A comfortable restaurant with well-prepared food and good service, although the bar was a liitle slow. In my opinion, this is one of the better restaurants in Port Townsend. No water view, but good food.

Quaint luncheon place inside an old storefront. Had fish & chips which were pretty good. Was told by some of the local historians that this was one of the best restaurants in town.

We were very disappointed in the food as well as the service. I've been all over the world and when you pay for a dinner for 5 guests over 250.00 and tipped well, should have been treated well. I would never return. I was actually...More
