Had a business dinner here. It was a great spot. The menu offers a good variety of appetizers and main courses. The service was attentive. I had the prime rib, which was just OK. My colleagues all had steak and they all enjoyed them. Make sure you try the pear and blue cheese appetizer...you won't be disappointed.

Visited Chattanooga for anniversary weekend. Great place for date night. Not rushed. We were finished with our appetizers before our main dinner order was taken, which I liked as food wasn't being piled on your table and gave you time to enjoy each course. We each had steaks. NY strip was cooked to order med-rare, crisp crust, nicely seasoned same... More

We had a wonderful, quiet dinner at Hennens while we were in Chattanooga. My husband's filet was incredible and my scallops were pretty good too. Service was very attentive. Thank you!

We got into town for the evening, heard of Hennen's, made a reservation, and were delighted with the food and the service. We would go to Hennen's again.

My husband and I had a reservation here on Christmas eve. The entire experience was amazing. We both ordered the filet. They were some of the best that we have had and they were cooked to perfection. The chef had a couple of special desserts for the evening. We each had one and they were both delicious. Our server was... More

Came here with the entire family to eat and had a reservation upfront. We were greeted nicely and immediatly got a table with a view to the aquarium. Nicely decorated restaurant with a huge wine cellar and a very casual but also elegant atmosphere. There is also a big bar in the back of the restaurant with nice atmosphere as... More

I ate here on Saturday evening, January 10th. It was a date night with my wife. Let me say that the ambiance and atmosphere of Hennen's is excellent. It is a very nice place and I like the decor. The problems I have are with the service AND the food. Our server was a nice enough young lady, but I'm... More

Always enjoy going to Hennen's for an important business dinner or special event. I think the steaks are the best in Chattanooga. Recently had a business meeting in the separate dining room. The food as always was great. There was a minimum charge for the separate room which made the tab pretty high.

I went to Hennen's for a business lunch and it was fantastic. It's in a great location in downtown Chattanooga right near the water and the aquarium. There is a parking garage right behind the place, and they will validate your parking so it's free. The inside is beautiful and the food was delicious. It's locally owned and you can... More
