The Belmont Restaurant Review

: An authentic 1880s saloon, this unique restaurant with a waterfront view serves American seafood classics. Although Port Townsend isn’t known as a culinary destination, The Belmont is one of the better lunch and dinner choices in the area. Enjoy hearty crab chowder, tender Dungeness crab cakes, or cioppino in a zesty tomato-saffron sauce. Main dishes also include a selection of well-prepared pastas, duck with Bing cherries, and steak. Lunch offerings feature several hot and cold sandwiches, gourmet salads, and lighter entrées with poultry and fish. The wine list focuses on American selections and takes in some sleeper hits.

Went to The Belmont expecting to have a pleasant lunch in charming Port Townsend. Unfortunately, we were sorely disappointed. My friend ordered Crab Louie, which turned out to be a scoop of lump crab on a bed of lettuce. The crab was riddled with small pieces of crab shell. When she pointed this out to the waitress, she was simply told "ok - order something else". Rather than look through the menu again, she asked for the Dover Sole, which I had ordered and was not too bad. Her Sole came immediately and it became clear why - it wasn't cooked! The crab stuffing was still cold/frozen and the sole itself was raw! Again, we called the waitress and again, she just said "ok - I'll take it back". By this time, my friend had completely lost her appetite and decided not to try her luck at another order. The manager happened to walk by and we explained the situation to him. He said they didn't shell their own crab, but he'd mention it to their supplier - no apology at all. When told about being served raw sole, he said he'd talk to the cook - again, no apology, though he did say we wouldn't be charged for my friend's meal.
