If you've never been to Henry's in Acworth, you're missing out on the best Cajun food outside of Louisiana or just the best Cajun food, period. Henrys Louisiana Grill (HLG for short) is downstairs from Henry's Uptown. Our family loves

Where has this place been all my life? We were in visiting from the Illinois/Wisconsin border. We both love the Milwaukee and Chicagoland restaurants, BUT ..... this place is paradise! Loving cajun food we decided to dive right in for the Wed night crawfish boil , which started off with a cornbread that is "Slap your Mama" good! Yup...that good! Asked for another basket of the darn stuff. When the crawfish, corn and potatoes arrived it was camera worthy. As we were emailing pic's to friends and family, I decided to try the corn. WOW.....I never thought corn could be a weapon of mass destruction.! The corn held all the "heat "from the spices (unlike the crawfish and potatoes.) But for people who love their Cajun food, you all know this is taste bud bliss. Flames were nicely extinguished by my very attentive waitress who rushed to my side to cool my tongue down with their wonderful Louisiana Beer called Andy Gator. Need I say more!. We had several other restaurants in the area we wanted to check out, but were convinced there could be no better! Went back 3 more times until we were force to return back North.

I love Henry's ! The food is outstanding , always is . Henry lets you know he appreciates your business by walking around and talking to customers. Henry was even out serving people in the cold at the taste of Acworth (food was great then too ). This is for sure one of my favorite local places to eat at .

My whole family loves to eat at Henry's and has been doing so for the past five years. We go at least once if not twice a month. The ooh la la is amazing. The skinny meals are great for those of you who are watching your weight. Recently I had a grouper entree that was on special and it was cooked to perfection. The food, staff and atmosphere are first class. Don't forget the bread pudding or cobbler for dessert!

Henry's is great! Try the Louisiana Ooh La La, it is absolutely incredible. Definitely worth a drive if you don't live in Acworth.

Pros: The food is great!

Cons: It can be a little noisy, but, have you ever eaten in New Orleans?

We've been going to Henry's since shortly after it opened, back when Henry, his wife, and his kids (then very little) practically lived in the place. Henry's quickly garnered a following. (It's not uncommon to see license plates from 10 or more counties parked up and down the street.) Food is very good and service quick and friendly. Despite having to wait on weekend nights for a table, once seated, diners never feel pressured to finish up and leave. Henry, whose chef's attire gets wilder by the week, personally greets guests at every table with his trademark opening line, "Welcome to my home!" and keeps his wait staff hopping. (I hear that he's a perfectionist both in the kitchen and out front; his young waiters know that he will tolerate nothing less than their best.) Portions are above average and guests can make substitutions without getting annoyed looks from the wait staff: For example, for one of the pasta dishes,I always substitute linguini for the angel hair pasta, which can be overcooked and sticky in any restaurant. One evening, my husband and and I, as well as two other couples, made a meal of appetizers. We ordered two of each, sat back with our generous drinks, and enjoyed a tasty variety. I've never had "room" for dessert at Henry's, but my husband and our friends all rave about them, as the perfect ending to a perfect meal.

I agree, the food isn't the best. Although, my family loves the Ohh La La. I wish the shrimp and grits were better and then we would all be happy. The grits are gritty (uncooked and not creamy) and the shrimp also appear to be uncooked. The atmosphere is nice and it's a good place to go with friends. Henry is pretty nice too, in his crazy chef pants. It's close to home and I'm sure I'll go back again. I have to get my bread pudding fix and they have the best. Tell them to put lots of the sauce on it and you better go ahead and order the large. I've always had good service.

I absolutely love the food. My husband loves the Ooh La La - I love it all. They have some wonderful specials. You have to get there early or you will definitley have a wait - but it is well worth it. I have visited a lot of cajun restaraunts, but this is by far the best ever! The staff is very accomadating and the chef is always there to make sure that you are satisfied with your service and food. It takes a true cajun to have a succesful cajun restaraunt and we have found the perfect place!

We went for dinner at 6pm with our neighbors who could not stop raving about the place. We ordered the chicken oolala which is basic angel hair pasta with alfredo sauce and some fried chicken nuggests cut up. It was just okay and I found the waitress to be less than friendly and never came over to see if we needed anything else. I would not recommend going back.

We went on a Saturday night. I highly recommend reservations as even with a reservation, we were seated 30 minutes after arriving; however, while waiting for a table, we ordered drinks from the bar. The bartender was very friendly and the service was quick. Lots of LSU fans at the bar and everyone seemed to be having a great time. While waiting, Chef Henry also came out and greeted guests and checked on the service out front.

Our server was Britney. Although my husband gave her a bit of a hard time, she was great. The service was quick and friendly without hovering. We started dinner out with the Hot Chili ??Gator. I??ve had fried alligator before, but it was chewy so I wasn??t looking forward to the gator at Henry??s. I was pleasantly surprised. The strips were very tender and the sauce was great. My husband thought it was a bit too salty, but I think they were perfect. It had just the right blend of sauce and heat. We also tried a stuffed lobster ravioli? It was disappointing, to say the least. It looked and tasted like it was store bought and previously frozen. It was also crunchy. Yes, it was fried, but not well? It had no flavor whatsoever.

My friend ordered the gumbo and wasn??t too impressed. We also ordered the Caesar salads which were citrusy, but pretty much lacking in any other flavor.

For dinner, we tried the Louisiana Ooh La La with both crawfish and shrimp. The sauce was a thick cream base served over angel hair pasta. Although the taste of the sauce was amazing, it didn??t pair well with the angel hair. The angel hair seemed to soak up the sauce and turn into a congealed mass. It would??ve been much better over a linguini or fettuccine noodle ?? something that can hold up to a cream sauce. The lettuce was fresh & crispy, but that's it's most redeaming quality...

We also had the blackened filet mignon that was on special that night. It was served with a mushroom bourbon sauce reduction and mashed potatoes. The filet was done to perfection. It was one of the best steaks I??ve ever had. The sauce was perfection and didn??t overpower the meat. Even the potatoes were wonderful. I would definitely order it again.

I had always loved Henry's food, so I asked them to cater my wedding in July of 2007. They provided me with the menu options and the price per guest after a while, and I said great...please send me a contract to sign....And they never sent the contract to me, but we had lots of conversations about it over the past 4 months. And now on November 26th, 2007...4 months later they called to tell me that they got a better, bigger offer, and "we just don't have the man power to do both"....Thanks for dragging your feet for 4 months, and leaving me high and dry to find another caterer...I hope there is a good one left at this point!!!!!!

I'll never go back....You just don't do people that way! A verbal agreement should be just as good as a written one. Henry....you are only as good as your word! Shame on you!

Without mentioning names I'd have to say someone (Linda) has a bone to pick with Henry.

Henry??s is authentic Cajun. Anyone who says it??s not doesn??t understand the concept of marketing. A Cajun restaurant that serves ALL of the regional favorites such as fried catfish skin and Cajun snail and no other adaptation will attract only true Cajuns. Acworth has how many of those? Four?
Henry??s balance of true Cajun dishes and southern adaptations is great.
I take my children almost every time I eat at Henry??s and I have never heard him utter a single curse word. I have to assume that if Henry used strong language towards Linda there must have been a reason (Maybe it was Linda he was cussing).
Henry has long hair and a beard?.big deal! He??s a great guy?friendly and grateful for your business. If you have a problem with it, go eat at Disney World were everyone has short hair and is clean shaven.

Compared to other places with this level of service and food the prices are great.
It is noisy?.Hello, you??re in a Cajun place?.This isn??t ??Le Grande snob? in Buckhead.

Bottom line here folks the best way to tell that Henry??s is great. Downtown Acworth was a ghost town when he built his place. Look at it know. Everyone is trying to cash in on his traffic.

Went there for a lunch on 08/02/07. Ordered the Oh-la-la and the Bayou Cake (lunch, not appetizer). Being somewhat a culinary aficionado, it takes a bit to impress me. I do have to say this place was definitely on the list of better places to eat in Acworth and the general surrounding area. The prices are reasonable and the food was spot on -- all the people who claim to 'know' what Louisiana food is supposed to taste like and then turn up their nose at this place don't know what they're talking about. They do have a few classic dishes and some nuevo-cajun stuff, which I particularly enjoy. The cake was tender, the seafood was fresh, and the seasonings weren't overpowering -- they added a nice depth of flavor and plenty of warmth. The service was polite and very attentive -- my drink was never half empty.

This place is definitely worth stopping by.

I have ate at Henry's since he has opened. The wait is not worth it. Lately he has changed his steak menu. My favorite is ribeye. He as changed to New York. The steak was not cooked as order, it was ordered med well but came out done and dry. The waiter charged 18% on our check. We had only 4 people. I didn't pay the 18%. If 10% is good for the Lord, its good enough for waiters. Also, when Henry's walks though to talk with customers, I hate having my grandchildren with me. He uses a bad words, every other word. His music and people are to loud. I agree with the other review about the drinking. They are not to drink on the sidewalk, but this past summer I saw it quite regular. Henry looks more like a Waffle House cook than a chef. He needs to clean up, cut his hair, shave, and wear a real chef outfit. His cornbread is good, but cold. The white bread is stale and cold. He needs new type of bread.

This was 3 weeks ago so it's not too fresh, but 1 reviewer is correct in saying the selection of true louisiana cuisine is limited. Mostly a Southern favorites menu. But I have to say the food was extremely good and the portions adequate. My date had the etouffee and I the ooh la la. The prices can't be beat. Service was very good and slightly informal which I prefer. Just a bit on the noisy side from the size of the crowd. After the meal, the cook, I assume owner, maybe Henry himself, came out to greet us and check about the meal and service. I consider this to be a class act.

Henry is a great guy who decided downtown Acworth was a great place to make a go of his business. Thanks Henry! We love the food, fun atmosphere. The servers are always helpful and this place is always hopping. The Downtown area has been revitalized in part because of Henry's. Parking is not so great, but worth the aggravation.

Henry's has wonderful porkchops. Not consistant with quality but it is nice to have this kind of restaurant in Acworth. Prices are a bit high for the area and portions small for the price.
I would still recommend this restaurant.

PROS: taste of food

Henry's may not beat a "real" cajun restaurant from Louisiana but it's pretty darn good. Monday nights are your best bet for prompt seating. Get there before 6PM or after 9PM. It gets crowded in between. Personally, I think the food could use more spice to kick it up a notch.

Henry's may not beat a "real" cajun restaurant from Louisiana but it's pretty darn good. Monday nights are your best bet for prompt seating. Get there before 6PM or after 9PM. It gets crowded in between. Personally, I think the food could use more spice to kick it up a notch.

It couldn't get any better if you were in the French Quarter in New Orleans. Henry's is the best! Great Food, Cool bar, fun atmosphere with friends and family.

Pros: Great Food, Great Atmosphere, Specialty Drinks

Cons: Very Fattening!!, Not for the Dieters, Long Wait/ Call ahead

We tried Henry's at the recommendation of friends (several in fact) and were very pleased. My husband is from Lafayette and this is the first place he found 'like home'. They have a kid's menu with coloring contest to keep them entertained and a lively atmosphere that complements the great service But best of all was the excellent food! We tried the gumbo, etoufee & ooh la la. We met Chef Henry and found him to be very friendly and knowledgeable. We made reservations and it was crowded so this is recommended. A must try it kind of place!

Pros: great food, full bar, kid's menu

Cons: too loud for some, make reservation

Henry's gets a lot of publicity in the Atlanta area, but I am a local from Acworth and my opinion may stray from the usual. While I agree that Henry's has a delicious selection of Louisiana cuisine, I also think this business has a few flaws. The waiting list can be tremendous, and while the crowd is waiting, they tend to drink and become, shall we say, tipsy and may cause disturbances. Evenings are probably not appropriate for children. I have also questioned how fresh the food is, and the conditions of the kitchen.

I was born in New Orleans and this restaurant in my opinion was a big disappointment. The portions are small and the food is mediocre. The restaurant has terrible ventilation and smells like someone poured seasonings in the vents. They buy their food at Publix (yes, a waiter told me this one b/c I told him the food didn't taste fresh) and cook it in spices and call it Louisiana style. Everything is small, small portions, small shrimp, small oysters, and small crawfish. However, the price compared to value is just not there. Sorry! O.k. so, a lot of people who aren't familiar with Louisiana food like it, so maybe if you have no expectations of what real Cajun food should taste like, you probably won't be disappointed. If you're from New Orleans or any part of Louisiana and you want fresh quality seafood, you won't find it here. Sorry!!!!

This place is upbeat and lively. Great prompt service and amazing food. Hands down the best place for cajun in the entire city. Makes you feel like your in New Orleans. Try the crawfish!

This is a place for superb food. Henry's is a fun place in old Acworth, right next to the tracks. It's lively and full of people, with a wait that I thought was worth it. The chef came out with some samplers while we waited last time.

Pros: Louisiana Food!

The Lousina O' la'la is awsome - cornbread is to die for and the breadpudding is great

Some of the best Cajun this side of New Orleans
