We visited Chattanooga and enjoyed Brunch at Hennen’s on a Sunday morning. We made a reservation and were seated right away outside at our request with a great view of the river.

Upon initial review of the menu we noticed a wonderful variety of dishes that would satisfy any type of craving. It was actually one of the largest brunch selections with the most diversity I have experienced. We later learned that Brunch is new at Hennen’s and the menu had just been re-vamped. It was truly amazing.

Our server Chase was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. We ordered drinks and food both of which were absolutely delicious and arrived within an acceptable amount of time. Our drinks stayed full and he was very personable. Chase was great, the bartender made great drinks, and the chef absolutely amazing.

This is THE perfect restaurant for brunch. I’m already ready to go back!!

Highly, highly recommended!

Our party of 4 enjoyed the ribeyes as well as the Snapper Imperial special. We eat at Hennens every time we visit Chattanooga. We always start with the Lobster Bisque and a couple of cocktails. Paul has been our server many times and he is excellent!

The food was outstanding! My steak was cooked to perfection! I had the 16 oz ribeye and my wife had the 9 oz filet! The salad was fresh and the calimari was crispy and very succulent! Service was spot on and the ambiance was perfect! We actually sat outside and the weather was just right! Hennens has always been our go to place for fine dining steaks and atmosphere!

Showed up for dinner reservations on Saturday at 5 for our anniversary dinner. Our waitress was nice and knowledgeable. The drinks came out decently fast and had good flavor but that’s where the good ended. I ordered a ribeye steak that came out of kitchen in 4-5 minutes and my fiancé had the salmon that came out in same time. The food came out even before our bread arrived. The steak was barley edible it was tough and flavorless even a basic cook knows a good steak takes longer than 4-5 minutes. Only reason I could eat was cause the mushrooms it came with. my fiancé’s salmon was subpar at best. You can get Better more flavorful and juicy salmon from a Costco take home trey you bake in oven. The check arrived at the table before either of us was done eating.We came in ate and left in 30 mins. I felt like I was brought in and rushed out with over $100 tab after tip. I will never return and urge anyone trying to have a romantic dinner do not come here you will be brought in served bad food and rushed out.

Food and ambience was excellent. Great value. Caliber of food was at the Ruth’s Chris/ Morton’s level but less expensive. Service was of high caliber as well. We were visiting from out of town and found it to be a great value and lovely atmosphere. Fine dining but comfortable. Great combo. Both steaks and seafood options were yummy!

We recently dined at Hennen’s for the first time while visiting Chattanooga for the weekend, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is tastefully appointed, quiet and relaxing. The service was excellent, and the food was fantastic. They have a decent wine list and great menu options. I highly recommend it for a quiet, relaxing dinner!

My husband and I went for our anniversary and it was our first real date since my mom had passed away. The service was absolutely amazing. The food was indescribably perfect. My husband had the house filet and it was seared and cooked to perfection and my scallops were absolutely decadent. As we were leaving I asked a gentleman up front to take our picture and he genuinely cared about getting a good shot for us so we had a mini photo shoot😊. There are no words for how perfect the staff at Hennen’s made our night. I most definitely recommend them for anything!

Extremely user friendly from the moment i went online and made a dinner reservation last minute, until i arrived at the restaurant and was seated promptly. The ambience of the restaurant was extremely appealing, the service of the waitress was impeccable offering a fine selection of sauvigon blanc wine to complement my market choice fish red snapper. and asparagus prepared exceptionally well by the chefs. Would rate this restaurant five stars on overall appeal, only downside a tad bit pricey.

If you want to wow someone on a first date, celebrate a special anniversary with your loved one, or treat yourself to a spectacular evening alone there is no finer place around. Everything from the food to the service to the ambience puts every other dining establishment within 100 miles to shame. Whole heatedly recommend.

We have always enjoyed dinner here. Consistently excellent food and service. Not quite as thrilled with brunch. Brad provided great service and the food was OK but it was pricy for what we had and I was ready to eat again an hour after brunch.

Let me just say, this was my first visit to Hennan's. Along with the fact it that it just happened to be my birthday, this was one of the best restaurant experiences of my life. I can't say enough about the service and staff. The GM Yaser Hanieh, and Dawn our server, were simply AMAZING!! So much so, I can honestly say that they have earned our business for years to come. We couldn't have asked for better service on such a special occasion.

Excellent dinner, space between occupied tables and server wore mask. Our waiter Paul was the best!
Only complaint was host. We arrived maybe 8 minutes early and were told we had to wait until 8pm. We waited outside and came back in at 8:05 since noone bothered to come for us and he didn't recall our name and had seated other parties right away.
Also did not have the bottle of wine we first asked for.
