Every time we visit Freighthouse square, we eat here. The owner/manager? is passionate about creating quality food. He personalizes the experience. He has a great sense of humor. The food is amazing too! Personally, the experience itself is half of dining out.

Hungry> This is the place otherwise order one entrée and split it. Friendly service, fast too. You'll have plenty of time to walk up to the Tacoma Dome and catch the show.

This is probably the best fish & chips I have had in my 57 years on this planet. The cod is hand breaded on site and I thought it was perfect. Not too much breaking like some pub house fish. The chips are awesome and...More
