After working and being around restaurants for many years, John and his Wife, Wanda, had dreamed of opening their own restaurant. The perfect opportunity presented itself in the Dana Point Harbor in the spring of 1984. The Hicks decided to relocate from San Francisco to Dana Point and opened the Harbor Grill. With John managing the restaurant and Wanda taking care of the day-to-day business, Harbor Grill was an instant success.
Congratulations to the Harbor Grill team! We wish you many years of continued success!
