Bits & Bites: Henriksen Fisheries Breaks Ground

Henriksen Fisheries broke ground Oct. 7 on the next generation of its business. Charlie Henriksen said he hopes to have construction completed on a new, 3,200-square-foot processing plant and retail outlet by April. The building at the corner of Highway 42 and Old Stage Road will be made primarily of metal siding and will consolidate the fishery operations that have been split between two rental locations. 


Baileys Harbor will have another dining option this winter after Sarah and Scott Bennet – now settled in as the new owners of the Harbor Fish Market & Grille – have announced they’ll be staying open for lunch and dinner five days a week this winter. The restaurant will be closed Mondays and Thursdays. 

“It has been a very busy first season for us,” Sarah said. “We’ve been plug-and-playing every position in the restaurant, which has been great for Scott and I.”

After Labor Day, the Bennets unveiled a refreshed menu with a few new fall-focused options, and they’ll continue tweaking the menu and the bar this winter to retain the best of the restaurant while making it their own. Visit at 8080 Hwy 57 in Baileys Harbor.
