We chose this restaurant for a birthday celebration. The blue crabs were available & perfectly prepared. The seafood sampler & lump crab cake dinners were popular with our group. Family style salad & chicken noodle soup, and the most delicious homemade bread was included with our meals. The... read more

The sound echoes from everywhere and a nice conversation is not possible. Bread was delicious fresh and hot. Chicken noodle soup was plain and nothing at all special. Salad was a bottles Italian dressing. Fresh fries appeared to be from frozen. Fish was crispy and very nice. But from the price I had much higher expectations. They need a few... More

We stopped on the way home from a family vacation. We arrived at 5:10. We ordered a burger and fries, and a chicken breast with onion rings. It didn't seem to be a time consuming order, since the restaurant specializes in chicken. Our waitress promptly disappeared. At 5:40, our uninterested waitress announced that it would be a few minutes more.... More

Great restaurant and service. Several places in the area close before 8 o'clock. The Hen House was open until 9 o'clock. We were road weary and hungry.

Worked in the area for 3 weeks and visited the Hen House about 4 or maybe 5 times. Good enough we kept going back. The ribs were very good and I ordered them each time. The service is slow. Always had a different waitress, and each one the same. They don't come around much, and there was always something we... More

The Hen House is a big, open, somewhat noisy restaurant. Their main dishes are crab and chicken. The portions are a good size and well prepared. The sides are included in the meal. The fried chicken is not oily. The wait staff are mostly college age and very friendly. Very reasonably priced wine / beer (on tap). This isn't fine... More

Especially good: the crab soup and fried oysters. Two members of our party ordered the ravioli and said it was good. There were 6 of us and I was surprised to see the salad was served in one big bowl for all of us. I prefer to have my own individual serving. This restaurant is off the beaten path but... More

We decided to go out of our way & try the hen house for dinner. Overall, we felt the food was bland, needed something more. I ordered the crab ravioli, unbeknownst to me it was served with not only a salad but also a small bowl of chicken noodle soup. The soup needed some flavoring, the salad was your typical... More

A little pricy for the location, but mostly worth it! The Seafood Sampler is three days worth of meals for me, and GREAT! The atmosphere is wonderful, the service is great. In warm weather you can sit on the outside deck (more like a porch): don't hesitate.

Customer service has alot to be desired here. Attempted to call an order take out and they said they were too busy to take my order. The whole time the man was argumentative and rude on the phone he could have been taking my order. The next lady I spoke with even ruder.. Told me to come and order it... More
