Our server was not attentive and there were long wait times between us being checked on. Another server brought us bread and refreshed our drinks. Longhorn serves a better New York Strip. What kind of restaurant does not have Amaretto for an after dinner drink?

Our meals were excellent! My wife had the salmon and I had the split bone ribeye which was described as more marbled than the regular ribeye. It was the most enjoyable steak I’ve had in years! Pricey but worth it. The extensive wine list was fairly priced in my opinion. Our wines by the glass were fine and generous.

This was our 2nd Mothers Days visit to Hennen's. I believe it will become a tradition for my Husband and I. The food is outstanding, and our server Tarah was quite accomodating. Answering all our questions and making helpful suggestions. She was attentive, in a non obtrusive way, and made our experience that much better. Hennen's is fortunate to have her on their staff. We will definately return.

Our waiter was wonderful. He had just the right amount of friendliness and described the dishes very accurately. Our cocktail, a Manhattan was one of the best I've ever had. When we first were seated at our table, I was concerned the large party of students dressed in prom gowns and tuxes would be too noisy. But it turned out to be fine and fun to see all the dresses. The food was very good. I am an accomplished cook myself so I tend to be critical. The steak and scallops was excellent except for the Bordelaise. That seemed thickened with corn starch instead of reduced and I didn't care for it. Everyone had the salmon with spinach risotto. That was beautiful and delicious. Overall, a very enjoyable time and dinner at Hennen's.

I really want like Hennen's. The atmosphere is nice and the service was very good and I've heard good things from others. However, the food was bland and frankly, it didn't seem worth the cost. I had the special for the day which was tasteless at best. The cocktail I had tasted like cheap coolaide and vodka. I would try it again because it's always possible that it was a "bad day" and the regular menu is better. I would recommend trying it with some reservations...

We first visited Hennen's in 2015 while cruising America's Great Loop. At that time, we spent a terrific few days in Chattanooga, made memorable by our dining experience at Hennen's. We talked about it to everyone we knew who was cruising the area and encouraged them to visit this gem. This time, we were passing through by car and wondered if the restaurant could live up to the overall memory we held so dear of our previous time in the city. We are delighted to report that it did.

We enjoyed another lovely meal with an interesting and engaged server/somalier who enhanced our entree choices with the perfect wine selection. The menu was inspired, well prepared and well presented; the filet was a perfect medium-rare with a high quality beefy flavor and the scallops were equally tender and delicious with a delicate and flavorful crunch to the tops and bottoms. For dessert, the creme brulee was wonderful; the bread pudding was off the charts, well worth the calorie splurge. The poached pear flatbread appetizer is worth mentioning, too, as are our pre-dinner cocktails. The Rasperry Lemonade was tasty (if a bit sweet); the Muddled Orange Manhattan was a refreshing change and is a new favorite.

We are already looking forward to the next time we visit or pass through Chattanooga. It will definitely include another visit to Hennen's.

Very good food and sufficient choices to find something we liked. I cannot eat spicy and our server suggested the shrimp and grits gravy on the side just in case. It was a great suggestion as I was able to eat the dish but could not eat the gravy. Our only disappointment was the bread pudding...it was dried out and tough. Not as good as the desserts we had there on earlier visits. Will not order that again.

List above needs a choice such as: Tasty well prepared food. I would check that choice.

We had never heard of Hennen's before as we stay in the UK. The description of a steakhouse does not do it justice. There was a varied menu and our server, Gabriel, was outstanding. There are many steakhouses in the US, such as Texas Roadhouse and the Outback, but Hennen's is a class act. Well done! The only improvement I could suggest is to add to the website that they sell wines by the bottle. So many others in the US do not.

The Lobster bisque was amazing! Actually the best I have ever eaten. The service was excellent. Chef specials and menu were easy to understand. Perfect place for a nice date night. This place exceeded my expectations in every area. The steak was aged beautifully. It was tender and juicy. We will make this a permanent stop every time we are in the Chattanooga area.

We were there for Anniversary and I am a vet of the Restaurant business. It was a very good experience. We had good service and went because we were looking for Steak. They allowed me to bring in an older vintage wine from the year me and my wife were married. Very reasonable corkage. The dinner was very good! We will go back.
