Wednesday is a fried chicken special. Dinner included a half chicken, salad, choice of potato, side of spaghetti or tortellini. All this for less than $12. Chicken was deep fried to golden brown and was extremely tasty. Everything was very good but much more than I could.

Conveniently located near the court house and the Pontiac museum, as well as other down town attractions. Better than average, family style dining. They have a full bar too.

Best restaurant in Pontiac. I got the lasagna and it came out just right. Not in the area too often, but I'll definitely come back when I'm in town.

We always enjoy Bernardi's II when in Pontiac. It is our first choice for food, service and affordable meals. If one likes Italian food, try Bernardi's II.

we were very impressed with the modern attractive building with an open bar. We usually go to Capponis or Monas in Toluca but never been to the one in Pontiac, we were very impressed by the atmosphere and the food !

We went on a Wednesday night. We all had the fried chicken family style. The meal comes with bread, salad, 1/2 chicken, spaghetti or ravioli and potato. If you leave this place hungry it's your own fault. We had enough leftovers for the following days lunch. Our waitress and food were awesome. Only drawback is that it can be noisy... More
