As waiting diners chomp on complimentary salted in-shell peanuts, the chefs at O'Henry's fill lonely tables with eats from the menu of American classics and Cajun-style dishes. Chefs season 12-ounce Cajun rib-eye steaks with bayou spices before grilling them to guests' preferred pinkness ($16.99), and crispy fried catfish platters arrive flanked by a steamy entourage of hot fries and creole coleslaw ($14.99). Dinner designers create their own half-pound steak burgers, crafting paeans to backyard cookouts or edible replicas of bygone hibachis from five specialty bun choices and toppings including pesto aioli, southwest cilantro sauce, and blue cheese crumbles ($8.99). Welcome the Reuben's thinly slice corned beef, piled on rye and layered with swiss cheese, thousand-island dressing, and savory sauerkraut ($9.99) as a tableside emissary from O'Henry's menu of 15 New York–style deli sandwiches.
Burning the late-night oil for almost 30 years, O'Henry's dishes its full menu of satisfying fare until midnight. Thirsty diners can top off meals with one of O'Henry's libations, such as the coconut Beach Punch spiked with Bacardi coconut rum ($6.95), a concoction that reminds sippers of first proms or last PTA meetings.
O'Henrys has serving guests since its founding in 1982. Owner Rhonda Conley, with more than 20 years at O'Henry's under her belt, works to keep the tradition of the restaurant alive at both locations. Waiters serve plates of freshly ground filet mignon burgers, hearty steaks, and signature Monica cream sauce dishes. Outside, an outdoor balcony scattered with tabletops wraps around the restaurant. The eatery boasts private dining rooms for parties of up to 25 people. It also treats guests to a free new york strip steak if they can prove it's their birthday with a valid ID or by showing video tapes of them not celebrating their birthday the previous 364 days.
