Henry's looks like a dive, but the food and service were excellent. I highly recommend reservations as the place is small and appears to be very popular. My husband and icelebrated our wedding reservation there recently and very much enjoyed the delicious crabcakes. We'll definitely be back again.

People rave about Henry's and my guess is they compare it to Red Lobster. It is small, cramped and noisy. I have been lucky to sit by the swinging doors twice that lead to the kitchen and restrooms. You also get a great view of where they stack up the dirty dishes. It has a real diner vibe not fine... More

Henry's is a small, somewhat noisy restaurant that serves very good fish and other entrees as well. Have never been disappointed. The Blackened Salmon is outstanding.

This is my family's favorite place to eat in the Lehigh valley. Very quaint and the food is always delicious. Reservations are a must. Great early seating specials.

If you have not tried Henry's then get your but in there. Make sure to get a reservation because it is small and fills up on weekends pretty quick. You can sit at the bar too. The food is very unique with a lot of garlic and capers. Extreme flavors of both!! Everything is very tasty. You will be very... More
