Went in for root beer floats only. They were fine, but you can't really mess those up. Having sat there for a while observing things, I don't think I would eat a meal here. It's a bit unkempt. It's cute though.

Stopped in here for afternoon lunch. Shared a large chocolate milk shake with husband. He had a burger..".yummy" he said. I had fish and chips. Big portions and very tasty. Sat on the outside deck and enjoyed the water view. Inside is definitely a 50's diner theme. It was busy & people looked like they were enjoying their meals. Fun... More

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.
