Jeffrey’s Fave Tacoma Eats

My favorite local restaurants and bars
I've lived in Tacoma almost a year and go out exploring the city quite a bit. I eat out several times a week and have found some gems that I'd recommend.
Hip restaurant with fantastic bartenders. The menu is eclectic and fun. I love the Crab Cake Sandwich with a side of roasted Brussel sprouts. The grilled cheese and tomato soup combo is also legit. Best of all, it's only two blocks from my home.

Fun no frills Camping themed bar with a decent menu. I like he Chicken Bacon Ranch wrap with fries or tots. Good selection of beers. BINGO is every Tuesday from 6:30-9. Free play for first five games, sixth game is $1 per card and winner gets the whole pot. I've won a few times, it's a good time on a Tuesday. Fri and Sat they have karaoke beginning at 9pm, usually always a good crowd.

Famous 83 year old Tacoma bar with an outstanding beer list. Monday nights are Randall nights where they take a standard beer and run it through whatever Sean thinks will send it next level - usually more hops, fruit, and/or sometimes even chocolate, coffee, and marshmallows. I think I've seen him put Butterfinger candy bars in there. They have a small patio out front that is perfect for enjoying a nice afternoon or evening. There is a pool table in the back, as well as a few other games.

If you have a taste for Ramen I couldn't recommend this place more. They make the noodles in house and they are perfect. I recommend the curry ramen, it's so good!

Cool restaurant/bar in an actual 100 year old firehouse. They kept the horses in the room to the side. They brew their own beer, but have a lot of other local brews on tap. My go to meal is either the Bison burger, Steelhead Tacos, or Steelhead plate with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Wednesday nights are Quiz nights beginning at 7 and running for three rounds, one starting each hour. It's free to play and prize is $10 for top score each round.

650 beers in the cooler and about 30 on tap. Great sandwiches and always a good crowd, but not too crowded. It's in the Proctor neighborhood, which has quite a few cool shops and restaurants.

Tacos and margaritas. What more do you need? Seriously though, the tacos are fantastic and it's right on the popular 6th Ave Strip that is full of bars and restaurants.

Hands down my favorite pizza in Tacoma. Wood fired and perfect. Note, it's on Pacific Ave, which is full of other restaurant/bar choices. Odd Otter Brewery is right next door and is veteran owned and operated.

You grill your own meats around a big grill. It's fun and a pretty cool venue only a block from my home.

Great dive bar in Hilltop just across the street from my home. You'll satisfy your sandwich fix and the beer list is always rotating. 1111 is a local's favorite. It's open until 2am.

Authentic German eats. Decent brunch. They have indoor mini golf, which is pretty cool, as well as a couple of Bocce Ball areas. The patio is great when the weather is warmer. It's located in the heart of Stadium District where there are plenty of other restaurant choices and it's right next to Wright Park, one of the largest city parks in the country. A visit to Tacoma without seeing Wright Park is not complete.

One of the most well known bar/restaurant/music venues in Tacoma, The Swiss is a great place to catch a band, play some pool, grab some eats, and drool over the Dale Chihuly glass pieces above the bar.

Everything Hot Dogs and beer. Pretty much anything goes with the dogs in here. Right on 6th Ave, and across from Jazzbones, a great music venue to catch and band and move your body.

Duke's has by far some of the best clam chowder I've ever had, and I've lived in some places with great clam chowder. The views are beautiful right on Ruston Way, and they have fantastic sourdough bread. Like seriously, you'll want some bread to take home.

Great sandwiches and other eats in a really cool building. Relaxed and comfy seating options and they host weekly open mics and belly dancing. That's right, they have belly dancing on various Sunday's. Great spot to stop for a bite after hiking the trails at Point Defiance.

Great Mexican food and beer, right next door to Cook's Tavern. The brunch is fantastic, I love the huevos rancheros. Sit out front on the patio or a window stool and enjoy.
