The Spar is a great neighborhood spot. The best items on the menu are the Spar chips of course and the famous chicken and joes! The chicken is always juicy. They also have amazing hummus and their homemade soaps can rival "No soup for you" status! Sitting down and relaxing with the rest of the patrons is easy. There is nothing uptight about this bar. Anyone is welcome. Listen to some blues or classic rock on the weekends. Sip some beer or hard cidar if that's your pleasure...it just a great place to be.

Have been there recently (01-05-13) and good food and modest prices are hard to beat - especially
in Tacoma where restaurant prices tend toward the high side. On-street parking is easy and service was A-1. It's basically pub grub and a good beer selection which is what I like.

Eat, drink, and be merry with this second story bar facing the puget sound! Or count the train cars below as they go by. With good food and drink you will enjoy the old style atmoshere.

Visited The Spar and had their reuben sandwich special -- it's difficult to imagine a more poorly made reuben. Very little cheese and very little sauerkraut. It was basically toasted rye with some corned beef and a tiny, tiny bit of cheese/sauerkraut flavoring. In short, their so-called 'reuben sandwich' is a joke.
