“Best Made Beers in Tacoma”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Under new ownership the E-9 has flourished. The Brewers have been allowed to make the beers they want and it shows. The volume of barrel aged and sour beers they have been cranking out is amazing.

The kitchen has also gone through an upgrade. the food had been taking a bit of a down turn and after the ownership change the quality has been ramped way up. It was a rare occasion my wife and I ate here but now it is a weekly occasion.

“Restaurant's 40 years Old!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

They're located in a turn of the century firehouse. They offer great bar food (i.e., double-stacked nachos, pizzas, tons of different burgers, etc.). My husband had their Ruben and said it's the best he ever had. I (not too hungary) had the Taco Salad and it was very good (Chopped lettuce is always a plus.)
There service is very good and there are TVs everywhere, so great to watch the football games.

We will be back!
