Henry's 12th Street Tavern Ratings and Reviews

Although we had a reservation we had to wait for 15 minutes for our table, then it was another 20 minutes before our server arrived. Food took a very long time to arrive and then isn't was only warm. We have dined here a number of times without any complaints. Hopefully, this time was an exception - they did seem to have a number of large parties, which also made it very noisy.

We've been to Henry's several times and decided to take our out of town guests to a place with great beer and cocktails. We were looking for a laid back fun place that still provided a good environment.
The food and drink were good and we had a nice time. The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the service. We had a reservation and ended up waiting for almost 15 minutes even though there were 8-10 tables and booths available and open. I specifically requested a table and not a booth and when we were finally seated she took us straight to a booth. I paused and she said "Oh is a booth OK? If not, you could wait for a little bit longer for a table." I already felt bad for our guests since we had already been waiting, so I said it was fine.
We had barely been there 45 minutes and everyone was on their second drink and finishing up dinner. I was just about to order my second drink when our waitress brought over the check and asked if I wanted a to go box while I was still chewing... I felt rushed even though several of the other tables and booths were still open and free. I ordered my second drink and finished my dinner and about 5 minutes after my second drink came so dropped off another check. We probably would have stayed there drinking if we didn't feel rushed out. We ended up going to another place for more drinks afterards.

Both the booze and food were amazing and reasonably priced. We all ordered different items and tasted each other's plates and drinks and were impressed with each one. We have found our new go to place in the pearl district.

Our waiter was less than friendly and really gave the sense that he would rather have been anywhere else but there. He made the experience less enjoyable and caused everyone in our group to feel like we had to be careful if we had any request.

Our waitress Cassidy was so polite, attentive, friendly and nice that it made the special meeting of my sweetheart with the parents that much more less nerve wracking :) Could be a little more quiet for such affairs but it was 7:30pm on a Friday so to be expected. I hadn't had an entree or non-happy hour there in years and enjoyed the food too. Thank you!

Henry's used to be a favorite of mine when it opened years ago. I was in town on business and decided to take a group of coworkers out for dinner. The service was great and the facility has been well maintained but the food was awful.
Waffle fries were covered in thick goop and had no flavor.
Chicken tenders were drenched in grease and over cooked.
Fish and chips were barely warm. The fish was actually tough and the fries were bland and cold.
I could go on but why bother...

Definitely needs more vegetarian and vegan options. The restaurant is sorely lacking in this area. Please, more gorgonzola cheese on the +1.50 upgrade to add to the waffle fries when ordering a sandwich. There was just a dribble of the sauce.

We had a group of 12, 5 of which we kids, and one adult in a wheelchair. The hostess and waitress were very accommodating regarding the children and the wheelchair. The waitress was attentive and very nice. She even set up candles on the cake we had brought, lit them, and brought it out to the table. I go to Henry's whenever I'm in town because of the food and on Sundays for the awesome bloody mary bar and $5 mimosas.

We loved Henry Weinhard Beer in the 70's. OK, we are old. We did not expect much of a corporate restaurant chain. We were surprised. 120 drafts on tap, indoor and outdoor eating, great service and very good food. All but the sauteed ceaser salad were extremely good. THis is not gourmet fare, but a good dinner, fairly priced and a good time.

We reserved a table for a bachelorette party. The server was great and attentive. The food was good. Not a huge cocktail or wine list but if you're looking for beer, obviously this is the place to go. Only down side was one person in the group had a big piece of plastic in their hummus. I'm not sure how the kitchen staff could miss that. The server and manager were quick to apologize and gave two big desserts for the group, on the house. All in all, it was worth it and helped make the night great! Thank you!!

We love Henry's! We were seated upstairs at a somewhat awkward table, so our experience wasn't quite as wonderful as usual - but it is always worth it! Great location, delicious food with lots of choices and fabulous libations.

nice selection for Sunday brunch either the buffet or off the regular menu. Father's day wasn't crowded, but it seemed to take a little long to get the order from the kitchen to the table. Once there, it was presented very well and tasted great. Very nicely done.

Henry's is an historic building, old brick, rather dark inside, but cozy. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. We had a wedge salad (good), tempura cheese curds (OMG), and burgers (cooked med-well as requested and delicious). Their beer and cider menu is extensive, and some seasonal selections. Also worth mentioning that it is located near Powell's and lots of boutique shopping.

We loved our meal here. The menu is diverse, something for everyone. The cheese curds with pepper jelly were awesome! This place is great for gatherings, or dinner before an event downtown. If you are going for a romantic or quiet dinner, this isn't the place.
Henry's is a consistent Portland dining staple.
A large menu and a large restaurant combine for a great Portland night out. Henry's has long been a Portand food staple and will continue for many years. Their menu has a wide range and the Gorgonzola fries are a must have app. I never have anything bad at henrys however I am never leaving there ranting and raving about it. You know what you are going to get with Henry's and we often take out of towners here for dinner. It's reliable and pleasing to people with a vast variety of tastebuds. Until we meet again...

Wouldnt go for brunch again. Everything had been out a while and was cold, soggy, dried out. My daughter was rubbing the fresh fruit on her cookie to soften it. Bacon was good but was very disappointed of quality for 25.00 a person and didn't include anything to drink. Shouldn't have ordered off menu.
I ordered a toasted chicken club sandwich and apparently toasted meant slathered with a stick of butter and warmed, and it had an inch of mayo on each side of the bread with the smallest piece of chicken, which was about 1/4 the size of the bread. My son's chicken fingers were crisp to nearly burned. My daughter had the brunch buffet and I realize a buffet is always a gamble, but this was worse than usual. The server saw me scraping mayo off the bread and saw the huge pile on my plate with most of the bread left, and never asked how the meal was. Would not return.

Service was noteable. We asked to be moved due to large, vocal group next to us, and hostess gladly moved us to much quieter area. Server was quite knowledgeable about beers and ales on list and gave good recommendations.
Delicious and huge portions
I had not been to Henry's in a long time.
I was attending a play at the Gerding Theater, 1 block away.
I easily made OpenTable reservations for 3, and we were seated immediately upon arrival.
We ordered 2 entries and split them among the 3 of us.
The large portions of salmon and chicken were moist, tender, perfectly cooked. The mashed potatoes were unusual and delicious. I really thought I was done with mashed potatoes, but I loved these. The asparagus was also a large portion and cooked just right.
I will return.
Great beer on tap
Food is ok....my salmon was absolutely terrific, but my husband's pizza was bland, flavorless. My salad didn't arrive before my meal, it actually went to the wrong person at our table, then when we told the waitress that my salad was missing, it never arrived until our dinner came. Very limited menu....most things are fried or sauced....i wouldn't recommend it other than for a pub style dinning experience...
I decided to come here for my birthday this year, and have dined at Henrys at the past so was very excited to come back. Upon arrival, the staff was friendly and went ahead and seated me at our table even though I was a couple of minutes early. It took 30 minutes and telling the hostess that we still haven't been seen yet by our waiter, for her to show up and take drink orders. There wasn't even water on the table! I decided to just let it go since they were busy, but when our food arrived one of my friends dish didn't come out until 10 minutes after everyone else, so they just had to sit there and watch the rest of us eat our food. We had to ask 3 times for more silverware and they never came by to refill our water glasses. I'm not an unreasonable person and realize that sometimes people just have a bad night, but I was pretty disappointed in Henrys-- I've always enjoyed their food and have never had issues in the past but I likely will not be returning. Hopefully they can improve their service in the future!
I came for my 22nd birthday with my dad for lunch and it was his first time at Henry's and he loved it! Our server Austin was great and he was so nice and friendly. Then I came later that evening with a bunch of my friends and we went to the bar and it was such a blast! The music was great, the staff was fun and helpful and the food is without question AMAZING!! I'm from Los Angeles and have been to a ton of nice restaurants but Henry's is by far my favorite restaurant to go to and my favorite bar to go to. Whenever anyone asks me to recommend a restaurant to them, I never hesitate to say Henry's. Thank you for always making my visits wonderful!!
