Good food in a pleasant place

Hennen's is my favorite restaurant in town. I like especially the Ahi tuna and the beignets (dessert!).

I had the ribeye, and my fiancé had the shrimp and grits...her favorite. Both were excellent. For an appetizer we had the crabcakes, which also were delicious. The service was impeccable, and the atmosphere was very nice. Hennen's had been our favorite restaurant in Chattanooga, but we had an unpleasant experience on the last visit. After management reached out to... More

My wife and I made a last minute decision to go to Hennen's on a Saturday night without a reservation. When we arrived it was about 90 minutes for a table. Fortunately, we stepped into the bar and someone had just got up from one of those tables so we sat down immediately and had dinner. Steaks are the best... More

I love this place. As someone that travels for a living you would think it is easy to find a place to consistently get a good steak. That is usually never the case,,but Hennen's gets it right every time. The service was excellent as always (thanks Michelle) the drinks are perfect. It is my favorite place in Chattanooga to eat....

I was not greeted as I should at the hostess desk... Was sitted quickly. I was not told about today's soup, or any specials being offered. I think the wine list is much longer then the menu. When my water was brought the glass had what looked like a smeared booger on it.. Ewww I ordered stuffed chicken with potatoes...... More

We had a pleasant dinner for 6 with a sweet waitress who tried hard and could not be faulted for being young and inexperienced, but it is silly to ask a youngster to remember a menu of things that she has never heard of and be professional. This restaurant is good but it pretends to be something it is not--fine... More

We love trying new steak houses and Hennen's did not disappoint. Our server, Eugene, was knowledgable, attentive and sociable. I enjoy my steak cooked Pittsburgh rare and it was perfection. The sides were also well prepared (very tasted wilted spinach) and the poached shrimp cocktail was good but could have been a bit more chilled. All in all it was... More
