Good food and service

Don't expect "interesting" dishes, but what's available is very good. A bit off the "path" but worth the effort.

I have eaten here a few times in the past year and I must say, I have yet to find a place with better service. The food is average for the area, but what keeps us coming back is the way we are treated. I always try to request T.J or her daughter Erica if they are working. They are... More

I used to LOVEEE this place. Awesome chicken, sandwiches, seafood, soup and overall atmosphere. Now whenever I go, it's a different feeling there. The staff is always sort of annoyed that they have to wait on you or do their jobs, and the food just isn't the same. Not sure if the prices have increased, but now, they are super... More

Excellent place to eat, plenty of setting, service is excellent. Food is off the charts. Weekend seafood buffet is unbelievable, all you can eat. Steaks the best in area. If you want an enjoyable meal don't pass on Hen House

Very clean and nicely decorated. Food was excellent. Served hot and by very attentive wait staff. This was the spot we were looking for in our travels in Western Maryland.

Fantastic food in a country setting. We were seated on the porch, which we loved. I ordered the fish dinner, which was light and tender - absolutely delicious, as was the fried chicken my husband ordered. Highly recommend it!

The sound echoes from everywhere and a nice conversation is not possible. Bread was delicious fresh and hot. Chicken noodle soup was plain and nothing at all special. Salad was a bottles Italian dressing. Fresh fries appeared to be from frozen. Fish was crispy and very nice. But from the price I had much higher expectations. They need a few... More

We stopped on the way home from a family vacation. We arrived at 5:10. We ordered a burger and fries, and a chicken breast with onion rings. It didn't seem to be a time consuming order, since the restaurant specializes in chicken. Our waitress promptly disappeared. At 5:40, our uninterested waitress announced that it would be a few minutes more.... More

We chose this restaurant for a birthday celebration. The blue crabs were available & perfectly prepared. The seafood sampler & lump crab cake dinners were popular with our group. Family style salad & chicken noodle soup, and the most delicious homemade bread was included with our meals. The quality of our meals was very good as was the service. Tip:... More

Great restaurant and service. Several places in the area close before 8 o'clock. The Hen House was open until 9 o'clock. We were road weary and hungry.
