A very nice place to have dinner. We were there on a first Saturday (Art Walk night) and had no reservation, so we were lucky to squeeze in later in the evening.

Great lunch on a rainy day in Port Townsend. Options available included fish tacos for celiac (gluten free) diner, which were very good (particularly considering the distance from Mexico). Highly recommend the berry pie for dessert.
