“Unusual, broad selection of app's”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Rec by SJ Inn. We were traveling, not allowed to stop for lunch, so starving when we got there. But it was happy hour! Appetizers reduced and draft beer on special. Two of us ordered mixed drinks (Cosmo & margarita) since it obviously thought of itself as a bar first. (Cool, artsy interior btw). One guy order draft, "well, our draft system is broken". He said ok, give me a bottle on special. "We don't sell our bottled beer on special." Really??? Then don't even advertise what you can't offer. It will remain a punch line for us because of its absurdness. The mixed drinks had NO alcohol to taste or feel. Kay should know, she had three and felt nothing.
Thank goodness, the food was fun, diverse, and very flavorful. I know I was starving, but I think it was good. I would go again for a casual evening if I lived in town, which seemed to be most of the clientele. Skip the mixed drinks, flat wine and go with beer, even it not so special!
Oh, and server didn't seem happy about honoring dessert coupons from the Inn, after the four of us spent over $100.

“Bad Service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

The server we had was noticeably paying more attention to other tables and spending more time chatting with them, then whenever she came to our table she hardly gave us the time of day; just would say things like "What do you want to order?" and "Ready yet?" She was not friendly, and did not ask us how things were tasting or even thank us for coming in. My meal tasted terrible. I ordered the tofu scrambler and it barely had any tofu, most of it was acorn squash which I can't stomach, and ended up only being able to eat a quarter of my meal. I will only go here for trivia from now on, not for their brunch.

“Great atmosphere, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We were visiting from DC and staying at the local stonewall jackson inn that recommended Clementine. The drink selection was excellent (great beer selection), we ordered a great bottle of wine. Menu had some great options for all eaters, food was cooked perfectly, wait staff was super friendly. Will stop by again for sure as we pass thorugh to WV for climbing.
