Quality varies but service is excellent

We started with the pork won ton tacos. They sure load them up, so it was pretty messy, but our waitress had brought us extra napkins ahead of time. I thought they were okay, my husband thought they were quite good. He especially enjoyed the mango salsa and the depth of flavor it provided. He... read more

Went shopping in the downtown core Superbowl weekend, after shopping at Hoglunds - need a place to eat. Stumbled on to Bert & Ernie's. What great decor. Food was good and portion size large. A little on the pricey side. But worth it. A must go.

the food at Bert and Ernie's is very tasty! I really enjoyed what I ordered and so did everyone else but I was with. It is not a fancy restaurant but they get the job done which is most important.

We've going going here for over 20 years. There was a period several years ago where they weren't a place I would recommend, but with new management this place is really turned it around. Nice selection of sandwiches and main entrees. One of my favorites is the Hot Seafood Salad, excellent value. Also they've added some Canadian items to the... More

Stopped here after a local recommended it. Service was good, I had the fish taco and the presentation was amazing! I wish I could say the same for the taste. It was bland and not filling. My husband had a burger and pouting which was amazing! I ended up eating half of his meal because it was so good. I'd... More

My adult daughter and I stopped for dinner here on Friday, 12/19. Although it was a busy evening, we were seated after only a 10-minute wait.
