We had a reservation for 4pm cause it gets very busy at this restaurant and we were a party of 6. I was a little scared when our drinks we ordered took about 20 minutes to get, but once we ordered everything was spot on, including the food, it was all very good, 2 turkey dinners, 2 prime ribs, 1...

Quality is more important to me than quantity, but the huge portions at this place are amazing to behold. Huge slabs of prime rib and steaks go by as if you were a few yards from the stockyard. Somewhat of a diner along a side road over to Westover Air Reserve Base, they seem to have a huge base of... More

We've been to Bernie's a couple of times, but not recently. In the past, everything was top-notch. We arrived with a guest celebrating a birthday. We discovered that we didn't get a train car table we reserved, but, rather, a table at the far end of the train under the air conditioning. When asked if we wanted to wait for... More

Excellent food, but a bit of a wait. The wait was worth it though. I had clams but tasted the prime rib and it was excellent too

A must go to restaurant. Food is great and there's a very good chance you won't finish it. Lunch prices are more than reasonable. Seafood is excellent huge portion. Prime rib special every day. I can't say enough good things about this place.

Ate at Bernie's this week after not being there for over a year (we live out of town). It hasn't changed at all and seemed to be better than I remembered. The baked meat loaf was a diner type special and did not have a drop of grease in the plate. I could not finish it all, but it became... More
