At this Tacoma after-work institution, guests come for comfort food and solid cocktails. The space is stylish with a sleek curved bar, high top seating, and mod tubular lighting fixtures. Although Pacific Grill’s onion rings have been touted as the “best onion rings in the U.S.” by the New York Times, its house-made blue cheese tater tots are another beloved bar snack. Inventive twists on classic cocktails include a smoky martini made with gin and a drop of Oban scotch. The dinner menu includes everything from grilled ahi tuna to grilled heritage pork chop.
