“Locally owned and operated since 1912, my favorite place to find the catch of the day is Northern Fish, located in Old Town on the Ruston Way waterfront,” shares REALTOR® Stacey Gendreau.

Located at 3911 S. 56th Street Tacoma, WA 98409, this Tacoma staple has been owned and operated by the same family for five generations. Not only does Northern Fish have wholesale options, but you can even order their seafood online or, as Stacey prefers, buy a fresh catch in person!

“Through the front door and to your left is a small walk-up food bar where you can pick from a variety of baskets, including fish & chips, oyster & chips, hot clam chowder, salt & pepper prawns, and cod tacos,” she recommends.

“It's a great place to stop in and grab a hot cup of chowder or a shrimp cocktail to enjoy on their patio. They also have fresh fish for those spring barbecues and get togethers, [and a few of their offerings include] crab, scallops, salmon, halibut, smoked salmon, prawns, and even seaweed salad! I love stopping in to pick up some of their smoked salmon and prepared salads to fill my picnic basket on my way to Point Defiance.”
