Definitely avoid this place on a high traffic day (Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc...). They will pack you in a huge room that doesn't transfer sound very well - so you will hear everything and will leave with a huge headache. If you do go, you will find that the prices are very high (for frozen food - it isn't... More

My husband ate here 35 yrs ago. I guess original place burned down. Beautiful restaurant and setting. A fancier place for the area. It was pricey for what we got. But not a lot of options in the area. We ate as we passed thru the area. It was tricky to find as our gps kept sending is to someone's... More

We were pretty hungry and in Frostburg so we decided to check out this place. In a place with “Hen” in the name you go with the chicken, right? I got the chicken platter but started with the Cream of Crab which a prior reviewer had mentioned. It was pretty good. We worked our way through two bread baskets, so... More

I stayed for one night in Frostburg for business and wanted something other than the Burger King that was located next to the hotel where I was staying. After checking on line for restaurants in the area and reading the lukewarm reviews, I called the Hen House Restaurant and placed an order for pick-up. The young lady who took my... More

When asked for a recommendation the waitress replied "it must all be good because of their reputation" This implied to me that she had never eaten there. The chicken was good, but the chicken noodle soup was not. The atmosphere was sort of cafeteria style since they have a large seating capacity with an open architecture.

I went to this restaurant based on the recommendation of the hotel I was staying at, and about 12 other people that I talked to in the area. I was told that there steaks were fantastic, but I was there for the chicken. They offer chicken fried or with their own bbq sauce, which I had. The chicken was a... More

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!
