We go to Bernie's with friends and family frequently and the food is great. The scallops, fish and prime rib have always been excellent. The canned veggies/ not so much but we go for the main part of the meal. The wait staff are another story. Last time I ordered the fried scallops and clams, asked if I could have... More

Went to Bernie's for lunch and had a great meal. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are very generous.

Bernice's is a landmark. All you have to do is mention the train and everyone knows who you are talking about..very delicious meals, their prime rib is the best and ample for left overs..fun place for supper..go early as they do not take reservations..

Food was just ok .... More like a greasy soon type place. Atmosphere is a drag and whole setup is best set for people who don't care about what type food they eat.And plenty of space for you heavier folks.

We sat in the dining car...very comfortable. The food was great and more than you could possibly eat. Took the leftovers home and had another whole meal. The service was good but not the most attentive in the world.

Always great at Bernies! The scallops melted in your mouth. My daughter loved her chicken and my husband really enjoyed his prime rib!
