Certainly not my first visit, just discovered the Wet Hen card that has been available, but I wasn't paying attention! Your food and service are fantastic, and I love bringing/meeting my friends there whenever possible! Keep up the good, friendly atmosphere you have!

My coworkers and I work right down the street and frequently pick up lunch here. If you need to fill your need for a grilled cheese or grilled tuna they have you covered!

Cute small place! Friendly people serving good food. Nice, quaint place for breakfast or lunch with a family member or friend. Moderate pricing.

Although a small seating floor plan, this place is well worth the wait if crowded. Good clean food and reasonably priced entrees. The staff is very pleasant. The owners are top notch, also.

The Wet Hen can be a little crowded, but that is likely because the food is so good. In the summer, you can sit outdoors. They deliver the food fast so it's great for a quick lunch. WH is one of my favorite restaurants. It's...More
