About Us

Tacoma’s premier waterfront restaurant, the Lobster Shop, located on Commencement Bay, is a decades-long mainstay of the local dining scene. Since opening in 1981, loyal guests return year after year for the friendly, knowledgeable service and the unbeatable views of Mount Rainier and the Olympics from every table. The seaside restaurant serves patrons fresh Pacific Northwest seafood, Prime dry-aged steaks, and iconic lobster dishes alongside incredible wines and cocktails.
