This restaurant has been a staple in Allentown for a very long time. It is very intimate and small where you can actually see the chef in the kitchen. All food is locally prepared in the restaurant and offers a decent salad bar. The menu...More

Had heard rave reviews from the locals but were very disappointed. Food was uninspired and way overpriced. Salad bar no better than a truck stop. Nothing special. Guess we are spoiled by Lobster House at Cape May which sets the bar. Won't be going back...More

We visited Henry's with friends from out of town and they loved it. Great seafood, tasty with perfect portions. Decor is dark wood paneled and the exterior is blue.

It's a must go if you love fish, seafood and steaks. Don't expect a fancy restaurant, but expect a small, quaint, friendly fun dining experience.

I have lived in this city over 50 years. If you want the best seafood come here. Make reservations and don't expect a big modern Restraunt but a very small quaint friendly place.

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

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.
