The restaurant need to rethink the family meal option it doesn't make sense when you compare it to the menu. We saved $35 by ordering a la carte. Also, 3 eggs is a bit much, it should be an option. I did enjoy my food, especially the biscuits (yummy) with the honey butter and fig jelly. Will return soon.

Love this place. I went for brunch and love the option for single or shareable plates. Especially the fact the offer refillable plates of you do the shareable option. Really great service and love the atmosphere.

The service, ambience, and restaurant's presentation were amazing. The portions were huge and more than worth the moderate prices. The deviled eggs and hush puppies were delicious, as was the fried catfish. The macaroni and cheese was a little dry and overcooked and the collards were too sweet for my taste. The experience was fantastic overall, and I was too full to even order dessert.

Service was very good, fast and efficient. The entrees came out steaming hot and food was well seasoned, especially the fried chicken. We enjoyed ourselves and plan to try out the weekend brunch on our next visit.

Went to the Hen Quarter for my birthday. Customer service was excellent. I had to increase my numbers a few times and they did it without a problem. They seated us at a space large enough for party and the server was excellent as well as the food. My entire party enjoyed the experience and decided that we will go back again.

Our server was friendly and adept. She had no problem that one of us was running late.

The food was to die for! The best fried chicken I have ever had! Crispy, greaseless skin, moist meat — both the dark and white meat. That’s not anything I’ve ever encountered.

Please do get the chicken and waffles, their signature dish. Note it’s a lot of food.

The Brussels sprouts appetizer is excellent too.

I look forward to going back for more.

We had WONDERFUL service. Everything was amazing. Delicious cocktails, appetizers, and entrees. There was an extremely loud table behind us, but our waiter was great and we were able to laugh about it after they left.

I enjoyed my first time at Hen Quarter. Some things were not fully explained for the family style brunch so we had questions when the bill came. The food was really good though. I would go back.

Hen Quarter is very cute. The environment is calm and inviting, perfect for a chill brunch. The server was kind and checked on us appropriately throughout our meal. The “endless” mimosas were great!

We’ve been taking out from the restaurant connected to Hen Quarter all during the pandemic, it was nice to eat in upstairs. We enjoyed the pimento cheese appetizer. I liked my crabcakes although they were not my most favorite crabcakes in the world. Our server was fantastic. Next time I go I’m going to get the fried chicken I’ll split the plate with my husband.

I am from the Midwest and have been to Hen Quarter about 4-5 times now. I didn’t know brunch was a thing until I moved to the DMV. I am consistently impressed with Hen Quarter, both the quality of food and the service. Both of the aforementioned are unmatched. I will continue to be a customer and bring out of town guests to Hen Quarter for brunch!! Thank you for always making the dining experience memorable and the food remarkable! 10 stars!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
