Every time we come here, we go home with a big doggie bag! I had the surf & turf, prime rib and whole belly clams. The batter was lite on the clams, unfortunately more strips than whole belly, prime was a bit fattier than I like but the augratin potatoes were fantastic. My husband had the prime rib and baked...

My friend and I went to Bernie's today at around 2:15 in the afternoon. The place was packed and loud. I hate loud. You end up having to just about scream at your dining companion for them to hear you. That's not what I call an enjoyable conversation. Whenever I go to Bernie's, I always get some kind of sea...

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. I had the prime rib luncheon special and was impressed with the 2 inch thick cut of meat served as ordered. I had a side of real mashed potatoes and green beans which were to my liking. My wife...

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..
