German Restaurant
$$
“Authentic German eats. Decent brunch. They have indoor mini golf, which is pretty cool, as well as a couple of Bocce Ball areas. The patio is great when the weather is warmer. It's located in the heart of Stadium District where there are plenty of other restaurant choices and it's right next to Wright Park, one of the largest city parks in the country. A visit to Tacoma without seeing Wright Park is not complete.”

American Restaurant
$$
“Cool restaurant/bar in an actual 100 year old firehouse. They kept the horses in the room to the side. They brew their own beer, but have a lot of other local brews on tap. My go to meal is either the Bison burger, Steelhead Tacos, or Steelhead plate with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Wednesday nights are Quiz nights beginning at 7 and running for three rounds, one starting each hour. It's free to play and prize is $10 for top score each round. ”
