Henry's is a great restaurant and their early bird specials are a great deal. The chicken francaise is awesome and a favorite of mine. The sauce is so tasty and you will have lunch the next day. They get very crowded, so reservations are recommended. You won't be disappointed.

I went around 5:00pm and took advantage of an early dining special. I selected scallops as my entre and was impressed with the huge amount of scallops served to me. I have paid two to three times the amount for scallops at other restaurants and received less than half of what I got here! The sides and salad bar were... More

Service excellent and friendly. Exhaust system in restaurant many years ago was a negative and happily no longer a problem. My husband and I had fish special and soft shell crabs. Both entrees were perfectly prepared, fish was moist (may I say in Lehigh valley not routinely experienced). Salad bar fresh and good variety. Only suggestion would be to decrease... More

So, first off my thanks to the TA nation in regards to Henry's. Before I arrived, I called to get reservations to sit at the bar. Great choice. Nicole is the bartender, and she was awesome. Very cool, and provides excellent service. I started with the Oysters Maryland, which was topped with real crab. They did not skimp on the... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Allentown. We've been going here for years. Everything is so fresh and delicious. The service is always excellent. The seafood scampi is the best I've ever eaten. The owner is the chef and takes great pride in his masterpieces.

On our drive back home, we passed through Allentown and I researched restaurants on TripAdvisor. This one came up as a top favorite so we decided to try it out. It was hidden on a back street and didn't look like much from the outside, but it was truly a gem. The place was already packing out at 4:45, but... More

Wow, were we impress with our meal at Henry's. We heard wonderful raves from friends and they were so right. Both hubby and I had fish that was fresh and flavorful. Included with our meal was a salad bar with many selections, fresh, warm rolls, a potato and side vegetables. I can honestly say this was one of the best... More

Been here a few times, just visited for 23 yr. wedding anniversary. I had Henry viii(petite filet and crab meat), wife had lobster francaise(their signature dish). Both were fabulous, drinks were good and service was excellent. Impressed by the industriousness of the staff. Don't be fooled by décor or size, the food rocks.

Thank Harry N
