Downtown Staunton Eatery

Although not everything on the menu is available and not every beer listed over the bar is available, you might still find something to eat and drink at this downtown restaurant. I was surprised that the fish and chips special had what tasted to me like fresh fish. When I asked if the fries were... read more

Always willing to try a new place (to us), we happened on the Clocktower Restaurant & Bar after an hour in a wine bar (wine and appetizers) for an eclectic evening of dining. I say this to explain why we had none of the appealing appetizers on the Clocktower menu. But to be sure the Caesar salad was a hit... More

On a one-night stay outside of Staunton, we chose the Clocktower as our late supper place after finding that it was one of the few open on a Monday. We parked down the hill in a large lot that is free during evening hours. The wait-staff and the manager ( who circulated among the tables at one point) were very... More

The menu was varied and modern with traditional offerings. It took more than 5 minutes to get the waitstaff attention when my steak arrived rare instead of medium rare.

Unbelievably bad service. Can't comment on the food because after waiting for an hour it hadn't arrived and we had to leave.

Had lunch at the Clocktower during a recent visit to Staunton. Server was friendly and so was the bartender. My hubby had a flight of beers (nothing special for $9). He had a Cuban sandwich and housemade chips. I had a grilled chicken club. We were both very disappointed with our food. First, it took almost an hour to get... More

Went last night which was a Thursday night. Service was lousy to say the best I can. We were way overcharged on our bill and it took over an hour to correct. Food was mediocre. The next time I am in the area I will not go back to that place. I ordered a salad with grilled chicken on it... More

Nice meal at reasonable cost. We wanted a light meal so we shared a Caesar's Salad an a club sandwich with onion rings. It was good food though certainly not memorable. The staff are friendly people and this bar/restaurant is comfortable and informal, even for newcomers.

My husband and I visited here about 3 in the afternoon. Neither parking nor seating were an issue at that odd time! When we entered we were greeted and told to sit anywhere we'd like. Service was quick! The lunch menu was sandwiches, wraps and panini. My husband had the cuban panini, which he said was very good. I had... More

The waitress recommended their fried green tomatoes. They were really good! The Turkey Spinach & Artichoke Panini was good.
