    We enjoyed our meals. The prices are fair for the amount of food, and service was nice. We did not feel rushed at all. We will be returning again!

    This was our first experience at Bernie's Food House. We were really pleased. The variety of local beer was exceptional. The service was top notch! We found the food was beyond compare. While we didn't try them, Bernie's also have a few in-house developed cocktails that sounded and looked awesome. Kudo's to the bartender and manager. Everything we ordered was prepared to perfection and the quantity was fantastic. You will not leave Bernie's hungry. We found the service was exceptional especially considering it is difficult to find staff in the restaurant industry. We had a nice conversation with the manager who was knowledgeable, pleasant and welcoming. My wife and I look forward to our next visit to Bernie's Food House. We highly recommend Bernie's, do yourself a favour and visit Bernie's Food House.

    While we enjoyed the atmosphere and our time together as a group it took over an hour for our food order to be taken. He took our drink order and then we waited an hour to order our food. Everyone enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. We were not offered dessert which was unfortunate. A suggestion to let guests know exactly what Is in a special that isn't on the menu. Not everyone enjoys refried beans and that's an ingredient people need to be aware of as not everyone enjoys it. Appetizers were delish but cheese was all in one spot on the nachos which was unfortunate. Advice for next time is to ensure orders are taken quicker and more detail on the house specials. Tip was reflected in the service. 15 of my usual 20% or higher.

    Awesome food! The waiter was the only one working there for the evening so that was the only complaint I have. He did an amazing job but just needed more help. Our drink order was very delayed but we understood as he was quite busy.

    Wait was a little long as we were the only ones in the restaurant and it was only basic breakfast items. Food came out chilly and not as requested. Server spilled 90% of drinks over two of our guests. Most likely will not return.

    There was a delay in our food as they were cooking fresh chicken and it was busy. We didn't mind, we had a drink and chatted. The chicken and ribs were well worth the wait. They gave us a complimentary dessert of deep fried Oreos, which were spectacular.

    Really enjoyed our visit. The food was delicious and the service was good. It was fairly clear they could have used more staff though as time in between check ins was lengthy. But we would definitely return as staff always very friendly and courteous, plus the meals were one of the better dining experiences we have had!

    Food was good. Had chips and dip to start - dips were delicious but would’ve been better if the chips were warm even if they’re made ahead of time :) Had fish and chips - didn’t like the gravy and the dressing was but salty. BUT the fish and fries were delicious. My son had the southern fried chicken/mash and mushroom gravy and he said it was very good! Overall was a good meal :)

    Our party of four had a great night at Bernie’s Food House! Our server Emma was excellent. The cocktails were good. The beer & wine were excellent. We each had an appetizer and a main course. The green salad was delicious! Our mains were tasty but the temperature was not great. The Cajun salmon and gnocchi was good but a little too salty. Ribs were delicious and the fries are awesome! Overall, it was a good experience and we will be back!

    The restaurant was beautiful! Our server was attentive and fairly knowledgeable about the menu. Prices were very reasonable. My only complaint is that we all found our food to be very salty. I had the salmon gnocchi and it tasted like the cap fell off the salt shaker during the seasoning process! My friend who had the California Striploin said it was delicious! We all enjoyed our desserts! Would try again but ask to go light on the seasoning salt!
