Henry's has one of the best priced food happy hours in the area. Their mac 'n cheese, California rolls, and pizza are all decent and around $2 or $3 each. It's also worth mentioning that they have well over 100 beers on tap, so if you're looking for something other than the usual handful of microbrews you find at most bars in Portland, Henry's certainly won't disappoint. The beers are expensive though.
The Upside: You can't beat the quality, variety and cost of the happy hour food menu. Great location, great building and an overall high energy vibe. The beer selection is second to none- 100+ on tap and most of the best micro brews from around the country. Also, the extended hours is a great thing.
The Downside: Service is consistently slow and non engaging. I find sitting at the bar to be worse service than sitting on the patio or one of the tables near the bar. Bartenders are so swamped or something that they never come over to take your order. Very frustrating. You will never feel like a local at this place even if you are there every night. Wait staff will not recognize you and every time I am there, I am sitting next to traveling businessmen from out of State or Oregonians from other parts of our State.
The incredible quality and quantity of beer is offset by the ridulously high price for the beer. No happy hour price for beers, which is tragic because the normal price is out of control. It also bugs me that you cannot order from the happy hour menu from the restaurant. You must be in the bar.
Henry's has an awe-inspiring beer selection and really good food at really inexpensive prices. The downsides are the negligence of the wait staff and the clientèle. If it were not so crowded, it wouldn't be such a problem, but I solve both of these issues by sitting at the bar. The bar also has an ultra neat chiller built into the top to set your beer and keep it cool!
Great happy hour menu and hours, pleasent when it's not busy, but the service is usually slow, "nose in the air" crowd, and now I'm just being picky, but they won't change the channel on the big screen, even for the big game.
Redeemed by the huge beer selection and ice bar - However, I usually leave regretting being so close to so many snobs. Maybe you can stomach the clientelle to get that beer you can't find anywhere else, but I find it a bit difficult. And, you get what you pay for - none of those beers are cheap.
