This place was excellent. There were 12 of us on a wine tour. We booked this place in advance and they were able to accommodate food allergies and special request. The food was amazing and the staff very welcoming.

We ate dinner at Bernie's for our Anniversary. The Steak Au Poivre was amazing, and my husband loved the Raspberry glazed Duck. Everything was fresh and delicious. We will be back!

My wife and I ate here and are we glad we did. We had to go outside to make sure we weren't in Atlanta. We never thought we would have this kind of dinning in this neck of the woods!!

Bernie's menu may change according to what is freshest in the market. If having Italian is that important, I suggest you call ahead to whatever restaurant you pick. There is a good Italian in Dahlonega; see reviews... More
I was very surprised that you would even post this message??? To judge a restaurant and give them one star just because they happened not to be open on one particular day is ridiculous. I worked there on thanksgiving and the one hundred people who dined there that day all left happy, looking forward to coming back!!! Bernie is in her 26th year in business. You do not achieve that without a lot of hard work and sacrifice. So she decided to close one day to give her staff and family a break. And this deserves one star??? Let the people who dine there be the judge.

Please be aware that Bernie's Restaurant is a small family operated business. We do have seasonal hours as well as certain occasions that Bernie's Restaurant is CLOSED to the general public for small/private functions both on and off premises - we don't like to disappoint anyone who would like to dine with us. "Imagine" a quaint southern cottage, nestled in the hills of beautiful north Georgia. A peaceful setting, delicious fresh food, and a warm friendly atmosphere. The tables are set with linens, sterling silver and fresh flowers to enhance your dining experience. Bernie's is about the lost art of personal service.
