Stopped by Henry ' s for dinner. Great experience I might add. Ate at the bar. Escargot was wonderful. Crab cakes were great, especially with the brown butter. Cocktails were a very generous pour.....

Henry's is the hidden gem of Allentown. Service is great, food is great and it's just amazing what delicious meals they prepare in the tiny area behind the bar! Salad bar always fresh and cold. As far as atmosphere, it's a classic hole-in-the-wall establishment. But don't judge a book by its cover!!

Henry's is one of my favorite spots for dinner. The interior is the same as it was in the 1970's. But somehow that adds to the authenticity of the place. No sleek decor, just amazing seafood. I mean really well prepared food in fine sauces, but you can wear your jeans. So hard to get a reservation, but with the... More

The food is consistently great, the service is impeccable. This is a small restaurant with great food! If you are looking for atmosphere go elsewhere.

I have eaten here about 50 times at least! Incredible filet mignons, seafood specials of the day, 1 pd. veal a poivre! I get hungry just thinking of this place! Superb service, small dark rest. limited seating, reservations recommended. Expensive but worth it! You won't be dissapointed.

This is our go to restaurant when my parents take our 6 year old for a few hours. Early dinner specials are a real bargain. We just went on a trip to Dallas and ate at a Top 10 serious steakhouse. I think I will eat 3 meals at this place instead on 1 overpriced one any day of the... More

One of the most unforgettable, best tasting meals I've had. And it's not priced out of range for most. Try it out! You get your money's worth.

Four of us had dinner at Henry's Salt of the Sea last night. We had all heard great things about the restaurant and finally had an opportunity to try it after attending an event at the Fairgrounds. We called that morning to make reservations and we're told they were booked until 830 pm. However when we told them we were... More
