I loved my dinner at The Bar at Burns! it's sort of like eating with the owner instead of with the rest that throng to this Tampa Icon. I got to taste their phenomenal aged beef and the perfect wine. This room is truly for insiders!

This eclectic steakhouse is worth every penny. Loved the kitchen and cellar tour as well as the dessert room tour. Make sure you don't eat for days prior to your visit.

I want to love Bern's. I really do. It's just that every time I go there, I don't feel like it lives up to anywhere near the hype. The servers have been less pleasant and genuine than the ones I've had at Perkins or Denny's. The food is average, including the desserts upstairs. You're just paying a lot more for... More

In September 2014 we had the pleasure to visit Bern's Steak House (Tampa). From the valet to their desserts our entire experience was 5 star. Their dessert room is a MUST see. We would like to thank our server Mathew for the personal tour of the wine cellar and kitchen. When in Tampa you must visit Bern’s !

I have been going to Berns for nearly 20 years when I come in town. It is the only place out that I will eat steak. The wine list is like no other that you will see. Reasonably priced wines by the glass. Steak in any cut and at any weight. Steaks come with house salad, French onion soup, baked... More

I have enjoyed Bern's for more than 26 years. I eat there at least twice a month. And I have never had a bad experience. The food is exceptional in every way. The service is top notch. The dessert room is a separate treat. This is a must stop if you are visiting Tampa. You will enjoy every single bite.... More

I am not sure where to even begin with my most recent experience at Bern’s. My husband and I frequent the restaurant, usually with friends, at least once every couple of months. Truly, we have never had a problem. The food is always delicious and the service is typically impeccable. However, this was far from the case yesterday, September 13,... More

So, I was here for a work dinner along with 3 other colleagues. My boss was in a private room with another party. We were on a very tight schedule and we conveyed that to the waiter. THe service was outstanding. We were all served the French onion soup (very good), a salad with choice of homemade dressing (excellent), a... More

My wife and I joined my parents for a weekend dinner at Bern's Steakhouse, this place is truly unique and here are the highlights: 1. Best Wine Collection on Earth - don't know how a small place in Tampa can rival places in Europe and Asia but Bern's has the largest private collection of wine in the world! 2. Tremendous... More
