Hennen's Ratings and Reviews

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.

You can never go wrong here. The service was not as good as usual but that may be because of the last day of riverbed was when we went.

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.

Wonderful food and service. This was the second time we have dined here. As good as we remembered. Wish we lived closer to enjoy it for all our special occasions.

Excellent service and impressive menu. Salmon entrée with spinach risotto was on point. Beef filet was extra tender and herb mashed potatoes were creamy and fluffy. And try the chocolate cake. It's flourless and yummy.

My wife and I stayed in chattanooga for our anniversary. We chose to eat at Hennen's over every other restaurant. We were so glad we did! The food was outstanding and the service excellent. I would highly recommend Hennen's to anyone.

First time and we lived the food and the facilities
Steak was great, Lamb was tough/ gammie,
Our first time, we thought it was a little more upscale, but it was a mix casual and business casual . We loved the crab cakes and salmon dip, rib eye steak was juicy and cook perfectly. We were disappointed in the lamb as it was a little tough and gammie tasting ( for the price we expected more). Desserts were awesome. Our service was awesome and made our celebration a nice experience. Wine list was nice.
Traveled from TX to visit our son who lives in that area. Wanted to take him and his GF to a nice dinner. The food was superb.. The only flaw in the evening was our waitress. . her mood was sour, she wouldn't smile, despite our attempts to be kind to her. I even told her I loved her earrings. She had a grim look on her face, and there was not a smile to be had! We watched other servers, and they were all happy and pleasant. Every other restaurant we went to during our stay, be it, bar, breakfast, etc.. the servers were friendly... We dropped $300.. here. BE FRIENDLY! that's all.. it never hurts to smile. But the steaks were VERY good!!!! So go for the food..
Good meal at reasonable prices.
Food selection was great, from lamb shanks to good selection of sea food. Something for everyone. Quality wine but not extravagant wine list. Super desserts and good service.

Been there about 6 times over the past 3 yrs. I'm not a full time resident or we would go more often. Everything was very good as usual. We usually go for special occasions and they do not disappoint.

Food excellent in preparation and presentation and wine list was good and fairly priced Our server did an excellent job and we will return.
Decent food, high price, grumpy staff!
I took my wife and two teenage boys here for a Mothers day dinner. The food was good but the service was slow. The wait staff did not smile or even speak at times, they just placed the food on the table and walked away. The price for the overall meal was high compared to other restaurants in the area.

Our server Whitney started out ok but then acted like she really was bothered to wait on us. Acted like we shouldn't ask for bread or ice for our water. Never asked if we would Like another glass of wine.
Not very special
We typically have had great meals here and for the first time, tried the mother's day brunch. The food was good, but very lackluster, the meat was overcooked meat and not the usual excellent fare that we expect from Hennens, especially for a special Brunch menu. Will probably not return for a special brunch again.
One of our favorite places to eat in Chatt!
A great place to celebrate with family! We always enjoy our meals at Hennen's. Great Menu with great food.

Amazing time!!! Food was great. Just went with the recommended wine and food - did not lead us astray!!
The atmosphere was nice, the waiter was great. They gave us plenty of time between our appetizer and the main course. I was not impressed with the shaved prime rib sandwich. It was bland and there was barely any horseradish sauce on it. My husband enjoyed his burger though, which was perfectly cooked to medium (not easy to find in my experience). We thought it was pricey.
I took my parents here for their anniversary and we very much enjoyed it. Everything we ordered was fantastic. The filet, scallops, snapper, seared tuna, and calamari were fantastically prepared. We also really appreciated Eugene, our waiter; as he was very friendly, funny, and knowledgeable about the menu. Overall we had a great experience and would love to come back soon.

Eugene was our waiter and he left the most incredible impression on my boyfriend and I. By far the best waiter I have ever had, he was very personable and really knew how to make one feel welcomed. Every time we go back, were specifically asking for Eugene. Furthermore, the food was impeccable.
Overnight stay with hubby
Great food husband had the red snapper special, he claimed it was one the best he has had I ordered the salmon Cobb salad it was wonderful the homemade pesto dress was delicious light but very flavorful, the salmon was lightly smoked not over bearing. Service by Christy was perfect.
Outside seating was nice, potatoes tasted like instant potatoes, short ribs were not short ribs but a chunk of pot roast as it was dry and not fatty as short ribs should be. Service and management was good.
