

The Hereford House's presentation of their food is horrible, (the sight of their salads are pathetic -- wilted lettuce, terrible tomatoes, etc.).

As a native Kansas Citian, I would choose Jack Stack in a heartbeat.

They'll help you with a special occasion – My wife and I went to Hereford to celebrate our new found knowledge that we would be parents. When we told the waiter, he tracked down a bottle of non-alcoholic sparkling grape juice to help us celebrate.

It's hard for us to choose any other steakhouse with that kind of service.
