Gertie and the Giant Octopus opened its doors in March of 2017 in
Gig Harbor - WA.
The name of the restaurant was created inspired by the Tacoma narrows bridge, nicknamed "Galloping Gertie" and the legend of the giant octopus that lives under it's ruins.
Gertie and the Giant Octopus is a family owned bistro. We gather most of our ingredients from local farms and we pride ourselves with providing fresh seasonal dishes. Each dish is carefully deigned and personally made by our professional chef.
The motivation behind this "outside the box" concept for the neighborhood was to bring a true and much needed European Style Bistro to this diverse community.
