This is a reliable, sure-fire hit for everyone. We go for special occasions only because of the price, but that's ok because . . . it's special! Décor is dark wood, like an old-fashioned sailor motif. Salad bar is always fresh and never boring - a rare find. Service and smiles are true perfection. The staff is always tuned in... More

My words to the Chef and his staff when finished: "I don't know where I could go to get It any better" Need I say more.

We have been going to Henry's for many years and have never been disappointed. Don't let the dated decor throw you. The food is always outstanding and priced lower than you pay at most restaurants. You can watch the chef cook themeals and many of the servers have been there forever.

the food was very good and the service was great. I found the restaurant to be a little pricey for how small the restaurant is. We had a group of 8 and when people would go back to the restrooms sometimes my coat would fall off the back of my chair because of the tight quarters.

Lived in the area for a long time before visiting due to the exterior appearance, this was a mistake. The food in excellent and prepared right behind the bar in the restaurant. Good salad bar included with entrees. Service is always good and it is consistently busy. Some of the entrees can be fairly pricey, but don't expect an upscale... More

We went here for my husbands birthday. The food was good, the salad bar was well stocked and the atmosphere was ok for the location. Their only downfall is there is no parking lot and most everything else is posted...we got lucky that a spot opened up on the street. The section of town it is in is not the... More

A small simple place, but the service and the food are really quite good. The salmon was very good and cooked properly. I asked for med, rare and it was. Wife had the seafood Fri Diablo and it was properly spicy. Reminded us more of North African flavor than north Mediterranean, but still good. But, the startling part was the... More

The only fish I like is salmon and Chilean sea bass. On the night I was at Henry's with a friend for dinner, one of the specials was Chilean sea bass with lump crab meat, tomatoes, mushrooms scallions with a lemon butter sauce. We both ordered it and were wowed beyond belief! I am not a lemon fan so was... More
