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

My colleagues and I stopped at Henry's Salt of the Sea for dinner. Parking for the restaurant is limited out front but there is a parking lot just up the street. The restaurant has been open since the 40s and has a good mom and pop feel when you enter. We lucked out and were able to get a table... More

Given the high ranking on TA, we were expecting to be blown away. Instead the whole experience was just so-so. It felt like we were back in the 60s with the salad bar and 60+ median age of the clientele. The place was packed so the meal took 30 min to arrive. Everything was OK, but not worth a return...

Thanks to the reviews of this restaurant in tripadvisor, I made reservations (highly suggested) for last Thursday night. My wife and I were just passing through town on the way to Newport and had a craving for seafood. It was an excellent choice. Don't be off put by the exterior, go on in and enjoy terrific service and great food.... More

This is a reliable, sure-fire hit for everyone. We go for special occasions only because of the price, but that's ok because . . . it's special! Décor is dark wood, like an old-fashioned sailor motif. Salad bar is always fresh and never boring - a rare find. Service and smiles are true perfection. The staff is always tuned in... More
