Black Bear Bistro & Cellar is open daily. Sunday through Saturday, 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.


Sunday through Saturday, 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!

If you want it all, you have to try Black Bear Bistro. Great food, great service and great atmosphere. It's the first place I think of when someone says, "Hey! Let's go out to dinner!" ...but it's also a good place to meet for drinks and appetizers. My fav...the Oyster Po' Boy!! Yum!
