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

Open only until 2 pm this slightly flavorful diner has some above average cooking, adequate service and the townies love this place. Can get crowded on Sundays. I had the sausage hash which was more potatoes than sausage but a huge portion. Wheat toast was from a bread bag as opposed to fresh baked. My partner has the chicken "chest"... More

Bernies is a favorite for after church brunch on Sundays. It can get pretty busy, but it is worth the wait. My favorites are the Sausage Hash and Chicken Stir Fry Salad. It is always fun to see what coffe mug you end up with, as they are all different. It is like at home when you have a collection... More
