Diner Reviews
  • "They have 100 beers on top and the staff is very friendly. Our server Jennifer did a great job with her recommendations for both the food and the beer. The food was delicious well prepared and timely. A great night out."

  • "Portland has many breweries and pubs with good food and great drinks. Of all those great choices, Henry's 12th street tavern is the best!"

  • "Great service, great food. What was not great was the four middle schoolers by us yelling and an obnoxious bachelor party chanting for shots."

  • "Any time I go to Portland, I need to stop at Henry's Tavern. They have the best veggieburger in town! And I'm not even a vegetarian."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We return to Henry's for special occasions with friends and for their Happy Hour! It is a great place to feel the energy of Portland! I have enjoyed many different dishes from the Asian inspired to Italian flatbread! Salads are wonderful especially the chicken, pear and walnut salad with the jalapeno vinaigrette dressing! Just the right amount of pop! We'll be back again!"

  • "People really love Henry's; I am not one of those people. We had a reservation, a good thing as there was a long wait without one. Everyone was friendly. We were in a booth on the mezzanine and saw a parade of servers climb the stairs with enormous trays of food and drink. These young men and women work incredibly hard! Service was slow, but okay. The food was adequate. I had what was billed as the city's -- or world's -- best burger. Nah. But it was fine. The noise, however, was overpowering. Deafening. Couldn't talk. Couldn't hear the waiter. Music cranked up above the threshold of pain, diners everywhere yelling at each other. Some folks just love it -- I'd pay money not to go back. But that's a personal thing."

  • "Dining with friends here was awesome! The servers were nice, we had great food, plus at the end we got 20% off our check! We were there for 3 hours and it was fun. It was busy but that means its good! Will definitely go back, thank you!"

  • "We were celebrating with a party of 4 couples. Our beverage order was taken about 15 minutes after we were seated. The drinks didn't arrive for another 20 minutes, only then were we asked for our appetizer order. It arrived over an hour after we had been seated. We ordered dinner and another round of drinks. The drinks and dinner didn't arrive for another hour!. When the dinner finally arrived it was clear that the kitchen was overwhelmed and the meals were below average expection. Since everyones drinks had been empty for a long time we ordered a 3rd round of beverages. After 3 hours and 3 rounds of drinks we decided to depart and never return. It was a busy but not overwhelming crowd for a Friday evening. Horrible Failure!"

  • "Our reservation was at 7:30pm & they were not able to seat us for 20mins. The food was satisfactory, but not memorable. The restaurant was very loud, mght be better for smaller groups. The waitress was the best part of the experience. She was friendly & efficient."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "It was a busy Saturday night and we did not feel rushed through our meal. Our waitress checked in on us but was not pushy and she was flexible when not everyone arrived at the at the same time. We had a fun night!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We've made the trek in from "the burbs" to visit Henry's a few times...the food is always pretty good at a reasonable price. The noise level changes depending on where you are seated but it's always very energetic and feels like a fun place to be. Each time, the staff have been professional and pleasant. We'll be back to visit Henry's again."

  • "First time here. The gorgonzola fries were great as was the stuffed hamburger."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "A great spot for dinner before a play. An easy walk to the Portland Center Stage. The food was good and they were nice about splitting a burger. We each got our own plate with fries. We'll be back."

  • "We enjoyed our meal and experience. I had 4 people recommend it . I took out of town guests there and we all liked it. I tried 2 different beers and enjoyed both."

  • "Two of us went to dinner to experience the Portland Brewpub. It was an enjoyable evening in a friendly atmosphere featuring good service. My fish and chips were more greasy than I remembered but OK. My partner enjoyed her meal totally. We would go back."

  • "Got there a little early for reservation (5:oo pm ) plenty of tables un occupied but had to wait twenty minutes to be shown to a table."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Great food, smart & helpful waiter. Service a little slow as we needed to get to a 7:30 performance and arrived on time for our 5:30 reservation. Just couldn't quite get courses delivered in a timely manner to our party of four to make it to the performance at the Gerding by 7:15. (Two desserts ordered before 7 pm didn't arrive at the table until 7:15, but were worth the wait. Just forced us to rush instead of savor.) But the food, as always, was terrific, and the overall experience was very good. We frequently take friends and out-of-town guests there, and it will continue to be one of our favorite downtown Portland restaurants."

  • "This was recommended to my husband I by our son....he kept bragging about the Bloody Mary Buffett! He ranked it hi and he was right in doing so.....Loved it and we went on a Sunday for a brunch for my birthday and do not regret it one bit! I have been bragging ever since. This weekend is girls weekend to celebrate my birthday and I hope to talk them into coming here again! This place gets a billion zillion star ratings!"

  • "I have never eaten in a restaurant that had saltier food! Shouldn't the patron be able to add more salt at the table if desired? The steak I ordered was inedible due to the salt. I rarely have the nerve to send food back, but this time I had to. I couldn't see paying that much money for a steak that I couldn't eat. The waiter was a nice and efficient, so no complaints about him. Another steak was cooked for me and arrived after all my friends were ready for dessert. It full of fat, half the size of the first one and almost just as salty as the first. My partner's ribs were also quite salty. The vegetables had something chewy that felt like chewing rubber. I was really looking forward to finally eating at Henry's but we were disappointed."

    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "It was a fun place to dine, our service was quite good, but my meal (Rheuben sandwich) was very average. The place was really busy so the kitchen staff was doing all they could to just keep up. All in all, I'd recommend it."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "We ate Thanksgiving dinner here and it was great. Our table was ready immediately. Even though it was busy, our food arrived promptly and was delicious. Good prices and great food and beer. Wait staff was super friendly. Will be returning."

  • "My lunch at Henry's was very enjoyable. The waitress was pleasant and Attentive. The food was very good. We both had BBQ baby back ribs with Mac & cheese and asparagus. The atmosphere was very nice, perfect tavern style. I love the interior, especially the light fixtures. The only thing I did not enjoy was the parking, it was hard to find and we had to walk a ways to get there after parking. I do plan on trying Henry's tavern again, hopefully soon for dinner, and some time just to enjoy the bar scene."
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "I'd been wanting to try Henry's for a number of years and finally made it there over the weekend. It was fairly crowded, and the design of the restaurant made it quite noisy. Oh yeah, that and the bar next door. Too loud for my taste. And the food was just so-so. So many better options in Portland. Prices were moderate, which is what saved the deal for me."

  • "Recently had a party of 8 at the restaurant for dinner and drinks. Service was great--laid back, but always around to help out and responsive to all our needs. The beer was outstanding, and the food very good--"

  • "My friend and I took the opportunity to dine at Henry's in the evening on 12/29/2013, so we could get together, have a good meal, and have good conversation. The location is good, the atmosphere is also good maybe a bit loud for some, and the food was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner."

  • "We made Christmas dinner reservations based on Open Table reviews, and we were so pleased with this place. We were seated right on time, and our server was attentive and patient, yet not intrusive. That is a hard combo to achieve! Our meals were all delicious, hot, and each had something special about them...clubhouse made with buttery garlic toast; gorgonzola fries or mac n cheese offered as a side, kid's pizza made with from-scratch sauce. Fantastic. Also, the wait for our meals was not long at all even though the restaurant was hopping. The ambiance was delightful. We will definitely return. 5 star food and experience all around, thank you!"

  • "Henry's was very nice, was litte disappointed that they didn't have brunch on Saturday (only Sunday's), but it was still very good. I had the flat bread with rosemary and mushrooms, very tasty. We had our monthly Ladies Brunch here, minus the brunch, but will had a great time. They accommodated our group beautifully, the service was attentive and the price were reasonable. Recommend Henry's!"
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "I've dined at Henry's several times but this evening was hands-down the worst dining experience ever. It took the waitress 20 minutes to appear at my table to take my order. Once the food was delivered I never saw my waitress again. Unfortunately my onion rings were burned beyond being edible, my drink was never refilled and I had to find another waitress to get my bill. I have never stiffed a wait-person but I left a 1% tip."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "The menu offers lots of options so everyone can find something. The service was great. The noise level was a little off putting. The facility is nice looking."

  • "My wife and I had eaten here a couple of times previously and it has progressively gone downhill. 1st time was good with the New York Steak special. 2nd time was decent with Filet. For the 3rd time, I took my family here on Christmas Eve. The top sirloin, vegetables, and potato cake were terrible. The baby-backs, gorgonzola fries, salads, and bread pudding were below average. Service was absent-minded - we received utensils/napkins after the appetizers arrived. Not sure if ownership has changed, or performed cost-cutting on ingredients or staff, but it is not worth low-end restaurant prices, let alone their prices. I would not recommend this place and will not be back unless I somehow discover that things have changed dramatically."
