My husband and I went here for the first time today for brunch! We enjoyed some drinks in the lovely atmosphere and our waiter was friendly as well. We did have to wait awhile for our entrees to be served but our waiter (Natalie) and the manager on duty (Nate) were absolutely accommodating. They went out of their way to insure we had ... read more

Bear Branch Tavern is a lovely spot! It doesn’t look like much from the road, but it’s actually very spacious and comfortable inside. There was unfortunately a very long wait for the back porch, but (even setting COVID aside) it’s really beautiful back there, so I can see why. We’d love to dine out back in the future. They have a nic ... read more

So nice to celebrate our anniversary - outside! In Vienna! At a bar! Excellent food and service (oysters, steak frites, shrimp spinach pasta), fun cocktail and good beers. Swap out the 70s 80s playlist with any more current music feed and this place would be perfect.

We started with the nachos and hummus appetizers, and those were so good that we were nearly too full to enjoy our entrees! But only nearly. The Buddah Bowl was a delicious vegetarian option.

My wife and I had a fabulous time sitting at the front bar for dinner today. All of the folks behind the bar were very attentive and were able to answer all questions on the food options (which helped since everything looked delicious). They were also all very knowledgeable about the beer options and the brewery from where they came ... read more

Wow. Had the Pork Belly entreé and was blown away by the flavor. I will be back to try all of the rest of their creative comfort food menu.

This place is really a hidden gem--beautiful inside and a wonderful outdoor deck. Even more amazing was the service--some of the best I've had, just really personable and kind. The buttered rum was really phenomenal and I was pretty happy with the pretzel-cheese appetizer and my pesto chicken sandwich. Not the best food around, but d ... read more

Incredible service, atmosphere, and the wings are the best in NOVA that i've found. Can't recommend strongly enough, would give 10 stars if it were possible.

BBT immediately became our favorite place in Vienna upon our first visit! Called to get on wait list and received a text link where I could monitor our place in the queue. Awesome!

The food was wonderful, the outdoor seating was comfortable, and the wait staff was amazing. I would love to try more menu items and some of the different beers on tap.

Great place in downtown vienna to sit outside (or inside) with friends and family and get some drinks and good food. Gets busy when weather is nice so expect a slight wait. Plenty of parking and entrance is in the back.

Always great food and drinks. Changing menu for variety and great daily specials on drinks and food Tuesdays $1 oysters. Fun place on huge patio with great heaters overhead and firepit. Music once in a while will resume when clear and good outdoors deck. Shrimp and grits is super and right out of New Orleans along with Abita beers.

Great location and atmosphere! Nice website. Easy online ordering process. We had 4 entrees among the group. One (a holiday special) was amazing! The others? Not so much. Not horrible, but far from the best... soggy fries, very liquid mac and cheese, etc. We expected a little better at that price point. Heads up: They are *extremely* ... read more

Good size outdoor patio (but non-working patio heaters to keep in mind if you're there in cold weather), prompt service. Good drink selection and a kids menu, but no hot chocolate sans alcohol for kids?? Ample parking!

Excellent service at Bear Branch Tavern. The Manager, Ken was extremely helpful and the server was a gem. They helped make our daughter's birthday celebration special. The outdoor patio was a delight and felt very COVID safe. The whole place has a great vibe overall.

Thrilled to have found this gem in Vienna. Definitely our go-to brunch spot now! Can't wait to invite all of our friends. The cocktails are delicious, especially the house mulled cider and irish coffee on a cold day. Great selection of local craft beer, amazing food, I could go on and on. The grilled wings are DELICIOUS! Great servic ... read more

Went here for the first time. Had a bit of a wait to get in - but call ahead helped. This place has a really cute atmosphere. There's nice outside seating but we ate inside.

Wow. Stumbled upon this place off "trail" by the Whole Foods. Sat in the back on a 50 degree day where they had heaters for each table. The quality of the food and service was fantastic. We had brunch, started with oysters, and I loved my faux-mosa. Great vibe also. So glad we went. I can see they pick their wines, beers and cocktail ... read more

2/1/21 Last year I watched as this restaurant was slowly becoming what it is today. The other day I finally got a chance to check out out myself. This restaurant is different. Normally most restaurants you enter from the front. In this case, parking is in the rear and sides of the building. To enter the restaurant, you MUST ENTER FRO ... read more

Absolutely one of the best places in NoVA right now. Owners and waiters are all friendly, the food is EXCELLENT. Haven been there 5 times in the past two months, and the food is consistently excellent. And as a bonus, they have heaters and an outdoor section, so if you ride by on the W&OD, you can stop in for a quick drink and some h ... read more
