Weekly Volcano Review Reviewed by: Volcano Staff

In May 2006, Duke's Chowder House openedin the old Luciano's space on Tacoma's Ruston Way next to Katie Downs. Like its sister restaurants up north, this deck-oriented restaurant also sports blue and white checkerboard colors, heavy on the nautical motif, but this version offers large windows and a big deck overlooking the bay. Everyone sitting on the patio looks like realtors poking out of a real estate catalog.

A good cup of clam chowder goes beyond mere foodstuff and can serve as a soul-soother and bone warmer. Such is the case with Duke's creamy-thick, savory chowder, full of luscious little bivalves. Inspired by owner Duke Moscrip's grandfather, John Fitzgerald Cox, this rich and tasty chowder always takes home the Seattle Chowder Cook Off trophy.

Happy Hour: Daily from 3 to 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. to close, in the bar and on the deck

Happy Hour Deals: $4.90-$10.90 appetizer and specials; $4.20 wells; $4.40 draft beers; $4.90 wines by the glass; $4.90 straight shots; $5.90 specialty cocktails, $5.40 slanted high balls, $5.90-$7.20 local spirits cocktails, $6.90 traditional cocktails including Duke's Famous Bloody Bloody Mary
