Reviewed yesterday NEW

We found Chena's hill walking to the shops. We liked the menu and decided to give it a go. We liked it so much we went back the next night. We shared the meals. Night 1 we had a cheese burger and night 2 we had filet Mignon. Both were excellent. Chena's has a great range of beers too.

They have just opened for the season, and it ran smoothly with a good sized local crowd. The steak and crab cake was delicious. We shared a strip steak, cooked perfectly and tender. We added a crab cake. It was mostly crab, little filling [perfect] but tiny.

This little restaurant sits on the Chena River. The grounds are lovely and with the right weather a beautiful walk. The food was delicious. I have lamb chops that melted in my mouth

The food here was amazing! Everyone in my party enjoyed their lunch. The waiter was very, very accommodating, and went out of his way to be kind to the children in our group.

What a nice place to spend a cold, rainy day! The bar is located as soon as you walk in. Take a seat & eat here. The bartender will answer all your tourist questions!!!! The food is fabulous!!! Several homemade soups to stick to your bones, sandwiches piled high with select meats, great side dishes & nice selection of wines.... More

Service was ok, Jameson the executive chef is top notch!!! Extensive knowledge of local food and classic preparation. Ask for a table outside by the river, beautiful setting.
