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! I'm sure there are better cheaper places around!

My wife and I have enjoyed Henry's Salt of the Sea for 30 years! During this time the service and quality of food has remained consistent and best in class! Recent dinner was no exception. The staff is always attentive to you and you never feel ignored as at some high class restaurants. The food is the attraction and you can't go wrong with any choice on the menu. The Fall menu in October Offers some great specials. My favorite is pork schnitzel and spaetzle. This is a fantastic dish and is only served in October.
Bon Appetit!

We found this restaurant by accident very near to the Allentown Fairgrounds. Nothing fancy about the place, it looks like a small neighborhood corner bar. There was virtually no parking that we could find close by so we parked on the street and walked about two blocks. We ordered several seafood items from the regular menu and their daily specials. Our meals were outstanding. Their salad bar had some unique items such as kielbasa. The service was very helpful and friendly, the portions were enormous and the prices were reasonable. If in this area again we will definitely return.

This quaint hole in the wall restaurant needs to be on your restaurant list. The waitstaff is wonderful and informative. The dining area is small and crowded, but worth putting up with for the food. The chef cooks on a grill by the bar! Try the early bird specials as there is something for everyone at a good value. The lemon/butter scallops are amazing. I would recommend reservations since it is small and fills up quickly with regulars.
