Diner Reviews
  • "Super experience. We had a reservation and while they were busy we were promptly seated. We had the salmon and a fish special. Both excellent. Server was pleasant, good explanations, and timely with check ins and drinks. I am not a local but would go back for sure. No valet but garage is right next door and easy. Only criticism is I asked for my salmon medium rare and it came medium. Still very good."

  • "This was our 4th visit to Hennen's and we absolutely love it. The staff go out of their way to make you feel like you're the only diners there. It's our new favorite place to eat."

  • "I met a business contact at Hennen's last Friday and the referral I had received was spot on. Food was awesome and the service was top notch. I'll be sure to return on my next trip to Chattanooga!"

  • "If you are in a hurry, go somewhere else. Decent ambiance but service was lacking. Our waiter could have used some more experience before waiting tables at this restaurant. Poor kid had to get a manager to open the bottle of wine for a table next to us. That just isn't acceptable at a restaurant like this. Food was ok, but not over the top. Had an 8pm reservation and we didn't walk out until close to 945. Most of the wait was on the first round of drinks then the food. Took way to long to get our food for that time of night (post dinner rush). Once the food arrived, it was good. Well seasoned and cooked the way we asked. Did have to ask for steak knives though....back to the inexperience thing. Would try again if in town."

  • "The 2nd year for a Birthday lunch & it was wonderful. The food was delicious, but pales in comparison to the outstanding service! From the hostess to the people that cleared the table, each one added to a special meal. Our server was beyond compare! I kick myself for not remembering his name; but I've not had better, more caring service, anywhere. He took care of little, unnecessary things that made the lunch special. He remembered each little thing; this allowed me to enjoy the meal, also. I've had other meals here and liked them. But, the staff is all the reason needed to go to Hennen's!"

  • "Hennen's never disappoints. My steak was perfect as usual and their French Onion Soup is so yummy. Their servers are always so nice and provide excellent service. I love Hennen's!"

  • "Our dining experience at Hennen's was excellent! The food quality and preparation is a definite cut above other restaurants in our city. We always make a reservation and the staff greets us, expects us, and has our table ready and waiting. The service has always been great. The chef special choices are superb. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys quiet atmosphere, delicious food, and great service!"

  • "I enjoyed the atmosphere and my husband enjoyed his steak. But I asked for mine extra well done and it was still pink and bleeding, I sent it back and when it was brought back it was still pink. I didn't want to send it back again so my husband finished it. That was disappointing since it was expensive but everything else was good."

  • "First time there.I had been apparently "re-gifted" an old gift card that had diminished in value. The Mgr on duty, Daniel, came to our table to explain and then honored the original amount of the gift card. The meal itself was very pleasant to begin with but this was the cherry on top. I will definitely return!"

  • "We had a fantastic experience. Great food from start to finish. We had an excellent server with Sam. When she noticed that my steak was over cooked, she promptly ordered the kitchen to make a fresh one, without me even asking. I actually appreciated that she did so without asking me if I wanted that, preventing me from feeling like I was troubling them with my over cooked steak. The second one was perfect at medium rare. We will definitely be going back!"

  • "My husband and I recently tried Hennen's for the first time for our anniversary. Our experience was fantastic, from the food, to the service, to the prices! We had an appetizer, two glasses of wine, a dessert martini, a dessert, and both had steaks and our bill was only $97. I was shocked at what a great deal it was for such a nice place. We will definitely be returning!"

  • "Very poor service. Only saw our server 4 times during the meal. Had to stop other servers to ask for items, including water refils. Ordered appetizers, alcohol, steaks and were so ready to leave declined dessert. Food was not worth the prices and everything was very cold, not sure if this was kitchens fault or excessive wait time between items. Traveled from out of town for a romantic getaway weekend in Chattanooga. Chose this restaurant based on online reviews. Very disappointed."

  • "From the excellent Catchup and Cheese Board appetizers to the perfectly prepared Duck Shrimp and Grits and Fish entrees this meal was a winner. The drinks and wine were all a good pour and finished off with Cheese Cake everyone was happy. The only negative was having to wait for our reservation."

  • "We haven't lived in Chattanooga very long. We moved from Knoxville where Regas' Restaurant was our special celebration restaurant of choice as well as my parents' choice. I had heard great things about Hennen's and thought this might be a good restaurant in Chattanooga to replace Regas. We loved it and would highly recommend it to everyone. It was a quiet evening because of the weather, the food excellent and good service. We were seated quickly and taken care of soon after. We can't comment on the wine list or bar since we are teetotalers. We will be coming back for sure."

  • "Hennen's is great for seafood and steak, and also if you have a desire to go "outside the usual" and try something new. They also offer vegetarian options, which is nice for a mixed crowd. The ambiance is sparse and open (so it can get a little noisy when crowded), but it is not overly distracting. The wine list is extensive, and servers courteous and knowledgeable about how the food is prepared. I would definitely recommend it!"

  • "We went to Hennen's for our 35th anniversary. We both had the prime rib. My wife got the wilted spinach and I got the mashed potatoes. The prime rib was excellent as was the salad and the masked potatoes. My wife's spinach was not to her liking though. The warm chocolate cake was great also"

  • "It had been two or three years since we had dined at Hennen's. The last time or two we were there, the quality of the food was not up to par. We are glad we decided to give this restaurant another try. The food was back up to Hennen's standards, and the service and atmosphere were outstanding as usual. Hennen's is back on our list of regular restaurants for romantic dining."

  • "I have visited Hennen's on several special occasions and recommended it to many friends. When I selected Hennen's for my Valentine's Day dinner before the show, I expected the quality I have always enjoyed. This evening, it was not as good and I recalled. Our reservation was honored, and we were seated promptly. I have been seated by the kitchen in the past and had no problems, but this evening, it was very noisy and distracting. I ordered the Rack of Lamb, which is a favorite of mine. It was prepared well and the flavor of the lamb and herbs was wonderful; however, the spinach and fingerling potato side did not compliment the meal like I have come to expect. My wife ordered the Red Snapper special and enjoyed very much."

  • "Wife and I picked Hennan's based on web reviews. Online reservations were perfect. Service was top shelf and very friendly. Oysters were very small but good. French onion soup was great. Prime rib had excellent taste but much more fat than anticipated. Expected a better cut. Will try again when in Chattanooga again."

  • "Pros My wife and I went to Hennen’s on the recommendation of a friend. They raved about the Southwest Shrimp and NY Strip Steak. Indeed the Shrimp was wonderful. The bread was awesome and our waiter was excellent. Cons When we walked in the door both girls behind the desk where on the phone. We waited as they answered the phone time after time. When they finally did speak to us, instead of saying Welcome to Hennen’s they said “do you have a reservation”? We did and were taken to our seat and were given a different dinner menu. My issue that is if you are going to change your menu for a special day like valentines you should update your website to reflect that. I heard two other customers upset that the menu did not match the web site."

  • "From the welcoming hostess to the attentive and knowledgable servers, the only thing we found better was the food. Steaks were delicious and perfectly done. Seafood was fresh and flavorful. While not extensive, the wine list is more than adequate. Worth every penny and a true gem in Chattanooga. We plan to return whenever we visit."
