I went here for my birthday dinner with my fiancé. Compared to other places in town, Henry's is bit pricey. However the food is well worth it. The creme brûlée was the best I've had.

Looking for a good seafood place that is not a Red Lobster or a Bonefish Grill this is the place. Hard to get to but if you have GPS it'll take you to the front door. Small place with rustic ambience. Kitchen opens to the dining area. Food was great. Good salad bar which went with the entrée. Good list... More

My husband and I have been going to Henry's for many years. The food is fabulous and staff is very friendly. We have introduced many people to Henry's over the years. From business associates to recommendations for first dates, we always recommend Henry's.

This is my wife`s favorite restaurant. She likes the lobster francaise. The seafood is second to none. Reservations are a must! They have great early-bird specials week nights. We always go here for special occasions.

We love love love Henry's. Where else can you go for a Lobster Francese? Salad bar is terrific. You had better wear your loose pants. I am not kidding. The restaurant itself is very small so you need to have a reservation. They do not open until 4:30pm. The service and food are both excellent.

Hands down the best seafood in Allentown, and possibly the Lehigh Valley. Its also one of the few places locally that I can order my favorite dish: escargot. exactly the way I like it: in garlic butter. And its not just the seafood either. I've ordered numerous entrees, ranging from steak to chicken, and it was all top-notch. Heck even... More

I went with two friends and we all loved our meals...and the salads. Pasta with seafood dishes...yummy. Will go back again soon. Great good, clean restaurant, good prices and friendly staff.

Masterfully prepared meals that are always consistent. Eating at the bar is special because of the great service and watching the attached kitchen prepare the meals. You can't beat the early bird specials. Been here many times and will return.

Reservations are a must. The food and service are good, sometimes very good. The restaurant has been around for at least 30 years, and is very popular.

Great Local Restaurant, We finally went last week. You need reservations. This place is small, and parking is on street so it can be hard to find. Food was wonderful, and expect a wait, the chefs are cooking it in the middle of the restaurant but it is worth the wait. Drinks were good, and great selection of seafood. Also,... More
