We and our friends had fabulous deserts upstairs at Bern's. The service was friendly and the deserts were to die for.

We finished a fantastic meal and Bern's by going to the Dessert Room. After a couple glasses of Port & the Liquid Center Cake Trio, we had to leave with most of our second dessert. Ashley C's service was fantastic and ended our evening on the right note.

The King Midas macadamia nut ice cream is irresistible! Every time we return to Bern's I think I'm gonna venture on to something else on the menu, but can't bring myself to do so. No one at the table is ever disappointed with what they're tasting. The private booth "rooms" not only offer privacy but such an eclectic, authentic, throw-back... More

It's one thing to have good food, and another to have a great environment and atmosphere. Bern's Steak House is a very nice place for dinner, but the dessert room is an absolute must! Be sure to save room for dessert if you go there for dinner, or just go to have dessert. They have a nice selection to choose... More

Even if you do not eat at Bern's Steak House, you can still have a special dessert in the Harry Waugh Dessert Room. There are more desserts that you can conjure up and each more delicious than the rest. In addition to the desserts, there are many specialty drinks and coffees. Beware...the calories are abundant.

What superlatives can be used here? Delicious, for sure. Unique, you bet. Perfect, always. And just plain fun. The desserts are just always mouthwatering and please don't miss their cafe au lait. Best in town. The switchable music speaker is fun, but we usually listen to the live piano. Service is awesome, but that's expected at Harry's. But the best... More

Harry Waugh Dessert Room is where some of the finest desserts on the planet (well certainly in the city of Tampa, FL) can be found and enjoyed. Located on the top floor of Bern's Steakhouse (to which you may either take the elegant staircase or the restaurant's elevator), Harry Waugh's is quite simply a place unlike any I have ever... More

Just overall, the best place to have dessert anywhere, period. The ambiance of the dessert room cannot be beat. From the piano, to the cozy, private booths, to the antique phones, and friendly service. Go for the bananas foster. Well worth the wait. And there is a liquor coffee that is named after Ybor City that is just out of... More
