Every time I travel to tacoma for business I stop at ci shenanigans for dinner. I love the salmon, blackened. I always end up with an empty plate. Prices can be a little high depending on the selection, but the food is great.

I have been many times for lunch and dinner with colleagues and friends. My firm also does our annual Holiday party, and I attend business meetings a couple times a year, in the group spaces. The food, the view and the service are all great.

We have spent the past dozen years having T-Day at CI's. Never again.This restaurant has really gone downhill. The chef must be a le-con-blue drop out. The turkey was tuff and dry. The side dishes were sad to say the least. The price was high for what we got. There are allot of choices out their, don't waste your time... More

Went here because the one in our home town closed due to city plans. Was nice to enjoy Shenanigan's again. Great service and good meal. Unfortunately my caesar salad was a bit wilted, but I did not bring it to their attention, they would have been most gracious if I had. Really yummy bruschetta!

This used to be the place to take clients when visiting Tacoma. However, the place needs a good cleaning, new carpet and some fresh paint. Food was still good though a bit pricy but you are paying for the view of the Sound. Service could use a little bit of coordination as one of our party never got his meal... More

We arrived with a 7 year old boy and an 11 month old baby. As well as 4 adults. Everyone had an excellent meal. The food and the service was a-one. The staff were there when needed without hovering. Everyone enjoyed their food choices. A great evening was had by all.

It had been a few years since we'd been there. We went on a Saturday around 2:30 so there weren't many people there. Still, we had do wait around at the door wondering what to do for quire a while before someone showed up to take us to a table. The food was very slow coming though the place was... More
