I never knew this little gem was in Allentown. I heard many great things, so we had to try it. Amazing!! I had steak & lobster and every detail was perfect from the sauce to it being done exactly how I like it. The salad bar is simple & like everything else here...exactly right. My husband got a steak covered... More

It's a must go if you love fish, seafood and steaks. Don't expect a fancy restaurant, but expect a small, quaint, friendly fun dining experience.

I should say up front I am a New England girl (born in MA and raised in CT). My family home was a 1000 feet from the water. Seafood was a mainstay. But, don't get me wrong I love my steak, too. I have been living in this valley since 1986. Restaurants with good seafood were hard to come by... More

This is a five star broth, the clams a... More

From the minute you walk in the door you feel a great vibe and sense this is a real neighborhood favorite. Small but cozy, Henry's will keep you coming back because the servers are attentive and friendly and the food is consistently top notch. The salad bar is small but offers a nice mix of tasty treats.

Drove 30 min to this based on TA reviews. What a mistake. Rated "$$" but was $17-$30 a plate. Had a special because it sounded good. It was so-so. Fish covered in a heavy sauce. I told them to hold the veggies as I wouldn't eat them - no discount. The chefs cook behind an old-fashioned bar, but the place... More

Their food is well prepared and tasty. The place is small and loud. They do not like changes requested to menu items.
