Decent small diner

Visited the small diner today after shopping at a local shoe store. The diner was fairly busy but we were served quickly. They serve breakfast all day which is a nice choice to have. I had a chicken ranch wrap with fries and it was pretty good. My boyfriend ordered breakfast and he said it was... read more

Food was excellent. Staff was friendly. Crispy hashbrowns that aren't greasy are hard to do but they did it. My wife had the Rachel and it was very good.

This is Americana. Family owned...waitresses who care about great service...and hot off the grill food. Best hash browns anywhere. A veggie omelet that is packed with goodness. My hubby starts most his mornings here. Great lunches, too. Very busy on weekends...so expect a little wait then.

We like to support our locally owned businesses , so we have tried this restaurant a number of times - and every time the service has been EXTREMELY slow in every way. Slow to take our order, slow to bring coffee, slow to receive our food, slow to receive the check, etc. They do not bring a pot of coffee... More

Not impressed with the restaurant but had a great time with the locals. Our server was so frazzled that she would ask a question then walk away before hearing the answer. Which led to us tracking down our own coffee, silverware, and, condiments. However, I believe much of her frazzle was coming from the lack of food coming out of... More

The food is beyond a new comers expectation . That is certainly what I've taken from my experience at Bernie's Grill. The small town unique atmosphere is one of a kind . The service stayed very attentive even during rush . My dish came hot and fresh, overall I am definitely making Bernies a traditional restaurant stop .

It's where all the locals go. Open for breakfast and lunch only. The biscuits and gravy are really good. The lunch specials are reasonable priced and usually include dessert. Just good food thats filling and your coffee cup is never empty.

When in Faribault, we always go to Bernie's. Love the rueban's. The breakfasts are huge, especially the sausage hash. This place is favorite with the locals, so they are busy for lunch & dinner. Also, Bernie's soups are the best.

The food was average, but the smell in the restaurant was AWFUL! It smelled like old cigarette smoke and I was glad when we could leave. The silverware was sticky and I would have washed the table with hilex before eating, if I could have done so. The worst thing was the bottle of ketchup that was so sticky and... More
