“Great for a special night out”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

Was in the area and looking for a great place to meet up with relatives who live in the area. We suggested this because my husband wanted steak and it was close enough to the hotel. What a great place! The staff is attentive without being all over you, they have great suggestions for the wine, how you should have things prepared and daily specials.
The sides were delicious, the steak was perfect and the service was great. We stayed for quite awhile since we were visiting. We had appetizers, then the meal, some rest, some wine, a little dessert and then more wine, and a little coffee. We were there for over 2 hours, and not once did we feel rushed or hurried along by the staff. Instead she asked if we would like refills, anything else etc. Our guests never got to see the check as we prearranged payment with the waitress. Great experience! Would recommend this to anyone who has a nice dinner in mind. Yes is can be a little on the expensive side, but it's not something you do everyday, and it is not much more than any other typical steakhouse. Treat yourself.

“Relax and Enjoy a Great Dining Experience!”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

We found Hennen's easily in downtown Chattanooga, a block away from the Aquarium. There is parallel parking on the street, also in a lot across the street or an enclosed parking garage right around the corner from the restaurant entrance ( the attentive wait staff gladly validated our parking stub). Our dinner began with lightly seared crab cakes (savory and full of crab) served on bed of crisp greens, lightly dressed in chili aoili with tomato chutney garnish. But my hubby had the most awesome "Chef's Special" appetizer: Braised pork belly nestled in a mound of creamy rice and finely sliced verts with an astonishingly delicious and not too sweet- Maple honey drizzle. One of those dishes you wanted to have had 3 more of ....it was THAT good!
Gus our very jovial waiter directed us to the exceptional 10 oz house filet mignon ( along with borsin topper) and the Chef' Entree evening special: Pan seared flounder presented on a creamy bed of tender carrots, potatoes and celery, garnished with fresh mussels. Delectable! Forks were humming on their journeys between plates. The steak was paired with a simple Caesar salad (unremarkable dressing, our only regret of the meal) and a perfect Manhattan. Sea salt was available on request. To finish off this excellent meal we "sweet hearted" a warm chocolate cake with a shore of hilly vanilla bean ice cream topped
with a ripe fanned strawberry garnish.
For an above average dining experience, excellent ambiance (appropriate Baby Boomer Lighting to read a menu), a diverse wine list and first class service, enjoy an unhurried evening at Henne's!

Will go again but not allow waiter Paul to wait on us. Meal for four$ 171. Tip was left by my boss who paid for meal. Waiter confronted us outside restroom and brow beat us until my husband gave him. $40 more. He knew my husband had several drinks so watch out for waiter Paul. I am currently trying to contact mgr.

“Great food, great service”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

Food was great. Servers were attentive but not annoyingly so. (Remembered me when I came the 2nd time.) Hotel gives you a coupon for free shrimp cocktail.

“Goooood Food, Great Service”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

Food was wonderfully prepared and the service was excellent. Our server knew the menu and wines and made excellent recommendations.

Interior was fine but not stuffy. Noise level was low and conversation easy to enjoy at our table. A good place for business luncheon or dinner.
