If you are hungry and want a good variety of foods from which to choose, this is the place. Sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, salads, steaks, chicken, and more - all good. Usually have to take food home. Lots of seating. Good service. If local, join the club and earn points each time you dine. Just earned $50 in dining credit.

The fact that the parking lot is always full at this place should tell you something. People love eating here. I have had lunch here about a dozen times over the past two years and it has always been a good deal. My wife and I had lunch last week. She went for the taco salad and I decided to... More

Really disappointed. 25 taps should excite anyone until they see the lineup. Just domestic beers. Maybe 5 local crafts. Didn't eat but food look adequate. Service was friendly and quick. DJ didn't seem to have a clue about how to get the crowd interested or participating.

This used to be our go-to sports bar for great food and good service. The food is still good, but the service is awful. You're lucky if the servers remember to bring you your tab. Don't expect them to return to your table during your meal to ask if you need anything, not even a refill. Just hope you got... More

Went out with friends for a Saturday night meal. He asked if we wanted to go to someplace fancy or to a dive. We told him, lets go to a dive and he suggested the Loose Wheel. Well, if this place is a dive, he must have some awfully high standards cause the Loose Wheel is more like a gem... More

Went there with an Entertainment Book coupon. Had heard that they have great steaks. My wife had the Saturday Special 16 oz. New York Strip Steak. Excellent and way too much for her to eat there. Had to take half home. I had the Captain's Plate and it had a very good amount of seafood. Downsize for us seniors is... More

Wanted an early lunch so stopped here because they open early. Had the lunch special which was a prime rib dip. Very good, with great fries. We also ordered the NY strip steak. I always like the way the server waits for you to cut the steak to make sure it's to your liking. I had a Newcastle Brown beer... More

I've discovered most Tacoma places because of my dad, this is an example. It definitely a local place to eat, but the prices are solid and the foods good. They've got great happy hour prices too! Staff is very friendly too!

Wife and I stopped here for lunch. THe music was very loud, the service was terrible and the cheap, frozen fish and chips they tried to serve us was terrible. They also screwed up our order. The older fake blonde and brunette should be fired. We will never eat here again and will discourage others as well.

Be it the multitude of choices of beer or just plain good food at very reasonable prices, the Loos Wheel is the place to go. By all means - try the specials. Steak night, Prime Rib night, two for one burgers, all are well priced and the quantity/quality cannot be beat. The atmosphere is 'fun'. The waitstaff has been fantastic,... More
