The Dining Room in historic downtown Staunton

The Dining Room is located on North Augusta Street in historic downtown Staunton.

I headed into Staunton today to meet friends at The Dining Room Restaurant for lunch and conversation on an overcast, cold day in the central Shenandoah Valley. I was able to watch the snow flurries throughout lunch out the large front window that overlooked Augusta Street and see people passing by who were brave enough to be out in the blustery winter chill.

Crab soup was on the menu but I ordered my favorite ... chicken salad with cranberries and dill dressing on a croissant. My friends had Philly steak sandwiches and soup, and then we all ended with a white chocolate creme brulee. Yummy.

Tuesday nights are Jazz Night from 6:30-9:00 with Jennifer Kirkland and Bert Carlson. Have a seat at the bar or grab a cozy table and give a listen.

Try the wide array of seafood selections that include oysters ($16), scallops ($17), King Crab legs ($14), mussels ($15), trout ($14), lobster tail ($26), coconut shrimp ($16)... or maybe some stuffed chicken ($15) or parsean crusted chicken ($12) ... or surf and turf ($17-$26), pasta ($10-$12), filet mignon ($24) or maybe the New Zealand rack of lamb ($26). They also serve burgers, sandwiches, and salads.

Stop by for good times at The Dining Room.
