I realy like the room. Very comfortable for me. Food is decent. Beer selection very good. I had a tastebud problem while I was there...it just seemed like the beers I tried were a bit "dead". My companion didnít have the same reaction though, but it seemed to me that maybe the lines hadnít been cleaned in a while. I would definitely go back again.

Both a great neighbourhood place and a visiting beer-loverís delight. The selection is invariably excellent, service is efficient when busy but personable when a bit slower, and the brewersí and other special events make the Parkway a must for PNW fans. They have a Barleywine fest every spring and an IPA fest in late summer every year. Cask ale available year round and the Randall must be experienced by all hopheads! Food portions are small by American standards, but that is a plus in my book. Quality is above average for a beer pub and prices are reasonable.

My favorite watering hole in Tacoma. Large list of rotating taps, always keeps me coming back for something new. Knowledgable staff that knows what they are serving. Has great events they do very frequently with brewers from across the US. The food is standard pub fair, but itís well made, and how can you go wrong for a $1 giant basket of popcorn to polish off the night. Come on by. Iíll buy you a round if Iím there.

I LOVE THE PARKWAY. This pub is only 3 blocks from my house, so itís very convenient. But thatís not the only reason I love The Parkway. Cask ales, large rotating tap list, great ambiance and decor, friendly staff and a shuffleboard table. This place has everything a craft beer buff could want. Iíve noticed that the better beer served the fewer the amount of lame guys and gals looking to get tanked off of kitten piss, which means a more relaxed atmosphere and less BS.

The beer selection is typically very good with local micros, seasonals, and a casked ale. Periodically have brewer nights where you can sample less common brews and meet reps. Overall very friendly for the Tacoma brew scene. Food isnít the best quality nor the worst, but it is very cheap so you get what you pay for. Ambiance is very nice usually as a neighborhood bar. Late evenings on the weekend tend to turn into a hipster crowd though. Overall I highly recommend this bar to beer lovers in Tacoma.

I like this place and think they do some amazing festivals and are keeping up with the beer scene, defininately one of the places in Tacoma to go have a brew... I will say that if you know people there it will seem more friendly, and the back rooms get a little confined... the food is bar food...

The Parkway is a great neighborhood pub, and man, I wish it was in my neighborhood. I have been there twice, the first time being for the 2008 barley wine fest. It will now be a regualr stop when I am in the area. A selection to make any beer geek happy and at tavern prices which makes me even happier!

One of the best. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. 20 taps, one of which is a nitro handle, and one of which is a cask handle. Killer brewerís nights, and free shuffleboard. One of the best pub burgers around.

Went down for the Day of IPAs. Great setting; quiet street where the north Tacoma neighborhood meets the Stadium District; just up the street from Wright Park. Nice carpentry, great been-there-for-decades feel. Good selection of beers, fun and cool staff, great vibe. Iíll definitely be back. Not sure if Iíd drive a great distance to Tacoma just for this place, but it more than holds up its end of the bargain if youíre in town anyway. If youíre local itís a no-brainer.
