We eat here almost every time we visit Port Townsend. Lunch is a bargain. Dinner is reasonable. Friendly staff. Quick service. Eat in the back room with the water view, or even outside on the back deck in nice weather. There is also a tv...More

Never been to PT, but met up with my stepsister and had lunch there. The food was good, but there was no air conditioning and so it was very hot. LOVED their pico !

We walked the length of the main street looking for somewhere to have lunch. We ended up at a older plaza with several discount stores and this restaurant. The menu looked good so, in we went. We were seated down some stairs at the back...More
