Did not expect such a sophisticated menu in small town Port Townsend, but this is almost worth the trip in itself. We dropped in without reservations late on a Saturday, and were accommodated without a fuss. Small but thoughtfully curated wine list, great seafood.

Not because it was amazing; it was one of the only spots open on a Tuesday night in October. Halibut and salmon were good. Filet not prepared to order: it was ok. Menus are paper and stained and kind of gross. Leaves a bad first...More

Visited the restaurant on a busy Saturday night. Easily got a table and had great drinks, food and service. They make exceptional cocktails for a great price. Fun place to get together with friends while enjoying the historical downtown area.
