Gig Harbor diners will soon have a new restaurant to enjoy breakfast and lunch.
The restaurant Netshed No. 9, operated by husband-wife duo Chef Thad Lyman and Katie Doherty of Brix 25, is tentatively scheduled to open March 15, according to John Moist, the General Manager for Arabella’s Landing Marina.
Netshed No. 9 will be located at 3313 Harborview Dr., the former Red Rooster Café and Collectables locatioin, and will serve breakfast and lunch.
Moist said he and Stan Stearns, who owns the building with his wife Judy, are thrilled with the new addition.
“[Lyman and Doherty] have years and years of experience running and owning successful restaurants,” he said. “We’re very excited.”

To cater to the breakfast and lunch crowd, the restaurant will focus on prompt service, but he said customers should expect the same quality of service offered at Brix 25.
“Come and be surprised and thrilled. Make it a place you want to come back to,” Moist said.
He said the building’s décor will be kept simple with a mix of both modern and rustic touches.
The restaurant’s name pays homage to the historical building’s original name, Novak Net Shed, which was built in 1910.
Moist said the net shed was originally Tony Novak’s family home and was remodeled in the 1940s. It was later remodeled in 1999 by Pete Dara.
The Red Rooster Café closed in December after the building lease was revoked.
