I can't tell you how many times I have eaten at this restaurant. Besides the food being good, how many times in your life will you be able to sit in a train car and dine? So much fun and many generations in my family have eaten here.

As a kid and even in my 20's everyone raved about bernies. It was always so good! Upon my last 2 visits I was disappointed with both. The quantity just does not match the price, canned green beans and prime rib that they are famous for just falling so short of expectations. Service is also lacking. We won't go back... More

Went with a large group and it didn't disappoint. The elegance of an old fashion dining car with several rooms attached. The service was exceptional and boy does the staff get a workout. People are lined up in the parking lot waiting to get in and once you taste the food you'll know why. We tried a variety of dishes... More

We called ahead (same day) & made a reservation for 6 people on a Saturday night in the authentic railroad car. It was our first time at Bernie's, so we were looking forward to the full experience. An hour later, we called back to ask if we could change the reservation to 8 in the railroad car. It was confirmed.... More

Hotel suggested this place. We gave them high marks for sending us to Bernie's. It was a Friday so we went early. We did not know they take reservations and would highly suggest you make them. We were lucky and got in. They offer a wide variety of food, including comfort food. I had Yankee pot roast - huge serving.... More

Outstanding, as usual. Other restaurant owners need to dine here to see what the world's best prime rib is all about. Tender, tasty & huge!

Finally got the chance to eat here while in the area for a wedding. Known for havivg an actual railroad dining car and their slabs of prime rib, that's exactly where I sat and what I ordered. They give you a choice of 3 sizes beginning at 16oz then up from there. I chose the mid size. Nearly 3" thick... More

Good comfort food plus the best prime rib around.My experience included great service along with reasonable prices. I enjoyed the prime rib, good size portion for what you pay.
