BIZNOTE: Opening day for Harry’s Beach House on Alki

(WSB photos)

Eight and a half months after we first reported that the ex-Alki Tully’s would become a restaurant called Harry’s Beach House, it’s opening day. As our photos show, the space at 2676 Alki SW has undergone a thorough transformation.

It’s the second Seattle restaurant for Julian Hagood, who runs Harry’s Fine Foods on Capitol Hill. As the name implies, the decor is highlighted by a seaside/nautical theme:

As for the food – Harry’s Beach House is serving brunch and dinner for starters. The brunch menu includes biscuits and gravy, steak and eggs, pancakes, granola, and schnitzel; the dinner menu includes fish, beef, pork, chicken, and vegetarian entrees. Hours for fall and winter are 10 am to 10 pm Wednesdays-Sundays, closed Mondays and Tuesdays, with changes expected when the warm-weather season arrives.

    Menu and website? 

    • WSB October 16, 2019 (3:00 pm)

      No website that I can find so far. We have some bad phone photos of the menu, will add them later if I can get a chance to clean them up.

        Looks nice and the menu (as anecdotally described) sounds good. Can’t wait to try it, and I wish them success.

    Wow. Gorgous! I picked the wrong year to give up drinking! …but I can indulge in the food.

    I went there tonight.  Amazing place.   The food was excellent, but more than that, the setting and energy is totally awesome.   I highly recommend Harry’s for a great evening out.  All evening.   Full bar, great food including small plates and entrees, desserts for those that are inclined.    And above all, owners that care about your total experience.  Go!  If there is a short line, well, it’s more than worth the wait.

    It’s gorgeous and I look forward to trying it!

    Went last night – super friendly staff; welcoming environment and great food.  Had the burger – was awesome.  Thanks for joining the neighborhood!

    Looks fun! Just confirming: the audience for this place is adults, right? Not kids/families?     

    • WSB October 17, 2019 (2:00 pm)

      It’s a restaurant.

    • OnAlkiAve October 17, 2019 (10:01 pm)

      It’s family friendly with a huge family style table in the middle for large parties and communal dining. It’s about as welcoming of a place as you could ask for. Budget wise I think it’s pretty reasonable for a restaurant on the beach with a great view, an experienced staff and great food and cocktails. I can’t wait to go back :)

    I wish I could get excited about Harry’s, but I must say that they have not been good Alki neighbors.  Throughout their remodeling they were running power tools as early as 5:30am creating a significant noise issue.  I witnessed one of their workers hit a truck on the residential street and the workers took off.  Finally now that they are open, they are storing their trash on the street with bags of trash over flowing into the road and sidewalk.  This is another legal infraction and adds to the list of things they are doing to loose Alki respect.

        The one in the alley appears to be a construction dumpster.
        (a) I trust you have brought up your concerns with the business directly. What did they say?
        (b) If you think city law is being violated, SDCI is very aggressive about investigating complaints, which you can file online.

        I checked the city record for this address going back 15 years and it doesn’t show any complaints having been filed.

  • Alki Neighbor October 20, 2019 (4:50 pm)

    a)The hit and run is being processed through insurance and the workers were approached directly as well.  We did reach out via the contact us link on Harry’s website about the trash with no reply yet.  b) What we really want is for Harry’s to resolve the trash in the street/sidewalk issue without penalizing them first.  Hopefully bringing their attention to the matter is enough and they can thrive here.  I want to thank you for the link to file a complaint which we will use in a couple days if it looks like this is a permanent not temporary situation.

      Thank you for voicing your concerns. We have been open only 5 days and did not correctly estimate how much trash we would generate. We have increased our collection starting twice weekly this week.the mirror on on the neighbors vehicle was not a hit and run. It was an accident made by someone driving a large truck that was unaware of what happened until the owners of the vehicle called me and I immediately gave them our insurance information. There seems to be a lot of speculation and negativity instead of cheering on a new small business. Please be patient while we work out the kinks, we are over the moon to be open finally as serving ethical and delicious food to the neighborhood. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
