    i am a fan of Henhouse and was eager to try this new space. It is nice enough and I will likely return. My medium rare burger was pretty rare which I don’t mind per se but shows a hurried or careless kitchen. Also the burger came with some veggies that were not mentioned of the menu and were quite spicy.

    They have made great progress since opening a short while ago and it's so great to have a dog/bike/family friendly enterprise with outstanding beer back in this space!

    Fantastic beer. Sadly, food really needs a revamp. Basic bar food done well would be so much better. Same chefs as IS but even kid burgers are just slopped on plate with undercooked frozen fries. If asked for well done , they refry the ones you send back! Ahi was good but $24 in a beer place is stretching? Really good , short menu of basic food would be a great asset to HenHouse and Fairfax. PS: they asked for comments on food!

    Indoor is great,pub like feel,close seating. Outdoor is good for dogs but could get cold and windy later in the day. Helps to make reservations before hand. Food is good, portions are small.

    The new setting is great - upbeat, lively and light. And of course, the beer is outstanding. But the meal was maybe a 5 out of 10. We had a salad and asparagus which were good, but the burgers were served plain with "tomato preserves and seasonal trimmings" which consisted of a piece of lettuce, pickled vegetables that were too chunky to put on the burger and I guess the preserves was ketchup? The grilled cheese didn't come with any savory jam as far as I could tell/taste and the fries were cold. Overall it was a disappointment and we probably won't eat there again.

    The food was good - my companions enjoyed their burgers and I loved the asparagus bagna cauda as well as the garlic noodles from the specials menu. As ever, the beer was fresh and delicious!

    We sat outside under a warm heater with the wind blowing pretty hard! Food was great! Chef Alex has really brought something for everyone! And it’s awesome! You need to show proof of vaccination to eat inside, and if you don’t have that you can eat outside. Keeping everyone healthy. Service is friendly, and wonderful. There is a whole new area called the lounge for more intimate seating, or family style .. all very open and inviting…. It’s new so changes will continue. Check them out!

    Great beer (of course). Burger needs some work - a brewpub burger should be juicy with a hefty patty - this was neither. Fries were very good. Service was very good.

    Feels a bit like eating in a restaurant at the airport. Very chilly inside the night we ate there. Loud! Food not very good. Would like to see more organic and information on the source of the beef.

    We’ve been awaiting the opening since Iron Springs closed 😟 The new Hen House is nothing like Iron Springs except some of the staff whom we love The interior is beautiful and clean, the noise level is a bit much but to be expected in a open space like this The menu is full of yummy dishes, have yet to try them all Burgers are very good, Alex’s specials are always scrumptious There’s a wide selection of beers and a few wines that fit the bill The prices are a bit steep for a casual place in Fairfax, but knowing it’s the first week of opening perhaps that will even out with more substantial dishes for the price Welcome to the neighborhood Henhouse cannot wait to see you grow

    Hard to get excited about new food flavors when you have the same chef from Iron Springs sending out expensive $15 bland sausage dishes. GH gets them right at half the price. The word on the street is many locals are not impressed. It’s going to take time for them to get this one right if they can.

    Beer is the only reason to go! Food was well below what you might expect from the Henhouse. I hate to write this review - but it’s accurate as well as unfortunate. I will return for a cold pint but not cold bland cuisine. Prost!

    First week of operation so expected some kinks. Staff still learning about setting tables and food and beer menus. Beer was good as expected. Food was served quickly but under seasoned and over cooked. Last call 8:30pm and lights on by 9:15 for closing. We had large group and tried most items. Appetizers were better than entrees. Lots of veggie choices. Excellent mushrooms throughout various items. Will likely try again but might give it a couple months. Overall miss Iron Springs but hopeful Henhouse will learn from feedback.

    Food was great. Our server was great. Same great beer as the other HenHouse locations. It is noisy. I'm somewhat hearing deficient so noise make it difficult to pick up a conversation amid the noise. We sat in the main room. I hear there is a lounge but we didn't look at it.

    This dining experience was fabulous. They have a variety of table settings that work for different groups and the food is divine. We ate the Fairfax Toast, the Best Life Mussels, and the warm apple gallette. All were delicious. The Fairfax toast is a wonderful starter. The mussels are flavored with fennel and leeks which were delicious to scoop up along with the mussels. The shell fish were decorated with saffron rouille which added both an enticing flavor and also a striking appeal to the presentation. The dessert of warm apple Gallette looked elegant and tasted sublime. The ambiance of this restarant was inviting for both intimate meals and larger friend and family gatherings with seatings that were quiet as well as long benches for large gatherings.

    We loved it. The main dining and tasting area is open and fresh. Nice outside seating is available. The waiting staff were very attentive. There is a great collection of different beers. I had two different imperial stouts which were delicious. The food menu is waay more unique and tasty than what you'll find at a regular brewpub. The hamburger was good but amazingly the meatless brat was very tasty. We are coming back for sure!
