My friend and I originally were going to another restaurant, but it turned out to be a tad too pretentious for us. Luckily we continued up the street and discovered the Fountain Café. We could not have asked for a better experience for our first night in Port Townsend - great service, delicious food, and cold beer. The café provides... More

Between the Roasted Walnut and Gorgonzola Penne, the seafood stew, and a crab special, we all had thoroughly enjoyable meals. Excellent service as well. You can tell they take great pride in their food and presentation.

I have been to The Fountain Cafe many times. Each time has been a great experience. The restaurant is very small, so be sure to make a reservation or have patience if you have to wait. It is intimate (but not necessarily romantic -- though is certainly a nice date option) with good food and friendly servers. I have been... More

I get to Port Townsend infrequently but over the past five years have eaten here at least three times. The food is always outstanding...served hot and tasty. I love the chicken marsala...the best ever. My companions enjoyed their meals as well...one had the linguini and another the entree salad loaded with vegetables...each one loving their choice. The place is small... More

Came here with family for a great dinner. Was advised to make reservations for our group of 5, and glad we did! The Fountain was packed! Staff is super friendly, and food is very good. Try the Kale Caesar Salad. Yum!!! The Fountain is a step above anything else in the area. Definitely our favorite Port Townsend dinner spot!

Eaten here quite a lot, and usually enjoyed it very much. This is the essence of Port Townsend, Victorian interior, funky but good quality. Prices a little higher than usual for this town, so for those who want to try it at not too much cost lunch is probably a good bet. The warm spinach salad never fails.

For us it's both the journey and the destination. Since we live on an island about an hour away from Port Townsend, heading out to lunch at The Fountain Cafe is a fun journey with a worthwhile destination. This past Saturday, we spent a couple of hours walking around Port Townsend, from the Farmers Market, uptown, to the waterfront and... More

The place was busy on a Saturday night. The staff was welcoming and efficient. We had very good mussels. Then a nice little salad. Lots of chardonnay. A little pricey. The mushroom risotto was excellent. Hot and rich.

We will make a special trip to PT in order to eat and this tiny wonderful restaurant. It is open for lunch and dinner and I think, occasionally for brunch. I haven't visited in about 6 months, but over the past 10 years or so, the food has been outstanding. There are generally a couple of specials and then the... More

I thought this place was excellent. It is very small and there are only a few tables. We had the appetizer special which was a medley of shellfish with a Chardonnay broth. We had to have a second order of bread to sop up the tasty broth. Our entrees were flavorful and large. The cooks work their tails off back... More
