“Quality food, decent service, predictable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Bernie's has been around for years and if you like eating in a 1950's style railroad car, this is the place for you. They have a full restaurant for larger parties, too.

Their fare covers the usual expectations, service is generally pretty good and you get enough so you aren't hungry by the time you get up to leave.

It's one of those places the local folk go from "time to time" and it seems to keep them in business. Check it out!

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

Bernie's is a Great place. It's one part old time diner meets old time rail car that is just outside Westover Air Force Base. One of a kind. The portions are large and the price isn't.
Let's talk prime rib. The "small" cut is about 3" thick. 24 oz. The cuts only get more shocking as you go up, but it isn't just show. These are flavorful cuts of meat. You can't go wrong.
The service is a little laid back, but still good. The atmosphere is a bit loud, but fun.
Check it out.

“Ex beef”

Great prime rib and steaks. A little on the expensive side, but has largest salad bar ever seen - and also best.

“Birthday Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

My wife treated me to Bernie's Dining Depot for my Birthday. She made reservations for a Friday night and were seated right away. I already knew what I was going to order since I've heard talk of their Prime Rib. We had some wine while perusing the menu and ordered the Gorgonzola Bread as an appetizer. The Bread order was huge and tasty. The waitress commented that there is no order that is small at Bernie's. My wife ordered the Baked Seafood Platter while I ordered the Regular cut of Prime Rib. They also have a smaller version called the Caboose cut or a larger version called the Conductors Cut that looks the size of a Birthday Cake!!!!! My wife really enjoyed the platter with Haddock, Shrimp, Scallops and Stuffing. My Prime Rib was "Fantastic" and the Au gratin Potatoes were right up there too. I was ashamed that I could not make a dent in the dinner but was really happy to take it home for later. Make reservations if you are planning for a late dinner because they were packed with people waiting outside when we left at 7 PM.... Enjoy.....

“Good Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

Came here on a rainy day...and it was packed. We had the Fisherman's Platter, Parmesan Crusted Chicken, Parmesan Haddock, and Chicken Parm with spaghetti. All meals were good and hot. Leftovers were taken home as there was plenty enough. Service was a little slow but we overlooked that. Glad we came.
