Delicious & Creative!

Very creative restaurant! We had their seafood pizza and crab dip. Our meals were delicious and prepared just right! Our server was polite and professional. Our Martinis were creative and good this restaurant was everything that we imagined it would be.

Stopped in and had some cool tropical drinks at this bar & grill. Had some appetizers and a few shots. Friendly people to talk to, met some from out of town and the bartender and wait staff were excellent. Stop in if you have a chance, highly recommend.

My husband and I visited Barefoot Bernie's recently and were very happy with our decision. They were reasonably priced, had options other than seafood, and had Gluten Free options which was or reason for choosing it. My southwest salad was very tasty and a great size, and my husband's mahi lunch portion was perfect too. Great find!

We were looking for a moderately priced not overly tourist infested alternative to typical generic seafood fare. My guess is the locals love this place. Atmosphere was excellent. Service was excellent. Guacamole was exceptional. My wife and I were fooded out so we opted for a couple of the salads couple of the salads and they were awesome

Great restaurant with excellent food. We go here every time we visit the outer banks. It has a tropical vibe, but is done tastefully and doesn't vibrate your eyeballs with neon colors everywhere. The staff is attentive and friendly. My only complaint would be the small parking lot - go for an early dinner or lunch, or else you'll have... More

Wanted to try someplace we'd never been and SO glad we picked Bernie's! Service and food was very good! But if you're looking for traditional fried seafood, this wouldn't be the place to go. But venture out and give it a try!

Wish I would have started my vacation here! We went on a Friday night at about 5pm and was told we could have a seat in about 5-10 minutes. We asked if we could sit at the bar and told yes, they would text us when ready. We ordered drinks and had just started looking at a menu when I... More

Wife had the jerk pork and it was outstanding and fell right off the bone . I tried the Cuban style steak it was awesome and... More

My daughter & I needed something to eat but we were headed home (VA) and didn't want anything heavy so we ordered off the Lite Fare menu...OMG so good, "lite" usually means lite on flavor, but not here. Brittany, our server, was super attentive & kept our drinks filled as well Great stop!
