We hadn't been to this restaurant in a long time. The food was still great and plenty of it. It was a Monday night so not real busy so we stayed and visited a couple hours and didn't feel rushed to leave.

After they opened the meat lover's combo wasn't on the menu, but it is back! I was so excited, it gives you a little taste of everything they do so well. Chicken wings were delicious, ribs fell right off the bone and the potato skins...More

Used to eat here often years ago, then the place seemed to be going down hill. Then they had a fire, fixed the place up and this was our first time we'd been there in years. For a formerly mobbed place, business was pretty slow...More

Tonight, as always, fantastic food and quick service. We didn't have a plan for dinner on this rainy might. Bernie's was delicious!

We have been back here several times lately. Don't know what happened but I suspect kitchen changes. They have upped their game. We've had several meals here recently and all have been outstanding. Highly recommend the Friday night fish fry. Best I've had anywhere close....More

Went for a light dinner and drinks after hitting the Finger Lakes Wine Trail. Antipasto salad and hot chicken wings were spot on. But steaks and pizza looked good too. Locals told us best broiled Friday fish can be found here too. Only gave it...More

After they had a fire and reopened the food is worse. The chicken wings are horrible. No drink refills, they don't take cards either. No real reason to ever go back....
