Very neat place with good food

Good atmosphere, good food & good service! My husband had a Cuban sandwich which he said was "awesome" while I had a 6" pizza that was really good....the crust tasted homemade. We had a party of 10 but didn't have to wait any extra time for our food, and the waitress was on top of refilling... read more

Enjoyed Bernies. We had a few drinks, an appetizer and two entrees. All were great and we got out for a reasonable price (about $65). Seafood dishes were very good. Bar staff knew how to pour a good drink.

Good food, friendly staff, and a nice menu. The food was good, but not great. The atmosphere was nice, but lacked a bit of imagination. I think this is more of a watering hole, than a dining establishment.

Came here after passing on another place. Fairly good crowd, some locals. Service needs polishing, but it was early in the season. Seafood (mahi-mahi) was very good; crab dip a bit soupy. I'd go back again.

We were headed somewhere else, but when we saw that place we just went across the highway to Bernie's. It was busy, but we sat at the bar. The Raspberry Pink Lemonade (cocktail) was way too sweet....but the meal was scrumptious! The Brazilian Steak Carnival was very unique and so very delicious! Spiced and cooked just right (to order) with... More

Fifteen +/- of us descended on Bernie's for Tapas Tuesday. Veal Parmesan friends had rated best, my Aki Bowl was just what I wanted for a late supper, little bites of sushi tuna, rice, fresh ginger, carrot shreds, and more. A clean bowl. And with a glass of Pino Grigio and great bread to top it off. We had a... More

We stopped at Bernie's for dinner after a long drive from D.C. Our server was good and the food was yummy. My husband got a Mahi sandwich and I had a grilled cheese. We would go back when we visit the area again.

Great service. This was really good food, that was overshadowed by the rowdy bar crowd a few feet away. Two visits, same experience. Maybe just my timing.

Being from out of town we wanted to try different places than what we have back home. We were seated immediately and attend to immediately. We then began to look at the menu...the prices DO NOT match the prices thru TripAdvisor so they should be updated. We both got Bernie's Burger which was no let down but, as the "sweet"... More

The service here is always impeccable. We visit Bernie's every trip to OBX, because there is always something for everyone, and we're a large group. The little pizzas are always a big hit with the kids and teenagers. The burgers are cooked just right. I had the mahi mahi tacos... they were very tasty; I especially love the salsa on... More
