They have amazing pretzels, and their Rueben sandwich was awesome. They have wonderful local beers. Really enjoy going to this place and sitting at the bar.

Had great beers there. We didn't eat, but the pretzels that passed by us were dinner-plate sized and looked delish. So did the brats!

My wife and I really enjoy frequenting "Black Bear". The owner is very pleasant to talk and kid around with and the "beertenders" are great! Purchase all the brews brewed at Blue Ridge's mico breweries plus those "other" beers. The food is good and the giant pretzels are a meal in themselves! Try it! You might meet your new best... More

My Germany husband was excited to visit a Bier Garten, sadly we were disappointed with the menu/selection, they only serve German bar food, and it's just average at that. Choices were a German pretzel, German sausage, or more German sausage. The pretzel we shared was good but the accompanying beer cheese was very thin and not very tasty. I chose... More

After shopping in Blue Ridge, we opted for a late, light lunch at the Bier Garten. Good food and good beer.

Wanting to get away from the noise and crowd, we sat on the patio. The beer was cold and the pretzel was delicious. Even though they were understaffed, the server was friendly and spent a few minutes talking to us. We will definitely be back.

We had a late lunch. I had grilled cheese while my hubby had a sausage sandwich. I did not like my grilled cheese as I didn't like the cheese used. My hubby liked his sausage sandwich but a few hours later started feeling very poorly. Would not return.

If your looking for a taste of sausage than look no further. They have a great variety of non typical kinds. We had a sampler with 3 choices and love it. We chose pheasant, elk, and wild boar. I don't even like sausage, but I do now. You won't be disappointed. You can sit outside enjoy your food and drink... More

service was great. They make an awesome margarita. We love the lunch choices and the Ruben sandwich was amazing. German potatoes was really good.

A very nice "pub-like" atmosphere. The bartender was friendly, but not pushy. Nice selection of drinks and beer, including locally brewed beer.
