Hennen's Ratings and Reviews

This was our second time here after having driven in from Murfreesboro to celebrate our friend's 25 year anniversary. We had requested in advance to have a circular booth but was told there were none available despite seeing some open and across from us was a man and his 6 year old son in a booth. Oh well.
Our waiter Bo was a nice guy but couldn't get it together. Had to be reminded to bring things to the table and then forgot one of our desserts to bring and finally, forgot to bring us back our to go box until we reminded him as we were leaving. I will go somewhere else when we return to Chattanooga as this visit was not up to par with our trip last year.

My husband and I really liked Hennen's and plan to return. Food was delicious!! Eugene, our server, was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Glad we met him. Not sure if our conversation could be heard by others, and that would be acoustics which are hard to control anyway. Definitely will come back!!!

It was not what we paid for. The filet's were extraordinarily delicious . And, the baked potatoes were from Heaven. Our 1 complaint was the 5 asparag spears ( a $ 7.00 side) were not enough for 1 person, let alone 2. The seating was weird. We were originally seated in a noisy place with lots of activity. The lighting should have been low and wasn't. They do nothing for birthdays. Great. Who knew? The waiter was so young, didn't even look 21, yet he asked for our I.D.. Mind you, this was my husband's 58th bday, and I am 55. it was not worth the 144.00 we spent for the mal. Yet, there was the filet & the baked potato!!!

Our Sunday evening visit to the restaurant was overall not a bad experience. The service was average to slightly above average. The restaurant itself was clean and comfortable. In general the food quality was excellent and tasted very good. However, we had several small issues that would make me opt for another restaurant in the future.
1. My glass and silverware were dirty, with small bits of food stuck to them. Replacement glass was clean, and I used the one clean fork I had.
2. Another party at our table found a long blonde hair in her dish approximately 2/3 through her meal. The waiter was appropriately concerned and removed the item from the bill.
3. Drinks are served without ice. When we asked for ice, we were told that the drinking water was triple charcoal filtered, and that the ice was not. I am not sure why the ice machine could not use filtered water, and I wondered what was so bad with the domestic water supply that was apparently still used for washing dishes and food contact surfaces.
4. Two of the 4 chairs at our table were weak and shifted so much that they had to be replaced with more sturdy chairs from another table.
Overall and notwithstanding the issues above, we were impressed with the preparation and quality of the food. The taste and temperature was very good, and if I try this restaurant again the food will be the reason. But operationally they have much to improve upon, with cleanliness being at the top of the list. In consideration of everything, I would likely give this restaurant another chance to see if our experience was a fluke or typical.

This was my 3rd visit to this local Steakhouse and each time has been fabulous. I have ordered fish once and the Ribeye 2 times. The fish was moist and translucent and the ribeye was cooked exactly as ordered both times and was tender and juicy. Their grits and asparagus are both great sides and the loaded potato is enough for 2. I have yet to have room for desert, next time my wife and I will split a meal so we can try desert. The only thing at Hennen's better than the food is the service. Brad was unbelievable, he took such great care of us. this is a place that you truly get Value for your money.

Hennon's is supposed to be one of the nicest restaurants in Chattanooga. We went there to celebrate our 40th anniversary. The food was very good, but the service was very poor. We were so rushed it was not a celebration at all. The restaurant was not busy and there was no one waiting on a table. Our waitress delivered our cocktails, but had not put a lime slice on my vodka tonic, so I asked for a slice. By the time she brought it back, one of the kitchen runners was setting the salads on the table. I wanted to enjoy my cocktail before eating. The waitress came by to pick up the salad plates but saaw we were not finished "working on it" as she said ( I hate that phrase) before we finished our salads another kitchen runner showed up with our entrees. Now, my salad plate is still sitting in front of me and my husband's is too, so the runner just stood there and looked at me. I thought she might just set it on top of my salad plate, so I picked up my salad plate and held it in mid air for her to serve my dinner, my husband set his in the window. The waitress came by "everything great?" as she was rushing by and we said we would like "more water" My husband wanted a glass of wine with his dinner, but that never had a chance to order it. Before we were through with our entree, she showed up, and asked if we wanted dessert. My husband said we weren't through eating yet, we didn't know, so she said she had the dessert menu with her so she would just "leave it and let us take a look at it". We were trying to make the evening last a little longer, so we ordered dessert. The runner brought the dessert and set it in the middle of the table since we only ordered one and then picked up the dinner plates so we didn't have to clear the table. and again, before we had even finished the dessert the waitress came with the ticket and said "do you need your parking ticket stamped and I'll just leave this here for you" -- the bill. Yes, by then, we were ready to leave

Always a excellent choice. This restaurant has the finest steak cuts in this area. The hosts are gracious and pleasant. Always come here for that special dinner or to entertain out of town guests. Chattanooga's best !

Manager seated us, carried dirty dishes and whatever it took to make things happen for the place to run its best on the 4th of July. thank you for the experience

Hennen’s lived up to its reputation. Great food, a relaxed atmosphere and our waiter was a pro. Food was prepared perfectly, and we weren’t rushed at all. I wouldn’t hesitate to return the next time I’m visiting Chattanooga.

Hennen's is consistently good and the ambience is very nice but not stuffy. The steak and seafood selections are always prepared well. We dine here with business colleagues and always have a great experience all around.

They did many things right, but my steak was cold, not cooked properly (I ordered medium rare and it came out rare) and the lobster bisque was lobsterless and bland.
We had a good experience, but I wasn't blown away. The bread was excellent and the crab cakes were pretty good! I get the whole "no salt on the table" thing, but you have to have well seasoned food in order to be that bold.

Celebrated Golden Anniversary and was not disappointed with Hennen's as the place to do so.
The waiter was attentive, the steaks were cooked to perfection and the loaded baked potatoes were tasty.
My wife enjoyed a glass of Zinfandel. We shared a salad and grilled asparagus.
As a gift to us on our special evening the restaurant provided a delicious chocolate swirl cheesecake-slice.
Plan to enjoy Hennen's again.

My wife and I had been here before, on a weekday. We were not aware of the shorter hours on weekends so we had to stand in the heat after walking 5 blocks due to no parking available nearby, that we were aware of. Since there weren't more than about 4 couples waiting to go in, it would have been nice if they would open the door an let people in until they started serving. The do have seating in the front. Especially when several employees just hung around the front desk doing nothing discernable. My wife and I are over 60 and we were miserable. We almost went somewhere else just to get into air conditioning. Food was good and the service was excellent.

Very good overall. Sirloin Steak was a little tough. I asked for rare on prime rib and it was a little more on the rare side than I liked- however, I just know now to ask for it to be done a little more. Great atmosphere. Validating our parking was a nice touch. We plan to take friends there in the near future.

Food was very good, server was very pleasant but a bit inexperienced or may have been hampered by timing of food coming from the kitchen. I have been here several times and the fish dishes have always been excellent. Also had a chopped salad which was a bit different from usual offering and very good.

My friend and I were there for the first time. The service was excellent. We both had a filet and potatoes. They were excellent. We both had a coctail with dinner. Both were great ... And the alcohol to mix ratio was perfect. We chose a chocolate martini for dessert, and ended up having two. The location was perfect for a pre-Riverbend dinner.
