Staunton via Amtrak in February

Husband and I are planning a quick weekend visit in Staunton this Feb - Amtrak from Charleston arrives Fri around 1:30, departs 3:00 pm Sunday.

Looks like there are many great restaurants with local food and/or music to choose from on Tripadvisor - so hoping to narrow our choices - suggestions are appreciated!

Any that might serve bloody mary's during brunch?

Vegetarian best bets?

Jazz venue?

Thanks!

We went to Staunton about 18 months ago to see a play at the Blackfriar Theatre (which I highly recommend). We had lunch at the Mill Street Grill and enjoyed it very much. Here's my review: tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g58210-d5192…

I'll second Mill Street. It is where the locals go for good food and a great atmosphere and its a hop, skip and a jump from the train "station".

Do keep in mind the Staunton station is not staffed.

Too bad you'll be here next month and not in the summer when we have Jazz in the Park. There are lots of great bands and a good time is had by all. Beyond that, I have no recommendations. The Clocktower used to have live music but I haven't been recently so I really don't know their status.

There is live music all around Downtown Staunton! There are 12 - 15 restaurants, each with a different flavor and atmosphere and many of them offer entertainment some nights during the week. Downtown Staunton is a lively place! There's the Blackfriars' Playhouse too (Shakespeare theater) and there are even two movie theaters downtown. There are also a lot of interesting shops and a bunch of art galleries. The Amtrak station IS downtown. So you can literally walk to all the restaurants and shops. Where to stay? Stay at The Staunton Choral Gardens B&B which is only 5 blocks from the station. You can hop on the free trolley to get there, walk, or the owners will pick you up. ENJOY your trip to Staunton! It's a worthwhile trip.

"The Staunton Choral Gardens B&B which is only 5 blocks from the station. You can hop on the free trolley to get there, walk, or the owners will pick you up."

I'm sure the owners of this inn understand there can be legal issues with transporting clientele. I would hope they are fully bonded and insured for this.
