Eat at Taps

TAPS will not be reopening this summer for full service. Staffing issues have been a constraint, and we are working on plans to revamp and reopen when the conditions are right for providing our guests with the best experience. However, we are planning some pop up events at TAPS during the summer, which will be announced on our website and social media.

We miss serving you from our historic Guardhouse! Please reach out via email if you are interested in food and beverage team employment opportunities.

Reveille Café is open, and we hope you’ll join us there. 


Built in 1904, the Guardhouse provided “transient” accommodations for soldiers who breached military discipline, usually as a result of unauthorized activities in the rough and tumble taverns on Port Townsend’s notorious Water Street.

Today, the Guardhouse is a place to “shed your shackles” and enjoy a pub atmosphere featuring artisanal small plates and regional craft brews, ciders, wines and spirits. Stop in and enjoy local art exhibits, live music, and a great atmosphere!
