I live an hour and a half away and drive to Bernie's for their food. An incredible restaurant worth the drive. It gets very busy at dinner time and especially on the weekends. You can make reservations but expect to wait. Go here early before the rush or during the week. They are so popular that they have been known... More

We arrived without reservations around 3. We were promptly seated and offered drinks. The wait staff are pleasant, attentive and efficient. My buddy had the regular cut prime rib med. rare which arrived exactly as ordered. It was huge living up to Bernie's reputation. I had the fisherman's platter which also was a good portion and properly cooked. Our only... More

We went there for breakfast. The portion size was amazing. I got an omelette and my sister got 2 scrambled eggs which looked like 4. The toast was nice and thick bread. Service was very good as well. Will definitely go back

My husband and I go to Bernies often. It seems like everytime we go, we have this waitress Debbie. She is the most rude waitress I ever had in my life. No personality, does not even acknowledge you. Practically throws the food in front of you. Never comes back to the table to ask how everything is, and if you... More

Our waitress Felicia was great. Sitting by the window this time of year was a bit chilly. The atmosphere was casual and the... More

I've seen this on several TV shows and decided to try them out. They are known for their three sizes of Prime Rib (little caboose, regular and conductor cuts). I got the regular cut because the conductor cut is two bones and huge. Mine weighed almost 3 pounds. It was cooked to perfection with very little fat. My wife got... More

I've been to Bernie's many times and always for the SAME reason, awesome sized portions of great food. It is so good to know that I will get atleast 2-3 more meals out of my leftovers and it's still great tasting.

I've wanted to go here for months after seeing them on the Phantom Gourmet and finally had the chance last night. After making 7:00 pm reservations and the hour drive we arrived 20 minutes early to find they just started to seat the 5:30 reservations???? WOW It took us about 15 minutes just to check in and they said which... More
