Four of us had a wonderful dinner at Henry's. The place reminds me of an old time New York Italian family restaurant. There are around 10 booths a 5 or 6 tables. Everything is prepared fresh right before your eyes. There are no heat lamps...More

Great place for seafood. Very good service. Casual dining atmosphere. they don't skimp on the drinks! Large portions. A little expensive, but you get what you pay for. Will go back again.

whole place is about the size of a single wide trailer, a little crowded, they offer some unique dishes, food wasn't horrible but for a dinner for two entrees, appetizer, and a beer it was almost $100....food, environment, and service was not worth the price!...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.
