Cool ambiance and a fun jukebox. Food is decent and they have lots of good drink options. Didn’t try the ice cream but looked good. Food was served very quickly and the waitress was very nice.

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.

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!
