Delicious seafood

HUGE portions. Delicious seafood. Complimentary salad bar. It is next to a liquor store, on a side street, would not have ever chosen it. Do not be fooled by outside. Good it great!

The menu items were plentiful, priced accordingly. The salmon was my favorite, fresh, cooked to my perfection. I will be going back to try more delicious fresh fish.

when you first walk in to this restaurant, you're not sure what to expect-but eat there once, and you'll be back. The food is fantastic, fresh and perfectly prepared. I was there with a party of 10, and every single person was happy with their selection (including appetizers). Reservations are a must on weekend, as the place is small.

Had a great dinner on a cold winter night! Loved the salad bar and Henry the VIII dinner. Seating available at the bar for dinner if that is your thing! Reservations suggested as this restaurant is very popular!

It's been awhile, but the food and service are always outstanding! Don't be turned off that this jem is small, quaint, and in the middle of a neighborhood- you will not be disappointed with the unique dishes offered.

This place has been serving top shelf continental style food for over 20 years. Sit at the bar and meet great like minded people. Reservation (even at the bar is highly suggested.

I grew up in Allentown and had the occasion to return for a family function. Having been years since I was back, I checked Tripadvisor for a place to eat and found Henry's. Henry's is a classic you can't tell the book by its cover. First it was tough to find parking. Second as you approach the restaurant from the... More

I don't know if there is still a Henry but this restaurant never disappoints. It's always busy - it's hard to get a table on short notice even during the week, which tells you something, as Allentown has many new restaurants. Part of it's charm is that it is unapologetic about the crusty decor, which hasn't been updated in many... More

OMG but words fail me when trying to describe how good this place is! We are early diners, and figured that 4:30 on a Friday would be fine. Turns out the place was nearly fully reserved, and we were offered seats at the bar. We took them, and couldn't have been happier. We had the pleasure of being waited on... More

Tried this restaurant and had a great "early bird" dinner. Started with salad bar and fresh rolls, cream of onion soup, crab cake dinner and then ice cream...all for $20! Everything was delicious!!
