We are local Port Townsendites. There are many restaurants in Port Townsend, but so many just have "pub grub" but not the Fountain. I love this restaurant and the presentation of the dishes and service. Here are photos of 2 of their hors d'oeuvres the...More

We have never been disappointed here. Though small, we have always managed to get a table. The service is great, not rushed and the food is comfort food but always original. The wine prices are great and every trip seems special. We shall return!
