After more than 45 years, Washington's final Steamers Seafood Cafe location to close
Known for creamy clam chowder, crispy fish and chips, and perhaps the most affordable restaurant with a view on the brink of Tacoma's Titlow Beach since 1991, Steamers Seafood Cafe will close its doors in January 2021, making this summer the waterfront restaurant’s last.
Parent company E3 Restaurant Co. announced the closure in a press release on Monday.
“For more than four decades, we’ve had the privilege of serving up Pacific Northwest seafood to guests spanning many generations,” said E3 owner and CEO Jim Rowe. “We look forward to welcoming the community through our doors this summer and fall before we must bid them farewell.”
The landlord has decided not to renew the lease at 8802 Sixth Avenue, according to the restaurant's press release.
The first Steamers opened at Pier 56 in 1975, until E3 — then known as Consolidated Restaurants Inc. — closed its Seattle outposts. A Kirkland Steamers opened in 2010 and later shuttered. The Tacoma location was opened in 1991, and remains the only location left.
"Come celebrate our final summer at Titlow beach," the restaurant stated on its Facebook page. "We would love to serve you for many more decades to come, but our landlord is sadly not renewing our lease starting January 2021."
The order-at-the-counter cafe was beloved for its water views, serve-yourself tartar sauce pump, and fried cod with panko.
Now, you'll have until January 2021 to enjoy its yeasty beer-battered halibut.
"Since 1991, we've had the privilege of serving up Pacific Northwest seafood to guests spanning many generations," the restaurant stated in a press release. "You all have become like family to us and we are so grateful for your continued support over the years. We look forward to welcoming you back through our doors this summer and fall. Come visit us soon for your favorite fish and chips, ice cream, stunning views, and incredible team."
