“Outdated dump!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This place needs some serious TLC. Cannot believe it was rated so high as a romantic restaurant! If you have ANY class at all, you'll never take your date there. The parking situation is hellish, I was dropped off by my husband so he could circle the block again. You enter through the bar and I was not welcomed and was ignored as if I was a nuisance to them as they were engrossed in conversation. I caught a glimpse of the so called dining room and was appalled. It was so tiny, shabby and univiting, as was the entire place. Needs a good cleaning and overhauling. I called my husband who was still circling and told him to pick me up and get me out of there.

this tiny hideaway is full of character & charm along with good food, wine & ambiance. The clams are absolutely delicious. Enjoy a meal by yourself or with friends & you will be glad you did. Highly recommend

“Henningers is top notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you are looking for a unique Baltimore dining experience, and altogether great hangout, go to Henningers on Bank St. It's a local stomping ground with fantastic food, especially the crab cakes and fried oysters with spinich in fennel cream sauce - yum!! Wonderfully quirky ambience, friendly service and great decor.

“New Find In B-More”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

We've eaten in most every good restaurant in Baltimore but had never discovered Henninger's until this past week. What a great find! Yes, a little off the beaten path, but only a few blocks north of happening Fells Point. The food was fantastic. Four difference entrees were delivered to our table and all were simply excellent: salmon, crab cakes, scallops and shellfish pasta. There are only nine tables in this funky decored restaurant and they don't take reservations but if you're there before 7 it's generally not a problem. Parking, however, might be a challenge as there is no valet. It only took us 2-3 minutes to find on-street parking and on Saturday's after 6 it's free. We will be back.

“Henninger's - Great food in local tavern”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Henninger's is the quintessential local bar with excellent food. The crabcakes and seafood of Maryland are excellent (but this is not a crabhouse). Varied meat choices as well. We eat here nearly every time we are in Baltimore. We have not been disappointed. The decor is odd photos and posters, and likely none have been changed in years. We find Baltimore restaurants must be excellent to please the locals. We find Baltimore to be a good-eatin town, compared to one of its bigger neighbors. Good beer, wine and whiskey choices too. This is a small place so get there early. Henningers is between the neighborhoods of Fells Point and Butchers Hill, but away from the crowded part of Fells Point.
