This restaurant is in an old school house, and not what you think. Outstanding food and service. We have been there twice and the number will increase. I guess you could say it is American Cuisine with a Kansas City bent. I had chicken livers with local potato Hash, and Chard & Bacon Caper Butter Sauce. Oh, Man! It was... More

Every restaurant is entitled to a "bad" night, unfortunately the Webster's House's "bad" night happened to fall on our anniversary...as well as my first experience dining there. What went wrong...here it is in a nutshell: 1) We waited at least 15 minutes for a server. When no one appeared, I asked a busboy, who found someone to wait us on.... More

Met with some of the CCVI Staff (and, of course, including Traci Todd-Murphy). Seared Sea Scallops and worth the trip alone. The bread pudding is fantastic.

A beautiful setting for a romantic and delicious meal. My husband and I ate here before seeing Handel's Messiah at the Kauffman Center, just a short walk away. The Red Snapper was very delicious and beautifully served. My husband had the duck breast and it was delicious too. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the beautiful setting.

It was such a great place and they were so attentive to ensure we got through dinner quick enough to make it to a show. Scallops were amazing. Drinks were great. Place was packed and they still provided great service. Environment was cozy and classy and warm. Will go back for another splurge!

This restaurant is located in an historic school (about 100 years old) and also contains several rooms of unique gifts, clothing, home accessories, etc. The chef uses seasonal ingredients and the soups, entrees and deserts are delicious. There are several elegant dining rooms - small and large.

The food at Webster House is amazing! We really enjoyed our late lunch. Service was excellent. The room where we were seated was pretty noisy, as they were quite busy, but other than that, it was great.

We celebrated my mother-in-laws 80th birthday. We had a group of 25. They made organizing very easy. We had our own private room with plenty of space and privacy. The menu options were expansive. The service provided was exceptional. The dinner was excellent and moved at a very comfortable pace. A very special evening made Perfect.

Webster House is located in an old school house that has been renovated for a variety of shops on the first floor and restaurant, bar and meeting rooms on the second floor. We had lunch there with relatives and wanted a place that was quiet so that we could catch up. There was another large party in one of the... More
