I went to Bernies for Brunch on sunday and had an amazing time. The live music and the quality of food and drink made the experience fun and upbeat.

I’ve been to Bernie’s 3 times in the last few months, and this time was by far the most disappointing. This was my first time coming for brunch. Some of our cups were dirty, so our waiter had to get us new ones. The most disappointing aspect was the food. I ordered the red velvet pancakes, which were a specialty meal that was only being offered in the month of March. What was brought out to me did not look anything like the picture that was posted on Bernie’s Facebook page 2 days before. The presentation was a 0, as I had 4 very thin slices of strawberries on my pancakes. In the picture, there were at least 2 whole strawberries placed near the pancakes. No whipped cream or powdered sugar to be found. The portion size was smaller than what I expected, and I was given a very small amount of syrup. Safe to say that I won’t be making this my brunch spot.

Food is always good but service is always very slow. We were seated for over 10 minutes before server came to take our drink order. Was not crowded when we arrived and table that sat 5 min after us had their drinks and order placed before our server came to our table.

My husband and I dined in Sunday (March 21) but I have to write this review on Thursday (March 25) Let me just say it was CROWDED. I read other review about that night and many were complaining about the host? Not sure why. I thought she did great. She did have to put us on a wait but there were no tables open so there wasn’t much she could do. I thought she was very friendly and on top of the job because she looked like she was the only one working. Server was slow but I was told there was only two servers on so that’s okay. Food did come out cold. I like bernies, just understaffed that day.

Lunch was wonderful! It was the first time out in a LONG while with a friend to eat, chat, and feel normal again! And there's nothing like a Bernie's hamburger!

We had a reservation and when we arrived were told at least a 20 min wait. Then never spoken to again. Ended up eating at a table at the bar. The hostess was overwhelmed.
I really like Brenies, just understaffed.

I always enjoy my food and the service at Bernie’s. This was my bf’s first time and he was impressed. I’m sure he will want to come back often. Especially since it’s so close to home.

We were seated right away, and at the time we got there (6:30 on a Tuesday) there weren’t many people. Service and ambiance were great as usual. We both ordered the shaken beef bowl, which he both had during a previous visit. It was delicious, but the beef was a little undercooked.

Food and service are great, but they should advertise the kind of atmosphere that is created for weekend brunch. There was a DJ playing loud club music our entire time there.

Although the server was nice, I did not get a very warm and welcome feeling from the staff. The food however was horrible!! Between the fish and chips and the 8 spice chicken sandwich, I don't know which one was the worst. The preparation of the food is a joke, this was our 2nd visit as the location is close to us but needless to say we will not return.

Terrible attitude from the hostess. This is not the first time. We ended up leaving. It’s too bad that the first impression is so negative. My family likes to eat there and maybe will try again but not for a while.

Always a good time at Bernie's. The food was good and the bottomless mimosas was a plus! I had to wait about 20 minutes beyond my reservation time because people just did not want to leave. Folks go checkout Bernie's for brunch on the weekend you won't be disappointed!

Our first and last time there.... no social distancing AT ALL..... waitress very nice.... food took forever to get .....they had a Bongo player/Dj music and it was blasting, couldn’t even hear each other talk..... it was not what we were expecting from the other reviews we read. Sorry, hate giving bad reviews but this was definitely deserved.

The waitress was nice, drinks were ok. The food not so much nothing had any taste. My husband and I got the mussels , crab cake sandwich and the shrimp pasta . None of which were tasty. I’ve heard good reviews about their chicken wings I don’t eat them
So maybe just try the wings here

My girlfriends and I had an amazing time! The food was great. The Resturant had just the right amount of buzz to make it a fun atmosphere. Our waitress was sooooo bomb! She had our drinks on point, food delivered as soon as she could and she was pretty funny. We will be back for sure!

Lovely server, really kind and attentive. The food was amazing, delicious and burger meat on point. We were 8 people, almost all ordered burger, and then other entrees everything looked delicious. The drinks were perfect too! A little loudy place but really cool live music.

Overall good experience.

Usually my food is pretty good when I visit Bernie's but it was not on Valentine's Day. I had a Chicken Parm dish and it was subpar. My drink was pretty good, and service was great(Chris was really on point) but I wasn't impressed by the Chicken Parm.
