Gig Harbor Original Pancake House opens and replaces Harvester
The Original Pancake House is officially open in Gig Harbor.
It took over the location of the former Harvester restaurant at 5601 Soundview Dr., which had been in business for 38 years.
The Harvester closed on June 30, 2021 when previous owner Kirby Tweten retired.
The Original Pancake House opened on May 30. It is open seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Although the restaurant is known for its pancakes, it offers a variety of breakfast foods. The menu offers other breakfast items such as French toast, waffles, omelettes and more.
“Community members have expressed excitement about having another breakfast option in Gig Harbor,” Kevin Freeman, Eastern Washington regional manager for The Original Pancake House, told The Gateway. “It was great to see people here. We were told that they appreciate that we make all our pasta and fresh fruit slices daily. »
Local company representatives did not respond to inquiries from The Gateway about activity in the first few weeks of operation at the Gig Harbor location or any changes they made to the property.
The Original Pancake House also has locations in Pierce County in Tacoma and the Puyallup area.
The Gateway announced in December that the Gig Harbor location would be managed by BTE Management Co., which also manages the Tacoma location.
Tax records showed Gig Harvest LLC paid $1.35 million for the property, The Gateway reported, and major shareholder Carl Swanes signed a lease with Original Pancake House.
