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

If really enjoyed this little diner, I got the blueberry cream cheese pancakes and I would highly recommend them! Large portions and good prices, Faribault is lucky to have them.

We had heard good things about this place and went there today for lunch for the first time. Staff was friendly and courteous. Place was very clean. Food was very good and prices were reasonable. Place was larger than I thought it would be. Only open till 2 pm so go there for breakfast or lunch! No complaints!

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.
