The Fish Peddler sells fish to the other restaurants. Does that tell you anything about quality? Located really out-of-the-way but quick and easy to get to once you have your GPS dialed in.

The fish stew was great but you have to work for it with cracking shells. Maybe a little of the spicy wide for me, but still wonderful. My wife had a simple grilled halibut and it was superb. The staff is efficient and friendly. Topping it off with a bourbon-infused crème brulee made for a perfect meal.

We arrived on a Sunday at noon. We had to wait a very short time for our seat. The atmosphere is "Waterfront Pub Grub" but, once seated, the service and food are very good. Once you are down on the Foss Waterway promenade, access to the Fish Peddler is quite easy and near the Glass Museum. Access to the waterfront is down large, wide, easy-to-negotiate stairways. We enjoyed our visit and will return on our next visit to Tacoma.

My daughter and I stopped here before a concert for a quick bike. The seafood was very good. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Atmosphere was very comfortable. Hard the find, but well worth the trip. Prices were reasonable. Portion size was good. We'll be back.

Average food and Excellent Service paired with a lovely, true NW location on Thea Foss waterway.

The cocktails - a Bloody Mary you can load with goodies and a Kentucky Mule - were very good; our apps, not as much. The calamari has 5 Spice on it which I found dull and salty and pointless. 6 Oysters on the half shell ok... not the highest quality ($11). Chowder was good, flavorful and not too thick ($9 bowl).

The best thing was the bread pudding served with a delicious Bananas Foster ice cream.

The waiter was so affable and quick, he definitely gave Fish Peddler its 4th star. Give that man a raise!
