I read the reviews, I knoticed a commond trend. The people who had a negative review had personal issues. My husband and I came to Hennen's for our anniversary dinner, it was impeccable service and food. There were no screaming kids and no noise! Also a added feature. This location has a great view. The only thing I did not... More

We walked from the river in search of Hennen's per a recommendation from a friend, and were welcomed upon entering. We put our names in, and waited at the bar, where we were greeted with a friendly smile and eagerness to serve. Our drinks were made to order, and very tasty and refreshing. I got the pomegranate martini, wanted something... More

On your next visit to Chattanooga, don't pass up on a chance to dine at Hennen's. I had a business lunch meeting and this was the perfect place with a superb location. The staff was extremely professional and knew the menu and what to recommend. I viewed an abundance of wines but didn't have time to partake. I would recommend... More

Service was very attentive, but not pushy. The food was very good and was suggested by two locals we asked where to get a good steak including one that worked for a hotel with a restaurant. While the food was good I have had better steaks so I cannot truthfully say it was one of the best meals ever. The... More

From the atmosphere and quality of food most would consider this a very upscale restaurant with very high prices, the $$$$ type. such is not the case with Hennen's. Although mostly known for their wine selection I think that they should also be known for their "wet aged" beef. Great food and service.

We were in Chattanooga on our wedding anniversary because my husband had business and I was going to visit with a friend. Got into our hotel at dinner time and they gave us a free appetizer voucher for calamari or shrimp so we thought we would try it. Excellent from start to finish. We ordered chicken because we had beef... More

Hennen's is a downtown tradition in Chattanooga and absolutely the best fine dining experience among a wealth of good restaurants in the Scenic City. The atmosphere is upscale but not pretentious and you can go without a tie with no worries. The service is impeccable and the food simply outstanding. Prices are high but still a good value for what... More
