“Nice Pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

The Henry House was recommended to us and we enjoyed it. There was room to sit outside and view the city while keeping cool. Our waiter was so friendly and went out of his way to be helpful. He even drew us a map to our next destination to make it easier for us to find. I had the BBQ Chicken Sandwich with fries and enjoyed every bite.

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

We arrived in Halifax in the late evening and naturally most recommended restaurants could not accommodate our party of 5. The Waverly hotel manager recommended Henry House and it lived up to his review. Though they were very busy, they found a table for us and drink service was prompt. The wait staff did not get flustered when one person in our party accidentally turned over a tall glass of beer. The food was hot and excellent. I think we all had seafood and it was fresh and well prepared.
I will return!

“Excellent lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We stopped here because it was pouring rain and we couldn't find the spot we were looking for in our guidebook. It was our great luck! The food was excellent, and locally sourced. The waiter accommodated our daughter's finicky palette. The beers were local and also really good. We loved it. And found it to be reasonably priced among other options we'd considered. Washrooms are also in good shape - which counts a lot with a small child. I highly recommend a stop here.

“Henry House - cool pub/restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Henry House- what can I say, this bar/restaurant is cool. This is a super old building and it has a lot of character. The place has a lot of options. You can do drinks outside, dinner inside, and the pub is in the basement. The menu runs the gamut from expensive to cheap. I would eat here any time.

“Good food at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

This place is just across from the Halifax Hostel. It was recommended to me by a memver of the Via Rail crew aboard the Ocean from from Montreal. I ate down in the lower level and had fish & chips. Huge portions! It has a very good selection of Halifax and other microbrews and the bartenders are friendly and "gifted conversationalists." I went there three times in five days.
