In my opinion the Fountain Restaurant in Port Townsend is by far one of the best places in the county to enjoy a great meal. Service is great and, as always, the food is excellent!

Always good food and great service. There is an excellent menu with delicious specials. Nick runs a top notch little restaurant. It is small and cozy and perfect for a night out.

The food is always excellent and the service is second to none. We had requested the only round table in the restaurant but, when we arrived, we found someone sitting at that table and a different table reserved for us. Not sure how the staff managed it, but the young people sitting at "our" table offered to switch tables with... More

After reading all the fabulous reviews, we couldn't wait to try this place for our wedding anniversary dinner. The service was excellent and the restaurant was quaint. Not sure if they were just having an off night but the food was not very good at all. My husband had the steak and it was so tough, he couldn't even chew... More

Rated so highly and being so costly, we had higher expectations of this restaurant. Service was great, but the food was disappointing. The evening's house special (a seafood mix in wine/garlic sauce) was ok, but the pasta seafood in tomato sauce was actually downright bad. Should not have made it out of any kitchen, even at 1/4 the cost. We... More

We've eaten here twice and now it's on our "favorites" list in Pt. Townsend. Located in an unassuming narrow building above the main tourist street, it's a bit off the beaten path and unassuming from the outside, but warm and cozy inside. It is small, so can get crowded, but we were there recently on a winter weekday evening and... More

I met a friend for dinner on Saturday night and hadn't been to The Fountain, before. We had a nice table, excellent and friendly service and the food was beyond my expectations. I had a steak with blue cheese sauce that I am still dreaming of, days later! My friend had the Angel Prawns and said they were amazing, as... More

Great gorgonzola squash soup! Outstandingly delicious. The reuben was also yummy. Loved it there and will stop again when I'm back in town!

Had the Reuben special and had some of the best pastrami I've had in awhile. Really well done Reuben with just the right size salad as a side. Others at the table had chicken salad, pasta special, and the burger. Everyone ate everything!

Thank Atrandom13
