1022 has awesome cocktails and food! On our most recent visit I got the fried chicken sandwich and my husband got the fried oyster po boy sandwich. Everything was really good. The drink called "the best of both worlds" was fantastic!

We went here for an after-dinner drink and found a well stocked and managed neighborhood bar. The bartender and owner provided creative, well mixed, cocktails based on flavor preference. The menu'd drinks provide a nice selection but the bartenders can create something to your preference.

Stumbled on this place tonight and figured we'd have a drink before dinner. Kevin was an amazing bartender and the patrons just sang praises about the food. We threw caution to the wind and stayed for dinner. So very glad we did!! Kevin, Rose, and the food were amazing. Highly recommend it!

We arrived at SeaTac to head to Olympic National Park and wanted to stop in Tacoma for dinner. We narrowed down our list by cross-referencing other sites like Chow and decided on 1033 South J as they had outdoor dining. It was one of the best meals I have had in years - all 4 of our selections were fabulous,... More

My friends and I came here one Friday night after we were hanging out in Tacoma and we had a great time eating and drinking out on the large patio. There is not much around here, but it was very quaint and relaxing and had a neighborhood bar feel. Would definitely return.

If you are in our beautiful city of Tacoma,1022 South J is a wonderful stop for happy hour, dinner or a late night snack. It's a clean, quaint bar with lots of personality, uniquely delicious food and drinks with a wide selection of liquor, plus beers, wines & ciders. Try the Marquis "lamb sausage" Sandwich and the Avocado Mango Tartar,... More
