We go here for happy hour several times a year. It's best in the spring/summer when you can sit outside in the sun on the deck. Excellent happy hour menu with several offerings. Yummy drinks as well. Get the sushi roll!!!!

Dropped in here after cruising the area to wet our whistle. Place is huge, and dark, and comfy. Multiple tv screens going watching march Madness. No food this day but I saw alot of folks snacking and enjoying. They have an awesome beer selection and a nice cocktail menu. The apple mojito hit a home run for me.

The one place we could escape the loud crowds during happy hour on St. Paddy's day (who knew Portlanders were so Irish?). Yes, Guinness was on special, but the crowd in the bar area were mature, and mellow. They also have Deschutes' Abyss available making me very happy. Went well with the endamame and the waffle fries (and I splurged... More

The place is nice and it have an atmosphere of history and legacy. The food is decent and the drinks are ok. Not sure if I would go back but it is a good option if you are in town

Henry's serves food that is a step above average pub food, and they do it well. The location is primo, and they seem to use locally available ingredients for the specials.

The place is larger than it looks and they have several pool tables if your into that.. I liked the TV's on most every table and several big screens to... More

Henry's tavern is a great place to grab a bite to eat after a day of book Browsing at Powell's bookstore. Burgers are cooked to perfection, juicy and delicious! We were told it would be a 25 minute wait, but it was only about ten minutes. The Macaroni and Cheese burger was a hit with my teenager. We were a... More

Made a reservation via OpenTable, and we were promptly seated when we arrived. The waiter was "spacy", i.e. He wasn't tracking well, and seemed very confused about the drink orders. He didn't get much better advising us regarding the menu, or answering our questions. The kitchen (or waiter) got the order wrong for one of the five of us, the... More

I had a dinner meeting here for a group of five coworkers. It worked very well as we had a comfortable booth and could easily hear each other. Great beer selection with over 100 available. We liked the chicken strip appetizer. The onion ring tower was pretty good, crispy but a little lacking in flavor. My burger was juicy on... More
