My wife, our three adult children and their spouses ate here after experiencing "The Escape". Besides eating great food, we enjoyed reliving the experience. The noise level was moderate and the ribeye steak I ordered was delicious, though a little on the tough side (medium rare).

We came here for our anniversary dinner after reading other reviews and were not disappointed. First, we loved the decor and atmosphere. We started in the bar with the calamari appetizer - excellent. After moving to our table, we ordered the house filet with Bearnaise sauce and the braised beef short ribs. Both were fantastic. The steak was ordered medium... More

Hennen's is one of our favorite restaurants in Chattanooga! I have never had a bad meal here. Steak is my go to entrée, but the specials always sound delicious. The service is always excellent.

After driving about 10 hours we jumped off the highway for a 2 mile detour to Hennen's. Very easy to find and convenient parking in the garage of Hennen's building. (Get ticket validated by restaurant for free parking.) Service was prompt, helpful and attentive. Drinks were good sized pours. The salmon and short ribs well prepared and flavorful, and served...

My husband went to Chattanooga for business. I decided to join him. The first evening we dropped by Hennen's. It was a Monday evening so we did not bother with a reservation. That was a mistake. While they said their volume of business was unusual for a Monday night, they were busy! Nonetheless they worked us in. I had the... More

We stopped here after arriving to town after 8pm for dinner. It wasn't busy, and our waiter was a great help offering suggestions and being very attentive. Our party of 4 tried the hamburger (excellent), kids tenders and fries (ate it all!), the chicken and the pork -- both arrived looking fabulous, warm from the oven, and had delicious flavors!...

By some measures, Hennen's is arguably Chattanooga's best restaurant. While there are a few "fine dining" establishments, Hennen's scores on classy but not stuffy atmosphere, food that is creative but not avant garde, and good service. Our table had steak, fish, and chicken so we covered the bases. My chicken breast with risotto was extremely good, with the exception of... More

We do not eat here often enough. We did the other night and it was a fine dinner for my wife and I. The wine list is also very good if not a little pricey. Put it on your list.
