This is a favorite of ours m, esp for late night. We might have to rethink this as this is the second time (in a row) that things seem to be falling off. First, some good- great beer list(bonus points if you never ever run out of Mac and Jack as I just can’t take it). Menu has improved - good choices, organized etc

This trip. Service started great. Food deliver by the woman working the line. Food sat there for over 15 min under heat. Why? Because the burger needed waffle fries. And the line server asked twice. Ever eaten a gluten free bun that sat under a light for 15 min? And how about that cold pickle. ettuce and tomato. Ugh

Set ups( napkins and flatware). After we asked twice. The person who ordered ribs asked whether she could have a wet wipe. Nope but offered to wet a bar napkin. Okkkkk

10:30 and mostly empty, why put us next to the kitchen.

First of all they cancelled my reservation after I told them we were there for a reservation. Our waitress was not super friendly. When I asked her which entree was better between two options she had to go to the kitchen to see if they had the ingredients for either recipe. When she came back she said they didn’t have the items for either recipe due to their food delivery being late. We should have walked out at that time because it just got worse. We placed our order with her and waited. She took forever to refill our drinks and completely forgot about the beer I ordered and I had to remind her. When I placed my food order I asked for no tomatoes. When the food got to our table, there were still tomatoes in it. The manager came over and was very nice. He said the kitchen would remake it and brought me a free cup of chili. When the new item came out, the noodles were improperly cooked. At this point, it was comical. At the end of the meal the manager said he would give us a complimentary dessert which was nice but it didn’t make things better. When we finally got our check after being there for more than an hour and 15 minutes, we gave our card. It took the waitress 10 minutes or more until we asked for our card back for her to bring our check. Overall, the service by the waitress was an absolute disaster. Would not touch this place with a 10 foot poll.

I have been going to Henry’s for years. I will not be going back. The food has definitely gone down hill. There was 6 of us and nobody had a meal that was over the top. It was not good at all.

Friendly service, good beers, pub atmosphere. The food is good but not great. You would think a place like this would have good french fries, but they were dry and mealy. The pub pretzel is worth sharing as it is baked fresh. The food is pretty much "by the book". A pleasant enough meal but not memorable.

Great place to dine and have drinks, normally. Busy evening. We arrived for our reservation 5:30. Our waiter was aware we needed to leave by 6:55, at the latest. We hardly saw him. He took our order, then *Poof, gone the remainder of our dinner. He checked in once -on a running flyby, never to receive our round of drinks or return till we were all standing and waiting for the hostess to bring back my visa. (had to pay someone)
Subpar service. Disappointing. Food was good.

A disappointing dining experience at Henry’s. We had 6:15 reservations and sat down on time. Told the waitress we had a 7:30 theatre show to see and ordered our food shortly after. It took 30 minutes to get our food.. a burger, salad, sushi roll and fish tacos. The food was fair, little to no dressing on salad, they couldn’t find soy sauce for the sushi so we finally got some packets. We had about 12 minutes to inhale some food which we didn’t finish due to time. Not a pleasant experience. Had to rush out to make the show. The restaurant was not crowded at the time. Overall, not a good experience.

We have been there a few times and have liked it. I feel they have gone downhill a bit. Service wasn't the greatest. It took us 45 minutes to get 2 beers - after they brought 2 wines that we didn't order -- twice. When we asked if they could bring the beer, the waitress snapped at us. We got a different waiter and he did a great job. Food was so/so - a little too salty. Portland has so many great restaurants that Henry's might want to step up the food quality to get back to where they were

The food and our waitress was awesome! We were celebrating my son's 21st birthday with family and some friends and Henry's really met our needs of being cool enough for him, but also youth friendly (had a few under 21 with us) and our older attendees. The menu is robust with lots of options, everyone found something and enjoyed their meals. Our waitress did a great job attending to our larger group, had lots of beer and wine recommendations (she really knew her stuff). We enjoyed the Gorgonzola Cheese Fries, Fried Cheese Curds, which I highly recommend, both are delicious appetizers.

The only issue we experienced was around our reservation, I made it on OpenTable for 10, and then called shortly after to add 1 more to the reservation, the gentleman who took the call said "great all taken care of/confirmed", when in reality he actually cancelled the reservation (I'm sure it was totally an accident)... but when our group of 11 showed up- the front receptionist was a bit snippy suggesting that we hadn't make the reservation/had no record of it, sort of like "ya right" attitude. Thankfully OpenTable sends an email confirmation, and I had my phone's call log handy which clearly showed that we DID have a reservation... so they had to do a little scrambling to get our table(s) together, but in the end problem solved and we had a great spot that really fit the group nicely!! Other than that, wonderful 21st birthday dinner.

I would highly recommend Henry's for their food, ambiance and wait staff who were really knowledgeable, attentive and super friendly!

Beer! So much good beer!! Apparently there are 100+ beers on tap at any given time... something like 60 on the list, a seasonal list & a specials list. Servers are friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is cheerful and gregarious. Our food choices - very pub-oriented menu - were pretty good. Cheddar & beer soup is outstanding - stringy cheese and rich taste; fish tacos were crispy on the inside and well seasoned with tangy mango salsa that made a good contrast; and an excellent vegetarian burger with waffle fries covered in Gorgonzola sauce. Hearty, filling food that compliments beer well. Desserts were not typical run of the mill selections - we didn't try them but will next time. Overall a fun, energetic restaurant with good food and amazing beers on tap and a modern, downtown vibe.
