Bernie's is our new default "go to" spot in Kennesaw. Owned by the restaurant family that owns Trackside, Bernie's offers a bit more "vibe" and skews a bit more singles and couples than families. To be honest, we have been there at least 12 times, with the most recent visit just last night. We've eaten our way through the menu and have tried several of the drinks. But before we get there, we have to say the wait staff is superior. Shout out to Suzy...you know who this is (P&S).

So, our favorites from the menu include anything on the appetizer menu, but the flatbread pizza rates up there. The piroges are excellent and the fried pickles come courtesy of the Trackside menu. On the main menu, the quinoa bowl is excellent, but try it with tuna. I like my quinoa a bit more spicy than chef prepares, so they will kick it up a bit if you want. The hamburger is knock-down awesome and is a tall burger for sure. Salads are crisp and sizeable. The chocolate dessert is suggested.

Slow times are Tuesday, so before everyone finds it, that's a good time to check them out. While the weather is still nice you can sit out on the side patio. When it gets crowded it can get loud, especially if you are upstairs. Perhaps as the popularity continues to catch on the proprietors will consider some sound baffles to lessen the echo. I will assume that when winter sets in the crowd may drift to Trackside to take advantage of the fireplace. Regardless, Bernie's will still be a great place in the winter.

Highly recommended.

Bernie’s did not disappoint!! We sat outside and were promptly greeted by our waitress who gave us the details on Bernie’s. Since we also love Trackside, it was nice to hear it’s owned and operated by the same family.
On to the drinks and eats: the Garden Party Lemonade was a refreshing delight.. Dixie Vodka, mint infused lemonade, Pimms and a cucumber slice (had two!) as for the eats - -we started with Perogies (tender pillows of yumminess) for dinner my husband ordered the Camp McDonald and said it was “the best burger” he’s had in a very long while! It will sound familiar but 2 all beef patties, special sauce, pickles but on a H & F bun!! = YUM
I enjoyed the muffuletta; a large sandwich cooked to perfection .. ham crisped on the edges and the olive tapenade (the best!).
We enjoyed everything about Bernie’s from the atmosphere to the attentiveness of Beverly — pretty obvious the food and drinks. We’ll be back in fact have been and brought some friends to enjoy this gem!

There’s no reason that downtown Kennesaw shouldnt rival Woodstock and Acwoth as a dining destination. With the addition of Bernie’s we are one step closer to making that happen. I’ve dined at Bernie’s three times now and the food has been consistently excellent. They hooked me with the roasted oysters and sealed the deal with the perfectly prepared Ahi sandwich. Service is excellent, food is fantastic and it’s a great buzzy atmosphere. The only thing keeping this from being a 5 Star review is the noise level. On a busy weekend it’s a challenge to carry on a conversation with your fellow diners and the wait staff. That won’t keep us from being regulars as they have everything else going for them.

We have wanted to try the new restaurant since it opened, and invited 2 other couples to join us. The waitress, Kristen, was great! She was fun, energetic & efficient. She knew the menu & gave good suggestions. We shared oysters and a crab & spinach dip with flatbread for appetizers. For entrees we tried the Cuban sandwich, the chicken schnitzel, the poke, and a spinach salad, and a muffuletta. Everyone enjoyed their food. No complaints with service or food! We will definitely be back.
