We visited Hannas to celebrate our 45th Anniversary and were somewhat taken back by the atmosphere when we walked through the door. Our hopes for a quiet, romantic dinner were dashed by the loud and obnoxious environment. Sitting across from each other at a table for two, it was impossible to carry on the simplest of conversations. Our chopped salad... More

Hannah's has a great environment with recently expanded outside seating. Very comfortable and warm environment. Great service and the chefs are willing to accomodate any request I've ever made. They have changed their menu a few times but I always ask for the "boardwalk fries." Even though they are no longer on the menu, the chef always makes them. Terrific... More

It was a nice surprise to find a restaurant that offered both a stylish atmosphere and great diner and bar menu. Busy place so make sure you make a reservation - even during the week. We sat outside on the front patio, which was comfortable and nice on a beautiful Fall night. One thing of note, if you are sitting... More

We know we can depend on Hanna's for a great meal and friendly, competent staff. Dave takes great pride in his operation and is shows. Terrific wine list and the skirt steak is fantastic, Follow it up with the famous Butter Cake and you will feel like you have died and gone to heaven!

High level of attentive service, tasteful décor, good food, good wine list. Warm greeting at the door. Food is offered in the bar and the dining room, and note that this gem is high-energy noisy. The sound of success and happy diners. WYATT and KEVIN took care of us, and they obviously read our preferences on OpenTable reservations. Wyatt noted... More

Dave Hanna always makes you feel like part of the family, The food and service is great. Wine corkage policy can't be beat. Great place for any special occasion or just a nice place to go.

Always a great place to go for a special dinner. Make reservations, it's crowded every night of the week! My husband loves the beef stroganoff. I've never been disappointed with anything there. The service is always friendly.

We met some friends at the new house they just purchased. We decided to walk the 1/4 mile to Hanna's. We went early (about 5:30 on a Sunday) and were able to get a table for four quickly. This was just before Labor Day and it was hot enough out that the outdoor seating was not being used. Our server... More

Fabulous food, attentive and friendly service, creativity and variety in what's offered--this was our first time at Hanna's, but we'll be back. He had the special Chilean seabass on puree of Yukon gold potatoes--amazing. I had the filet mignon with sides of mushrooms and onions--one of the best steaks I've ever had! The broccolini it came with was the only... More

I went here for a business dinner with some colleagues. The server was delightful and attentive. The wine list was decent but nothing to get too excited about. The decor was clean and contemporary and the ambiance was lively. I ordered the salmon because the fish is supposed to be flown in fresh daily. I was told that the fish... More
