For fine cuisine that benefits from an overall “Farm to Table” philosophy, visitors can head over to Henry’s. Boasting a vintage warm interior with a long bar and an accompanying collection of booths and tables, and a commercially central locale along Independence Blvd., Henry’s is a convenient destination for a perfect mix of casual and fine dining cuisine.
Henry’s serves up brunch, lunch and dinner, and each menu features a range of options that are predominantly inspired by the restaurant’s southern and coastal locale. Lunchtime visitors can dive into farm-style entrees, like hanger steak, rotisserie chicken and dirty gravy, or Hank’s Mom’s Meatloaf, or feast on two-handed sandwiches like the Heritage Farms BLT, the open-face ribeye sandwich, or the Wilmingtonian Burger with Southern pimento cheese, Duke’s mayo, lettuce, fried green tomato and bacon. For dinnertime entrees, try the seafaring dishes like the lump crab cakes, the flounder platter, or the buttermilk fried jumbo shrimp, or go for a locally sourced farm dish like the hearty pot roast or stuffed pork loin. There’s also a delectable collection of salads and starters for something lighter, as well as a full “bar book” with a nice range of beers, wines and cocktails. Slightly elevated but with a down-home flair, Henry’s is a fine addition to Wilmington’s growing farm to table movement.
