Excellent sandwiches. Numerous choices of types and sizes of hamburgers, all good. Many types of pizza. The pizzas are terrific. Extensive menu though typically I've gotten sandwiches. Comfortable seating indoors and outdoors.

Enjoyed sitting with my wife near the front window and people watching. The steak & cheese sandwich was very good, the fries not so much. The sausage & chicken gumbo was good not great. The beer was cold and we enjoyed listening to Pink Floyd on the sound system. Have been there many times for the pizza which appears to... More

Was looking for a half way point to meet my son and granddaughter for lunch. I searched Tripadvisor and decided to give this place a try. The menu has a burger called the Hangover which has a fried egg and habanero sauce so I knew my son who loves all things hot would really want to give this a try.... More

My wife and I had lunch here the other day and were very impressed. She had the Beef Au Jus and said it should have been served with a spoon because the au Jus was more like gravy than broth and was excellent. I had the Muffaletta which was huge. I ordered the half, as our waitress suggested, but it... More

Chili dog was very mediocre, shame! Pizza was average, beer choices were good. Nice atmosphere, took a long time to be served (25 minutes). Shame, nice location and setting, but very average food.

After discovering that Claire's was fully booked, my friend suggested that we give the Black Bear a try. It is a quaint restaurant on the main street on the historic downtown. They had a few tables free at about 1:20pm and we had our pick. Our server was very nice and didn't crowd us. We shared an order of garlic... More

The food, the service, and the atmosphere were all enjoyable. If you're visiting Warrenton (which I recommend), this is a great place for lunch or dinner.

My wife and I were out on a weekend drive and found this place on Main Street in Warrenton along with other quint little shops. The atmosphere was good and reflected the nice small town. Bar-type food was fine and more than I expected with oysters on the menu, fried just right. Lots of different hot dog dishes, some with... More

In town just for the night, SO found this place. First seated us at table in front of restaurant-too cold with the draft, so we asked if we could sit at the warmer bar, they said sure, then bartender asked our son if he was 21-no. So he said sorry, DMV says can't sit at the bar. So we politely... More
