    Wonderful!!

    My husband and I used Chambers Bay and KemperSports as the bartenders for our wedding. Kate and her staff were wonderful to work with. During the planning process Kate was super responsive and helpful as we decided on the specifics of our package. On the day of our wedding every aspect of the bar and the additional service staff went off without a hitch. We are so thankful and highly recommend Chambers Bay and their staff.

    Chambers Bay's reply:

    Molly - Congratulations to you and Brad! We really enjoyed being part of your special day! Don't be strangers, come see us at the Chambers Bay Grill anytime...

    A HUGE thank you for taking the time to share your feedback! We really appreciate it!

    Best to you both!

Chambers Bay is a great venue for an event: one of the best views in Tacoma, Great food and great service!

Wallflower Photography Wallflower Photography Wedding Photographers

Hands-down, Chambers Bay Golf Course offers one of the most stunning sunset views in Tacoma! We've really enjoyed photographing there and were able to get a fun set of portraits, with backdrops ranging from the huge Puget Sound view to the unique remnants of the old gravel mine. It's one of our favorite local spots and definitely worth a look.
