    Walked in to watch Thursday night football and lucked out and got a booth at the bar. We arrived just before 6PM we got the happy hour specials. Superb deals on the bar menu. Since it was so cheap, we ordered way too much food, but got to sample lots of dishes. Everything was excellent, hot, and served with a smile! The hummus came with a huge stack of pita's for dipping, not the usual 4 or sections like most places. You could almost make this a meal. We got a Caesar salad, chicken fingers, sliders, and cheese fries. WAY TOO much. Had a great time with lots of TVs with HD. Great parking right beside Henry's.

    The food and service was very good. The only hitch was there was no Creme Brulee at dessert time and we did not find that out for quite a long while after ordering dessert. The server offered a free substitution but we had our hearts set on the Creme Brulee. Overall it was a good meL and experience ni would not let that stop me from going there again.

    Big crowd at 6 pm, getting last calls for happy hour. Really a mob scene, loud music on patio. Food mediocre, waiter hard to attract once he saw we brought our bottle of wine from the bar. Didn't bring water or bread, although I mentioned celebrating our anniversary, nothing was said or done. Won't be back.

    We went here after getting a gift certificate. This is a great place. Decor was awesome and clean! Staff was professional and well groomed and very polite. The menu is great. There was so much we wanted to try. I don't eat cheese, my wife does. We wanted to share items on the menu so we could try more items. They went out of their way to split meals for us with the likes of each of us on the plate, even though we did not ask for it. The server was great. We will be back and took advantage of their point card.

    Henry's is not special. The food is OK, the ambience is OK; nothing great about it. So if you just want to eat and don't expect excellence, Henry's is fine. Nothing to recommend it.

    Food was ok. I asked for my burger medium we'll and it arrived medium rare, my husband asked for medium and got well done. Half my fries tasted moldy (nothing visibly wrong with them). The brownie sundae was great and huge. Overall it was fine but with all the other restaurants in the area it doesn't merit a return visit.

    My friend ordered a pear and walnut salad for dinner, but when it arrived the salad had no pears or walnuts. When she brought this up to our waitress, the waitress told her she would bring her "extra" pears and walnuts and that she was sorry there wasn't enough. My friend got half way through her salad before the waitress came back with "extra" sides. The waitress asked how the salad was and my friend pointed out yet again that the salad was missing its two main ingredients which was weird. All the waitress said was "I know right?" and walked away. Overall, we did not get the service we were paying for in comparison to the price of our meals. Will not come back to celebrate special occasions again.

    I used to get the Cobb salad and it was delightful in the presentation. They had the toppings mixed together in a molded shape on top of the salad, and you could order a half size for those who are trying to watch portion size. Now they put the toppings separated out, with a huge piece of uncut chicken on top. It is not nearly as pleasing to look at, and the chicken is not as easy to eat. When I asked about when they had changed, the wait person looked at me like I was an idiot and said they had always served it this way. I also asked for a smaller portion and again, the wait person told me it was impossible and that they had never allowed it. Funny, it was just six months ago I had it served the old way.

    We wanted to give our out of town guest a great Portland dining experience in the Pearl District and Henry's did not disappoint. We had an excellent server who was very attentive and friendly. Our food was delicious, hot, and served correctly with no mistakes. The only thing that could have been improved was the lighting. There was a bulb burnt out above us and it was hard to see the menu and take pictures. Overall it was a great experience and we will be back to visit soon.

    I was in town on business with 5 other colleagues and made a reservation for 6 people at 6:45pm. The Tavern texted me the morning of to confirm that we were still coming, nice touch. I confirmed but also texted them back 3 hours later asking if they could accommodate two more individuals. They said it was no problem! When we arrived, our table was ready for us with no wait. We had a Portland native with us to help choose a local beer, which was helpful. However the one I chose was out, so the server suggested another very similar and it was amazing. The food was also very very good and came out in a timely manner. Would definitely come back here if I'm ever in Portland again.

    We had 5 in our party, and it was dinner before a show at the nearby theater. I mentioned that and the waiter made sure to have our check ready when he brought out a second round of drinks after the entree. I'd rate the service highly. The food was very good, no complaints from anyone in the party. And the beer was very good. There was a large group (18) near us, but the booth seating we had made it cozy and the noise wasn't an issue. They have a nice patio for outdoor dining, it's in an atrium like space between the buildings, so not right out in the sunshine.

    We just love love Henry's. so we booked it for my best friends bachelorette party. It took so long to get our food. Then on top of it our food was wrong and we didn't bother sending it back and having to wait. Our server awful. We had to go track her down not once but twice. She was slow messed up our tickets. Then was rude to me about it. Didn't know you where allowed to treat a costumer that way. I was so disappointed. Because usually Henry's is absolutly amazing

    Henry's is a great place to go if you are without other options. It is kid friendly and they have a pretty cool hidden bar area. However, this place is huge in comparison to other Portland restaurants. With that said, you can't expect much. The food is decent. But not mind blowing. I think it's a little pricey considering the quality ($13 to $15 for a signature burger). I have also never received great service here. In the Pearl district of Portland the standard is high in regards to food and service. It's also terribly loud. This place is mediocre at best. But like I said, I didn't expect much more so I wasn't "disappointed".
