Are you a fan of seafood? As it turns out, October is National Seafood Month and a great excuse to enjoy some delicious seafood. In this week’s Vista del Rey Blog post, we are highlighting four of the best seafood restaurants here in Tacoma, WA (according to TripAdvisor).

Duke’s Chowder House

“Duke Moscrip, founder and owner of Duke’s Chowder House and Duke’s Seafood & Chowder, opened his first restaurant in Seattle in 1977 in lower Queen Anne, serving an eclectic mix of food and using cigar boxes as their cash register. It’s come a long way since then, but the character and welcoming style of our restaurants remain uniquely Duke.”

Lobster Shop

The Lobster Shop at Commencement Bay offers wonderful venues for both small and large events and banquets with private rooms that can seat anywhere from 6 to 40 plus guests. They serve up a variety of chef-quality seafood dishes for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Make your reservations online today!

The Fish Peddler on Foss Waterway

A combination restaurant and seafood retail market, you will find only the freshest, top-quality seafood at The Fish Peddler. Stop in for lunch or dinner and enjoy the “boat to table” goodness you will only find at The Fish Peddler. We highly recommend their Seafood Nachos and Bacon Wrapped Prawns.

Anthony’s at Point Defiance

“A fast-paced, high-energy restaurant serving fresh Northwest seafood in casual and fun preparations. It's a perfect spot for the whole family, and is located adjacent to the Vashon ferry terminal, just below the Point Defiance Zoo. Twenty-foot high dormer windows provide an expansive 280° view of Vashon Island, Mount Rainier and local boating activity.”
