Southern
Hen Quarter Dublin artfully blends sophisticated southern cuisine with an upscale modern lounge feel. While rustic charm and traditions have their place, especially in the south. We are less conventional because we believe at our core, upscale dining should be unpredictable and unprecedented. As we carefully prepare your food and handcraft your cocktails we believe that the thing about our cuisine is it brings folks together from all walks of life and puts smiles on their faces. So, come let us take you on the main line through the south from the bayous of Louisiana to the Spanish moss-covered oaks of Georgia. Then on to the rocky top mountains of Tennessee and down home through the blue grass of Kentucky. Dinner menu available starting at 5pm.

Mediocre food, terrible service. My glass sat empty and after asking for syrup for my waffle twice, it never came and I finished my average food without it. The place wasn’t even busy.

Food was so-so, not anything I would recommend. The servers were slow and not personable. We were sat next to 2 dirty tables that did not get cleaned for at least an hour. It took our waitress almost 20 minutes to bring drinks. Waited an hour for food. This was on a Sunday afternoon with not very many people in the restaurant. Two different people sitting close to us also complained about their service, one table had to shout at the waitress so she would even acknowledge them. Overall food was good but not great, service was AWFUL, the music and atmosphere were not great, I wouldn’t recommend or return.

Food taste & presentation was great. Only issue with the food would be that the collard greens had a sweet taste to them. The server we had was not good. She moved around us, interacting with her other tables & barely showed up for us. We had to ask other servers for items such as straws & drinks. A table nearby us who had just arrived only about 10 minutes before us, received their food, drinks, to go boxes & check before our order was ever taken. Other than our server, this place was wonderful & I plan on going back very soon.

We won’t be going back. For what the meal cost and only 1 of the 4 people at the table thinking it was ok, it’s not worth it. It’s very cold and looks just like every other restaurant in Bridge Park. A massive spot with no ambiance.

Beautiful restaurant, but do not recommend. First, my husband ordered bourbon which could have come neat (without ice), that he sent back. They returned with the same bourbon, chilled and watered down. Fried chicken was rather tasteless. Mac and cheese was very good. My $42 steak that I ordered medium arrived rare. Too bad. Really pretty restaurant and interesting menu.

Food was excellent - corn bread was surprisingly good. The only ding is the conversations at the nearby tables in the front room really carry and was a little noisy.

Walked in and the environment was warm and inviting. Our server was outstanding...so nice and helpful. The food was wonderful! I had the Fried Chicken and Waffles with a side of Mac and Cheese. So full of flavor and had enough to take home for the next day. Price is a little higher but worth it. Good music playing in the background but not too loud. Could still have a conversation with my husband. Great drink selection and my husband was able to try several of the scotches before he got one. Overall, great experience!

My meal was decent but my husband’s steak wasn’t great and his oysters were awful (way over dressed with the vinaigrette put on them). Our table overlooked construction....he switched seats with me so I wouldn’t have the glaring sun in my face (ended up borrowing my sunglasses to wear....ps every customer facing that direction had sunglasses on inside).

Restaurant needs to get some classy shades on those large windows 1. For sun and 2. For blocked view of crappy construction. Literally right out our window was a random yellow extension cord and tools just left. So not the vibe I was expecting. All looks very unfinished.

And despite requesting a booth on open table we were shoved to a small table. We asked in person for booth but they told us they couldn’t accommodate. There were two other rooms with plenty of seating yet they crammed everyone in room off of bar with sun glaring at all of us. Made zero sense.

The entire night was way over-priced for what we got and highly unlikely we would go back.

We have enjoyed Hen Quarter many times both as a family and socially with friends. Our visit on 8/9/19 was the best yet. Our waitress went above and beyond and was so warm and personable, as well as attentive. She asked each of us our name and then remembered them. Outstanding. I hope we have Joshlynn again. The food was delicious as always and one little hiccup was taken care of immediately and without issue. The drink menu is superb. We will definitely be back. This is definitely becoming one our go to restaurants and Friday night continued to solidify our loyalty to this place.

Our group of 5 was a mix of locals and out-of-towners - we were there for a work dinner. The guys really enjoyed what appeared to be a smoky-peach-bourbon cocktail (smelled AMAZING!) and there was a decent selection of local craft beer for the rest of us. We ordered some starters for the table: corn bread, crab corn fritters, deviled eggs, crab queso. The consensus: everyone was underwhelmed (with the exception of the cornbread). The fritters were the biggest disappointment - I expected them to be light and fluffy and crispy (if you've ever had the ones at Harvest, these are the kind I'm talking about...) but they were dense and rather bland. The flavor-saving-grace here was, what I believe were roasted red pepper/honey mustard dipping sauces. Queso was good, but seemed bland/needed more salt (and I don't normally add salt to anything, so...) Deviled eggs were just, ok. Like I said, just underwhelming. For entrees - 3 guests had the chicken and said it was great (looked excellent w/ the waffles & biscuits). The other two of us had the scallops, which were great quality and cooked perfectly (tender yet crispy), but, unlike the starters, far to salty. The service was excellent! Our server was very friendly, knowledgeable and made recommendations. Very nice atmosphere as well. Maybe just some tweaks - turning it up a notch. Some great ideas, just seemed blah on the execution. But those smoked drinks... smelled like heaven.

Very little value for the $. Not what I would expect for the price. Chicken was dry and sides were cold. On the bright side they had a very good bourbon selection.

A very nice evening out with elevated Southern food and yummy inventive cocktails. We had lobster rolls even though it was not on the dinner menu. One dish had two and a side so it was super filling. The service was energetic and convivial.

My bridesmaids and I came for brunch before shopping for bridesmaids dresses. I’ve been for brunch and dinner before, but the service this time was outstanding! I forget our waitress’s name, but she was absolutely amazing. She was so personable, and made our experience that day. She suggested mimosas for all of us that day, and kept them coming. She was on top of filling our drinks, ensuring we had everything we needed, but being there only when we needed her. I will be back for the food, and if I have her as my waitress again!

We went for brunch to celebrate a week of marriage! The staff was absolutely wonderful and made great recommendations and made sure we celebrated to the fullest! This place is a must for brunch- the flavors in each menu item was out of this world.

The food was excellent and obviously carefully prepared. I appreciated it all... except, in a few instances, the pepper was so excessive that it rendered the honey and jambalaya too hot to enjoy.

The service was very warm, kind and efficient: John who worked the bar especially and Josh who joined the team later in our meal.

The cocktails were delicious and presented in an attractive way.

It was a great brunch.
