I really enjoyed the choice of stouts here, and the food was good too - a notch above most pub cuisine. The upstairs restaurant and downstairs bar atmosphere given one a good choice, depending on mood and company. The service was friendly and fast; I'll be back!

This is one of my "go-to" restaurants in Halifax because it is consistently good! It has a great relaxed atmosphere in a historic building in Halifax. I've tried many items on the menu and I've enjoyed each one. It has pub style food as well as great entrees. Worth a visit if you are visiting Halifax.

Visited Henry House for supper. I require GF which they had a special menu which is great. The atmosphere is relaxed and very friendly. The staff was great and service prompt. Will definitely visit again next time we are in town.

Does not look like much when you first enter but the food is really good, I also had great service which never hurts, the only downside i found is that when its busy it gets pretty cramped.

One of our favorite places to visit when in Halifax. The atmosphere is excellent, cozy tables even a fireplace and hearth. The staff were attentive and polite, they took our drink orders right away....try the flight of beer! We opted for traditional pub food which was absolutely flavourful and filling. We had our desert upstairs on top floor sitting beside... More

Rather than just add to the long list of deservedly positive reviews of the food and drink available at this classic Halifax eatery, I want to add information not evident from those reviews: Henry House now has a full, gluten-free menu. This option, and staff awareness of the issue, mean that Henry House ought to feature more prominently among the... More
