Pacific Grill

From the moment you first step into Pacific Grill, you will feel welcome and comfortable.

Gracefully restored, the ground floor of the historic Waddell Building features 17-foot high exposed beam ceilings, glowing sealife art forms & intimate lighting.

A curvaceous sexy bar awaits-- Edison bulbs slinking overhead. The bartender knows you like your martini shaken - not stirred. You grab a Bar Menu. "Best Onion Rings in the United States." -- New York Times ~ Marian Burros

Pacific Grill speaks to great beginnings...to comfort, relaxation, romance & great conversation.

The gorgeous dining room--is the perfect setting for Chef /Owner Gordon Naccarato's award-winning food. Naccarato's culinary career has taken him from Los Angeles to Aspen, Miami Beach to New York, and now back home to Tacoma.

American Kobe Beef & old fashioned braised pot roast with lumpy mashed potatoes & gravy.
