Big disappointment! I ordered the Fisherman's Feast the description was misleading and overstated. The Sea Scallops(6) were tasty, but the Stuffed shrimp were overcooked so much that they wouldn't leave the shell. The fish filet reminded me of Tilapia and was very thin. The others...More

We had seen Bernie's featured on the Food Network and we're intrigued. We were passing through the area so we decided to give it a try. We arrived shortly after 5pm on a Sunday and found a line out the door. We gave our name...More

If you like to have huge portions for your meal, this is by far the place to go. My personal favorite is the roast beef which is quite tender. The sizes are tremendous-I always bring home leftovers that I can get at least 2 other...More

Visited Saturday late afternoon- between lunch & dinner. The wait was ridiculous. Folks were standing all over the place, stairs, doorway (with the cold wind blowing), and outside. Some folks just walked right in and without reservations said they were next.. Ahhh not the case!...More

Restaurant is very dated. It does feel like you are eating in a train car, but a very old one. Tears in the seats and rather uncomfortable. Portions are huge but quality of food is only average. I'll think twice about visiting again.

Went 1:30 hour to closing time on a weekday night. Waitress was very nice and the place looked interesting and prices weren't bad. My friend loved the seafood plate. Unfortunately the restaurant was very dirty from carpet to walls and the chairs were so hard...More

You should ask the waitstaff. Always tell your server if you have a food allergy or concern. Most times they can accommodate special requests
