...and picked this place first.

We were on our way South and arrived in town late and hungry. So we didn't take a lot of time walking around to find food.

We chose Henry's and liked the burgers so much we returned for lunch the next day.

On our return drive North 10 days later we ate there again.

Hostess and table staff were great - friendly and helpful. One young lady in particular was super nice. I told her we were thinking of Charleston as a winter home and she wrote out a list of areas we might like to check out. I wish I could remember her name. She deserves a raise for great customer service.


The only sour note I have for this place is we sat at the bar for a drink on our last night and were totally ignored by both male bartenders...so we left. This was later on at night on 10/5.

We won't let that stop us from eating there again, though. We'll just make sure to get a table.

Food was great it took awhile but was worth the wait. Atmosphere is very nice, especially the rooftop patio. Had comfortable seating areas with wicker furniture and another level set up for dining.

While Henry's may not be an eye-catching chain restaurant, we found it to be a quiet island of good food, rapid and enthusiastic service (Leah is a gem!), good beer and drink selections, all very reasonably priced for Charleston. The main dining area needs a bit of post-70's decor refit; the upstairs lounge a very nice option as well. If you're near the market to shop, or even if you're not, it may not offer sophisticated dining, but is well worth stopping in!

We went into Henry's to grab a quick Saturday afternoon lunch & was quickly offered seating. We requested to sit on the rooftop & was politely obliged. Our server was prompt & the beer was cold! We ordered specialty tacos & they were delicious!! The dinner menu looked great & we will go back on our next trip to Charleston!

Great late night place to hang out. 1st floor is a elegant sports bar atmosphere, 2nd floor is a live music venue - small but cozy with wood walls, long drapes, wood floor, sofas and small tables and chairs and another full bar. Have been there three times and each time the live music was great. Third floor leads you to an upscale dance place - soooo much fun and we were sad to have to leave at closing. There were two full bars and one room with a view of the dance floor was reserved seating of many sofas with private bar service - nice! Seems to be a hot spot for bachelor and bachelorette parties. Always good watching entertainment:) There is also a rooftop area with tables and chairs and sofas with drink service. Nice plants help create a soft atmosphere. All is all there is not much to not like about Henry's - Please note: I have never eaten there. Just a great spot to go to after dinner to hang out and play.
