I fell in love not only with the food but with the view of the sound!! You have many wonderful choices to choose from on their menu. The staff wasn’t rushing you which I appreciate. You should get reservations in advance it’s a popular place.

Overlooking the water in Tacoma, C. I.Shenanigan's has wonderful atmosphere. The service is outstanding. There is a wide selection to choose from on the menu, and there is plenty here to keep everyone very happy. This is a "go to" destination in Tacoma!
