Bringing WaterFire to life has been a family journey for lifelong residents of the Yakima Valley, Jim and Gail Davis, with their son, Executive Chef Derrin Davis. Together, the WaterFire team creates a destination for your casual nights out and your special events.
While you may see them primarily behind the scenes, Jim and Gail brought WaterFire to life as a family passion.
Yakima is my home town and I’m excited to bring WaterFire to life for our community right here where I was born and raised. My passion for culinary arts and hospitality led me to earn my B.S. in Culinary Arts and Food Service Management from Johnson & Wales Culinary Arts in Providence Rhode Island. From that point I dreamed and planned of developing something amazing here in Yakima showcasing the flavors of the world, especially the Pacific Rim. The amazing agricultural abundance in our region creates the perfect canvas to bring those flavors to life. The local dining scene has grown up much in recent years and the great chefs and restaurants in our valley are all creating an exciting atmosphere. It’s a really cool time to be a part of the restaurant scene here in Yakima. My wife, Lisa Davis joined our WaterFire team in 2020 and has been instrumental in keeping things running smoothly.
