GIVE ME A BREAK. If there is one place where I expect salmon to be cooked right it's the Pacific Northwest. Well, this isn't the case at Shenanigans, and if they can't cook salmon right, I doubt there is much they can cook right. The grilled fresh sockeye salmon was overcooked, dry, and essentially flavorless - WHAT A HUGH DISAPPOINTMENT. Yes, Shenanigans is a beautiful restaurant, with a great view, and good local beer. Service was incredibly slow - and this was on a quiet Wednesday night. The slight arrogance displayed by some of the staff, much like the pricing, is indicative of the staff's over-inflated and under-deserved opinion of the restaurant. Trust me - you don't measure up

CI Shenanigan's in Tacoma is a cute place for casual dining. American with Seafood, reasonably priced and a friendly atmosphere. Good service. I would recommend this place to others....

Shenanigan's is one of the better restaurants in this particular area. The food is really tasty but a bit on the expensive side, it is worth it however in my opinion. Give it a try!

Great Seafood. A little on the expensive side. Perfect restaurant for a special occasion or just to splurge. Beautiful view, right on the water. Service is excellent. Waiters are friendly and are very knowledgeable.

I went to dinner at CI Shenanigans and the food was delicious but our server was not very nice which made our visit not a pleasant one. However the view is very nice.

The food here is "excellent", and the service is very friendly. The view overlooking the water is beautiful and hard to beat. The pricing is a little on the high side but is average for any other classy restaurant in the area. I would highly recommend this restaurant but especially for breakfast.

Their eggs are the best eggs on the planet, no, make that in the universe. If you are a breakfast fan, you are almost definetely a C I Shenanigans fan.

The food here is AMAZING! Staff is wonderful, really classy establishment. Marilyn is an excellent server, the food is underpriced for what you get! Overall it's a little on the spendy side for drinks at the bar but the bar tenders have always been extremely fun and can do some great tricks with the bottles of alcohol. A very posh setting for a buisiness meeting or a night out with friends!

PROS: Classy x 100
CONS: Pricey

Pros: Very good service and food

.

To be very honest the reviews above are indicative of the lack of restaurants in the Tacoma area. The people that have written them have either no pallet or work for the restaurant.

The service was slow as it took 1.5 hours for our entrees.

The meal was over-priced at $60.00 a head.

The entire menu was over-priced by the way most of the entrees are $35+, the appetizer 10+ and glass of wine $10+.

We were very disappointed in general.

We want our money back!

My family and I love getting together for special occasions over brunch, and this time we were blown away. It has been quite a while since we have dined at CI's..which we had in our minds as comparable to Anthony's or Salty's but dated and a little distressed. Boy, were we in for a pleasant surprise. Not only were we able to get reservations within an hour on OpenTable, they easily accomodated our request for a high chair. The restaurant has had a remodel in the recent years and sparkles with technology and comfortable elegance.The buffet spread was beautiful, well maintained, themed and plentiful! The server- full of information, polite and always had our drinks refilled (rarely seen done so well when the refills are FREE...Im talking champagne here people!) Every kitchen staff manning the buffet was as polite and outgoing as the front of house. Manager was on the floor, easy to be seen and congenial. She definitely had a smooth running ship. The food...oh my, the food. AMAZING. Themed Carribbean food, fresh shucked oysters, and crepes were just a few of our favorites. You know when you go to a buffet, fill your plate and eat half because it isnt always what you had expected? Not here. Not a bite goes to waste with this food! And to top it off, when the bill came we were shocked!.....at how little we paid. $21.99 for adults and 9.99 for kids....that included all non-alcohol beverages, all refillable and an amazing $2 champagne/mimosa with free refills. We were so thrilled at this newly shined diamond in the rough. I cant wait to try out dinner again sometime too! We enjoyed the Lobster Shop a few weeks back, but Shenanigans is above and beyond!

Pros: Must try the Creme Brulee! Everything is beyond exceptional

Cons: None. Sunday perfection!

I recently ate a wonderful dinner here in a party of six. With two bottles of wine, three appetizers, six entrees, four desserts, and a tip, the total came to just over $325. $55 per person for a great dinner at a restaurant with a beautiful view and attentive, helpful service is a splurge, for sure, but you get your money's worth. Though there aren't many vegetarian items on the menu, they will offer options if asked. The wines were great and went perfectly with the food. Steaks were excellent, and fish dishes had great, creative flavors. Everything was excellent, and I'll be back for special occasions in the future.

Pros: Fantastic view, Great food, Excellent service

Party of 6 drinks/food approx $60.00+ per person 6/6 first time patrons.
Praise: Excellent wines & selections. steak was delicious, Waitress was very nice & helpful with selections, View.
Complaints: Way Overpriced, Fish was bland, vegetables either overcooked or undercooked. Food lacks quality, wine was very expensive, many wine selections were unavailable, Mediocre service had to repeat requests for forgotten items. Patrons at bar were so noisy, we had to yell when we talked amongst our group. We were given a booth for 4ppl and an extra table with 2 chairs, it was hard to enter or exit our booth. Of our group 6/6 felt restaurant is overpriced and food quality should be much better. 6/6 said if they were paying for dinner they would go somewhere else. 15% mandatory tip was added to our bill.

We had a party of 11 people the service was adequate. The prices were overly expensive for the quality of food. The fried oysters were inferior as was most of the food. The total bill including tip was over 500 dollars. This was seven adults and four children. I definetely would not recommend this restuarant for the food quality and the prices.

Appetizers and desserts are stellar here. My lobster tail was delicious, every succulent bit -- but outrageously priced. Server recommended, perfectly matched wine was a winner. Interior and exterior views superb. Was an expensive treat, as lunch ran $180 with wine, tax, and tip for 3.
