    Hennen’s was absolutely amazing! I had the calamari and rib eye steak. I like my steak cooked medium and it was perfect. It had just enough red in the center of the steak.

    We really enjoyed our dinner at Hennan’s! Steaks were cooked to perfection. We all ordered different sides so we could sample, all were excellent. I especially enjoyed the asparagus risotto and the mushrooms! I don’t know how one simple wedge salad can be better than another, but it was. One of the best I’ve had. Service was great, Courtney was a pleasure and helped us with an excellent wine choice. And to top it all off, everything was very reasonably priced as compared to other steak places and chop houses nearby. Highly recommend.

    One steak was cooked to well down when it was ordered medium and another was cooked medium to medium well when ordered medium rare. Other than that the food was delicious and the service was great. It took quite a while to get a drink though.

    The dinner and service were excellent as always. We dine there regularly. There are two requests we would like to make. Would the chef consider adding chimichurri to the menu? It would add greatly to our steaks. Also, PLEASE BRING BACK THE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES! We can’t live without them!

    The food and service is everything but I was a little bummed that they don’t do anything special for birthdays. We were out celebrating my husband’s birthday and when you reserve your table they ask if you’re celebrating anything special. I don’t see why they feel the need to ask if they don’t do anything special to recognize what you’re celebrating. I mean no free glass of wine, no dessert, a birthday song…just nothing at all. This won’t stop my from eating here but I won’t be back on any special occasions

    Very nice restaurant with very nice atmosphere and excellent service. However the food was good but not outstanding. My wife’s filet was just OK and my beef short ribs were good. Cheesecake seemed like leftover from Valentines Day.

    Our first time dining here. I got the BLT wedge salad & the Petite filet Oscar. My husband got the Caesar salad with Shrimp & Grits. All was delicious! We cleaned our plates. Our server was Paul. He was a delight. We had a lovely dining experience & will go again.

    My boyfriend and I made a reservation here during our Valentine’s weekend trip to Chattanooga. We wanted a nice place that wasn’t too fancy, and Hennen’s was the best place for that. The ambience was wonderful where it felt like a very nice, intimate date night but we didn’t feel like we had to be dressed to the 9s. Just a nice “Sunday’s Best” kind of place. We ordered drinks, appetizers, main courses, and dessert, and every single thing was absolutely amazing. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. Melt in your mouth tender. Quite possibly the best steak I’ve ever had, especially with the sautéed mushrooms on top! Both of our appetizers (lobster bisque and bruschetta) and sides (lemon herb asparagus and Tillamook macaroni and cheese) were also amazing. Dessert (warm chocolate cake and cinnamon sugar donuts) was heavenly. Drinks were great. Service was spectacular. Our waiter was kind and welcoming, and we were so impressed with how quickly everything came out. Overall, our experience could not have been better. We hadn’t even left the restaurant before we talked about coming back for another visit. Thank you, Hennen’s, for being a great place!

You can tell there are regulars who dine there and the staff all make a point to greet customers that regularly come back. It was a very relaxed and classy atmosphere that is perfect to celebrate any occasion! The food was divine and my husband and I will make it a point to come back soon.

    The food was very good — my steak was perfectly cooked…and that risotto — yum! The best part was the service. Ruth was lovely, attentive, and so welcoming. We got to meet “the” Paul that I had seen reviews about…He stopped by our table to visit a bit too :) All in all, a really nice time and we felt valued. Thank you!

    Good location next to aquarium. Friendly service but a little slow. 1 hour we had salad and drink. Meal shortly after. So dinner was 2 hours. Food was very good. I ordered short ribs and there was more fat than meat. Would not order again. Wife had steak and it was great. Sides where great. $100 dollar meal. I don't think it is worth that.

    Great meal with friends. It was a bit noisier than usual though, especially as we were seated near the pass through to the bar. Our dinner was cooked perfectly but took almost 45 minutes to come out. That being said, I do love Hennen’s and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a nice steak dinner.

    Excellent selection with options for meat and seafood lovers. Four of us dining rated different entrees highly on taste and presentation. Server was knowledgeable and friendly. No rush as we savored drinks and appetizers prior to main course or as we continued to visit after dinner. Noise level was low, allowing easy conversation.
