The Hen House has great food, but is slightly pricey compared to other local restaurants. You cant beat sitting on the deck in the summer for crabs!

My fiance and I had selected this as our wedding venue. We went in October 2013 and had spoken to the man that I believe is the owner. We explained to him that we are getting married in August of 2014 and what we wanted. We wanted to put money down and he wouldn't allow us; he said they don't... More

I've been to the Hen House a few times with my family, and have never been disappointed. The servings are generous, and the steamed crabs are surprisingly excellent for a restaurant in western MD. The kids menu is decent too. I'll be back!

From the moment you pull in until your seated everything is clean and in order. We were seated promptly and greeted by our waitress. We were watched over but not that she was intrusive. Drinks were quickly brought to the table, orders placed and warm fresh bread appeared. The soup was outstanding. The salads well made. And the meals arrived... More

The salad, chicken soup, and home made white bread will thrill children and people older then 80. But, if you crave really good classic fried chicken, come here and indulge. Get the dark meat leg and thigh or the white breast if you are a white meat person. Get slaw and fries. If you want fancier fine dining continue on... More

Chicken noodle soup was very good and my shrimp was large and flavorful. However, unless you were getting drinks from the bar, slowwwww service. And while their dining room appears spacious with its vaulted ceilings, the sound carries so as to make conversation at your table difficult.

We stopped here on our way home from frostburg.. Best chicken I ever ate anywhere! Very very good food. A little pricy but you definitely don't leave hungry. We will be back!
