I have been going to Henry's for years with my husband and keep coming back for two reasons: the great beer selection and the great service from Sean (the bartender). All the bartenders seem good but he is by far the best! He goes above

Portland is known for being a foodie city, it can be difficult to set yourself apart. But i just love the look of this resturant and the food is always tasty!

I like Henry's better in the summer when you can sit outside. The drinks are predictable and this is good - never a bad drink and yet never a great drink.\r

Average food and often very packed. There is nothing wrong with this location

In general I'm difficult to impress where food is concerned, but this place blew me away. I'd been to the bar on a number of occasions, though never ordered food. Wish I'd known sooner...geez.

Everything was spot on and I raved all

Recently sat outside on a lovely Sunday afternoon. The server came to the table right away and took our order for beer and wine. It took 26 min to get our order. By chance we had checked what time we had arrived as we had just finished the 4T trail (fantastic by the way).
About through our 26 min wait for beverages the server took our food order. We finally received our food 58 min. after we had arrived. The food was mediocre and the wine was the wrong thing.
I talked to the manager who simply said sorry we are having ??execution? problems with the kitchen and the wait staff.
I can tell you who should be ??executed??. Both management and the staff.
Don??t waste your time with this one. There are SSSSOOOOO many other great choices in the neighborhood!!!

So happy hour is awesome at Henry's, the food is great, portions are fantastic, prices are good and the raspberry drop is DELICIOUS!

Bad svc the last time we went though, so they are losing their edge. They told us we could go upstairs in a booth for HH and then no one came for 10 mins so we came back downstairs and then no one came for another 10 mins and finally I had to go to the bar and tell the bartender we needed svc! Irritating! Then 1 waitress comes and slaps down menus like it's our fault and another comes to take our order. After the food came we got no other service. DISAPPOINTING!

The beer selection on tap is amazing, over 100+ and I'm not even a beer drinker. Their happy hour menu and pricing is unrivaled and their specialty cocktails (my fave is the Hot & Passionate) are worth writing home about. All in all, a great bar and even better happy hour.

Pros: 100+ beers on tap, delicious well priced happy hour food

Cons: Fills up quickly, noise level can get loud

.

Love this place you have to try the beer cheddar soup consider the cup but get the bowl its so good you will lick your plate, well I did.
There food menus has a ton of styles for every taste. Beer menu is great with little descriptions if your in the mood to try something new. We have taken out-of-towner's there on a number of occasions and everyone loves it. Try eating in the bar, big booths or tables. Really cool spot.

Pros: Atmosphere, great beer selection, lots of chooses for food

Cons: sometimes service is slow

We got a gift certificate to this place, so we weren't quite sure to expect because we hadn't been there before. The name "tavern" threw me off a bit. I was thinking of dart-throwing and pool, but it was very, very nice. I have and will recommend it to others. It's a definite must see in Portland.

My husband reserved a space for 20 of our closest friends for my birthday party. He was told we would be seated in a private room at three round tables at 8pm. Our group wasn't seated until 8:45 at one long table in the middle of the restaurant. We couldn't hear any of the conversation that went on the whole night. Our food took over an hour to arrive and one of our guests got his dinner half an hour after everyone else. When the bill came we were told that we could not split it up on more than five credit cards otherwise their system would "crash." The worst part of all my husband's hamburger was undercooked and it was so dark in there he couldnt tell until he was 3/4 of the way through. He was sick all night long!!!

Had our company party last night at Henry's, party of 12. Made reservations requesting downstairs hoping it would be lively. The restaurant was busy, but they put our party in the back by ourselves. I requested we be moved, that seemed to be a problem. The manager seemed to think we wanted privacy so we could talk. We talk all day long to each other, we wanted to party! They finally put us upstairs where I originally rerquested not to be. The waiter took our drink orders and half of the drinks arrived, the other half 20 minutes later. My drink was horrible, made incorrectly. The waiter finally took our orders, everybody was served except 2 of us. 11/2 hours later we were told they did'nt have our entree's. What the fu**? Why did'nt they tell us that when they took our orders? I complained to mangement who then said they would comp $80.00 of our meal include the two entrees we had'nt received. Management also had a serious attitude problem, asking how I handled problems at my business. What does that have to do with my meal? She needs to do her job and not worry about mine. We finally received the last entree which was awful-oversalted, crappy scallops. The mangement finally had an attitude adjustment and the entire meal was comped. Sounds like Gordon Ramsey needs to visit Henry's and show them how to run a restaurant.

Hands down, this is Portland's best "anytime" bar. The food and drinks are always great and the service isn't bad too! The best part about Henry's is that it's one of those bars that is good for any and all occasions!

Pros: Awesome Happy Hour Menu!

I was having a party yesterday for a fellow employee that was leaving. I didn't think it was necessary to reserve space, but realized that I needed to. I contacted Val at Henry's and asked if she could help. She provided 2 pool tables, and almost the entire Billiards Room for our party. The room was perfect for people to mingle and walk around to talk to others. Pool players had room to play without bumping into anyone. We had our own bartender. Thank you Val and the Henry's staff.

Pros: Willing to work things out on short notice

Cons: Only about 6 beers on tap in the billiards room.

Though the happy hour is excellent, and the service fantastic, the real I go to happy hour at Henry's is for the ladies. The wait staff looks as if they had just come off a runway, who ever was in charge of hiring, god bless him! I for one will definitely be back.

I went to Henry's this weekend for my friend's birthday. We made reservations, and the place came highly recommended for it's ambiance and great food. Upon arriving for dinner (9:45pm, Friday Night...not too busy) we were lead over to our booth, squarely planted in front of the kitchen. We looked at our menus, and were greeted by our server who at the time, seemed fairly friendly. After giving her our drink order she left the table, and arrived roughly 10 minutes later with our drinks. My friends and I ordered 3 separate selections: I chose the Blackened Salmon Grilled Fish Sandwich, the birthday girl chose a Teriyaki Bowl, and my other lady friend chose the Triple Stacked Club Sandwich. All three selections turned out to be most excellent. Now at this point, you're asking yourself- Why did I give it two stars? Well, the service was incredibly disappointing. During my 1+ hour stay at Henry's I saw my waitress 4 times. Once to take drink orders, once to take the food order, once to bring back drinks/bread and once to refill our water glasses. About 40 minutes into the ordeal our server disappeared into the deep dark corners of the Tavern...to do god only knows what. She disappeared previously during the evening after bringing our drinks for about 15 minutes...during which time I watched my piping hot food sit on a warmer for no less than 10 minutes. The food was finally brought over by another server, undoubtedly a little less fresh...although still quite good. While in a spirited conversation with my friends our server approached our table for the 4th and final time to refill our glasses. After the server left we never saw her again. We waited for about 20 minutes before we made an estimate or how much the bill was for, counted out our cash and left it on the table. We could have dined and dashed, we didn't see anyone come to our table for at least another minute after....I hope that our server turned up safe eventually... though she never returned to our table...

The husband and I walked up here from the Benson (who's staff recommended it) one night when it was late and we were tired and just wanted something simple and tasty to eat. He had a burger and I had the fish sandwich with halibut (you can also choose salmon). We were both quite happy with our food. Will definitely go back next time we're in town. The place was a bit noisy but that may have been because I was tired. I did wish someone would tell the oblivious women in the next booth that the staircase was not a playground for her bratty kid.

Pros: Good food, convenient to downtown hotels.

Cons: Irresponsible parents who bring small children to what is basically a bar.

You walk into this place and it is immediately obvious that it is owned and managed by some soulless corporation (Pacific Coast Restaurants); out to impress with style over substance ? beer list aside there is very little about it which is unique or charming.. Visiting Hnery?s on a busy night can be miserable. Bar staff is overworked and hostile. They think they know a lot about beer, but they don?t ? I have a degree in viticulture. Management is young and inexperienced, so you should expect them to make bad calls when the poor over-worked wait staff messes up. Recently, a friend and I waited in the bar 40 minutes for a table. When one finally freed up we sat down. The waitress walked over and said: ?stop, wait, sit sit,? and abruptly turned around and walked away. 2 minutes later a manger walked over and told (not asked) us to leave the table because the gentlemen who were there before us had jus stepped out to smoke. However, I had seen them both sign credit cards, and the table had been wiped down. The waitress insisted that their entrees were on the way. The manager was more interested in exerting his unfortunate authority and ?being right? per his own reality than acting rationally. He continued to insist that we leave the table, and did not offer to remedy the situation by facilitating the acquisition of an alternative table. But, the beer selection is impressive. Food is so-so broadly speaking, but down right bad for the Pearl district. The crowd is young.

I went there last Friday for the b-ball game and was not happy w/ the service from our waitress. My girlfriend & I had to wait a long time for service and that was even after the crowd died down. The male bartender was friendly and so was the busboy but she seemed rude & not very helpful. The female bartender did not have very good customer svc either. I guess maybe if we were male we would've gotten good service. ???

one of the best dinner places in Portland! this is good for large groups, small groups, diverse menu, so you know you will be back to try something else next time. a large beer/wine menu. One of my favs is the crab cakes, steak and calamari. The price is good and they do not rush you so you can enjoy your email and you dont have to eat everything youve ordered in one hr. make this a place to go !

this place is a corporate dumper. the food is bad. it's not sustainable. the service is bad. anybody who loves this place or claims it is there food destination on there next trip back to portland needs an education in food.
when will people learn that restaurants like this are a scourge on the earth. a skid mark on the underwear of the restaurant industry.

oh well. order your self up a nice salmon or one of there cryovacked steaks they serve up and one of the many beers they have. don't worry about the money you spend im sure they're putting it back in the community

Service here is not good. I've been here twice in the past month. Each time the food was excellent, but the sevice was extremely lackluster.

The first time was at dinner. Waited about 15 minutes to be greeted by our server, then another 10 minutes to have our order taken. Server was rather unfriendly; couldn't even pretend to care about our dining experience. Food took a long time to come out and when it did, our appetizer came only about 30 seconds before our entrees. The ladies next to us received their entrees and didn't get the appetizers they had ordered at all. They were then asked by 3 or 4 different people whether or not they still wanted the appetizers, a question to which each time the answer was yes. Clearly many timing and communication issues.

On the plus side, the food was wonderful. I ordered the fish and chips and they were superb. Also, the calamari appetizer is a must.

I decided to give them another chance and i returned about 2 weeks later for lunch. This time our server was friendly and greeted us in good time, but 10 minutes passed before she returned to take our order. Then after ordering, we waited for at least 20 minutes for our food. Nothing difficult, half sandwiches and caesar salads.

Again though, the food was great. The turkey and avocado sandwich was perfect, and their french fries are so tasty. Also, the cornbread croutons in the ceasar salad are such a great addition!

Moral of the story: don't go here if you're in a hurry or if you want stellar service. The quality of the food will probably be enough to bring me back, but not with any frequency. This is ALL due to the quality of service.

The service was ok. The waitress didn't understand that Iced Tea should be cold, not room temperature. We ordered the gorgonzola cheese fries which were tasteless. I had the grill chicken, gorgonzola, and pear pizza. What a waste of $11. The chicken was practically non-existent, the pears were not ripe and were in chucks which were unappealing to bite into and the gorgonzola was barely there as well. They have numerous beers to choose from and I selected the Black Cherry Stout but was disappointed to find out they were out. It seemed a little weird to be out of a beer going into a weekend. I don't plan on ever going back because it was a waste of time and money.

While vacationing in Portland for our anniversary my husband and I planned a trip to Henry's after seeing the great reviews. We went for lunch and because the atmosphere is so great we felt under dressed but the staff didn't seem to mind; they were very nice and promptly seated us. Our waiter was also prompt and knowledgeable about what Henry's had to offer. We both got the Simply Grilled Copper River Salmon which was cooked perfectly and was to die for. The mashed potatoes were creamy and flavorful and the asparagus was bright and steamed just right. I'm going to say it was the best tasting, best cooked meal I've ever had and my husband agrees. The manager came by to make sure everything was great and our waiter, while not hovering, could always be found if we needed anything and tended to us with a smile on his face. They made us feel very welcomed. This experience was more romantic, inviting, fun and tasty than our official anniversary dinner at Salty's and it cost 1/2 as much. We're planning a trip back and I'm sure Henry's will be on our food list more than once.

I've been to Henry's a couple of times, and it's become a real favorite of ours to take our out-of-town guests. My father claimed the Salmon and asparagus to be among some of the best he's had; I love the BBQ brewery burger (topped with black forest ham) and the beer selection is fantastic. Guiness on nitro, and walking man's black cherry stout are among my favorites. I highly recommend Henry's and will be back. The biggest complaint I have about this place is that I had the burger the first time I went, and it was so good I haven't been able to bring myself to try anything new in all the times I've been back since. I guess that's not a bad thing.

I've been to Henry's a couple of times, and it's become a real favorite of ours to take our out-of-town guests. My father claimed the Salmon and asparagus to be among some of the best he's had; I love the BBQ brewery burger (topped with black forest ham) and the beer selection is fantastic. Guiness on nitro, and walking man's black cherry stout are among my favorites. I highly recommend Henry's and will be back. The biggest complaint I have about this place is that I had the burger the first time I went, and it was so good I haven't been able to bring myself to try anything new in all the times I've been back since.

Pros: The food is great, the beer selection is awesome.

Cons: none

I have been there twice, both for special occasions without reservations either time and got seated almost instantly both times. Both occsions I had a great time, great service, great food. My boyfriend really likes the chicken, and I liked the seafood. And loved the salads!

This place is funny as it seems inconsistent with the food. Generally the seafood entrees are good although it seems as though depending on what night you go it will depend on how good your entree (which you had the last time) will be and now tastes very different! They seem to need consistency in the kitchen staff which lacks at times sadly ... The calamari however is wonderful! A definite must if you try this place out. As for the service it generally leaves something to be desired . ...I don't know if the servers and some hostesses really just don't like their jobs (as we've witnessed the last 2 times we've been there)--barely smile and are sooooooo darned slow. We had to ask 2x for bread and it came when our entrees were served! You may also want to ask for them to be easy on the salt. I had a chicken dish that was too salty and inedible. Too bad Henry's isn't as good as it used to be :(

I've been to Henry's for a couple of beers and some bar snacks, which are excellent, a couple of times but never had dinner. As a birthday treat for a friend I went early on a Saturday, the place was packed but we were seated quickly and served well but a little slowly. The food was excellent, not a wide range of choices but adequate. The sushi appetizers are huge, one for two people is plenty. Drink prices and service are reasonable. Not a standout, but good quality and value, not a disappointment in any regard.

Me and my boyfriend went here on a Saturday night, it was valentines weekend so it was really busy. We had to wait about an hour to be seated, but we just went to the bar to get drinks and an appetizer while we waited. The cocktail waitress was really great, always checking to see if we needed anything. I loved the Martini menu and my boyfriend loved the beer menu. There were soo many choices! After we were seated in the actual restaurant, our dinner was really great and came pretty fast. It was a nice, romantic and enjoyable place. I would definitely come here again and recommend it to anyone else. The prices were great, nothing too expensive, our bill after 2 martinis, 2 beers, and 2 appetizers and, we each got fish entrees, was just around $70.00. Great place!

For my daughter's 21rst b-day we made Tuesday night dinner reservations for 8 people at 6:15. We later called during the day and added 1 person which the mgr messed up and changed our reservation to 9:00pm instead of 9 people for 6:15. Consequently we were seated upstairs by the adjoining door to the bar and pool table area, where there is a holding area for dirty dishes to be stacked---we heard clanking of dishes during our entire dinner---served to us by a woman that acted as she though she had somewhere else she'd rather be---even though I told her it was a special dinner. She was better suited to be working in a fast food place. When we got our bill, on it was a $25 service charge, as well as the standard 18% gratuity for large groups---there were 2 total amounts---of course we ignored the service charge amount and went with the 18% tip. The building is nice, very cool atmosphere, the food is good---I don't think I'll bring a large crowd here again though.

Maybe it helps that I used to live a few short blocks away, but Henry's is one of my favorite places to go grab a bite when I'm downtown and hungry! My boyfriend and I have our set meals - mine is the BBQ Chicken Pizza (only $2.95 during happy hour and $10.95 on the regular menu) and his is the Veggie Burger sans avacado (made in-house and incomparable to a regular veggie burger, ie. Boca Burger, etc.). Not only is the food incredibly tasty and the happy hour menu an excellent deal, the furnishings and ambiance of Henry's is so warm and inviting.

Tip: Henry's is a great place to catch a football game - plush leather chairs that you can re-arrange around the plasma screen TVs upstairs + food, beer and pool - what better way to spend the afternoon!

I was looking forward to spending time at an "upscale restaurant". Unfortunately, the brown wife-beater wearing, slouching, trashy, need a nap, meth-look male sitting in the booth across from us took away from any thought of "upscale" that I had. I guess I expected too much.

Best place in Portland to start off the night. Stop by Henry's for happy hour at about 10pm, eat a great huge dinner for about 10 bucks and decide on the next place to party! PS WE LOVE THE DOORMEN!!!

This is a great place on the weekends if you want to mingle with 20 somethings or people watch. The bar is a great place to go to watch a game or relax after a game. Drinks are always good and the food is far better than most bar food in town. The only bad side is they close at midnight on Friday and Saturday.

Lots of people hate this place, but I love it. The service can be lackluster some nights, depending on who is serving you, and at times, it can be really really crowded. Nonetheless, this place has a huge up-side. It is large, has a big screen, pool tables, good food, great happy hour food specials, plenty of seating both downstairs and upstairs, attractive clientele, a good patio for the summertime, and a monstrous beer list.

This bar seems like it would be a good time, but we went on a Friday night where all you did was get knocked around. Not my favorite activity! Even the servers and bar tenders told you to move every five seconds because it was too crowded. It was a nice atmosphere for singles and they had a lot of drinks but i couldn't even talk or relax in this place, not my favorite.

If you are looking for the best assortment of beer in town, this is your spot! I believe that there are about 100 beers on tap, so it could take you a lifetime (or a few years) to try them all. My advice would be to stop by on a week night or an afternoon, because this place gets very crowded on the weekends. Definitely a "hot spot" for younger crowds.

PROS: beer selection, atmosphere
CONS: overcrowded

Amiable staff. However, we were disappointed with the experience in the bar area on the first visit.... BUT the next time in we sat on the restaurant side. WOW, what a difference! The service was great and a whole different climate. Much better! Why wait for a table and pay half price for half the amount of food at happy hour? The resaurant was a great experience and great value. Also, I think they take reservations in the restaurant now. I'll definitely go back again soon! :)

I've been back to this establishment too many times to count. The happy hour is one of the best in Portland, Although there are no drink specials the food specials are to be desired. Their natural organic cheeseburger is mouth-watering. My favorites on the happy hour food menu is the Orange Chicken, California Roll and the Gorgonzola Fries. Sit on the floor or up in the balcony section with a view of the huge flatscreen and brewery tanks. During the summer and spring the outdoor seating is bustling with conversation. The restaurant section is excellent. A dark moody setting , excellent drinks (beer drinker's livers will shake at the sight of their beer selections) and food that will give you any reason to come back placed a block away from burnside in Portland's Pearl District.

I've been there twice, both during the weekday lunch hour. First time, the service was ok, but the food was nasty (they called it pad thai, but this absolutely was not pad thai). Second time (there was only a second time because I was given a gift card), the service was very rude and pretentious, and the food was substandard (orange chicken wasn't even as good as the Safeway deli). Our waitress spilled a side of sauce all over a businessman sitting next to us. It's very crowded and highly overrated.

My wife ate here last night for New Year's Eve. We had a great experience. The beer selection, as mentioned, is great. The staff was good, and the food was phenominal. My wife had the fillet, and it was as good as any steak I have ever had in my life. I had the scallops, which were great. The Ahi appetizer was mouth watering. I highly recommend.

Me and my wife have frequented Henry's maybe about eight times. If you come here on a weekend good luck getting a table or a spot at the bar. It's maybe a 20 minute way for a couple seats. The beer selection is unmatched. Period. Over 100 brews to choose from. That alone is worth coming here for. The service is slow, regardless of the day of the week. The atmosphere in the bar area is classy, vibrant, and upbeat but not chaotic. Another great plus is the billiards room upstairs with it's own bar. Try to find a place like that anywhere in Portland. You can't. It's non-smoking which makes hanging out at Henry's that much more enjoyable. The happy hour menu is moderately priced and the food is a little above decent. The must have on that menu are the gargonzola fries. Absolutely the best in town.

My husband and I have been to Henry's 4 times since it opened, and each time was the same experience - we wait about an hour to order and recieve an appetizer and beer. It doesn't matter how crowded the place is, or what the time of day, they do not have it together to get even a salad to a person in under 45 minutes. Drinks only work, but forget ordering food.
