Great little cowboy themed eatery. Excellant menu choices and reasonable prices... This place is worth a detour off of the highway, but is not open on Mondays.

My husband & I decided to try the Hoof & Horn as it is close to home, but had mixed feelings about the place. The atmosphere is old timey & comfortable and the service was fast and friendly. Food was disappointing, steaks cooked well but not flavorful or tender and twice baked potato was something that seemed to be made... More

This place has been around since 1898, with current owner since the JFK administration. Just a great old traditional American steakhouse, western motif, etc. down in the St. Joe stockyards. Had gone here many times growing up in the area, but hadn't been back for probably 35 years. Were in town for Chiefs training camp and had to try it... More

We had dinner last evening and were very pleased with the food and the service. I had the 8 oz top sirloin. It was tender, cooked just right and flavorful. The corn on the cob was at the ideal maturity. Service was excellent--just enough checking to refill drink glasses and see that the food was satisfactory. Waitresses were friendly and... More

I had high hopes after having one of the best spinach salads, ever. Dressing was great. Ordered prime rib and sides. Prime rib was cooked perfectly but had no flavor. Hoped AuJus would add the flavor, but it was flavorless also. Rolls typical purchased taste. Coconut Cream Pie was above average.

Popped in for a quick lunch when in St Joe for a day. I had a Mixed salad and a Cheeseburger. Good sized portion, tasty home made chips (crisps to us Brits) but the meat was just ok. Still, only around $7 and I'd happily go back just don't have great expectations

We went to Hoof & Horn on recommendation so were excited to go down to the stockyards and enjoy the surrounding area and a great restaurant. When we arrived, there were several tables open, but we (my husband and I) were made to wait until a booth was available, about 10 mins. with no one waiting in front of us.... More

The is one of my favorite places when I am in the area. Good food at reasonable price in an historic location next to the stockyards. With a bit of imagination, you can see cowboys having a drink at the bar. My first time here was 40+ years ago and only in the last 6 years have I been able... More

I'm in town on a business trip, and the Hoof and Horn was recommended to me by a coworker who's lived here his whole life. So I went there and tried the prime rib with a spinach salad, both of which were excellent. The service was prompt and friendly. I plan on going again before my trip is over.
