I made my first visit last night and had the lobster mac & cheese appetizer; it was wonderful with a rich flavor beyond what I expected. The salmon, shrimp, crab & halibut were prepared perfectly. Thank you, Henry's, for respecting both the ingredients and your...More

I used to live right across the street from Henry's. Now we go back every year to celebrate Groundhog Day. The food is always fantastic, and the salad bar is one of the best in the area.

This is one of the most hidden treasures in Allentown. Excellent food and prices. Very quaint and relaxed atmosphere. Early bird specials are extremely wonderful buys. If you want true value for your money this is the place to go!

Had heard rave reviews from the locals but were very disappointed. Food was uninspired and way overpriced. Salad bar no better than a truck stop. Nothing special. Guess we are spoiled by Lobster House at Cape May which sets the bar. Won't be going back...More

Can't speak to parking but we were not thrilled by the food. Hard core local following but not for us. A friend whose opinion I hold in high regard prefers Youell's Oyster House on W. Walnut Street in Allentown. We've not... More

Will need to find a parking spot on the street. Best place is one block west of the restaurant off of 20th street. Parking can provide a minor challenge.
