Pleasant Beach Village announces extended curbside service

No need to come inside, thank you.

Restaurants at Pleasant Beach Village have announced their decision to extend curbside pick-up and home delivery options, including of beer and wine, in response to the growing concerns over the COVID-19 virus’s continued spread.

Pleasant Beach Village restaurants, including Hammy’s Burgers, The Marketplace, and Joe’s Restaurant —scheduled to formally open later this spring — all deployed online ordering for takeout and curbside takeout late last week, in anticipation of Governor Jay Inslee’s Monday announcement temporarily restricting restaurants and bars to take-out and delivery options only, according to Pleasant Beach Village spokeswoman Andrea Mackin.

“It’s particularly tough on small businesses like we tend to have on the island, and equally tough when it comes to the service industry,” she said. “We are encouraging our staff to stay hopeful and positive and look for ways to support each other through this. We’re also doing all we can to keep everyone employed.”

In preparation for the possibility of in-restaurant dining to also be suspended, all three restaurants implemented home delivery on Bainbridge Island as well, Mackin said.

Management and staff spent last weekend ramping up for a busy week of online ordering and delivery by preparing protocols to ensure top sanitation and quality standards would extend to takeout and delivery for all three restaurants.

“We are grateful to have the support and patronage of our community at all times, but especially during times like these,” said Pleasant Beach Village general manager Joe Raymond. “Our twin priorities are keeping our staff and members of the public safe, while continuing to provide economic security for our employees by keeping them employed.”

Employees will move between the various entities to make sure that staffing meets the demands of takeout, curbside pick-up, and delivery, he added.

Specified parking spaces in front of Hammy’s and The Marketplace have been designated for curbside pick-up, and residents will be able to remain in their vehicle when picking up an order.

Because of its limited food menu, Earth & Vine Wine Bar will suspend operations temporarily and reopen as soon as the governor’s order is lifted.

Beer and wine may be ordered online at both The Marketplace and Joe’s for pick-up and delivery with proof of age and a signature required upon delivery.

Direct online ordering for pick-up and delivery is available at: Hammy’s Burgers (open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily) via www.hammys burgers.com; The Marketplace (open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, for beer and wine from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.) via www.marketplaceat pleasantbeach.com; and Joe’s Restaurant (online ordering only from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. daily) via www.pleasantbeachvillage.com/joesrestaurant.

Guests at The Inn at Pleasant Beach, the property’s 22-room boutique hotel, will also have access to in-room dining from the trio of restaurants.

Online ordering will be available to all hotel guests, with delivery to guest rooms at The Inn, which has also temporarily waived the seven-day prior cancellation policy, hoping to encourage guests to take advantage of season specials and the opportunity to get away to fresh air and the resort’s beaches.
