We ate here while staying overnight in Staunton on a recent trip. The staff at our hotel recommended it and the crab dip appetizer. The dip was great (as advertised) as well as the fish tacos - nicely cooked with a cajun seasoning. The restaurant itself is in a row of restored mill buildings, a bit noisy downstairs but quieter...

The crab dip is a must try! We considered going back for drinks and more crab dip. Great little restaurant and bar.

We started with the Crab dip, appetizer. Very good choice! I ordered the Fish tacos. They were very good. I thought the music was a little loud, but basically it was a very enjoyable evening. The food was top notch, and the service was excellent!

This is my favorite place in town for eating outdoors. Dogs are welcome on the patio. The food is consistent and good.

Service and food were very good considering the time of service. The restaurant was working on the prep for a busy Friday night service but provided good service and tasty lunch.

Interesting menu with an array of good choices on the lunch menu. But the burgers are what stand out. Fresh meat, generous size, perfectly done. Generous portion of really good fries. Server was efficient and pleasant. Prices are moderate.

Get off I 81 at Staunton for some great casual food. This bar / bistro has nice waiters , great food and a bar in the middle of seating . Atmosphere is easy going and comfortable. You enter directly from the street , no steps , thru a lovely iron gate. I assume there is patio service in nice weather.... More

Came for a meal with my family was was not disappointed!! Wanting something a little more brunch-ish, I looked at their Sunday menu and settled on the Ranchero Eggs (without the sausage because of being a vegetarian). The waitress was extremely understanding with my change. My husband got their Power Food Salad from the regular menu and couldn't have loved... More

Great all around place. Only remark was it was difficult to make a reservation. Had to be online only which seems to lock you in. I prefer to speak to a hostess. The person we eventually spoke to wasn't sure if they did or did not accept reservations.
