We arrived in Port Townsend on Sunday morning of the Wooden Boat Festival. The Public House was recommended to us by a local for lunch so we went for it. Our lunches were very good. The service was acceptable, a bit slow but given the crowd, understandable. Our experience was so good that we decided to return that evening for dinner. Best halibut fish and chips we have had in ages. Again the service was good even though the restuarant was full with a waiting line out the door. The only negative is that it is a large, expansive room so noise can be factor especially if there are a lot of small kids. We did eat in the bar for dinner and this cut down on some of the commotion. It was clean and has interesting decor. For a causal and very good meal in Port Townsend, you can not beat the Public House.
