This place went beyond with a great waitress that was very informed about gluten free diets. the steamed shellfish was excellent and came with a gluten free bun. She even found me a gluten free cider. my husband had the best fish and chips not gluten free of our 2 week trip. Worth the visit.

Really enjoyed lunch and the atmosphere is wonderful. Old wooden Bar, tin ceiling and a good selection of beers. Wait staff was very friendly and did not smoother you at the table. Relax enjoy a brew and watch the people walk by.

A large group of us stopped in for some beverages and dinner. Perhaps people had taken the negative reviews to heart because there was thin patronage and we received very good service. The atmosphere was very nice and the drinks were good. I ordered an Oyster Poor Boy and it did not live up to its billing. Okay deep fried... More

Maybe it was an off day, but Port Townsend has plenty of other restaurants. This place is on the main drag, and we picked it by looking at the menu. The dinner service was very slow. The food was pretty bad (I had pasta). I really can't recommend it.

Nice big room with quite a few different selections on offer. Tables are covered with paper so you can create your own masterpiece with the free crayons to draw with.

On Sunday 8/24, after having a very tasty lunch (great spinach salad) with competent service, I accidentally left my credit card at the restaurant. I live 80 miles away! I called they reassured me that they had the card and it was locked away and to call the next morning and talk to Katie the manager. Spoke to Katie the... More

Mid August and maybe the help is heading back to school. Waited to be seated for about 10-15 minutes and never saw the bartender. Asked if we could be seated at the bar and we were. We were told the bartender was a server also so it would be a little while for him to tend to us. He came... More

We were waiting for another place and decided to have a glass of wine. The bartender quickly came to our table and had a great smile. We just ordered wine and water. Her attitude was great. You would have thought we ordered a big meal. We appreciate the people who work these places and we would come back if we... More

The bar is well-stocked; menu is somewhat limited, but food quite good. This is a comfortable local place, great for lunch, a drink, or a casual dinner.

Came here for dinner during the blues festival. Every seat was full. The service was excellent given the circumstances. Fish and chips were acceptable. Not great not bad. There are better choices in PT.
