the decor was fun & the server had a lot of personality. the breakfast menu sounded great but the actual food was only so-so. I couldn't even finish the "hen fries" which sounded really delicious i the description. The bakery case looked good but, alas, we didn't sample any of the selections

I was in Frostburg on a business trip with two other colleagues. All three of us had an excellent meal at the Hen House. Each of us had something different: ribs, shrimp, and ravioli. I would recommend this restaurant and will return the next time I am in the area. Service was excellent. Restaurant had a nice size crowd for... More

My family ate here after reading reviews of the restaurant when we were planning our week-end trip to the area. We had ribs, and Barbequed chicken; both were delicious. The bread , soup, salad and vegetables were fresh and servings were plentiful. We found the service to be good and the atmosphere was wonderful. It is nice to find a... More

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
