If you like lots of meat, this place it for you. This is classic German food. I highly recommend the prime rib. But, get there early, because they can sell out. They are huge portions and tender deliciousness. With the lamb chops, you get 3 chops. Also, very good. If you are feeling low on iron, the liver can't be... More

I only have Henry Wahner's 3 stars because my HUSBAND, a huge MEAT EATER AND LOVER OF ALL THINGS MEAT, loved it. Honestly, this place is stuck in the 1970's with their décor and vinyl tablecloths. Ew. The slab of meat (prime rib) my husband got hung over his dinner plate. It looked like a half a slab of beef.... More

A recent visit to this once great restaurant was a total disappointment. From the dingy interior to the surly wait staff to the dreadful food, it was a total wasted evening. My wife had the Schnitzel with spaetzle and I had liver and onions. The schnitzel was too thick with soggy, not crisp, breading. The spaetzle was mediocre. I ordered... More

Excellent German food but famous for their huge steaks. Not the cleanest place but if you want a great steak Henry's is the only place to go in Kent. Perfectly done with seasoning direct from the owner, an award winning chef from Germany and made famous in NYC. Thousand island dressing that put Henry on the cover of Chefs magazine... More

The place was busy. To us, and for a weekday quite busy. I ordered the mushroom soup as an appetizer, it was really good, so I was primed for a really good dinner. We ordered three dinners, schnitzel and spatzle and one scallops. The schnitzels are huge, but they are not pounded thin at all. they are more like breaded... More

Not the place it once was. While in town visiting family I requested a dinner at my once favorite restaurant Henry Wahner's. Six of us attended and there would have been more of if cash wasn't the only way of paying (not the cheapest place to get a steak,etc). We met in the bar area and were told to go... More

Very good food, nice waitress (thanks Diane). Not the most upscale in decor but the food makes up for it as you get portions to take home for lunch and the ribs were fall off the bone good. We ordered ribs bbq and prime rib.
