Bacon cheeseburger salad was the BEST salad I've ever experienced. My first visit to Bernies (after 20 years visiting the banks) but for sure not my last!!! Can't wait to get back this month (hope they're open). Nice restaurant, great wait staff, reasonably priced. Beparis2@hotmail

Enjoyed a relaxing lunch at Bernie's with lots of interesting menu choices. The loaded chips and cheeseburger salad were excellent. The bartender was genial and there was comfortable bar conversation on a slow Friday afternoon!

The drinks and cheeseburger salad were very good! This is clearly a Steelers fan place but was very welcoming to all football fans. We will visit again!
