I was really looking forward to dining here on my trip with my sister. The ambience is great, an the ice cream items were great. However... The burger was dripping with oil, had no seasonings and the fries were also bland. The staff was friendly, but they would talk to each other in spanish around us and it made the... More

Now I have to tell you straight up that I only gave it 3 stars as the food was average. Nothing to rave about but not bad either. If you are looking for unique, authentic 1950's experience this is most definitely the place. Fully restored jukebox with the song selection boxes right at your table. Restored milkshake machines make the... More

Went to the Soda Fountain for a coffee having walked round the town during the morning. Very friendly staff and a real step back in time! The décor mirrors the Fifties from the checker board flooring to the Juke Box with a wonderful selection of 50's and 60's music. A must see when visiting Port Townsend!!

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.
