Eat at Taps

Taps at the Guardhouse is temporarily closed with plans to begin hiring shortly and reopen by May 2022.

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!
