My husband and I stopped in late afternoon on a Saturday. Starved. The restaurant we had planned to go to closed a couple minutes before we arrived. Black Bear turned out to be a wonderful, relaxing experience, a great end to a fun day. We...More

Great location--beautiful downtown Warrenton. Friendly and outgoing waitress. Great air conditioning relief on a hot day. Delicious fish tacos! Nothing for me to complain about!

Dinners are ok - nothing to write home about. I don't go anymore unless I go downstairs to the brick oven part and order pizza - that is worth it.

I had a party of 5 and we had a good dinner, a small mishap with mine but no big deal. Our Waitress was really busy but she made sure we were taken care of. Casual and fun

Call the restaurant and ask. You will prob have to visit on-site to purchase unless they can do it over the phone or via their website.
