The Swiss is an historic landmark nestled in the ever-growing UW Tacoma campus. 

The Swiss offers the finest in scratch cooking - from mouth-watering sandwiches to creamy pastas, as well as appetizers, seafood, salads, homemade soups, desserts and daily specials. Our pan-fried oysters are a Tacoma favorite. We are open to all ages; kids menu available for the younger ones.

Our bar serves ales varying from the light domestic to the hearty import, with just about everything else in between. We also have specialty cocktails, wines and other bottled beverages.

Art lovers will enjoy perusing our Dale Chihuly glass display above the bar as well as a large collection of works from various local artists. 

The Swiss has live music throughout the week. Great local and national bands play blues, reggae, top 40, country, rock and alternative. A large dance floor invites all to join in the fun. Four pool tables, shuffle board and video games round out the entertainment. Come explore a little corner of Tacoma's history and let us welcome you to T-Town!

Originally started as The Swiss Hall back in 1913, the building had seen better days. In 1993, the owners rolled up their sleeves and started what turned out to be a labor of love, restoring the building to its original splendor.
