Banana Pie with chocolate sauce...need I say more

The Rum six ways dessert drink was an amazing end to a wonderful dinner. The server suggested the banana pie with chocolate sauce...the first item listed on the menu. It was amazing. A must try.

This place is amazing. Price is reasonable - private rooms are fun, the menu is incredible and the portions are ridiculous (big). Also - the list of desert drinks is like nothing I have ever seen. I drank a 108 year old port!

This is the dessert room at Bern's Steak House. Reservations must be made as you sit down for dinner. After dinner, your party is escorted upstairs to the dessert room which consists of a number of private rooms, one of which will be solely reserved for your party and it can be just yourself, a couple, or more. The atmosphere... More

Sooo many choices! We went after dining at Berns and split the Trio of melting cakes as well as the brown sugar dessert. It was tough to pick though - they all looked so good!

The amazing choices of dessert vinos, and the desserts are out of this world. Anything you can image they have. Really neat round tables with curtains for added private dining.

We ate at Bern's Steakhouse and then went to the dessert room for dessert. It is a really neat place. You feel like you are the only couple/group in the place. It is hard to describe ........... segregated booths? Great for a date! The banana cream pie was definitely the hit with our group of four. It was just the... More

We always go to the Dessert Room after dining at Berns. Its special decor and delicious desserts complete our very special evening. Love the piano bar.

Although I am not a fan of Bern's Steakhouse, the dessert room is not to be missed. It's all about the experience in the main dinning venue, not the food, although good not great. However the experience is what you go for. The dessert room however is a different story. You must see it to believe it. And the desserts... More

No question; Bern's Steak House is an icon for food and wine lovers across Tampa. That being said, you can also just go to the desert room and experience some of the best sweets, cordials, ports, coffee drinks and ambience in the world. From the wine cask booths to the old school, in-house radio system porting in the onsite pianist's... More
