Chef/owner Brian Krans is at the helm of fantastically unique eatery. His crew are true professionals that are friendly and knowledgeable. Ask for Joyce as your server and she will take great care of you, plus put a smile on your face. There is an unbelievable bargain for you if ordered before 5/30pm. Appetizer, salad bar, entree with choose of... More

This place is a classic. The seafood is outstanding with great specials. You need reservations. The service is helpful.

We were visiting Allentown and saw the great reviews and decided we had to come. There was a reason why it was hard to find parking (on street--just drive around until you find something). The place was full of locals enjoying food and fun. Joyce was an outstanding waitress who welcomed us warmly and explained that the diverse recipes were... More

We went to Henry's for the first time with an out of town friend whose family was in the fish business for many, many years. We all raved about what we ordered. The ingredients were fresh, well prepared and the food came hot, and was truly delicious. Rolls are fresh and hot as well adding a nice touch to a... More

We had never been here before. We had tried a couple of times but could not get in. On a whim with friends in town we called and got a table. The atmosphere was a bit loud, but busy. The waitress was knowledgeable and attentive. The meals themselves were just plain very good.

My husband and I had our first "blind" date at Henry's on Oct. 30, 1999....We've been going every Oct. 30th (& then some) every since; booth #5. Needless to say, I was impressed by his choice of restaurant for a first date: Casual, unpretentious and consistently good. Also nice salad bar and decent size drinks. The place is small so... More

Tripadvisor had this place as the second most popular eatery in Allentown and I agree. We had the onion soup, broiled scallops, chicken Parmesan, and veal Parmesan. They were all very good. It was either creamy or slightly sweet but not in a sugary way. Food was fresh and the waitresses were all very nice. We went on an early... More

I am a stickler for my food being HOT! When you go out, it typically isn't HOT, but acceptably very warm. I get it. Since the Chefs are in the midst of the restaurant preparing your food per order, it is SO hot-off-the-stove! And, deeee-licious! Every time! We love Henry's!! The staff is super attentive, the food is fresh, freshly... More

We just planned a trip home to Canada from Myrtle Beach so we could eat at Henry's AGAIN! We ate there a year ago and loved it. Amazing food! Wonderful staff! Everything from the salad bar to the dessert was the best ever. Thanks Henry's. See you next year😀
