General Manager & Managing Partner

Gary Harkness left Northern Ireland for Bradenton in 1980 where he was a rear gunner on a 
milk float in Belfast. He writes, “It was a great move and I found paradise! No more cold rainy
days for me.” Gary hooked up with John Horne at a joint on Anna Maria Island called Fast
 Eddie’s, and has been in the restaurant business ever since because he loves the people he 
meets. Gary has one 28-year-old daughter in Wisconsin, with whom he’s planning a trip to go 
back home to Ireland to visit his 83-year-old mother. Gary also loves golf…. and telling lies!!!!
