A great place to take your family for that good old time treat and 50's memories. We stop by whenever we are in Port Townsend

Cute 50's style diner and soda fountain! I had a delish crab and cheese grilled sandwich, the clam strips were huge and yummy and the cheese burger was a big hit too. Our group also tried a chocolate malt, coke float, shirly temple and an old fashioned egg-cream! Each of them authentic and delightful. The service was punctual and very... More

The 50's theme is the biggest draw for this restaurant and the food is average to good and the service is very good and staff friendly. If you want a burger, fries and milkshake this is a fun place to stop by but it is not a Stop and Go burger.

This was just an average "soda fountain" type of vacation place. Nothing stood out to be unique. Nice place and nice kids employed here for a quick sweet treat while walking around.

We stopped in for a mid-afternoon treat and to enjoy the juke box! We enjoyed a Coke float and a chocolate milk shake along with a basket of french fries. This is not necessarily a place to stop for a fine meal but it was the highlight of our visit because we had so much fun picking out songs and... More

I've dreamed of owning an old-fashioned soda fountain myself; so when we found this restaurant on our first day in Port Townsend, I thought this would be exactly the type of soda fountain I would have liked to have. Fixtures have been restored from other soda fountains, including the table-top juke boxes. We had a trip down memory lane and... More

I have been in with my son a couple of times hoping it would improve but honestly. The service borders on slovenly and the food takes 50 diners down several notches. I only gave 2 because it's slightly...and I mean slightly, better than mcdonalds. Aside from the rancid grease smell which will stay with you longer than the heartburn.

we only stopped in for shakes and ice cream, but were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. it was like being in an old shake and ice cream diner of the fifties. it even has a juke box that you can select records from the table. everything was done according to the times, even the lights on the ceiling were true...

I went here with two friends in May. All three of us had excellent burgers and shakes. The staff were attentive, and very accommodating towards our medical assist dog. I would return!
