Description: Combining the best of farm fresh local and organic ingredients with old-fashioned family value, Black Bear Bistro serves up generous portions of great food at very reasonable pricing. All dishes are prepared to order using the finest produce, herbs, cheeses, breads and meats. Meals are complemented by excellent Virginia wines plus on tap are a great selection of Virginia brewed draft beer selections … or try one of our signature martinis – all served by a friendly, attentive staff!Black Bear Bistro & Cellar is open daily. On Monday & Tuesday, we are open for lunch only, from 11am – 5pm. Wednesday through Sunday, lunch is served from 11am to 4pm. We serve what our patrons consider the ‘Best Lunch in Warrenton’, featuring the highest quality and tastiest food that is well worth the time it takes to prepare from scratch. Plus our Quick Lunch section satisfies our hastiest of lunch patrons who need to get in and out promptly, but still leave with a smile of satisfaction.Wednesday through Sunday, from 4pm – 9pm ( and until 10pm on Friday and Saturday ), Black Bear Bistro & Cellar shifts over to the Dinner Menu adding sumptuous entrees to our list of famous burgers and sandwiches. Chef Eisenhauer also creates a special menu each night to feature dishes he’s created for that night alone!In addition to our several indoor dining areas, Black Bear Bistro & Cellar also boasts of an outdoor patio complete with wrought iron chairs and tables covered by lovely umbrellas for shade. The patio is open seasonally and is pet friendly. Bring your furry or feathered friends to join you while you enjoy a lovely meal alfresco! While the indoor areas of Black Bear Bistro & Cellar are non-smoking, we do allow smoking outside on the patio.Whether it’s a casual lunch, a hearty dinner or a special occasion, Black Bear Bistro & Cellar has flexible dining spaces which can be combined to accommodate small to medium size receptions, parties, business lunches or meetings to suit your needs and budget.

“Great lunch place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2012

Nice place to drop in for lunch. I love the freshness of the ingredients - most of which are delivered from local sources. Has a lovely patio for outdoors dining in warm weather.

“S-l-o-o-w. . .s-e-r-v-i-c-e”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2011

This was my third time to eat at the restaurant. I am vegetarian, and love their many options for vegetarians, vegans, as well as meat eater friends. There is something for all, and the food is very good. I was hoping the slow service the other 2 visits had been a fluke, but it was the same this time. Very slow, and wait staff is not friendly or welcoming, very unfortunate. Not sure I will venture again.
