With limited cool places to eat in Kill Devil Hills, this place is awesome. Space is very limited so there will be a wait. It is worth it. Food is great, has variety for family. Not too loud so you can have a conversation. TV's with sports are on as well. Has bistro tables that have high seats which are... More

We tried Barefoot Bernie's on a recommendation from a local...it was a good choice! Our waitress gave us a few tips on favorites...hers and others. We had meatloaf sandwich and seafood enchiladas...both very good. Service was good...staff was friendly and helpful.

It's easy to blend in with all the other restaurants on the main road, but Barefoot Bernie's was a very nice surprise. Quality of the food was great -- especially the Red Snapper Reuben (outstanding) and the New England style clam chowder. Several healthy choices as well, plus good kid food -- so our whole family was happy. Server had... More

We recently visited just for an afternoon snack and had the appetizer specials which were a great price at only $4 each. The macaroni and cheese came out piping hot and it was the perfect mix of cheese with noodles cooked perfectly and then topped off with crunchy panko bread crumbs. Yum-oh! We also ordered the chips with chicken and... More

Bernie's is a burger place and they should stick to it. When they try to make a burger entrée sound like a five star French entrée they fall short of both a good burger and a good meal. Bar attracts locals. Restaurant attracts tourists. If you want a good lunch there are many better choices that do not pretend to... More

Barefoot Bernie's has a great bar and great bartenders, beer selection is very good, always check to see what the special beer is for the night.. I enjoy the food, they have just about everything you could want on the menu... Give it a try I'm sure you'll like it...

I've eaten at Bernie's multiple times over the years. The food and service are always good. Nothing fancy, but I've never been disappointed.

Stopped in on a Sunday evening with my son. Decor was very nice inside. The outside of the place needs a bit of updating. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Food came quickly to my table. Taste of the food was mediocre at best. I ordered the fish and chips and was let down that it looked like they used... More

We were on a eat and drink stroll and this place will be on the return trip list. Food was great and a nice selection of beer is available.

Finding a place that's open all year long in the OBX area can be a challenge . It's pot luck when you hit the road , but at least this pot we stumbled into was filled with good cooking & a fair value for what we received. Food was good, drinks were good & the place was family oriented so... More
