Parkway is a Tacoma treasure. Great atmosphere, above average pub food and excellent, extensive craft beer selection. The staff is friendly and helpful, the atmosphere neighborly. The food is great but took a long time to arrive. Hopefully a fluke day. We will certainly go back.

We went here for a brew and did not know what we might find food-wise. It was a pleasant surprise. The burger, soup, and chili were very good. Too bad they don't offer fries instead of chips. Beer selection is amazing.

Bumped into this pub while walking in the neighborhood and was surprised to learn how long this establishment had been here. What a historical gem! Enjoyed lunch on a Sat: burger & chips and chicken burger & salad. Very cordial and attentive service. There's a pool table and games in the back room as well as a small rentable separate... More

I discovered this gem the first time back in 2001 when I met a friend here for a beer. We both lived in different cities and she suggested a mid point. I was so impressed by the history that this Tavern had not just in the neighborhood but for the City itself. Lined along the walls you can read how... More

Friends brought me to this fun beer haven. Appeared to be around 25 taps of largely northwest goodness. They will hook you up with samples if you ask...not sure if they do sampler flights or not. I had the chili which was great and very filling. Great vibe in there and I LOVED the tap handles hanging from the rafters!... More

Went in for lunch and to play shuffleboard and had a great time with great food. Staff was very friendly and the clam chowder was great.

Great burgers. Tons of beer and cider on draft. Cleanest bar bathroom around. Always excellent rotating taps. Great staff, knowledgeable about the sudsy varieties. Just be sure to check the price of your pint--I recently accidentally ordered and loved a 9$ pint of cider (which as a student, is way out of my budget) The front room can be noisy,... More

We attended a performance at the Tacoma Little Theater and afterwards we walked up the street to this Tacoma classic. It's been years since I had stopped in. What a treat. It's small and tidy and just what the locals ordered. I had a great cheeseburger and side salad. Not your standard tavern fry job food. The salad was fresh,... More

If you are near Wright Park or attending Tacoma Little Theater, this is a perfect spot to meet friends. Lots of micro brews and some good eats. The smallness adds to its character.

This tavern was recommended by our B&B which was right down the street. We came on Monday evening around 6:30pm and the place was full. Everyone enjoying themselves inside and outside having a drink. We enjoy beer and there are plenty of good ones on tap. We had fun tasting various beers. Can't really comment on the food, but the... More
