There was 8 of us and everyone ordered something different .. The Breakfast was ok but not served hot .. The hamburger and French Fries were hot but it was a frozen burger ... The Chinese food was ok it was served hot and a bit expensive for what you got.. Service was friendly The view is spectacular!!!

Went with a friend, and chose as it was close by. We were too late to catch the Sunday night buffet, so chose one of their dinner for one options. The Almond chicken was good, and the rest was flavorful enough, but nothing spectacular. View of Qualicum Bay from our seat by the window was fabulous. Reasonable prices. Hopefully will... More

Tender pork dumplings also made on site, no pre-made shipped in from Costco here, nothing but home made and fresh. The smorg is only Fri, Sat & Sunday's it is worth the... More

Came for the Fish and Chips that we heard was good but they no longer use halibut Henry's now using Bassa which we are not a fan off so we tried their Chinese Food. It was okay......service was not so good. Really lower middle of the restaurant range . Spend some money and goes else where

Not many places to eat in the area so Hdnrys was better than nothing. Prices were high for what you get. Flavorless. Not much selection in the buffet. Service was great though! Friendly and acommodating waitress. Nice view overlooking the ocean.

Ordered twice and had buffet once. Buffet was much better than ordering off the menu, which is usually the opposite at most restaurants. The last time we ordered food (very overpriced for small town) we brought it home (we live exactly one minute away) and the stirfried vegetable chopsuey had actually coagulated with all the cornstarch (Im assuming) and was...

This is an authentic Chinese food restaurant and very popular with locals. By far, the best word wonton soup around. You can eat in or take away.

Henry's has been a staple restaurant in the Qualicum Bay/Bowser area for decades. The Chinese Food in the past has been uninspired, but always hot and tasty. Unfortunately it has gone steadily down hill over the past few years. The last two dinners we have ordered have been poorly prepared, tasteless and expensive. We ordered the Szechuan Beef and a...

The location and view is great. The staff make a great effort to make you feel welcomed. The buffet was average but of good value for the price. I would return.
