Bernie's offers a comfortable feel, decent menu, and pretty solid food at prices that aren't outrageous. Really can't go wrong by adding this one to your OBX rotation. Fun, casual setting and quality brew selection too.

Stopped here for dinner. Wait was 45 minutes but no wait if you ate at bar. Our family was starving so we did just that. Great staff and supper. Curry Shrimp and Clam Chowder Soup was our favorite.
