    Overall, a decent meal. Service above average. The scallop dish was lacking; more of an appetizer plate. Steaks (strip) grilled well but not a prime cut. Been twice-not sure about a third. Very much a business dinner spot. The chef may want to crank up the imagination.

    Arrived for our 615pm reservation a few minutes early and was seated withing 5 minutes. The main point of this review is the very/very/very slow service by Hennen's restaurant that I have been to many times over the past five years. I brought my family of (4) for a birthday celebration dinner for my oldest son. Our server was Courtney - nice young women who easily outlined the specials. We placed our drink and appetizer orders immediately.... it took 40 minutes to get our appetizers which were the roasted cauliflower and the calamari. The roasted cauliflower was great - served hot, nice spice to it, really a hit - 5 Stars! The calamari that I have had many times before came out cold.... soggy.... I assume it had be finished much earlier and just sat.. and sat... and sat for 30 minutes before our server delivered it to our table. Bad way to start the dinner. Next item - drink service was so very slow.... we sat at the restaurant until about 8pm or 1-hour & 45 minutes... we got two drinks because between each order it took 30-40 minutes to deliver it. Our server (Courtney) also said she would bring some bread & butter.. it never showed up.... Our main courses we ordered around 640pm or even before our appetizers arrived.... but they did not make it to our table until 7:20pm or 40 minutes later..... the fish was great (nice Caribbean spice), our filet was ordered "medium" but came out medium rare - was still very good. The mash potatoes were over-whipped & tasted 'grainy' which happens when you over mash/whip them. The last entree was a New York Strip - was ordered "Medium Rare" and came our well done... not much pink at all, overcooked. So - just a disappointing experience at Hennen's and there are too many options locally for good steak to settle for poor service and improperly cooked/served food. Next time will go to Main Street Meats, Bridgeman's Chophouse at the Read, or Ruth Chris.. or even the Whitebird at the Edwin Hotel has a nice filet.

    Birthday dinner for myself and fiance. I read all the reviews and we decided on Hennens. Best decision ever! Seated at reservation time, and Paul was our waiter. Based on reviews I knew the service would be awesome. Paul was the best. He knew all the menu items and made the best reccomendations. We both left after having appetizers, dinner and desert saying "that was the best meal I've ever had". We eat out often and enjoy great food and service, Hennens was top notch! Food cooked perfectly, great service. and a warm friendly enviroment. I wish I could eat there once a week, or twice....Will definately be back and if you go, ask for Paul to be your waiter. Thank you Hennen's! Well done!

    Our first visit to Hennen’s was a very good experience. The food was excellently prepared and service was great and not pushy. We had the scallops and steak Oscar and was exceptional! For dessert be sure to order the sticky toffee carrot cake which was unusual and delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant for a nice evening out.

    The overall experience at Hennen's was excellent. The food was perfectly prepared and the taste was extraordinary. From the appetizer through main course to dessert, each dish was unique and tasted fantastic. I've eaten at enough fine dining restaurants to know when a place has an excellent chef... and Hennen's does! You will not be disappointed!

    It was our 10 Year Wedding Anniversary and I wanted the best steakhouse in town and this was definitely it! We got the Ribeye and Salmon w/ Risotto and Loaded Baked Potato and Crème Brûlée. The food DID NOT DISAPPOINT. 💯 Only issue we came across was our server, she must’ve been new or not fully trained. She did not check on us but ONE time our entire visit. I tried to signal her but still nothing.

    We first came to Hennen’s last summer during a weekend getaway. Everywhere needed a reservation but we managed to get a seat at the bar. We were blown away by the best steak we’ve ever had. We live in Nashville and have since tried several steakhouses in town but none have lived up to Hennen’s. So when we came back for an overnight in Chattanooga I immediately made a reservation. Once again, it did not disappoint! Excellent food, service, and location. Also the crab cakes were excellent, as were the house made fries. We’ll definitely be back!

    We’re locals and Hennen’s is one of our go to restaurants. The customer service is always top notch. They go out of their way to make each dining experience the very best that it can be. On top of that, the food is some of the best you will find! My husband and I typically choose the seafood but you honestly can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. If you’re thinking about going then you absolutely should give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

    My partner and I had dinner for my birthday. Our server was Ruth, and she was amazing! She was kind, knowledgeable, and quick! She really elevated the experience for us! We had the bruschetta for our appetizer. The portioning was spot on for the price, and the fish itself was perfectly crafted so that each bite had a taste of everything. We had the Short Rub and the Flounder for our entrees. Both dishes were above and beyond my expectations. The portions were large, and the flavors were exquisite! The atmosphere was also incredible! It was clearly a busy Saturday night, yet it felt like we reserved the place to ourselves. The noise was minimal, and the lighting perfect. Overall, this was the absolute best birthday dinner experience. 10/10

    Just a short walk from the Edwin Hotel, Hennen’s did not disappoint! All four of us had delicious meals. Hard pressed to say which was best since we each enjoyed what we ordered so much. Great service with a birthday dessert to boot! Pleasantly surprised when the bill came. Very reasonable & yummy! We’ll recommend to anyone heading to ‘Nooga. We will be back.
