Touring around, we wanted a bite to eat on the water and found this place! Had a drink and ate some coconut shrimp. Out of this world! Friendly staff and great view of the port.

At the suggestion of a colleague I had dinner at the Peddler. Not easy to find but worth the effort. Started with the dungeness cocktail followed by their northwest seafood stew. Packed with mussels clams shrimp and crab. Delicious and very reasonable.

The halibut fish and chips were delicious, three generous pieces with a not-too-heavy batter, and a good deal for around $17. For an appetizer my companion and I opted for the bulgogi tacos, which may seem weird at first, but they also were a good...More

One of the best Cioppino I've ever had and a crab melt sandwich that was almost as exceptional. Plus a great selection of local brews on tap. The motel we picked (Tacoma Travelodge) may have been the worst we've ever stayed in but the quality...More
