Ordered the hot wings and they were so undercooked that the bone in the center was still cold. They replaced them with no issue, but replaced them with overcooked wings that only left that burnt taste in my mouth. I also didn’t eat them after trying one. They removed it from the bill without question, thankfully.

Other than that the place as always is clean and beautiful decor. Plentiful outside seating.

Initially, we were seated outside at a table in the sun. We asked the hostess if we could change to a shadier table, or eat inside, and she said no. There were a lot of shaded areas with empty tables. The manager had to intercede and ask hostess to move us to a different table. Everyone received a bottle of water, except our table. Otherwise, the food was delicious and we were still able to have a good time.

Service was really slow. Our drinks were sitting on the bar for 10 minutes before it was bought over to us. Our server only asked how oir food arrived when it just got placed and didn't see her again until the end. But we were looking for her for quite some time to get our check. It took forever

Service was horrible. Was seated within 15 mins of arrival two tables seated after ours were served before us. Had to ask three different ppl where our waitress was. Once the waitress arrived she was not very friendly. Once she did take out food order and drink or we still had to wait quite a long time while the two tables next to us were constantly being checked on and greets throughout the visit. Had to ask several times where our drinks were. And when she finally brought the check we still had to wait 20 mins for her to even come and get that from us. Second time in three months where I have dined here and felt mistreated!

Hostess appeared to be very flustered with managing the front, greeting new customers, getting tables ready, communicating with food delivery personnel, answering the phones and seating guests. I had a reservation, showed up on time and 20 minutes before being seated as a table needed to be cleared.
Otherwise, the food was tasty and drinks were delicious

Overall Bernies is pretty good. It’s not the best food I ever have had but it’s a great place to meet and hang out and you know you’re gonna get good food. The waiter seemed off of like disinterested but yeah it was good. I got the BELT and it was good

Food is awful
Even French fries and chicken were terrible
Panko chicken cooked to leather like and fries tasted like old oil.
How can you get a wedge salad wrong! bacon tasted like bacon bits because they were so overdone.
I’ve always heard food was not great but we needed a local restaurant and wanted to take a chance

We were a walk in so we put a name down and were told by the hostess (with attitude) that it was an 1 hr wait. After 20 mins of waiting we followed up and were told walk in reservations were no longer honored, we had to make a new online reservation. When we checked on opentable they were fully open on reservation times. Why would they tell us it was an hour wait and online there was no wait ?? Plus we saw a bunch of tables open. Food was meh and my nephews chicken tenders were so bone dry he couldn’t eat them.

AJ our waiter was so attentive. Plenty of time given for us to catch up - haven’t seen each other in a year and lots to catch up on. A perfect brunch spot!

Our server, who has only been there for a few nights, was SPECTACULAR! She was kind, attentive and excellent. Most of the food was very good. One of our 6 entrees, a chicken dish, was so tough and undercooked it had to be sent back.

They seemed disorganized and frantic despite there being tables open and reservations made. We waited 25 minutes for tables that were open when we arrived. Our server was good, but the overall experience was less than we expected and what we had at the Hatboro location. The food was good, but I’m not certain we would go back to the Glenside location any time soon. For that kind of food there are many options in the area.

Our food was great. My friend ordered the crab cake sandwich, and I ordered the roast chicken breast with basil rice. Really, surprisingly outstanding. And a great value.

Always enjoy our time when we go to Bernie's. Service was a little slow but it was definitely busy so we completely understood and weren't in a rush. The food and drinks are always good when we dine there. Recommend Bernie's to anyone look for a good place to relax and enjoy their time.

The food and service at Bernie’s in Glenside were very good but the indoor temperature was uncomfortably cold, and the restaurant’s acoustics made it difficult to hear normal level conversations. I only mention these things in hopes that the restaurant might try to improve upon them, for a more enjoyable experience for their customers. 🙂

Service was awful! Waitress kept telling us "no problem" and would then forget to bring our drinks. She didn't tell us if there were any specials (It was Father's day and there was a Father's Day menu). The food was cold, the salmon was overcooked, the burger was charred burnt on the outside and well done on the inside (we asked for it medium). This is not the Bernie's we remember pre-pandemic. Disappointing!

Solid food - haven't been in a couple of years so was a little taken aback by how the service has declined. That being said, i know it was a holiday so maybe they were understaffed and I know it's been a rough year ... I have just never had an entirely teenage staff with such apathy. At one point our hostess tossed the menus on the table and walked away as they fell to the floor. It was pretty crowded, so I doubt this review will impact business, but hopefully their service improves.

Good reliable choice for a night out. The live music inside was a pleasant surprise. Even though it rained we had a good time under an awning outside.

They do not honor reservations.
We had a 6:45 reservation and they did not seat us 7:45! Hostesses do not care along with the waiter and waitresses.
Food was terrible and not worth the hour wait. Will not be returning!
