Was staying at the Northern Hotel and this great Diner is attached. They are only open for breakfast and lunch; closing at 3 p.m. they also seem to have a nice menu of sundaes, splits and shakes. Was seated quickly and offered a beverage right away. Their coffee cups are nice and big with tasty hot coffee. I ordered the... More

I ate at Bernie's over the course of three days while in town for a conference. The experience was hit and miss. The breakfast item stuffed banana bread piqued my interest on the first try. The banana bread was dry and crumbly. The cream cheese stuffing was just sweet enough and abundant. The berry compote side added a tangy note... More

The milkshakes are awesome and large! This diner is what all diners should aspire to. They had the best fish and chips I have ever had and again a great milkshake!

Had a team brunch here with some amazing people from Visit Billings! What a great spot for food! From the coffee to the Belgian Waffles and home fries, we had no complaints! I highly recommend Bernie's to anyone visiting Billings!

We ate breakfast at Bernies. The staff was friendly and efficient and the food was good. We had biscuits and gravy and the Denver skillet. The skillet was exceptional! The biscuits and gravy were good, but not your traditional white gravy and sausage. There were some other spices in the gravy that were unexpected...not bad but not what one is... More

I'd like to demonstrate my incisive analysis by pointing to something that's not superior about Bernie's. But if I did, I'd be lying, because this gleaming eatery has no negatives. It's always spotlessly clean, brightly lit, bustling, and flawless in service. It's got a menu that's the longest and most diverse I've ever experienced in a diner ... and perhaps... More

We ate twice in one day at Bernies, as we were staying in the adjacent hotel. It's a modern diner, cute atmosphere with 2017 prices. Service was excellent and prompt. Breakfast: the French toast was ok; the Bernies pancakes which came with bananas and macadamia nuts were not satisfactory. The bananas were fine but the nuts were ground and also... More

The club sandwich is fabulous. You can barely fit it in your mouth. Lisa made it even better by suggesting a Sriracha mayo side for the sweet potato fries.
