What do you need to know about Harry’s at the Harbor in Adriatica Village?

Let’s let the owners tell the story: “Once upon a time… in a land called Fort Worth at a place specializing in Information Technology (IT); Harry and Jan met and eventually were married in 1987. They were blessed with two beautiful daughters named Mandy and Kristin. Their IT jobs eventually led them to a new, exciting land of Stonebridge Ranch in McKinney in 1998.”

Did you know? Daughter Mandy eventually graduated from McKinney North (2007) and Kristin graduated from McKinney Boyd (2010).

Yes, but how did you eventually dock at the Harbor and start a restaurant?

“As the years went by, it came to pass that Harry achieved 34 years in IT Management and Customer Service; he desired and dreamed about owning his own business and leave the corporate world far behind while Jan continued in this realm of work.

“Harry and Jan have shared a love of competing in and being spectators in athletic sports since their childhood; and with their German and Czech heritage also enjoy food and spirits. They take great pleasure in being patrons at good local restaurants sharing a meal with family and friends while catching a game or sporting event on TV to relax.

Thus, the dream of owning a business developed into an idea to create an establishment that they would find irresistible: great food, spirits, family friendly, clean-appealing atmosphere, excellent service, ability to catch a game on TV with locality to Stonebridge Ranch and easy access for the McKinney community overall. So they contacted some friends of theirs, (who together have more than 50 years in the restaurant business) to discuss teaming together to create a restaurant that would provide all of this at reasonable prices.”

The story won’t be complete until you and your family visit Harry’s at the Harbor in McKinney. Make time to take photos in Adriatica Village.

SECRET DINER REPORT: What do we suggest? Well, try Brunch of course. Brunch runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. … The Harbor Omelet with smoked salmon, the homemade potato pancakes, chorizo, bacon were hits for breakfast.

Want the Adriatica Breakfast? The chef will make you olive oil – infused couscous sautéed with Mediterranean chorizo then topped with two fried eggs with grilled flatbread.

If you can’t wait for brunch on Sunday, you can always go to Harry’s at the Harbor for a cheeseburger. Burgers are served with your choice of french fries, sweet potato fries, potato cakes, or side salad. Burgers are cooked medium, medium well or well done.

The menu is fun, and the meals can fill you up. You can keep it light with salads. When in Adriatica Village, you can’t go wrong with the flatbreads – The Italian, The Mediterranean, Chicken Pesto, Veggie, Buffalo or even the Philly.

Just want to visit the Harbor at night? You could try the appetizers … the Village Fondue, Neighborhood Nachos, New Zealand mussels to name a few … We also liked the Calamari, Cajun style gumbo, Wings and the Ravioli, but what do we know. We were hungry after a walk around Stonebridge. Ask about the after-dinner drink specials.

Not ready to bait your hook yet? Sometimes we just go for dessert: Creme Brulee, Strawberry Shortcake … but, if you like chocolate, you might be tempted by the TRUFFLE MOUSSE 🙂 with layers of moist sponge cake, chocolate cake, chocolate mousse and chocolate icing. drizzled with our homemade sweet bourbon sauce and some whip cream on top.
