Sam was our server and she rolled off the great sounding seafood dishes but as a visitor I asked if this was a steak place and she smiled and said "our steaks are outstanding." I had the ribeye and my friend had the filet. I could not even finish my steak and his melted like butter in his mouth. Expensive... More

I love this place. Everything was great from the crab cakes and green beans to my toddler's grilled cheese sandwich! The hostess was friendly, the waiter was friendly and attentive and the food was fantastic...need I say more.

My family and I arrived fairly under dressed during their rush. We had a stroller with a sleeping two year old and our teenage son. This is not generally a good combination for a fine dining restaurant. We put our name in and were told 2 hours. We decided to grab a drink from the bar and at least let... More

Ate here with a group of about 20 on a business trip, on a Tuesday night. Unfortunately, our gathering was rather impromptu, so we did not make a reservation and the restaurant was already very busy when we arrived at about 6:45. We decided to break into a couple of smaller groups so that seating would be quicker, but we... More

Wow, just wonderful. We were told we would have a 2 hour wait to get a table during prom season (which is understabdable but we were ignorant to the fact since we live in Atlanta), or we could sit at the bar with a 2 year old (a no-go), and have had done enough walking that day so we patiently...

Typical with any restaurant near a tourist attraction - this place had great service and a fantastic menu of options, but the food was very pricey. My grilled chicken sandwich was $9.50 and my son got the Pan Seared Ahi Tuna which came with nothing but some cucumber and onion slices - very few pieces of the tuna - and... More

Hennen's is absolutely fabulous. The salmon was cooked perfectly, the atmosphere is romantic yet modern charm, and the wine and drink menu is excellent.

Sophisticated and metropolitan restaurant with a sleek bar area and big city feel. We ate at Hennen's for a business meal with about 20 others, had reserved a private dining room, we had four very attentive and friendly waitstaff who were kept busy with drink and bar refills. Since we had a small limited menu to choose from, remember business... More

On the second day of a long weekend 4 of us went to Hennens for dinner. After a slight delay in being seated at our reservation time everything else went perfectly. Good pours on the drinks. The Carpachio and cheese board were perfect and not a flaw in the Duck, Shrimp and Grits, Grouper or desserts could be found. Chattanooga... More

The wife and I enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner last night. Everything was just right from the calamari appetizer to the baby spinach salad to the best ever bread pudding we had a fabulous experience and the service of Brittany K. was exceptional. Don't miss this special dining experience.
