My husband was working in Poulsbo and discovered this amazing place. We have actually driven from Puyallup for their amazing lamb sliders - and I don't even care for lamb. They have an amazing way - if we ever become wealthy, we will move close...More

I went for a date a few months ago, was really disappointed in the service, and the food has never been that great, but I knew that. We lingered until closing, and when we were contemplating having a dessert, the owner made it clear they...More

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

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

The Fountain is our favorite restaurant in Port Townsend. It's open for lunch and dinner, I would suggest calling in a reservation as this place is very popular. The menu has a nice variety of dishes and there are daily specials. After three years we...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.

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
