Great time at Bernie's. Went there on vacation with family members and everything was excellent We had a combination of different dishes (pizza, Mahi Mahi sandwich, Coconut shrimp and more) and everything was great. Our waitress (didn't really catch her name but Tharis was on the receipt) did a great job.

After a not-so-good experience last Summer, we went back to Barefoot Bernie's and glad we did! When we entered, we were greeted immediately by a friendly hostess and our excellent waitress, Amy, introduced herself to us, told us about the specials and the soup & fish of the day. The menu is varied and they also have a "lean" menu... More

We asked where we could get a good fried fish sandwich. Bernie's delivered an OK fried fish experience on a slow Friday afternoon. The menu offers enough interesting things to make me return, but I would avoid it when it is more crowded & noisy.

One of the few places as a local we continue to visit. Nice bar environment, good selection of food. Have never had an issue with anything on our many visits with them.

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.

For over 20 years we have enjoyed OBX and always went right by Bernies. Our last night we decided to check it out and it was such a great surprise, we will enjoy it this coming season. The food was beautifully presented, absolutely delicious and we enjoyed the fact there were things on our plate such as polenta we would... More
