We had dinner mid-week on a Thursday for Italina night and it was great. The restaurant was packed, mid-week, so that should tell you something.

Bernie's was recommended to us and did not disappoint. The food is french inspired but produced in a home type kitchen. The fresh rolls were cooling in their pans in the laundry room. The atmosphere is romantic and homey at the same time with mismatched...More

Bernie's menu may change according to what is freshest in the market. If having Italian is that important, I suggest you call ahead to whatever restaurant you pick. There is a good Italian in Dahlonega; see reviews... More

Please be aware that Bernie's Restaurant is a small family operated business. We do have seasonal hours as well as certain occasions that Bernie's Restaurant is CLOSED to the general public for small/private functions both on and off premises - we don't like to disappoint anyone who would like to dine with us. "Imagine" a quaint southern cottage, nestled in the hills of beautiful north Georgia. A peaceful setting, delicious fresh food, and a warm friendly atmosphere. The tables are set with linens, sterling silver and fresh flowers to enhance your dining experience. Bernie's is about the lost art of personal service.
