  • Best crab cakes

    Unlike most crab cakes, these are almost all crab making them a bargain. For a light meal, I suggest the crab salad ( one cake) and then fill up on a first rate dessert!

    The restaurant was essentially empty while others nearby were full ? We started with the fried zucchini to test the menu. The Zucchini was more breading than zucchini. It was hard to cut with a knife ! We left not willing to try anything else. The menu that we were provided was for a different day ,

    Dined at August Henry's prior to the Cultural District's Gallery Crawl. Started out with Friday's Happy Hour Martinis--$6.00--several to choose from. Fish Tacos were good as were the main dish salads.

    This was our first visit. Overall, very good and pleased. We will be back. My wife had Tuna (yellow fin). The Tuna was very good, not great but very good. I had the Kobe Beef burger on a pretzel bun. Very good. The menu is pretty large and varied.

    We were able to get into the restaurant when most of the restaurants in the area were busy. The food was good but everything was a little too well done: steak, ahi tuna, and crab cakes. I think it might have been so busy that the kitchen was struggling to do everything and to do it well. The chicken and artichoke dip was awesome. I had the crab cakes which were good, but dry bc they were over cooked.

    We dined here before a show at the Benedum. The service was quick enough that we had plenty of time to get to the show, without being rushed. There was no gluten-free menu but the chef was able to accommodate my needs.

    I have been going to August Henry for the last 4 years. Bought à fund raiser book with a coupon in it and was going to the Benedum and figured I would give it a try. Food selection, ambience, service, affordability .... Now have gone there every time I am in Pittsburgh ... Have introduced August Henry to many friends and they also are return customers ... On a scale of one to ten rating I give it a TEN. Love it!

    The best things about August Henry's were that we got a reservation at the last minute and the food was really good. I recommend the sweet potato crusted chicken salad and the sangria. It took a while to get our food, but we still made it to the Benedum on time. Typical bar atmosphere - nothing special. Prices were reasonable.

    We had reservations at 6:00 on a Friday for the theatre and were seated right away. Service was a little disjointed but acceptable. The food was good and there was a lot of noise from the happy hour crowd. Tables are a little close together and the lighting was florescent office lighting which I did not like much. Overall, it was a good experience and would go again

    Nothing really memorable about our dinner at August Henry's, but nothing bad. The location in the cultural district was what interested me about the place. We got dinner there before a show at the Byham. Our appetizer was very good. We had the fried zucchini. There wasn't really anything memorable about our entrees. My wife got the salmon pasta and I got the evening's special. Overall, not bad, just not particularly good or memorable.

    It is a nice restaurant and good food, but if you are pressed for time or have to be out to have a show to go to it probably won't make it. That's happend to us twice. We made reservations for 6:15 and after 7:45 we get our food and had to just get up and leave it on the table because we had to get to Hienz hall for a show at 8pm. They are nice at this restaurant but very slow if they are busy.

    Food was great - very tasty and good value for the $. Good drink menu with nice martini specials on Friday. Very loud environment though, and they seated us next to a table of 6 so really hard to carry on conversation.
