Very good seafood and steaks. We ate here during Riverbend and the service was excellent.

“Good Seared Scallops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2009

I took a friend to Hennen's for lunch. I had the house salad with seared scallops. They were the best scallops I've had in years. Everything was fresh and very attractively served. My friend had the primerib and mashed potatoes - she said hers was very good. I like all the dark shiny wood and thought it was decorated very nicely. We really enjoyed the meal. Don't forget to get your parking ticket stamped.

“Wonderful meal for special occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2009

We chose this restaurant for a dinner celebrating a graduation, and all 6 family members were very happy with the service and meal. It is expensive- check out their menu online and you will see the prices. We ordered steaks, fish, and one pasta dish. The steaks and fish were cooked perfectly. Parking is available in the garage attached to the building and the restaurant reimburses the cost. The location is across the street from the aquarium.

“Good Food - Lousy Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2009

I usually make a rule not to trust people with broken or missing teeth... but the restuarant was busy so I settled for the waiter I was given. Mistake! I had to ask several times for things he volunteered to bring and never did... more water, bread, horse raddish etc. I tried to give the guy a break but then 2 tables next to me with the same waiter soon had the owner table side to hear complaints they too had. Overall, the food was good but lousy service can ruin an experience and cause a 1st time customer, like me, to never return.

“great steak house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2009

One of the best dishes I have eaten at Hennen's was their lamb chops-just superb! My favorite thing is the Lobster Bisque-it is literally to die for...one of the best...they only make it twice a week. My hats off to the Pastry Chef as the desserts have always been top of the line. I had a cream brule one night which was sinful. This is a nice upscale place for treating yourself or special occasions.
