After a day of wine, beer, spirits, meads, and hard cider tasting, a sit down dinner was nice. We had the shrimp and grits, and shrimp bisque. Both were amazing. Has outdoor seating for nice days. Great staff.

You can never go wrong with the Bistro! It’s always steady. You will get quality food and drink with good service! Their patio is the best in Staunton for outdoor dining and drinks. The California Tacos are awesome!

Feels more like bar but offers really good and inventive food. Would get five stars if it were cleaner. Fried green tomatoes are offered with pimento cheese and jam of kind. Falafel very tasty, as are unique hush puppies. Go.
