Had lunch here to get out of the weather while waiting for a friend. The food was average. They do offer the old-time phosphate sodas as well as ice cream and the like.

Hubby wanted to stop in Port Townsend on our way back to Seattle. We walked around a little and found this diner to eat lunch. It was packed with lots of people coming in all the time. We ordered burgers and fries and onion rings...More

If you want to step back into time, eat here. I expected to see Richie Cunningham and his friends. Food was good, Milkshake was good. Enjoyed the ambiance.

Loved the atmosphere. The service was average. The food was about what you would expect for a typical "burger"joint. Good stop after a busy day visiting a neat town.

This restaurant had seating outside overlooking the water as well as inside. The decor was authentic. The traditional sodas, floats and sundaes looked amazing. Good service.

The summer terrace on the water is lovely. The fish or grilled cheese are good choices. And since it’s a fifties theme be sure to have a treat from the soda fountain.

Stop here for a cone with Old Fashioned Ice Cream, a Sunday or banana split, or a variety of other floats and Shakes. The atmosphere is fun with checkered tile flooring, pink and green bar stools and bench seating at booths, and table side jukebox....More

The Nifty Fifty Soda Fountain is a delicious step back in time. The decor and equipment are a fun to see. The food and beverages served were just right too.

Conveniently located along the Port Townsend Bay, we have a wide selection of tasty menu items to choose from, including our giant burgers, fish and chips, and of course, our delicious ice cream sodas and specialty sundaes. Let us transport you back to a time when the jukebox played the hottest tunes and Saturday nights were spent enjoying a burger and an ice cream sundae at the local diner!
