Our server was not attentive and there were long wait times between us being checked on. Another server brought us bread and refreshed our drinks. Longhorn serves a better New York Strip. What kind of restaurant does not have Amaretto for an after dinner drink?
Went for 20th wedding anniversary. It was fantastic.
Steak was over cooked and I had a hair in my food. Gross. Lost my appetite.
Food was good. Server had no personality!
Excellent food, excellent location, excellent waitress. Recommended by friends and will now be recommended by us.
Excellent meal. I ate at Hennen’s three nights in a row while staying in downtown Chattanooga. The Red Snapper, South by Southwest Shrimp and Ribeye were all phenomenal.
It was amazing! Food was great...we had the best server...he recommended great food choice. First time and wont be the last.
We were referred to this venue as the place to go. Terrible disappointed.
Our meals were excellent! My wife had the salmon and I had the split bone ribeye which was described as more marbled than the regular ribeye. It was the most enjoyable steak I’ve had in years! Pricey but worth it. The extensive wine list was fairly priced in my opinion. Our wines by the glass were fine and generous.
Excellent food, great service.
All was delicious and our server was outstanding!
We had a wonderful dinner with an atmosphere that allowed great conversation.
Our waiter was wonderful. He had just the right amount of friendliness and described the dishes very accurately. Our cocktail, a Manhattan was one of the best I've ever had. When we first were seated at our table, I was concerned the large party of students dressed in prom gowns and tuxes would be too noisy. But it turned out to be fine and fun to see all the dresses. The food was very good. I am an accomplished cook myself so I tend to be critical. The steak and scallops was excellent except for the Bordelaise. That seemed thickened with corn starch instead of reduced and I didn't care for it. Everyone had the salmon with spinach risotto. That was beautiful and delicious. Overall, a very enjoyable time and dinner at Hennen's.
Server was great! Food overall was ehhh. Prime rib was extremely fatty and chewy, filet was dry, and the sides were just ok. No plans to return.
Beautiful outdoor dining area
Food was great: fried shrimp hot and spicy. Pear flatbread delectable.
I really want like Hennen's. The atmosphere is nice and the service was very good and I've heard good things from others. However, the food was bland and frankly, it didn't seem worth the cost. I had the special for the day which was tasteless at best. The cocktail I had tasted like cheap coolaide and vodka. I would try it again because it's always possible that it was a "bad day" and the regular menu is better. I would recommend trying it with some reservations...
Family in town
We first visited Hennen's in 2015 while cruising America's Great Loop. At that time, we spent a terrific few days in Chattanooga, made memorable by our dining experience at Hennen's. We talked about it to everyone we knew who was cruising the area and encouraged them to visit this gem. This time, we were passing through by car and wondered if the restaurant could live up to the overall memory we held so dear of our previous time in the city. We are delighted to report that it did.
We enjoyed another lovely meal with an interesting and engaged server/somalier who enhanced our entree choices with the perfect wine selection. The menu was inspired, well prepared and well presented; the filet was a perfect medium-rare with a high quality beefy flavor and the scallops were equally tender and delicious with a delicate and flavorful crunch to the tops and bottoms. For dessert, the creme brulee was wonderful; the bread pudding was off the charts, well worth the calorie splurge. The poached pear flatbread appetizer is worth mentioning, too, as are our pre-dinner cocktails. The Rasperry Lemonade was tasty (if a bit sweet); the Muddled Orange Manhattan was a refreshing change and is a new favorite.
We are already looking forward to the next time we visit or pass through Chattanooga. It will definitely include another visit to Hennen's.
Excellent food and service.
Service was excellent. Food was prepared and served well. Taste excellent. It was noisy with a large group on both sides of the party of three. :(
Tara great waitress! Delicious food
Great food, service and wine!
My boyfriend and I agreed the filet was the best we’d ever had. Waiter was excellent, cocktails were fantastic! I highly recommend the Moscow Mule...
excellent rib steak. presentation needs a little work.
My Wife and I were staying in Chattanooga for the night and wanted a good steak. Well, we found a great one at Hennen's. Outstanding food, service, and atmosphere make it a winner. We will be there again and tell all our friends.
I have nothing new to add to any earlier review. Great food, great service, great place
By far the best service I had ever received at a restaurant. I went with my date for prom, and she continuously held a conversation with us, complimented us, and even took our picture. Amazing!!!
Have never been disappointed whenever I have dined here. My salmon was delicious but the spinach risotto was the best I’ve had.
Very good food and sufficient choices to find something we liked. I cannot eat spicy and our server suggested the shrimp and grits gravy on the side just in case. It was a great suggestion as I was able to eat the dish but could not eat the gravy. Our only disappointment was the bread pudding...it was dried out and tough. Not as good as the desserts we had there on earlier visits. Will not order that again.
List above needs a choice such as: Tasty well prepared food. I would check that choice.
Been to Hennen’s many times. Scallops always cooked properly. Last night the scallops were over cooked and very chewy and tough. Disappointing!
Always enjoy a good meal
We had never heard of Hennen's before as we stay in the UK. The description of a steakhouse does not do it justice. There was a varied menu and our server, Gabriel, was outstanding. There are many steakhouses in the US, such as Texas Roadhouse and the Outback, but Hennen's is a class act. Well done! The only improvement I could suggest is to add to the website that they sell wines by the bottle. So many others in the US do not.
The Lobster bisque was amazing! Actually the best I have ever eaten. The service was excellent. Chef specials and menu were easy to understand. Perfect place for a nice date night. This place exceeded my expectations in every area. The steak was aged beautifully. It was tender and juicy. We will make this a permanent stop every time we are in the Chattanooga area.
Whole restaurant was full of smoke and smells like a cheap grill station. No way ! Outside right next to the street you can see the smoke come of the kitchen is blowing without filtration into the air. Unbelievable.
Always great food and great service. Their cocktails are always generous pours as well.
Great Expectations!!! Server Was Knowledgeable And Courteous... The Entire Restaurant Was Impeccable!!! Five Star Rating!!!
We were there for Anniversary and I am a vet of the Restaurant business. It was a very good experience. We had good service and went because we were looking for Steak. They allowed me to bring in an older vintage wine from the year me and my wife were married. Very reasonable corkage. The dinner was very good! We will go back.
The lady complained about the bernaise sauce smelling spoiled and the waiter said he couldn't do anything about it--that was the recipe. No offer of making some more or an alternate. Service exceedingly slow for such a fine restaurant.
The food was wonderful. Love a good prime rib
