Have a fun adventure in Staunton, VA by dining at the Clocktower Restaurant & Bar. Delicious food, especially the pork rib eye with an awesome sauce! Portobello mushroom ravioli was great too!
Reasonably priced and within walking distance of the Stonewall Jackson and the Blackfriars Playhouse. Very attentive staff, excellent service!!

To sum up this restaurant in one word, I offer WOW!!!

I had the ravioli stuffed with mushrooms, and it was incredible. I arrived for an early meal, and was greeted by a wonderful attentive waitress, who let me know that happy hour was on, and took my adult beverage order. When I asked about the Italian dishes, she said they all were homemade, including my order of ravioli, complimented with a creamy parmesan/alfredo sauce, which is still is making my mouth water. Together with a side salad, and some wonderful warm from the oven Italian bread, this made this one of the best meals I have had in years, AND the price with tip was very reasonable. (If I have to drive 50 miles out of my way, I will return.)
Before I left, the lovely lady who was, I believe, the manager, came over to see if I enjoyed the meal, and we chatted for a while about beautiful downtown Staunton, and the history of the buildings down town. I sat near the front windows to enjoy the view, and watch the pedestrians go by, many walking their dogs. One very important thing was relayed to me by the manager...she spoke highly about the two young ladies who were her wait staff that evening, telling me that they had a fabulous work ethic, so often not seen in this day. She also said the owners actually care a great deal about their employees, also not always seen. Kudos to them!!!
This is a dining experience you cannot miss if you are in Staunton. I have to return to the area in a week or so, and fully intend to stop back and enjoy another meal there.

The food was so so.. However, we did order an onion ring app that was killer! This seemed like more of a local hang out and not really accompdating to visitors. The staff seemed to hang around the tables chatting with just a few people. Next time we will visit another place.
