My wife and I eat here during the summer a lot. The food is always extremely good. the staff wonderful. I love the fact that when you ask them how they got their name there's always a different story. I recommend this restaurant to anyone that comes to the Outer Banks.

Sat at the bar with my friends to catch the game, ordered dinner at the bar as well. Nice portion and good quality. Don't expect much 'dinner' service if you're eating at the bar but the bartender did try to keep our drinks refilled. Appetizer menu wasn't much.. . . Good atmosphere to enjoy the game.

We had the pad thai, the cuban sandwich, pizza, and the mahi mahi. Everyone enjoyed their meals and my teens wanted to go again during our stay in Nags Head. We had the bang bang shrimp as an appetizer and it was very good! I would definitely recommend Bernies and will go on our next trip.

I loved Barefoot Bernies. The place is decorated in a really fun island theme. The food was pretty tropical as well. Had fish tacos with pineapple slaw. They were really good. The portions were good, the price was reasonable. Service great and pretty quick. Next time I'm in the OBX I will def come back.

The atmosphere is great, the staff is laid back but are always there to take care of you when needed. Over five days we ate there three times and the food was great every time from hotness to timeliness and the taste was off the charts.

I cannot say enough about the delicious food and consistency of Barefoot Bernie's. We eat at the restaurant, but more often get to-go, and it is always consistently great. I love their salads, especially the fried chicken salad on the lunch menu (and if they aren't too busy you can usually ask for it at dinner too) and the steak... More

I stopped here anticipating a simple seafood dinner after a long trip and was pleased to get perfectly prepared tilapia and interesting, tasty sides -- delicious, unusual slaw and waffle fries with a tangy remoulade. This is not a white table cloth atmosphere, but if my meal was typical of the fare, then the creative cuisine would fit in a... More
