I have ate at this restaurant for the past 20 years. Is it under new management? The waiter was poorly trained, the prices were up, the poetions smaller and the place was empty! The battered fish and shrimp were out of a box. The beer was flat and sour indicating tap lines were not cleaned for a long time. We... More

Usually the food is plentiful and very good but this time most of it looked as if it were frozen out if a box . Very small portion. Service was slow. We were not told of the specials so ordered a seafood platter. They didn't have any local beer and what we did order was flat and old. 1choice of... More

My expectation was that it would be pretty good, but it was a solid very good. They were very busy and there was a wedding at the same time. However, the service was excellent. I tasted everything and I was impressed. Crab cake excellent, fish and chips, wings, and the steak were all very good. Only downfall, French fries and... More

I last dined at the Hen House in 1989 when I lived in Frostburg. Then had steamed crabs, good steamed crabs that blew my mind, being 300 miles from salt water. The old farm house is now gone, or maybe just abandoned. In its place is a new building, much larger, with all the comforts, including a very attentive wait... More

Try the fried chicken and the chicken noodle soup! Youn know how hard it is to find excellent fired chicken? Well you just found it. Great family style soup and salad. The other menu items are great too, but I always have to order the chicken. This is a nice, reasonably priced restaurant that takes reservations and large parties. Wait... More

I held our wrestling Banquet there, the food was very good, service was top notch, the inside of the restaurant was very clean and very well taken care of . It can be a bit pricey but I would highly recommend this restaurant you can also sit up to the bar and enjoy a cold adult beverage.

Wow! If this place is number five in Frostburg, I can't even imagine what numbers one through four are like! I just had the best fried chicken of my life. Not only was the batter slightly sweet and perfectly crispy, but the chicken itself was so moist and tasty. Based on a Trip Adviser review, I got the chicken noodle... More

We had dinner during a chicken and fish special. The food was fairly standard. The ratio of fries to other items on the plate was a bit much. Over half the plate was fries. I might try another dish, but sadly it wasn't anything to write home about.

The great food has gone down to "good food" within the last few years. However their homemade chicken noodle soup Never fails. It's homemade, delicious and I always get it no matter what else I order. The crabs they serve are okay. The restaurant is large. Has a semi fancy appeal and is family friendly, couple friendly and Business friendly.... More
