Favorite Tacoma Restaurant Deck

On stunning weekends like this what's your favorite Tacoma bar or restaurant porch, patio, or deck? Here are the ones that are right at the top of my list.

  • Tatanka Take Out, 4915 N. Pearl (love watching the world drive by on Pearl there)
  • Bayview Bar & Grill, 229 St. Helens (little known spot with a great day with a great view!)
  • Harmon Tap Room, 204 St. Helens
  • Harmon Hub, 203 Tacoma Ave. (who doesn't love when they roll up those garage doors?)
  • Katy Downs, 3211 Ruston Way (though anywhere along the waterfront is mobbed during this kind of weather)
  • Gibson's Frozen Yogurt, 8 N. Tacoma Ave. (great to cool down and chill in the Stadium neighborhood)

Bayview, FTW.

Ram on Ruston Way -- Nice to be right next to the water. The wait time is pretty long on weekends, but you can sit in the bar until a table is open.

Duke's Chowder House -- I've only eaten inside, but the deck is similar to the Ram. It wasn't as crowded as the restaurants closer to downtown on Ruston Way (they're down a little bit).

Chamber Bay Grill -- maybe the best sunset view in the area. The food is good, though one time I had poor service. Great place to sit and talk with friends. They're usually very attentive and the view is glorious.

Topside Bar and Grill -- In Steilacoom. Where the old Jake's was. I haven't been here since it re-opened, but it's definitely one of the most stunning views for a restaurant patio. Unfortunately, on a sunny day, it's a long wait and the service gets spotty with so many sun-hungry diners.

I like Morso or the Tides Tavern - both in Gig Harbor though.

Jesse, I picked up that newspaper insert from Amocat. Thanks so much. I left something for you too.

I do like the Tides Tavern also.

Oh, I just remembered:

Steamers Cafe by Titlow Beach. Love that place.

The new restaurant opening up by the Narrows Marina should be interesting. The TNT Diner has been writing about it for a couple months.

Oh ya, I did get that today Maria. Thank you! I plan on hanging that in my office. Cheers!


Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.

So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
