We went for an all you can eat crab night and our waiter ended up going on break and ignoring us the whole time even though I tried to get his attention since the crab legs were cold. He finally showed up to drop off the check and I had to get the bartender to settle the bill since apparently... More

We stopped for a drink after a movie and decided to have dinner while we were here. This place is a bar/restaurant but they have an excellent selection on their menu. We ordered a couple suggested menu items and were very pleased with both the service and the taste of our order. The waitress was very friendly and made us... More

Get the best food and drinks here. Friendly staff and lively clientele. Guinness on tap. Good bar menu. Separate dining area available. Definitely a return spot for locals.

We live close by, so dining at Hennessy's Restaurant is convenient. However, it's the food that brings us back. Looking forward to the next queen's cut prime rib or bowl of delicious snapper soup is what lures us. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the margaritas aren't bad either. If you're a beer drinker, they always have a good... More

The food here is excellent. Service is good; atmosphere has a nice pub/restaurant feel; menu is varied; the filet is always cooked to perfection and melts in your mouth; the peppers and bread you get to munch on while waiting for your meal is a nice touch. Oh and the drinks are good also.

Hennessy's very generously sent me a postcard on my birthday, offering $10 off my meal. My husband, Jack, and I went, and enjoyed a quiet dinner there. My meal was two fried oysters, with a scoop of crab imperial on top, and Jack had marinated London broil. They have a small selection of beers on tap, as well as bottled... More

I used to live closer to this area and dine here frequently. My Husband and I adored this place. Nice meals and reasonable prices. OK service too. The chef frequently had inspired and creative specials on the Dinner menu. Now, the last few times we dined at Hennessy's the meals were not particularly good, lots of undercooked food or messy...
