Original Spar Chips

If there's one thing I will never not order, its the spar chips. I always purposely order extra so I have some to bring home. Friends from out of town tried them and became obsessed, they still talk about them weeks later. Crispy, simple, and delicious.

Chicken & Jos

I think I came to the Spar about 30 years ago and had the chicken an jo's for the first time. Since then I have had enough chicken to decimate the hen house. I have replaced the jo's with spar chips in the last few years because I had a heavenly vision. God was right. The chips are divine.

Beer Battered Prawns

I ordered the steamed clams which were excellent! And a beer on draft. This is a great cafe with a wonderful view! I love the building. So much history here! Love the hardwood floors and exposed brick. My server was attentive but not overbearing. This place is a gem in Tacoma. Would definitely come back!

In about 1200AD the Polynesian peoples reached nearly all of the Pacific islands. One Island these explorers missed was this Volcanic Mountain of Tots. Known for its streams of melted cheese, piles of bacon thrown among the countryside, and mountain tops covered in sour cream, this Volcanic island is a treasure for adventure seekers. Combining the world's two greatest apps: tots and nachos, we have finally reached peak civilization. Napoleon Dynamite would be proud.

Onion rings

The best onion rings in Tacoma. Not soggy with grease, but a true crispy beer battered sweet red onion on the inside. You can bite in and not pull the onion out. Bite for bite, it is an enjoyment to eat, and maybe share. Na, just tell them to get their own basket! Don't forget the tartar for dippin'!

Spar Gumbo

The only place west of New Orleans for excellent gumbo! This is the only menu item I ever order. I've tasted my friend's halibut and found it to be excellent, but I can't pass up the gumbo!

Fish Tacos

While I like to try new things, I come here specifically for the fish tacos. The meat is always soft and juicy, and when accompanied by the crunch of the cabbage and the spice of the aoli, it's a perfectly balanced treat. It's a fish lovers comfort food and the portions are just right. Well, almost... there's always room to pair it with a nice summer ale ;) We love The Spar and the Old Town/Home Town feeling it gives.

Mediterranean Plate

First of all, I love the spar. I have been coming here for years and years and it has NEVER disappointed. It's my favorite place in Tacoma. First time trying the Mediterranean plate and it was very fresh and delicious. My grandma also tried the Mediterranean plate and she really enjoyed it. Overall I am extremely satisfied with this bar and always look forward to coming here.

Wisconsin Cheese Curds

Think of the best mozzarella sticks you've ever had and multiply that times ten. That's what the cheese curds are-heavenly bits of Wisconsin cheese that melt in your mouth. As a Southerner who was skeptical of anything different than a normal mozzarella stick, I didn't know what to expect. The cheese curds did not disappoint, and you won't ever want to go back to regular mozzarella sticks.

Chicken & Jos

I love this fried chicken. The breading is so well done and fairly unique as far as fried chicken goes. I don't know if you would find this fried Chicken anywhere else. It's ate a large meal for one person and I found myself taking half of it home. wrapping it up in aluminum foil and reheating it in the oven as a leftover made it twice as delicious. this was one of the few things I had an appetite for when I was going through chemotherapy.

It was superb! Exactly what I needed to support a healthy plant based diet- fresh crisp veggies, tender warm pita, creamy garlic infused hummus & tangy olives. Yum!

Tuna Melt

BEST TUNA MELT IN TACOMA! Some people have a favorite "must try at every restaurant if it's on their menu." Mine is the tuna melt. The Spar has it DOWN. It's not too mayo-y, and full of flavor! Perfect crunch and it's warm and so delicious!!
