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 offers a variety of very fresh options and you can feel good about what you're... More

We were in Allentown for the New Year's weekend and chose this restaurant due to TA reviews. We had reservations on a Friday night which were definitely needed. We went early to have a drink at the bar because of the inviting photos on their website. Those photos are deceiving as there are very few seats at the bar and... More

We have been going there for years for my birthday but last night was not what I expected. We waited for almost an hour for our appetizers, the waitress was not very attentive another gentleman had to get our drinks. My twin lobster crab imperial was delicious, but our side baby potatoes were hard as rock, (not done). My husbands... 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 to Henry's

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.

I never knew this little gem was in Allentown. I heard many great things, so we had to try it. Amazing!! I had steak & lobster and every detail was perfect from the sauce to it being done exactly how I like it. The salad bar is simple & like everything else here...exactly right. My husband got a steak covered... More

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 should say up front I am a New England girl (born in MA and raised in CT). My family home was a 1000 feet from the water. Seafood was a mainstay. But, don't get me wrong I love my steak, too. I have been living in this valley since 1986. Restaurants with good seafood were hard to come by... More

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.
