The menu has many options from seafood to beef to pork to chicken, etc. All preparations are good looking and good tasting. Love the salad bar and the bread sticks.

Old fashion self serve salad bar. Ambiance that has not changed in the 25 years I have lived in the Lehigh Valley. You go for the fish, not the ambiance.

My husband and I like to go to Henry's early to take advantage of the "Early Bird Special" You get a full meal, drink, salad bar and dessert. All of their food is always excellent and their servers are friendly and helpful.

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.
