TACOMA'S NEW SPORTS BAR >>>
No longer will Tacoma residents drive by the corner of Alder and Sixth Avenue wondering what's going on with the building once labeled "ABC Café", though it was long defunct. Overtime - Tacoma's Bar and Grill opened March 30 at this location, bringing new life to the space.
Owner Chuck Bayha managed to create a sports bar environment that also remains family friendly, with hand-painted local team mascots and a cozy but comfortable atmosphere perfect for grabbing a beer and a bite to eat. Have kids? The 21 and older area is sectioned off, and minors are allowed in a majority of the restaurant.
Appetizers such as hot soft pretzels, bourbon beef skewers, chicken wings and sliders with your choice of pulled pork, beef, cod or chicken salad are easy on your wallet, ranging from $4 to $7, and are half price during happy hour from 10 p.m. to 12 a.m.
The menu is made up of standard pub fare, with an emphasis on steaks. All of the meat is sourced locally from Stewart's Meats in Roy. Ruben, French dip and club sandwiches range from $7-$14. Grilled meats and fish make up the bulk of the dinner entrees, featuring grilled Alaskan salmon ($20), grilled chicken breast ($14) and a 12-ounce New York steak with a mushroom sauce ($18). Prime rib is featured on Friday and Saturday ($16 for 12-ounce, $22 for 16-ounce). All dinner entrees come with your choice of sides.
The star of the show is the Overtime burger, a massive 10-ounce of ground sirloin, with bacon and a fried egg on top ($11). The meat was juicy and packed with flavor, but the bun wasn't quite substantial enough to handle it. The dinner order of cod fish and chips ($12) was decent, with moist, flaky fish and a crisp batter, but was a bit under-seasoned.
Ultimate Fighting fans rejoice: Overtime will be showing all of the UFC fights free of charge, starting April 21.
