“Great atmosphere, food, and service”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We've eaten at a lot more expensive steak houses, but none better. We loved the warm atmosphere, rounded booth, and the food. We both had steaks that were really excellent. I loved the stone ground grits as a change of pace for a side. Our server suggested the cheesecake if we liked a real New York style. I can rarely pass up a good cheesecake and this was really one of the best I ever had. It was a lovely, relaxing, and romantic evening.

“Hennen's a great choice for couples or business”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Located in downtown Chattanooga, Hennen's is contemporary steakhouse that is works well for both business entertaining and couples. Lot's of wood, soft lighting, and a large exposed wine cellar give Hennen's a chic look. It was busy on a Wednesday night, but the decor has enough soft surfaces that it never got too loud. Service was excellent, and while they specialize in steaks, there are plenty of other options to choose from. Overall the food was very good, creative but not so far out as to turn off comfort food fans, and steaks as you might imagine are some of the best I have tasted (Actually I had chicken breast with risotto, highly recommended). One reviewer noted that the food is a little over salted, and I would agree. I noticed this on both the chicken, beef and risotto. While still very tasty, they can easily dial it back. Regardless, for a small city that has a lot of good restaurants, Hennen's is a top choice.

“Awesome place to eat.”
Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I went to Chattanooga for our third wedding anniversary trip. I was able to make reservations to eat at Hennen's two weeks ago. We immediately noticed that Hennen's was a great place for a romantic dinner. Our server was David and he did an outstanding job. We started off with salmon dip and it was great. We then had prime rib with mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was all great, with the prime rib and asparagus really standing out. We finished our meal with bread pudding, which was outstanding. David really made the meal special with his service and noted that he really loved his job. My wife and I would really recommend Hennen's to anyone visiting Chattanooga for fine food, service, and atmosphere.

“Waste of $100 and not kid friendly”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

The only thing memorable about our meal was the chowder. It was delicious! The ahi tuna and duck were less than average. The sauce on the duck tasted like it came out of a bottle and the duck itself was a bit tough.

They don't have a printed kids menu and forget about crayons. We spent $8 for grilled chicken and fries for my 3 year old. Without a menu I guess it's easy to charge ridiculous amounts for a few slices of chicken and fries.

This is more like $$$$ rather than the $$ they are claiming. Definite tourist trap!
