The food here is really good.....be sure to try the fried green tomatoes! The service is always awesome. On a visit it was explained to us that the restaurant is a cooperative. The employees have a vested interest in the success of the restaurant and this shows in the service. Definitely my favorite downtown restaurant!

Great bar and charming atmosphere ! Just stopped in for a quick bite. And a craft beer from Virginia. Perfect afternoon. French onion soup was good not too salty and the corn crab chowder was delicious. Bartenders were so helpful and let me sample many craft beers before I chose one. Yummy. Great spot in town.

Nice ambiance and happy hour 4-7. They weren't expecting to be so busy the Monday after Christmas, also short staffed. Computers went down for a while. But those working were hustling and we eventually got our meal. My husband and I both enjoyed our selections! The restaurant was on a quaint street that had many neat little shops and antiques....

Great experience at this downtown Staunton restaurant on Friday night November 18th. Food and service exceptional. Lots of locals, and very welcoming to us as visitors from South Carolina. Great beer/wine selection. Cedar plank salmon EXCELLENT. Also we were able to utilize UBER for transportation (so that I could enjoy one more Devil's Backbone draft). Thanks for a great evening...

The Clocktower is in the lovely downtown historic district, so it's handy for lunch while shopping at the many cute and quirky locally owned shops. The wide-ranging menu goes from light bites to beefy burgers. Two things I really appreciated were the appetizer sampler, which allows you to try small portions of three starters; and the 1/2 portion of pasta,... More

By far the best meal we had in town! The Jalapeño Corn dip is to die for! They told us it's called the corn crack, and for good reason! The crab cakes and salmon were cooked to perfection. Great drink selections. We went twice to this restaurant we found it so good! Also recommend their quesadilla and shrimp po boy.... More
