Exclusive but Reasonable

We were treated to lunch by our investment advisor last week at Hennen's. This was our first visit SINCE we had heard it was very expensive but good. Wrong and right. It was delicious but most reasonable. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the food was great as was the service. We definitely will return.

I've been to Hennen's twice for work dinners. It's definitely one of Chattanooga's nicest restaurants. Both times, I've gotten the pan roasted duck with roasted sweet potatoes and spinach. I had never tried duck, but I'm glad I did. It's unlike any other meat. It's ordered rare to well, like steak is. The waiter recommended medium, and I liked it.... More

We stopped here for a late lunch and it was divine. I had a shaved prime rib sandwich that was out of this world. My wife had a salad with poached shrimp that was unusual and outstanding. Service was great as well. I'd highly recommend this place for lunch or dinner.

My husband and I were in Chattanooga for business and ate at Hennen's last night. It was Great! We had the Marlin (never had Marlin but will certainly have it again) appetizer special, caesar salad, lobster bisque and the Halibut special. Everything was cooked to perfection and had great flavor. Our waitress, Tarah, was a delight, was very knowledgeable about... More

Menu on trip advisor is outdated both in terms of pricing and selection. Got a coupon at the nearby hotel for a free appetizer, but it was good only for half order of calamari. Portions are very small. One of the two pieces of braised beef short ribs was 100 percent fat.

The food, wine, and service were all wonderful. It is a great special occasion place. We had the steak. No complaints. Even the parking was not a problem.

If being packed on a Monday is any indication this place is a hit! We had a business meeting there last night and to a person (all 8 of us) we were very happy. The meals were delicious. Our server (teacher by / server by night) was one of the best I have had in years. Definitely worth a visit!

Wife and I decided to try Hennen's again as we always have had good food and service here. Seated very quickly and server arrived promptly. One of the specials was blue marlin which I ha never eaten before so I had to have it. Wife went with a red wine beef stew and salad. We had the house salad with... More

This is one of our top spots in our local community and we are there for dinner probably once a month. The bar is friendly and well appointed with bar seating as well as café tables and booths. The restaurant has a nice menu and all of the dishes are delicious. Special attention should be given to the scallops, shrimp... More

Hubs had a filet which was quite tasty. I ordered French onion soup which was not. Croutons so hard I couldn't bite through and flavor like no soup i've ever had. My clam cakes were tasty. Our friend's calamari was cold. Just not my favorite. Would stick with steak if we returned.
