We stopped in for lunch. The cocktails were outstanding. Best Margarita in Tacoma. The “Engine Master” was delightful. We had the Mahi Mahi tacos (the polenta was fabulous) and the Chef’s Meatloaf (WOW). The service was great.

We usually come here for the happy hour which has great options for yummy appetizers and good drinks. Enjoyed many meals out on the dock which offers a great view of the narrows bridge and a relaxing atmosphere. Worth visiting
