Fun, restaurant located in Iconic Titlow Beach, Tacoma WA. Nestled between the cold waters of the Puget Sound, with a fantastic view of the Narrows Bridge, and the industrial railroad tracks. You can feel the breeze as Amtrac or Burlington Northern sound their whistles and...More

They always have the best clam chowder in sourdough bowls. Good selection of beer and great view of the narrows bridge. Always get great food but the only downside wad staff was a bit inattentive. But would definitely go again

Steamers in Tacoma is one of those local secrets. It is located in an out of the way neighborhood, so you have to be looking for it. The view is spectacular. Great place to go on a sunny afternoon. The food is good, and usually...More

I just really like their fish and chips and subbing a salad rather than fries and Cole slaw. The cod is good fish with a good Panko batter.

Used to visit this eatery 2-3 times a month; since the fire and remodel less, often but we still enjoy the setting and food. The prices have been increased and the fish portions have been reduced a bit but in general they still offer decent...More

About 2 years ago, "LakewoodFam " wrote a review praising Steamer's Fish 'N Chips as the best in the area. I agreed then. They were wonderfully moist beer-battered cod filets cooked just right with a tasty, crisp batter. To my thinking, the best in the...More

Wonderful fish menu. Clam chowder is great. Counter service but they will bring food to your table. Eat inside or outside

Yes. Good gluten free options, BUT you won't be able to have anything fried. Grilled fish with fresh veggies is delicious. They also have fantastic salads. You probably can't have anything fried because of the coatings... More
