The meal we had at this restaurant was the worst we have had so far on our trip. The service was fine but the food very poor, lasagne was a dried up lump of pasta with tomato sauce poured over the top, best avoided.

Clocktower Restaurant & Bar is a great place for lunch or dinner in historic downtown Staunton. The atmosphere is cozy and modern, and the restaurant appears to be very clean. They have a wide variety of typical menu items to choose from, along with highlighting some of their own creations as well. The pretzel roll is a great compliment to... More

Had lunch here on a recent Saturday when it seemed every other restaurant on the main street (Beverley) in Staunton was quite busy. The Clocktower was almost empty, and perhaps I can see why. Ordered a "Downtown Burger", but did not want the lettuce/tomato on it. The server didn't ask if I'd like to substitute something else, though. The small... More

Before I start this review I should say that, living in NYC I eat a LOT of good food all the time. Involuntarily, that's made me a bit of a snob about food when I travel out of NYC and into small towns across the US. I just don't go into restaurants expecting much. Well, I was blown away by...

My husband and I actually visited Clocktower on two separate occasions this past weekend. We first hit up Clocktower in the late evening to grab a few beers and relax. The place was pretty empty, but they did have some music going on in another location of the restaurant. The beer selection was pretty decent, showcasing some of the local... More

We dined here tonight and had a wonderful meal. Every dish was great and our server was friendly and exceptional. We will definitely be dining here again on a return visit to Staunton.

The service here is so slow. By the time they finally brought out food the pasta was cold, the gravy on the potatoes was congealed, and while the water was kept refilled the tea and other drinks did not get refilled promptly. The waitress overcharged us and had to be shown the menu price to believe it. The bread is... More

We apologize for your frustration on Friday evening while dining in our restaurant. When you are in the people pleasing business, it is extremely difficult to do so 100% of the time because as people, we are all different and as customers, we have different expectations on service and quality of food. From our side of the aisle, we strive... More

Walked past this restaurant and decided to stop for a drink. We looked at the menu and decided to stay for dinner. Both of us ordered pasta dishes and very pleased with our choices. Salads were fresh, bread good and pasta really good. The waiter has been there for years and was terrific!
