Today’s new place was Duke’s Chowder House on Ruston Way. I’ve been to this building before when it was other restaurants, but not to Duke’s. We had a great table right by the window and enjoyed the combination of sunshine and bay. The fish and chips was top notch and we also tried most of the chowders (clam, nw seafood, crab and lobster). Duke’s has six locations, all in Pierce and King Counties. Afterward, we drove through Pt. Defiance and saw an amazing number of raccoons!
