My husband and I went for lunch. The food was awesome and the waitress was great. Huge portions and best fish and chips my husband has ever had. Will be back. A must to try.

The prime rib here is to die for. The portions are outstanding. The only downfall is if you visit here on a Friday or Saturday without reservations you'll have a long wait so I recommend making reservations. The atmosphere is casual but the food makes...More

Are repeat reviews of the same restaurant useful? I'm skeptical-unless in the reviewer's view the restaurant hasn't been treated fairly or there has been a significant change in the restaurant's performance. This review has a third rationale for revisiting the subject. We have visited Bernie's...More

Awesome. Every dish is fresh, affordable and huge. The lunch cut prime rib will blow you away. It has to be 2 inches thick and well over a pound. The fried whole belly clams is a must. Great atmosphere on the train.

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