Our seasonally driven menus are sure to have something to please all tastes. The dishes are rooted in classic European cuisine, but transformed through inspirations from the Pacific NW.
Our locally inspired concept is based off of the fallen bridge crossing the Tacoma Narrows, Galloping Gertie. The bridge that fell, November 7th 1940, is now home to one of the world's largest octopus, legend has it. Endowing our locally family owned restaurant it's name, is the rich history of Gig Harbor. The fallen bridge and its inhabitant, inspired French Diver Jacques Cousteau to visit the watery remains, meeting the famous Giant Octopus.
Within Gig Harbor's beautiful history our goal is to offer unique experience with fine dining in a cozy setting. Gertie and the Giant Octopus brings a classical approach to European cuisine and wine presented in a nostalgic, sophisticated, rusticity.
