We decided to try Bernie's because of the recommendation from "The Phantom Gourmet". OMG......I just had to try the prime rib. I ordered the medium sized one. I ate what I could, then took the rest home to provide 5 more meals. I've never seen anything like it! We sat in the dining car which was awesome. It was clean... More

We had heard so much about this restaurant so we decided to give it a try. It was more than worth the hour drive, the food was excellent as was the service. I recommend reservations for dinner on a weekend if you're going in a group, there were long lines and they close at nine on weekends. Food portions were... More

I come here all the time for the prime rib. Has a great diner atmosphere with a train car to sit in which is awesome. The prime is the best around. It is the biggest prime rib you would see ever. Also has very good sides. The best side is the au Groton potatoes. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

After leaving another restaurant frustrated for poor service we came for Lunch at Bernie's. My husband and I were extremely satisfied. We weren't sure if there would be a wait with 25 cars in the lot, however we walked right in and got seated right away. In less than a minute, our waitress asked about drinks and served us immediately,... More

The food here is awesome. Sometimes the servers leave a little to be desired but the food makes up for them.

I live an hour and a half away and drive to Bernie's for their food. An incredible restaurant worth the drive. It gets very busy at dinner time and especially on the weekends. You can make reservations but expect to wait. Go here early before the rush or during the week. They are so popular that they have been known... More
