Excellent Steak

I had the 16 oz rib-eye (horseradish crusted) and sauteed broccolini and garlic. I ordered med rare but it was more like rare. It could have used another 15 sec on the grill. (So be specific when you order.) We dined on the outside patio (downtown by the river) and its really nice. little... read more

My wife and I went on a Thursday night to celebrate our anniversary. Our Delmonico steaks were incredible and the service was awesome! Our waiter kept our drinks full, and we literally were in and out in 35 minutes. The atmosphere made me think their prices were going to be expensive, but the prices were actually what you would pay... More

My first time dining in this area but what a great find. Duck breast for me and a Delmonico rib eye for her. Both prepared perfectly. One order of a better version of creme brulee then I've had in a while to finish off the evening. Great service tied it all together. I will be back.

Located near the Aquarium right across from the IMax. Best ribeye in Chattanooga. Also love the lobster bisque. They have a bar area and nice seating. They also have a room in the back for larger parties. They have excellent staff.

I admit that I have only eaten at Hennens. Few times, but it clearly enjoys the well deserved reputation of the best upscale restaurant in Chttanooga. The steaks are phenomenal!

Shrimp and grits were good, but not the most creative. Dining partner had fish special, and it was very good. Reasonable wine selection with some good values. Staff was very attentive and had all seemed to have a great attitude on a busy, rainy Friday evening.

Hennen's has quickly become a new favorite! Make sure to be hungry when you get here as each course offers its own delights. The poached pear and blue cheese flatbread sounds like an unlikely pairing, but in works together in a most excellent way. The house filet mignon was fork tender and delicious. And the creme brûlée was nothing short... More

We were looking for a place that opened early and was open on Sunday so we could go before a show at Memorial Auditorium. We saw that Hennen's had 3 diamonds with AAA so we went. Our dinner was very good. Salads to start that were crisp and fresh with good dressing. We both had chicken and it was also... More

Awesome atmosphere, service, and food. Would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to friend. Food is outstanding and so is the service. Make a reservation or go early so you can get a seat!

My wife and I had dinner at Hennens. One word describes our evening - OUTSTANDING. The service from our waiter, Paul, was attentive, knowledgeable, and personable. We both ordered medium rare 45-day aged filet mignon with 2 pan seared scallops on the side. Perfection. She had green beans and I had the house special zuccini, yellow squash & tomato. We... More
