Food not bad

Food was good. Service not so much.The hostess was abrupt and quickly sat us. The water came to the table once. Noisy do not go if you like to eat in quiet.

Very accommodating to let us in the restaurant 10 minutes before closing time, and on a cold cold night. We arrived at the house we were staying and found plumbing issues. So we had not intended to be so late getting dinner. Amy was a delightful waitress, the food was great, and we never felt rushed or scolded for coming... More

The menu has more items on it than the normal restaurant and it's all good but some of the food is great and that's what I like about Barefoot Bernie's. Lots of good beer and a great bar... Give it a try, I'm sure you'll like it.

Shrimp poboy is great. Burgers great. Fish and chips perfect. Great fries and onion rings or whatever they call them. Need to ask for the onions. Lots of different options and open all year.

The food was beautifully presented, absolutely delicious and we enjoyed the fact there were things on our plate such as polenta we would... More

During my February birthday trip to the Outer Banks we visited Barefoot Bernie's because of its proximity to our hotel, we were very hungry, it was one of the few off season places open and also had an interesting curb appeal.I had a burger and my wife the fish and chips. The burger was good (slightly above average); however, the... More

Bernie's is now a tradition...we stop on the way in to OBX, often during our trip, and now on the way out! This is one of those few restaurants (we now have two...only two) in which every single meal, every visit, every customer service experience...is outstanding! Recommended items to try from this visit....the Bison Chili (omg, I'm drooling again this... More

We went on a chilly day in February and it was calm and pleasant. Our waitress, Elsie, was great. I had Carolina grits and shrimp--a dish I'd never had before--and was very pleased. I would recommend this restaurant to others. The portions were large.
