Steaks, salmon & scallops were excellent. Blue cheese crust on the filet was not good- thick tasteless- could not even taste blue cheese in it. Peeled it off - steak was excellent alone.

The food and service was great but the portions are very poor. I would not recommend coming here if you are hungry.

We had the Delmonico ribeye and it was most likely the worst steak at a restaurant I’ve ever had. It tasted like an overcooked thin slab of bad sirloin.

This is a classic steakhouse with excellent service. I started with a cocktail that included pear nectar and coconut rum - really good. Ribeye steak with horseradish crust was perfect! I topped it off with a chocolate volcano cake.
I highly recommend Hennen’s.

Hennen’s was fabulous! My fiancé and I decided to try this restaurant for the first time on Valentine’s Day. We were not disappointed at all. Our food was outstanding! We’re still talking about how good the calamari was!

Went to Hennen’s again after not going for many years. Was very pleasantly surprised. Couldn’t remember why we hadn’t been in so many years but glad we went. They had a special menu for Valentine’s Day & what we ordered was delicious! Will definitely be going back.

Always love Hennen’s. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that they had an special abbreviated menu for Valentines and I was really looking forward to a dish that is on the regular menu. Other wise everything was perfect as always.

Over priced steaks. Waitress was very nice, but service was lacking since we didn't not buy a bottle of wine like surrounding tables.

The restaurant and the service were great. I ordered the Ribeye with mashed potatoes. My steak came out pretty quickly. It was warm and not so great. It kind of seemed like it was cooked earlier and then reheated. It definitely was not worth the price.

We had reservations for 2 to celebrate our anniversary. They sat us in the open area table section with a large, louder party (with young children) which made it difficult to enjoy our evening due to the commotion. Our salmon dip appetizer was riddled with bones and my steak, requested as medium, was rare at best. Service was attentive and doing their best while juggling a large party, but for the price, we would have opted somewhere more intimate with better food.

My ribeye, while quite tasty, had a lot of sinew. My colleagues had filets, and were very pleased. Our service was exceptional, and Hennen's remains my go-to restaurant!

We came here while on vacation to celebrate our 7 years, and everything was so good from the moment we walked in until the moment we left! Our waiter was Brad, who was fantastic. We were impressed with how well he knew his stuff! He also wished us a happy anniversary right off the bat, which was very sweet. I had the soup of the day and the scallop dinner and my boyfriend had the fish of the day. It was the BEST meal we had our entire week long trip, and we ate at a lot of places! The type of food that literally makes you go "mmm"! It was very pretty inside as well, and everyone working there seemed genuinely happy to be there, funny, and interactive with guests. Definitely recommend!

Hennen's has your typical upscale steak and seafood restaurant vibe which was a weclome environment since I was on travel from DC to Chattanooga and it honestly felt like I could have been in a nice steak restaurant in DC. The interior was very classy and the service was wonderful. Our waitstaff introduced themselves to us and took the time to smalltalk and answer multiple questions regarding the menu offerings and even asked the chef if we could have something that was on the online menu but no longer offered on the actual menu. Unfortunately while they couldn't accommodate that request they were very apologetic and attentive. I was a little disappointed by my chicken piccata because it did not come with the standard angel hair pasta which I was expecting - I have never in my life seen chicken picata served with just the chicken and that was surprising. Everyone enjoyed their meals and our friend who had the filet said it was cooked perfectly. I had the creme brulee for dessert and it was classic and wonderful.

Excellent overall. Only thing out of step was the next course on our table before we had a chance to finish the current course. Felt rushed.
Then my dates entree came out prior to mine by at least 5 minutes. That doesn’t seem long but it was filet and crab cakes - she was eating alone. We ordered the same thing. Not characteristics of a $180.00 meal.
Our server was aware though and apologetic without us saying anything.
I would still highly recommend.

It could have been a much better experience had the server been on top of his game. Ordered a scotch with a rock and lemon twist. The big rock was melted by the time I got the drink. I ordered a second one that didn't come out until after my dinner. Ordered a salmon dip as an appetizer and that came out after our salads. We weren't finished with the dip and our main course came out. When you pay $230 for a meal, you expect better service. All of the food was good. Ruth's Chris would have been a better value on the particular night we were at Hennen's. Having said all that, we understand that every restaurant can have a bad night.

The server was ok. He made jokes about my Louis Vuitton purse which was kind of strange. He focused all of his attention to one of my guest at the table and only talked to her when explaining specials. One of the entree’s (salmon) was very thin and overcooked. He said it would be medium and it was well done and hard to cut. We overheard another server and he explained everything to his table with professionalism. We had been looking forward to dinner here but was somewhat disappointed with food and server.

Very average steak. Service was poor. Way overpriced relative to the quality of the meat and the flavor of the sides. Not worth the money.

My wife and I split a Delmonico steak with herb mashed potatoes. I am pretty particular about my steaks and this one was phenomenal. Really nice flavor and crust on it. We had the cheesecake for dessert, which was also very good. Our waiter was great too, very friendly and attentive.
