Tacoma seafood needed

The Lobster Shop at Dash Point is a bit out of the way, but is very charming and sits right on the water.

University Place/Tacoma Resto recommendations

There is one restaurant in UP that I'd recommend, the Keg. It's a chain but they do a great job. Theres a cafe at the golf course that's supposed to be pretty good, but I haven't tried it personally. Also, theres a fairly new burger place called Leftys that offers up good eats.

Seattle/Tacoma--college dining

The 6th ave district is close to UPS. There are many good restaurants along this street. Farellis pizza near Union and 6th ave. is popular with the college crowd. Further east you have Old Milwaukee for breakfast, and then near 6th and Pine you have a big selection. Asados, Argentinian steakhouse, Masa, Mexican breakfast on weekends, and great happy hour prices, and the Primo Grill. Asados and Primo Grill are a little more pricey, but since this is Tacoma, a much better value than you'd get in Seattle.

Where Do You Eat in Gig Harbor?

Well, thats a wide open topic. Are you looking for restaurants with the same level of casualness as Blazing Onion? There are two casual restaurants that stand out. Kellys downtown serves up great breakfasts, sandwiches, and burgers. I like Green eggs and ham, which is pesto enhanced. Also the Carolina chicken burger with sweet potato fries. I also love Susannes, which is open for breakfast and lunch. They have wonderful scones and muffins for breakfast and good coffee drinks. For lunch, they have homemade soup, sandwiches on homemade bread, and a delicious pasta, pesto side with each sandwich. Desserts are really good, especially the eclairs and the strawberry whipped cream cake. Susannes is along Harborview Drive towards the end of the bay. Other interesting finds; Reflections at the airport, Steamers fish and chips (just across the bridge near Titlow Park in Tacoma), Morso, a wine bar with a fantastic harbor view that has a nice food menu with small plates and dinners, Fondi, a wood burning pizza place across the street from Blazing Onion, Devoted Kiss, a new cafe overlooking the harbor with yummy eggs benedict, and Massimos, Italian overlooking Henderson Bay in Purdy,

Eating out in Rome

Antica Taverna was very good! We ate there last night getting lost looking for Pizza Baffetto. Prices are reasonable and service was good. Lasagna, Risotta, and roasted vegetables were all very nice.
