We chose this for dinner because one of our kids loves trains. Such a fun little family owned place. There was a little wait for a table (it was Saturday at 5:30pm), but our kids enjoyed the little train outside as a distraction. Good food...More

Love this place, great food and great customer service. I usually go for breakfast and love sitting in the train part. Prices kinda high tho.

Bernie's has a very great reputation and one certainly gets more food that one can reasonably expect to eat. It is highly recommended that one call ahead to reserve a time for either lunch or dinner especially on Friday or Saturday or Sunday

Staff was very polite and food was awesome. Large portion so you always go home with a doggie bag or very full. They are busy especially for dinner. I recommend your make reservations.

We were with a friend and hadn’t been to Bernie’s in awhile. We all had prime rib. Even the small piece is thick and hangs over your plate. The service and food is always top notch.

You should ask the waitstaff. Always tell your server if you have a food allergy or concern. Most times they can accommodate special requests
