Best meal we have had in a long time

We ate here to celebrate the final end to the long school year. It's one of our favorite places to eat in Allentown. The food is always excellent and the service great. It's pricey, but well worth the cost. The dining area is very small, so call ahead for reservations.

While traveling, we try to support the independent eating establishments, as opposed to the franchise restaurants. We were visiting a few colleges in the Allentown area and checked out the online reviews of the area restaurants. Henry's intrigued us so we went there. It was everything described and more!! Don't be dissuaded by the curb appeal because there isn't much.... More

Like others, we've heard rave reviews. Sorely disappointed. We had "German" potato pancakes app - not sure what was German about hash brown cakes? The fried mozzarella app (for my daughter) was horrible, heavily breaded and cold. Salad bar was fresh & was the high point of the meal. My mother & I ordered the Fruits de mer - seafood... More

Just a hole in the wall restaurant seating maybe 50 people, but the food is exceptional. The open kitchen is great -- you get to watch the chef prepare the meals as you enjoy a drink at the bar. From fresh seafood to great veal dishes, Henry's has something for everyone. We've enjoyed birthday dinners, anniversary celebrations, and just plain... More

I can't say enough about Henry's Salt of the Sea. The food is fresh and delicious always. You can get an assortment of seafood from the menu or they also feature daily specials. Fridays they have an early bird special if you go before 6:00 PM. It includes a special menu with beverage, entree, salad or soup and dessert for... More

Excellent food and service. We got there shortly before closing and they treated us like we were the first customers of the day.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary several weeks ago at Henry's Salt of the Sea. We had been there previously on several occasions, and this trip did not disappoint. Our meal was perfect from beginning to end, and the server was very helpful by answering questions regarding our food selections. The only criticism that I have is that... More

My parents came to visit and I took them and my gf to this Allentown gem. There is a unique feel with the dated decor and simple service. It works because you can see the owner/chef a few feet away in the midst of his life's work. The food was delicious all around. It would have been 5 stars if... More
