Diner Reviews
  • "Our second visit, service and food excellent both times. Gabriel was our waiter, he was very attentive very knowledgeable about the menus. Outstanding service from Gabriel. The filet is amazing, as well as the shrimp and grits. Perfect evening out, will return."

  • "The Hostess, Grace was efficient and friendly- which is paramount to starting a great dining experience. Antonio was our waiter - he was prompt with the beverages, menu explanations, friendly and upbeat. The quality/done-ness/presentation of the filet I had was on par with any of the steakhouses with more well known names- this was my first visit; however, I was directed by a local who claimed it was great- & it was. The value for the dollar makes Hennen's a place to dine- especially if you only have one night. The location is in the newly renovated downtown area, near the aquarium= clean and safe."

  • " The location is very convenient to the Chattanooga attractions. The food was very well prepared and the service was excellent. The atmosphere was good, however the backround noise was moderately loud so intimate conversation was difficult at times."

  • "My family and I enjoyed the dinning experience at Hennen's. The services was excellent and could answer any questions I had about the food menu and the wine list. both my daughters enjoyed their stone seared salmon and cheese tortellini. My husband's NY strip was cooked to perfection, as well as my tagliatelle pasta was very tasty. This was our second visit and will be dining there again in the near future."

  • "Our first time in Chattanooga - celebrating anniversary #33. Based on Trip Advisor reviews, (and the fact that we were staying in the Riverfront area), we decided to make reservations at Hennen's. Lucky us! Everything about Hennen's was perfect from start to finish: although bustling on a Friday night, we were seated punctually at our reservation time of 8pm. The restaurant was very busy but never too loud. We shared delicious crab cakes for an appetizer, we had the salad course which was so fresh and appetizing, and our entrees were divine…filet cooked to perfection for him, melt-in-your-mouth scallops for her. And a lovely rose' wine. Best of all, our waiter Brad was beyond awesome! An excellent evening! We will return."

  • "I found Hennen's on Trip Advisor and the reviews were all positive, and I concur. Ironically, I travel to Chattanooga a lot, but I had never even heard of it! It was GREAT - from the drinks to the entrees (filets) to the dessert! The owner even stopped by and introduced himself and thanked us for coming in. I will definitely go back!"

  • "Overall experience was great. Wife ordered Sirloin, I had a Delmonico. Very pleased with cut and seasoning. I enjoyed their tasty white bean chili. Wife said house dressing was very good. Server was Adam... Pleasant gentleman that made us happy to dine there. More that one member of the staff acknowledged our anniversary, making us happy that they cared about our special occasion. Warm Chocolate cake (at waiter's suggestion) and amoreto cheesecake for dessert. We will be back."

  • "Our dinner was based around a potential job applicant for a university faculty position. The dinner was for the candidate to ask questions and for me to go over the interview itinerary for the next day. Hennen's has excellent food and atmosphere where the dining experience was quiet enough to converse."

  • "My husband and I chose Hennen's to celebrate our anniversary this year and we are so glad we did. We made a reservation on Open Table and let them know in the comment section that it was for an anniversary dinner. When we arrived, they greeted us with anniversary congratulations and led us to a nice and private reserved table. We actually sat near another couple celebrating their wedding anniversary which confirmed for us that we picked a great place :) The staff was wonderful and accommodating and the food was great. We had wine, calamari, bread (so good), Tagliaterra Pasta, and Braised Short Rib. It was a late Sunday evening so the restaurant was not crowded at all which made it a really special place to celebrate our anniversary!"

  • "Great service, food is top notch. I will make sure to stop here when I come back. Shrimp and grits here was the best I have ever tasted. The steak needs no review...it's what they are known for and for good reasons."

  • "To say I was underwhelmed by the food at Hennen's would be an understatement. High priced, the entrees are not equitable with the pices. For example, three (3) scallops were served for $29.00. And they were not worth nearly $10 a piece. The Prime Rib was chewy and fat. The experience was just not that memorable. For dessert, the creme brûlée was cold, even the sugar coat. Probably prepped hours before service and then chilled. Not good. All in all a disappointment."

  • "Hennen's was perfect for our wedding anniversary. We were seated ahead of our reservation. The atmosphere was casual but special - there were families of tourists in shorts, but also business people celebrating a deal made and couples enjoying a night out. The food was perfection. Our server was familiar with every dish we asked about and helped us make new selections for us. We chose steaks, and they were amazing. We were treated to a specialty chocolate amaretto cheesecake complete with candle to celebrate, and it was one of the best desserts we've ever tasted! It was noisier than we expected, near the kitchen, but that actually helped us feel comfortable."

  • "We had a great time! Food was delicious, service was fantastic and the restaurant was very quite, romantic and clean. We certainly enjoyed our meal and spending our anniversary there. Will return if we are ever in the area again!"

  • "Best dining experience in a long time. We were seated promptly and were greeted immediately by the wait staff. Our lead waiter, Eugene, was very attentive and was great with his food suggestions. The food was excellent and was served timely. We never felt rushed or ignored. When in Chattanooga this restaurant is a must...."

  • "Service is outstanding and they have a good wine list. The wait staff is well versed in helping with wine selections if you need it. We were seated at our reservation time. The only negative is that we were put between 2 large and loud groups but both had cleared by the time we got our entree's. Our waitress Sam was phenomenal and attentive without being overbearing. The food was good and delivered to the table in a timely manner. I had a rib-eye that was great and my daughter had an outstanding filet. My wife had the snapper special of the evening and it was also very good. Given the food quality and level of service, we see Hennen's as an excellent value at the moderate prices charged."

  • "Had a great dinner meeting with colleagues from out of town. Good food and service; portion size on the scallop entree seemed a bit skimpy. Maybe quality over quantity... Or scallops are in high demand/short supply. Overall good experience."

  • "It was difficult to initially judge this book by its cover. The restaurant is handsomely decorated and you would think it was going to be very expensive. The prices were quite reasonable and the food was excellent. Gabriel, our waiter was knowledgeable and pleasant. The service was great, even when accommodating a special order. Not very many places cook a steak Pittsburgh style but Hennens did it well. Not your every day place but when you want a special evening check out Hennens."

  • "I had the 10oz sirloin with hollandaise. It was one of the best steaks I've had anywhere. We had the chocolate cake for desert. It was excellent also."

  • "I like to eat at nice steak restaurants, this is the best one yet. The prime rib was the best I've ever had. I loved the spinach salad. Husband had ribeye. The food is better than Bones in Atlanta or Stockyard in Nashville."

  • "Another wonderful dinner at Hennen's. Hostess greeted us at the door and escorted us to a private table with a great view of the restaurant. The server was vey nice and helpful with the menu and questions about food selections. We both ordered the 8 oz Filet and both were cooked perfectly. Probably the best steak in town."

  • "I am from Mississippi and it was my husband birthday, I wanted a special places for ma and him so I review Hennen's it was great and I recommend to everyone the food was hot the service was great. She was so nice (Kay) she told his what was most know for so we both had the fried shrimp for appetizers and we had the rib eye well done it was tender and juicy it was to much for me but they packed up for me to go and it was much better the next day lol. The herb mashpotates was so good. I will return again."

  • "Such a cool area but a less than mediocre restaurant experience. The service was a "team approach" which is a great idea in theory but only works if they all talk to one another and at least someone knows what is going on. I ordered a filet medium and it was delivered charred on the outside and cold on the inside. After I sent it back, it returned like charcoal. Then had to go inside the restaurant (from my outside table) to find my own salt and pepper since no one from the team bothered to check on the outside diners. Looked like a cool joint on Open Table and the menu seemed great... The execution was terrible. Big miss Hennen's."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Our first time to the restaurant and we had no way of knowing what to expect. The waiter was prompt and very pleasant, explaining the menu items and wine selections very clearly. I ordered a ribeye and it was prepared to a perfect medium rare. I have to say after all the description of the well-aged steaks served at Hennen's that the ribeye was good, but not as good as I expected. Again, not that it was bad, but after all the hype from the waiter I expected great. So if you're looking for a decent steak, you can get one here."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "You judge accordingly when the tab eclipses $100 per couple. The food is usually good, portions are good and the setting is nice. It's not unheard of to get a less than perfect plate of food, but overall execution is pretty high there. Steaks are salty but good, possibly due to some sort of secret prep method. We love it for special occasions. Go for lunch when possible and get the same feeling for a few less bucks. Hard not to get a steak at a steak joint, but the shrimp and grits is top shelf and as good as you'll find anywhere."

  • "The food was excellent and the service was the best I've had. We really enjoyed our first experience at your restaurant and would recommend it to others. My wife said it was the best steak she has ever had and the chocolate martini for dessert was outstanding."

Service was on point and attentive and the wine list was extensive and top notch. We will be back when in the area again."

  • "Great place for an evening out. I ordered the ribeye, my wife had the salmon.. I would have given it 5 stars but the steak was not very good due to the way it was cooked. Asked for medium well and it was rare, medium, medium well and burnt. They must have told the bus boy to cook it. It was a quality piece of meat.."
