Used my gps in my phone to find this place. I will admit from the exterior I would never have gone in if I had not heard how good the place is. We did, and we will be going back. The place is small, and...More

Noisy atmosphere but food makes up for it. Our meal was exceptional as it always is. Had the crab meat and it was a lot of food

A true slice of the community as this local gem will certainly aim to please. Reservations are a must any night of the week as it only has about 15 tables. Great bar selections for wine and liquor but beer is in bottles. Our party...More

Four of us had a wonderful dinner at Henry's. The place reminds me of an old time New York Italian family restaurant. There are around 10 booths a 5 or 6 tables. Everything is prepared fresh right before your eyes. There are no heat lamps...More

Can't speak to parking but we were not thrilled by the food. Hard core local following but not for us. A friend whose opinion I hold in high regard prefers Youell's Oyster House on W. Walnut Street in Allentown. We've not... More
