We went there Valentine's Day and didn't have a reservation. They got us seated after a 20 minute wait, which I thought was excellent give it was a busy night for restaurants. The staff was good and the food was very tasty.

We stopped in for a break between typical mealtimes. It was a group of 4. We had the place to ourselves. The food and service were good.

I usually eat here for lunch. Their sandwiches are the best...especially their Reuben . They make their own potato chips ...addicting! They also have a large on tap beer selection.

walked three blocks in cold January rain to find friendly and wam atmosphere. They gave us nicely written history of Staunton and friendly vibes. Good meal, good drinks, good conversation

We stopped here for lunch while traveling in the area based on Tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. We had the fried green tomatoes, which were excellent. Nice and crunchy & not greasy because they were served piping hot. I had the Philly cheesesteak with homemade chips & my husband had the Reuben sandwich with onion rings. All were again... More

We found the clocktower restaurant last summer. We were driving down 81 and needed to stop somewhere for lunch. So we went to there for lunch. Quite good, again. Note, the potato chips are homemade; the adults loved them, the kids did not due to the seasoning.

The service on our two visits, was slow, and the options on the menu adequate. For the Clocktower, think lunch or tapas and drinks or a late night stop for the bar and a snack. Many people "dine" there, but my take on the friendly place is that food is adequate but unremarkable.

I ate here with a friend. We split the crabcakes and the drunken shrimp, and I'd order both again. They were fabulous. The crabcakes were almost all crab (very little filler. The drunken shrimp were battered and fried, but weren't greasy or over cooked. They've got a good selection of beer that uncles includes local brews. The creme brulee was... More

We ate here twice during our recent visit to Staunton. This is a family run business that pays attention to detail, including prompt service. The food is very good. We enjoyed the drunken shrimp platter, cedar planked salmon, salads, parmesan garlic bread, tomato basil soup and cream of mushroom soup. Good quality food at a reasonable price.
