This place is truly amazing! The staff is super friendly. The food is out of this world wonderful. It's super clean with quick and actuate survive. Not to mention that the prices are more than fair for what you're getting. 10/10 would recommend.

Had to wait a long time to be seated and to get our food. Made for a poor experience. Food was just ok.

I give this place a 3 1/2. We were seated for breakfast in a reasonable time and the hostess brought water. We then sat for over 15 minutes, no greeting, no eye contact from a wait staff. Finally a wait person spoke with two tables...nearby and started to turn away from the table right next to us and I hailed her down. She looked over and said she would be back. Then she came back and brought out her charm and was attentive through the ordering. I ordered a basted egg and wheat toast. I got two fried eggs and cold toast served by someone else. My mate ordered the traditional breakfast with bacon, toast and fruit vs potatoes. His eggs were fine, bacon was good, also had cold toast and fruit was fresh and flavorful. Our waitress didnt check on the food after it was served. The hostess asked well after it was too late to get hot toast or change the eggs. I realize everyone is busy, short staffed etc. Eye contact and hello go a long way. Another significant issue for management is the place needs an exhaust system that works so you dont smell like fried bacon when you leave.More

Delicious food, good menu variety, friendly and fast service, and a great vibe. This felt like a restaurant in Disney when we walked in (in a good way) - super clean, bright, cheery, and the perfect re-imagining of a 50s diner decor like it was...out of a movie. The food we got was good (banana bread stuffed French toast with huckleberry syrup, the breakfast burrito and coffee) and I wish we could have come back to try a few more options! The menu had all the standard breakfast options, but also a few fun unique twists like the banana bread French toast or "vacation breakfast" - chocolate cake and a milkshake! Definitely recommended.More

Bernie's Diner is a gem. Very nice wait staff and a very casual atmosphere. Had breakfast there 2 mornings during a very recent stay in Billings. Lots of selections and everything was very good. Definitely recommend Bernie's Diner.

Definitely grab breakfast at Bernie's when you're in town! French toast was delicious and I asked for scrambled eggs on the size and the plate was huge!

We stayed overnight at the Northern Hotel and had breakfast at this restaurant off the lobby. The location is excellent. The decor is quaint. The food was good. It is obviously quite popular because we had to wait to be seated. The service was slow,...but it did not matter to us because we were on vacation. But it might not work if you are in a hurry.More

Can’t comment on the food because we never even ordered. We were seated and then ignored. I actually went to the counter thinking maybe we had to place the order there because no one came to our table- not even to offer coffee or water....I was told she’d “be right with us”. After waiting another five minutes we walked out.More

We ate breakfast at Bernie's both days of our visit to Billings. Great menu; friendly staff; reasonable prices; fun decor. By far the best place in downtown Billings and it looks like a lot of locals think so too.

Excellent breakfast in the heart of downtown Billings. Perfect window lined corner location with a great old-school feel. Portions and large, well prepared, and tasty. My wife and I had different Benedicts and both were excellent, and the potatoes were great as well.

Everything was great! I had the Avocado and Tomato Benedict. The only downside is that there is a state mandate to wear a mask while walking around. There were people not wearing masks and employees didn’t say anything.

First thing in the morning I need coffee! And what a pleasant surprise Bernies is! It is a cute, bright, windowed diner on a corner in Downtown. The coffee mugs are quantity oriented (for the coffee guzzler like me), and the friendly, attentive service kept...them filled, and even sent us out later with to-go cups! I don’t always eat breakfast, but couldn’t resist the menu. We had the breakfast burrito, adding the green chili over top and avocado inside, which complimented the pulled pork and chorizo stuffings and served with a side of berries. It was giant! Also offered were smaller dishes served quickly with a friendly manner. This diner could be a daily stop for me!More

Our waitress was very kind and attentive. She has worked here for quite some time and it showed. She knew what to recommend and what to stay away from! The food was what i expected from a diner style restaurant. The biscuit was very different...than what one is likely accustomed to. It was earthy and herb filled, which paired well with their sausage links but sometimes you just need a big fluffy buttermilk beauty underneath that blanket of heavenly gravy!More

always think of this diner after hours have closed, I believe they close at 3 pm and I seldom eat restaurant meals before that hour. The Country Fried Steak & eggs was worth getting around earlier to enjoy! very delicious and seasoned just right!

I am not much of a breakfast person, but breakfast at Bernie's was not just the best breakfast I've ever had in a restaurant but one of the best meals of any kind I've ever had at a restaurant. The Kobe and eggs was excellent....The service was good too. THe decor is fun and it's nice and bright and clean. Even if you're not staying at the Northern, this is a restaurant worth going to.More
