I’ve been here under about 3 different managers/chefs, and the selection of bottled beers has always been impressive - a wide selection of micros and imports, and different from the other restaurants in the county. (And the selections on tap have always been a couple of macrobrews.) The Indian food has generally been very good, if a bit pricey. (Although Mount Vernon does now have a second Indian place.) On the other hand, the service has been what you might charitably call relaxed. Let me spell it out - I’ve never had service I thought was "fast" - usually attentive, often friendly, sometimes really helpful. But not a place to go if you don’t have time to kill.

Not the best beer stop by any means, but I added it for anyone who is traveling in the area. It is one of two places within the Mt. Vernon/Gambier area that provides a descent number of micro’s to choose from (the other place being The Village Market in Gambier, which is already listed on RB). The beers are mostly regional micros with some out of state beer and some imports (up to 10 different Great Lakes brews, Saporro, Erie Brewing stuff, Young’s, Sierra Nevada, Paulaner, and some more typical stuff). Although I didn’t see any of it last night, I had a Rogue I2PA there last year. The real reason I go to this place is for the Indian food. This area of Ohio is not very culturally diverse at all, and Henry’s provides a nice little gem of an Indian restaurant. Descent prices (20 dollars without tip for a full entree, an appetizer, and a microbrew). Big meal portions, nice wait staff and owners (though neither know much about beer), good service. If
