Henry’s Salt of the Sea is one of my favorite restaurants in the LV area. The food is consistently delicious and reasonably priced. The portions are large, yet the quality is amazingly good! By far, the best place for seafood! Never disappoints.

Warm, cozy atmosphere. Some of the best seafood in the Valley. If you've ever been curious about trying escargot this is the restaurant to do it at.

We were stopping in Allentown to escape Hurricane Florence. We stayed at the local Renaissance Hotel and wanted dinner at a local restaurant. I found this online and we found Henry’s to be a “hole in the wall” in a residential area. We entered and...More

For our anniversary my only request was a great seafood dinner and Henry's delivered. I know others complain, but I loved the casual ambiance. It's not stuffy and the meals were great. You absolutely need reservations ahead of time. I had the red snapper soup...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
