Yesterday, my husband and I went to Bernies for breakfast and were very disappointed for the second time. We got there early, about 8:30 am and there were only two other parties at tables and one man at the counter. We both ordered breakfasted that included home fries. They were cold. But worse than that, they were loaded with RAW... More

My good friend took me out to this restaurant for my birthday. I'm always looking for new restaurants to enjoy in New England and this was a treat. I will be coming back again. The steak was so huge it looked like it came from a dinosaur!

The food is great the wait very long unless you make reservations and even then can be a wait. So if you have the time and patience try. The train is a fun place to sit my daughter loved it.

So my wife and I go here probly 1 every 3 months. Sometimes for lunch and sometimes for dinner. Always have a great meal and I've liked all my servers. This place is always packed out so I expect to wait to be seated and for my food. I've never waited more than 45 min to get my main course... More

All of the food we have had at Bernie's has been excellent. We love their fish - excellent portions, fresh and a great price

Our friends and myself and my wife being retired meet for lunch a few times a month. Yesterday Friday 11/14/2014 we decided to go to Bernie’s Depot. We arrived around 11:30AM and the line was out the door. We decided rather than wait to go for a little ride and then return in about an hour. This we did and... More

We booked a table in the train car for my birthday this year. First impression: we had a reservation and we showed up on time. They still managed to keep us waiting AND managed to seat another party ahead of us IN THE TRAIN CAR and from what I could tell they didn't have a reservation. It was also a... More

We were able to dine in the railroad car and surprised at how the voices carried, So our diner time was a bit noisy, but the food was very good. Reasonable priced with very good service. We shall return

The best fried whole belly clams I've ever eaten. The seafood platter was great. It included whole calms, scallops, shrimp, and fried fish. You might want to share because servings are gigantic. Service was excellent. You'll love eating in a caboose because the restaurant is a train car. Never a disappointment.
