I hadn't been to Henry's Salt of the Sea in a few years. It still has everything just as I remembered-a fabulous salad bar, delicious food, and a friendly staff. A small dining room could be a negative- but here it is a busy and cozy dining experience. The space in between tables is tight, but that doesn't deter loyal... More

I await each visit to this restaurant because I know I will experience a great dinner! You can be assured the vegetables will be a fine quality that are well prepared and not soggy or water soaked as in some restaurants. The salad bar has many items to choose from and all are fresh and appetizing. This is the greatest... More

Henry's is a great restaurant and their early bird specials are a great deal. The chicken francaise is awesome and a favorite of mine. The sauce is so tasty and you will have lunch the next day. They get very crowded, so reservations are recommended. You won't be disappointed.

I went around 5:00pm and took advantage of an early dining special. I selected scallops as my entre and was impressed with the huge amount of scallops served to me. I have paid two to three times the amount for scallops at other restaurants and received less than half of what I got here! The sides and salad bar were... More

Service excellent and friendly. Exhaust system in restaurant many years ago was a negative and happily no longer a problem. My husband and I had fish special and soft shell crabs. Both entrees were perfectly prepared, fish was moist (may I say in Lehigh valley not routinely experienced). Salad bar fresh and good variety. Only suggestion would be to decrease... More

So, first off my thanks to the TA nation in regards to Henry's. Before I arrived, I called to get reservations to sit at the bar. Great choice. Nicole is the bartender, and she was awesome. Very cool, and provides excellent service. I started with the Oysters Maryland, which was topped with real crab. They did not skimp on the... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Allentown. We've been going here for years. Everything is so fresh and delicious. The service is always excellent. The seafood scampi is the best I've ever eaten. The owner is the chef and takes great pride in his masterpieces.
