    We had a big group coming and going for a birthday celebration. We were moved into the tap room. It was fantastic. It shut out all of the outside noise and allowed us to all sit together. The service was great and the food was unique and delicious. We went out into the bar after dinner for the more lively scene. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for groups but would use one of their party rooms. The noise level was high in the main area.

    Wait time to be seated was more than we expected since the restaurant was not that busy. Very long time for a waitress to show up on our table. Waitress was friendly but not engaged on following up with us about our orders. Food took over 30 minutes to arrive. Drinks were not refilled unless we asked for it except for one time that the waitress did it without asking her. Food taste was really good except for the Margarita Pizza. It was just ok, not very warm and nothing special. Overall, the place is ok if you are not watching the time. We were a group that had to go back to work and took us more time than the planned.

    Great beer list and variety of foods. Something for everyone and several TV's for watching your favorite team. Service was quick and food good. Our group had pizza, burger, fist taco and bratwurst. Everyone sampled and have to say, burger won out for this night. A good place to go with a group of friends for a fun night of casual dining. Outdoor patio and bar area was packed! We would like to try their Sunday brunch.

    The food was pretty average. There wasn't anything spectacular about it but it wasn't horrible either. We were there around 8 p.m. on a Saturday night and it was definitely LOUD. My group had difficulty hearing each other talk and there were only 4 of us at the table. if you weren't sitting next to the person and they weren't yelling at you, you probably wouldn't hear them. I found it more of a sports restaurant as there were lots of TV screens around that had different games going on. This might be great for some people who like the atmosphere but it is definitely not a good place for a romantic date. Our server was very slow, probably due to the large number of people there but at the same time, we had to ask him for the same things multiple times. I don't like servers who are not attentive. I understand you're busy but try to remember or write down what you need to do.

    Went for a late lunch at the bar on a Tuesday and had a great experience!! Decided to go back for a dinner on a Saturday night and was sadly disappointed with the service. Two out of the three dinner plates were incorrect and the server did not say sorry and almost seemed to avoid our table afterward. Took 10 minutes for the server to bring our check even though he walked past us a couple times knowing that we were clearly finished and waiting. Food was good, just hoping we caught someone on a off night.

    The hostess was the worst I have experienced from a restaurant in years. She had an attitude and her tone was just downright nasty! I was holding an after hours business function for 6 and was debating on sitting in, or, outside. She acted as of if I was an inconvenience... why I have no idea no one other than myself was at the desk. I quickly decided to sit inside she basically told me to find my own table and walked away from me. The kicker was we had a reservation! I should have demanded to see a manager, however, had enough on my plate trying to pull off the business function. Our server on the other hand was the complete opposite and provided excellent service.

    I organized a group of 7 to meet for food and drinks. Good was excellent and so was the atmosphere. The service could have been better however. The drinks took a long time everytime we ordered more and the waitress said the bar was backed up. Also she left out finished plates sitting in front of us for some time that we asked another person to take them. Otherwise we enjoyed it! Good band too.

    I wouldn't necessarily go for the food, which was just OK but way overpriced--they're charging a premium for barely average food. The beer selection is good, the bar was inconsistent. My wife ordered a mojito. The first one was very good, but we sent back the second and it's replacement. She ended up ordering a Coors Light. Portions are ample but the quality was barely there and the kitchen messed up our order three times. I think it comes down to knowing what to order and staying with the beer.

    We were seated on time but were not allowed to take from the buffet until our plates came. Waitstaff seemed overextended but friendly and willing. Had to wait for buffet to be restocked - many items empty. Menu item one of our party ordered took too long to come out. No silverware on table. Drink refills almost nonexistent but as noted the staff was overextended.

    Food was just ok. Menu sounds better than the food actually is. Service was ok but indifferent. Music is loud, not great for a dinner where you are trying to make conversation. But great for bar atmosphere and the live music was good. I'd go back for drinks and listening to the music or watching a game, maybe a bite of food while drinking. But not for a meal. Great beer selection.

    The food and service as well as cleanliness deserve a 10 the only point that keeps us from gpoing more often is the noise level. There is no place to sit where you can hold a conversation without screaming..... please find a couple of places where people who want toenjoy the food and ambiance as well as other people in their party with less ambiance noise level. It doesnot ha e to be the whole place but maybe an area where the speakers are not turned on at the loudest. Your food is great let everyone enjoy without the loud noise

    It looked like it was going to be a good lunch but our order was late or messed up. Management made it right by comping some things. The food was very tasty and the beers we tried were also good. I think we caught them at a slow time and maybe a little understaffed. It was a late lunch time.

    We went to their brunch and was thoroughly disappointed with the service and cleanliness of the establishment. The waiter strolled by our table after waiting 10 minutes.... it was a buffet but you had to wait for them to give you the dishes. When we got our dishes, 3 of 4 were dirty... had food stuck on them. This kind of ruined the whole meal.

    Unfortunately, this was my third (and last) visit to Henry's and the worst experience yet. We were taking mom out for the brunch buffet. Upon arriving and being seated, our party of 5 waited nearly 15 minutes before our waiter appeared to take our drink order. It was another 10 minutes before he returned with water for all (2 Mimosas) and plates for the buffet. It took nearly an hour for my father to receive the coffee he had ordered. The buffet quality and selection was average but many trays set empty for 10-15 minutes before being re-filled. Overall, the staff and management simply seemed overwhelmed for the day. Unfortunately, poor service and a disappointing experience has become the theme at Henry's. Sorry mom!

    Dirty plates. Great waiter. Manger great. As far as the food I was expecting a bigger selection for Easter Brunch and since it was $26 for an adult so that was a little disappointing but the food that was available was adequate. Needed more flavor. Some of the stations were empty so I had to make a second run to experience all of the selections. The bloody mary bar was awesome! They had most of all of the ingredients that I like. Even pickled asparagus. Yummy! For special occasions I would like to have heard a one man band or DJ.

    The food, with the exception of the custom made omelet, was inedible. At the beginning of the line, there were no plates. When they finally brought some, the first 2 were dirty. And I'm not picky. The fruit selections were good. The muffins looked and tasted like they just came out of a box, as did the cinammon rolls. Actually they tasted like the box. The scrambled eggs were cold and tasteless. The biscuits were cold, dry and stale. The gravy looked like it came out of a can. The pancakes appeared to have been microwaved from a frozen state. The bacon wasn't cooked, and some of it was so spicy that I couldn't eat it. It was obvious that this place has no business trying to do a buffet, as they know nothing about how to go about it.

    I think the only reason why this place is exists is that there really isn't much of a bar scene in Plano. Lots of bad music, poorly dressed lost souls and noise. Did I mention the noise level is deafening? Don't even try to hold a conversation with anyone. Poor service but amazing bar food. That was the only redeeming quality of our experience.

    Food was ok. Waiter was not good. He would never come and fill our drinks. We could never find him. We wanted to order appetizers and we could not find him to order them. We finally asked someone else and it was too late our food arrived. Music was way to loud. We were screaming at each other at the table to talk. I could not wait to get out if there.
