When you’re in the mood to dine with distinction, there’s no better place than the Pacific Grill. It leans toward the expensive side, but the experience is worth it during those moments when kitchen, floor and wine staff hit on all cylinders together. Steaks, chops and seafood rule. Creative gourmet treats such as meat candy and stuffed tater tots bump their happy hour to new levels. Stellar wine list.

In the ground floor of the restored Waddell building at 15th and Pacific Avenue, Pacific Grill is a man’s place with dark wood and brick; it’s like a supper club.  It’s the kind of place where I like to order my scotch neat and start with a crab cocktail.
