The location is easy to find, and we noticed that there is a lot of parking nearby. As we walked down to our requested seats outside, I noticed that there were several beer taps at the bar, serving an interesting assortment of beers from around the area. We quickly arrived at our seats, and were greeted by a knowledgeable waiter. I say knowledgeable because he must have spied my looking at the taps and asked us if we would like a beer. I enjoyed a New River Pale Ale that hit the spot just right on a night with great weather, at least when we arrived.
Below is the appetizer that we ordered, Hummus of the Moment. While a fairly straightforward dish, it was composed of fresh ingredients that you can easily see in the picture, so I won't ramble on about them. It was a great dish to enjoy with a drink before dinner. Black Bear Bistro takes great pride in their use of fresh and local ingredients, and this dish did not disappoint, tasting as if it were picked earlier that day.

A couple of final random items for your use. The restaurant has several vegan dishes on the menu, so you can check those out online if that is your thing. They also have a great selection of beers on tap. While not the many tens of beers that seems to be popular these days, they did have a good example of most major beer styles, and the sever was very knowledgeable about the beers.
