Bear Street Tavern is a small spot that is right below the Bison Restaurant. They are owned by the same people and share the same venue (of sorts). The patio out front can be nice, but they also have a patio out back and a nice bar inside. The menu offers up standard sandwiches with pizzas as well.

I had a steak sandwich with chorizo potato chowder, while the girlfriend ordered the Italiano pizza. The steak sandwich was soaked in au jus already and melted cheese. The meat slices were cut pretty thin, so you get multiple layers of meat with each bite. The au jus sauce was rather thick though and tasted too heavy of beer. I wasn't really feeling the sauce, but the hoagie roll was awesome.

The pizzas are what they seem to be more popular for. They come to about 11' in size and are enough for 2 people or one hungry person. The Italiano had a wide variety of toppings like sausauges, prosciutto, peppers, mushrooms, etc. The pizza was done well, with loads of toppings and cheese without too much sauce.

Apparently, the place was featured on You Gotta Eat Here, but I never saw it so no idea what he ate. I would imagine it was the pizza as everyone seemed to be getting pizza at this place. The servers are friendly and good looking to boot. Place is great for groups and I wouldn't mind coming back for lunch if I'm ever in the area again.
