I will give it five stars for the food and service. No full bar for those who might wish to have a cocktail, however, a nice wine and beer selection. Four stars for the "sticky" tables. Makes you wish there were some sort of place...More

One time I was walking around, cold and hungry, and I decided to get something different. I popped into the Fountain Cafe and had a soup with bread and a cup of tea [could have had a nice glass of wine, but I was really...More

Picked this place for my birthday. Again with just enough seating for about 32, amazed how one waiter can handle it with great service. We both had pasta with seafood more than enough, they even gave us a free dessert for my birthday.

The menu is so delightful and full of great choices with a lot of natural foods. It is small but so sweet!

My wife suggested this based on the good reviews. We were both disappointed in the quality and tasteless food. The sloppy joe's may have been my mistake in ordering but it was aweful. I had to put a smile on my face when the waitress...More

We are early into our Washington and Oregon trip but this is one of the best restaurants in memory. Everything else on the trip will be compared to this meal. While it’s a small place and unassuming place from the outside, the food inside is...More

Never a bad meal at this wonderful spot. Sometimes I just make a meal of the wonderful LAMB SLIDERS appetizer. 3 generous sliders with lamb cooked just right. Their pasta, seafood and specials are always well done. Cozy spot. Make sure you make reservations.

There aren't a lot of food choices in Port Townsend, especially as many of them close very early (there was a 50s style diner that closed at 6 pm...on a Friday night...during the popular film festival!). The Fountain Café is located just a street behind...More

The seafood was fresh and exceedingly tender, and that's the only good thing I have to say about the restaurant. The rest of our experience completely failed to live up to the prices the restaurant charges. The pasta was served with coarsely pre-grated parmesan (who...More

Hi there, I am just a customer of the Fountain but I asked them for you and the owner said no. I would recommend a restaurant in the uptown area (which is easy walking distance from the Pt. Hudson Marina). It is called... More
