The Best Fish-and-Chips

Tides Tavern, Gig Harbor, Washington

Some places neglect the “chips” part, but here both the flavorful Alaskan halibut and thick, Texas-style fries share the spotlight. The setting and atmosphere serve up the essence of the Pacific Northwest: Fir trees line hillsides surrounding a busy little harbor. Everyone from tattooed hipsters to tech execs mingles here.

What you’ll shell out: $12.95 (two pieces of Arctic cod), $13.95 (two pieces of Alaskan halibut), $16.95 (three pieces of Alaskan halibut)

Still hungry? The clam chowder is a smart choice while sampling the Oregon and Washington beers and wines. 2925 Harborview Dr.; 253/858-3982 or tidestavern.com
