Don't waste your time or money at this place!!!!!!

I have never written a review on any place until now after eating at Henry's. People who call this place an institution should be committed to one. I drive by this place everyday and have heard people talk highly of it so my wife and I decided to give it a try. The ordering is a little quirky you order in the bar and then wait in the bar until they seat you for your salad and bread. I assume this is so you will get l... view more

I would have to agree with the person who followed my May, 2010 review of Henry's Hi-Life...what a sad disappointment it was to find the quality of food so low!..yes, the Henry's I remember was ""an institution"" and I cannot say when the deterioration came about, but I imagine it was during the '80's...the beginning of inflated prices and diminished quality in just about everything. I felt compelled to submit a... view more

Best Ribs in Town

I've been coming back to this joint with my family year in and year out. It has always been packed with regulars for a reason. There are just some places you keep coming back to, because you feel at home.\r \r It's not the most attractive restaurant. In fact, it is a hole in the wall. Certainly not the place to impress a first date! But, let me tell you, I've always enjoyed the tasty and juicy ribs, and I never tir... view more

Great food...........but be prepared to wait

Henry's has been around for a very long time and I have been going there since the mid 80's. Every time I have gone, I have had great food. The experience is different from other restaurants. Henry?s can be very crowded, especially if there is a Shark's game going on. When you get there, you need to take a number and wait for them to take your order. The menu is on the wall along with the prices of the meals. But wha... view more

I Iove this place! I'm so glad they have a location near my work. My experience has always been great at Henry's. The food is very fresh and the service has always been prompt and friendly. I've tried prime rib and ribs and its always really tasty and flavorful. The meat just melts in your mouth! It was so good! I mostly dine in evening when it is most crowded. The food at this place is fantastic so I dont mind ... view more

Great food and unpretentious atmosphere let you just relax and have a good time with food, friends a

The food here is always good. As for me, I get the baby-back ribs every time. Sometimes they are merely very good, but sometimes they are mind-blowingly good! My wife gets the steak or prime-rib and loves it every time. But the best part of all is how simple the place is... and I mean simple.... the decor, the potato and salad that comes with the meal, the building, everything. However, its hard to find a place like ... view more

The best unassuming unpretentious place in town.

Henry's is the best. The food is simple and great. The portions are huge and the prices are reasonable. The ambiance is a trip back in time in a wonderfully historic part of the city. We've been loyal customers for years. It's a great place in the middle of a lazy afternoon and unbeatable before and after a Sharks game. The staff is enthusiastic and goes out of their way to help. We (two women of a certain age) wante... view more
