Great happy hour prices

Great place to pop in for a dinner when in town for business. The happy hour (all day every day at the bar) offers 50% off many food choices. We had the smoked salmon, a cabbage salad and onion rings. Quick and easy service ...if you can manage to get a seat at the bar.

This restaurant was the hotels recommendation, we had a reservation and were seated immediately. It's was a lovely space and we were seated in a large booth, the bar was full and looked like fun. Unfortunately that's about all I can say that was impressive. I had the chopped wedge, average. We shared the deviled eggs, average. I had the... More

This is a popular place in downtown Tacoma by the convention center. Entrees are well prepared and offer some interesting combinations. Not a place for children, as there isn't much for them to eat.

One word: scallops! They were amazing. Go for a bottle of Shatter Grenache while you can still find it!

Been here a few times including for Thanksgiving. Excellent dining experience. Pricey though. Food is worth it though. Great cocktails. Great ambience and service was excellent. Highly recommended. Very accepting of our one year old (our reservations was early and saw other children there). Groups and couples would be great here.

Pacific Grill is one of the best restaurants in Tacoma. I won't even go into that in depth. Make a reservation because it's often very crowded (especially on the weekend) but you won't be disappointed. Happy Hour is where it's at at Pacific Grill. If you sit in the bar (or at the cocktail tables along the pony wall) it... More

We (husband, myself and 11 year old daughter) went here last week! I have driven by numerous times and said we should try this place. Well we finally did and it was fantastic. From the outside it looks like a bit like a dark wood, low ceiling steak house type atmosphere but once inside, its stunning! Love the exposed brick,... More

We've been here for lunch, and now we've been here for dinner. It is a flavor DELIGHT. This restaurant has one of the most creative menus in terms of amazing flavor combinations. Also, you can spend $$$ per person for a meal, or you can choose $$. There aren't pages and pages of menu to read through, and there is... More

When his group was interviewing new partners, my husband forced me to accompany him to like ten dinners in three weeks, all at Pacific Grill. I have eaten pretty much everything on the menu. It is all great. I particularly enjoy the twists they throw into standard American fare-the steak salad or the deviled eggs for instance. But all of... More

I've actually been to this restaurant several times for Work Holiday Parties. Their food is excellent ( we had catered), the atmosphere was nice and perfect for a party, and the bar was well stocked. The customer service was excellent and the prices were right on for a corporate party. Definitely recommend.
