Food and drink will be available again around the clock on Grays Harbor when Denny’s Restaurant on Heron Street reopens in mid-August.
“We will have a soft opening on August 17, most likely in the evening,” Prashant Sharan, the area manager for the new owner of the local franchise, Ajay Keshap, in an email.
The restaurant has been closed for several years and last operated as an America’s Diner. Keshap purchased the Denny’s after a proposed purchase by another Denny’s franchisee fell through.
The complete remodel and reopening was delayed for a brief time while contractors removed asbestos found on the site.
Construction recently resumed. Keshap owns 20 Denny’s restaurants statewide. The restaurant will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“We look forward to have a blast with Denny’s fans out there,” Sharan said.
