TACOMA, Wash. — Looking for dinner with a view? It's hard to beat Katie Downs in Tacoma. The wrap around deck offers diners an unbeatable panorama of Commencement Bay – oh, and the food isn't bad either.
You'll find everything from burgers to seafood on the menu, but it's the award-winning deep dish pizza that gets the most attention. Favorites include the Sicilian with spicy Italian sausage and the Great White which comes chicken and artichoke hearts.
The family-run tavern first opened in 1982. It's named after one of the original owner's grandmother who immigrated from Ireland. They say Katie had a pint of beer nearly everyday which makes her a fitting namesake for the 21-and-over restaurant.
