This is a little gem off the beaten path! Every time I visit Tacoma a stop here is definitely a must! The food is very good and the views of the Pudget Sound and the Narrows Bridge are picture perfect. A great spot to watch the sun set. There is also a walking path that runs along the water. The...

Good place for fish & chips and chowder! Great view of the Narrows bridge and the sound. After lunch, you can walk down the path and walk along the beach when the tide is out.

I love to come here because Tacoma has many waterfront seafood restaurants all along our coastline but this one is tucked away in a quiet area with killer views and yet , doesn't get so crazy on weekends. The views from inside the restaurant or outside on it's deck are special. There is a view of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge,... More

We inevitably plan our dinners here around the time of the evening trains rolling through. A bit noisy, but still - feel that thunder!! We stick with the cod fish n chips in panko/beer batter. It's a treat, so we live with the $28 bill . . . Great sunsets, City Park next door with eating tables, outside served seating,... More

Third visit to Steamers since November 2016 and have had good meals except for recent visit. March 23rd had Rockfish Tacos. Seasoning and flavors good but very skimpy on the fish. If you go in the evening, can be very noisy with kids.

We were scouting around, looking for a place close to the Tacoma Musical Playhouse on 6th Ave. for lunch before a 2 pm Sunday matinee. What we found out west on 6th Avenue, as far west as you can go before a dunk in Puget Sound, is Steamer's Seafood Cafe, tucked into a nook between the south end of Titlow... More

Went on an evening when there were very few people in the restaurant. Good quick service and reasonable prices. Used an Entertainment Book coupon so the meal was really reasonable. Only handicap parking right by the restaurant. Other parking is a short walk but across a railroad track. The trains fly by so use caution.

Visited this place on our trip to Washington. What a find! We love fish and chips, and I was looking for fish and chips that would rival an Irish pub in Sonoma, CA. Steamer's did that and more. I had the cod fish, and our nephew and his wife had the halibut. Both were delicious...not too much batter, and very... More

The cod is very good, but the batter is heavy. Fries are excellent and cole slaw is good. They did not seem to have enough help on hand to keep every thing moving well. Great views of the Narrows Bridge and Puget Sound. The price for the sodas seemed a bit high at $3. Food was left in the serving... More
