We love eating here. The food (prepared in plain sight by the owner/chef) is, always, reliably delicious! The quality is far above the norm AND they offer "specials" Monday thru Thursday evenings that are incredibly reasonable in price...just be sure you arrive between 4:30-5:30. No...More

My husband and I were searching Trip Advisor for a seafood place for our anniversary and came across such good reviews for Henry’s. I called for reservations around noon and all that was available was a booth at 8:30 or the bar at 5. We...More

Been dining here for years. Tucked into a residential neighborhood, it has not been updated for 30+ years,but it’s everyone’s favorite seafood restaurant. Great salad bar and the best lemon butter scallops I’ve ever had!

Better make reservations, this place is too popular to just walk in. The food is excellent, especially the seafood. I had the lobster francais and it was out of this world. This paired with a baked potato, a fabulous salad bar and a good wine...More

What an interesting restaurant down a side street that you just wouldn’t expect to be there. Nothing fancy when you arrive, sort of dark and small, always busy. All food is cooked in the front, which is excellent. Wait staff very attentive, they know the...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.
