We had the grilled cheese and the fish and chips. Both were delicious but huge portions! We have nothing negative to say!

We waited almost an hour to get our food. The other three in my party got their orders and I had to sit and watch them eat while I waited.

I was very impressed with the staff at Henry's Tavern. I could tell that they were short staffed and we had a fairly large party (10) but everyone was moving with a sense of urgency and was very friendly. They even stopped to say hi to my baby niece! Overall the experience was very good and I had a great birthday dinner.

Our server, Stephanie, was very attentive and knowledgeable. She also responded to us in a professional way being quick and yet not making us feel like she was rushed.

One of the best servers I have had recently.

Overall the food was good. I was disappointed as I ordered the baja fish tacos and what I got were good fish tacos, however they were not baja style. The fish was grilled and there was no type of sauce on it. My wife had a bbq chicken pizza that was very good.

I had the chicken tacos. The food was left under the heat lamp for too long. The avocados were beginning to brown due to the heat. The flour tortilla was starting to harden. Our server hardly checked on us. Only received water refills when our glasses were empty and we had to ask for one. And when one person asked for a refill, rather than asking if others wanted a refill, he refilled the one glass and walked away.

We ordered and waited 45 minutes without getting anything - no salads, no appetizers, no refills. We were seeing a show so we told them we needed to go. The manager finally came to our table, was horribly rude, said “this is not a fast food restaurant” and walked away. I totally understand it is hard to get help - but the restaurant was less than half full. There was no sense of pace that I knew when I worked in restaurants. We will not go back here. There are so many other options in that area so no need to eat here.

Arrived early and was immediate that the hostess was challenged/attitude. Came in for anniversary to watch a college football game and was first placed at a high-top in back corner next to shuffle board game in progress with no room to move, then relocated and informed that several of the tv’s we’re reserved for a group that was coming in, although previously we requested a regular table online. OK , but when this group showed up 1-1/2hours later it was 12 young women who were not even watching any game? Food was typical bar food, staff was friendly but not attentive and the place was not busy at all. Left at halftime as we couldn’t finish the burnt desert - we will definitely look for a different restaurant, not the experience I have had at their other location in Portland, Oregon.

Terrible service. Took over 1.5 hours to be serviced.
During a business lunch, this was embarrassing. One of our attendees had to leave because food didn’t come out timely.

The service was extremely poor. It went beyond bad staffing, which we would expect during the current staffing crisis. There seemed to be enough staff. The waiter took 25 minutes to even greet us. The appetizers took another 20 minutes and were cold. Our meals NEVER came, and the server asked us what we ordered and claimed the kitchen lost our ticket. The only redeeming quality was the restaurant did not charge us for our apps and drinks. We had to leave without any dinner because we had been there so long and nothing was prepared for us.

Awful only because they were short staffed. The server had too many tables or was really bad at his job(?) kept forgetting to put orders in etc…… brought it up to the manager who acknowledged the issue said he would address the situation and return with a resolution and NEVER RETURNED!!! He was obviously not great at his job either. I flagged him down to discuss the issues and he tried to pass off his neglect on the server and us so not acceptable …… food was average. I will not go back especially since there are many other options in the area. It’s too bad because it could be a cool place …. Oh well

They are pretty shorted staffed and so it took 2 hours to have a drink and quick bite. That being said we expected the slow service issue because we read reviews, even so, it was still rough. That giant pretzel can make up for a lot though, so yummy

Our server Anna was awesome! She had a very large section I’m sure to lack of employees, but she was sweet and very attentive.
I was not happy with the host/hostess. We checked in and the reservation was not correct. I made the reservation in Open Table for 6 and they had in their system for 4. I even showed that it said 6 in my app. Anyway they said they could not accommodate a table of 6, even though multiple empty tables. We were told they were being held for later reservations. They then seated our party at two separate booths. So we were back to back and we couldn’t even converse so we were all split up.
The tables they refused to sit us at were never seated the entire time we were there. When I asked to speak to a manager he just said oh yeah we had several “no show” reservations. I’m thinking they need to take care of the customers who are actually there. I get the restaurant industry is in a major struggle right now. I am patient due to that. But these managers and host acted like they didn’t care to help us out at all. Even if and when they had reservations cancel while we were still there we were never offered to move to all be seated together. This situation could have been handled so much better.

We went at lunch time and it wasn't very busy.

It took a very long time to order our food in a very long time to get it.
It was my work hour and it took at least 45 minutes to order.
In another 30 before the food came out.
