We had a party of four and asked to sit at one of the larger round tables. We were told they were reserved for parties of 5 or more. There were several of these round tables that were not in use. I understand the policy, but it would have been nice if the host could have checked if any of the round tables were already reserved.
Otherwise the food and service were excellent. We usually go to the Glenside location but we enjoyed the larger space in Hatboro.
We were sad that the parfait was not available!

We visit Bernie’s in Hatboro regularly and are usually satisfied with our visit This visit (6:00 on a Friday night) was horrible. We were seated promptly and always make a reservation We were in the back room (aka their party room) While busy and with 3 servers buzzing around the room, no one approached or greeted us....for a while. Other tables were seated after us and had water, drink orders taken.....it was like we were invisible. After some time, I stepped out to ask for a manager. I was exasperated.....don’t take reservations if you can’t handle them. The mgr got a waiter for us. We tried to relax and enjoy our dinner Not sure I’ll visit again on a weekend. Not worth the stress

Food and service were great but the cocktails were weak. My friend and I ordered two different drinks and we tried each other’s. My cosmopolitan was not strong and her blackberry spicy margarita was way to spicy no blackberry.
Food was great, we had seafood,steak and salad. French fries with my crispy beef were the big hit.

Had dinner prior to listening to a local band. Server was nice but struggled to give info on favorites or recommendations for drinks. Service was slow and bussing tables was lacking. But the vibe was good and the food was better than expected. Would have been great if service was better. But they are trying

Pleasant dining experience in a neighborhood pub. Good friendly service. Good variety of menu choices with many options if you are vegetarian. Although they offer a variety of pizzas, this particular Saturday evening they had no pizza available. Don’t know why but we weren’t getting pizza so it didn’t matter to us. Burgers are very good and so are the sweet potato fries.

Bernies is an open feel restaurant with a large dining area and a spacious bar area. The food looks, smells and tastes delicious. It is a bit pricey, but worth it to me. The pool tables upstairs are also a nice touch.

Reservation got us a high tip table at the bar. Table dirty. No service. Unable to get refills of our drinks. Only 2 waitresses for the entire bar. Ordered a wedge salad, got a warm mixed salad. Food not good. In face, not even sure if it is safe to eat here. Could not complain to waiters as she NEVER came back. Would not recommend and would NEVER go back. Definitely different from Bernies in Glenside. What a waste of time and money!

I mostly come here for the beer and atmosphere. It's a nicely finished space with trendy accents and a nice, big bar. The beer ranges from $2 tall cans of PBR and Narragansett to more expensive pours of various, rotating craft beers. Most beers are sold as "16 oz." pours, but they use small glasses and serve them with large heads, the 16 oz. cans of beer don't fit in the glass... Figure a bit less than a 12 oz. pour in reality. The food is affordable and of decent quality. The real value is in the small plates, I highly recommend the poutine.

Their 4-seater tables are the same size as the 2-seater tables, so you will be uncomfortable and the table will be cluttered. There are other, much larger tables available for big parties, but the 4 or so of them take up the majority of the space. They could use a re-think on the seating in the dining room off of the main bar area. Service is a mixed bag, it has been great, but our most recent visit left us a little wanting... Service was generally slow with a couple mix-ups regarding one of our sides, and an incorrect entree was brought to our table (crab cake salad instead of crab cake sandwich). I also went long periods without a drink, my second beer was brought to the table only minutes before our check. Thankfully they serve water to the group when you sit down. I would have ordered more beer during my meal, but I was only given the chance once, the second time I had to ask her to stop as she walked past our table.

Overall, I would recommend this place to a friend, but for best results, get appetizers & drinks at the bar. Table service is cramped and inconstant.

We've been faithful customers of Bernie's Glenside and were looking forward to a possibility to check-out Bernie's Hatboro since it opened. This weekend the opportunity came up as we were celebrating 4 family birthdays that happens in December. We decided on this restaurant because of location which was convenient to everyone.
We were seated promptly upon arrival. The hostess, while seating us, proudly proclaimed that they are 'good for private parties' and noted that 'there is one going on right now'.
Perhaps that should have been a red flag, although in all fairness I cannot be 100% sure that our experience was directly tied to that.
Our server made apologies beforehand stating that he is 'brand new'. no problem - we've dealt with new servers before and actually worked in restaurants ourselves so we are not the type to give someone headaches just because they are still green. So repeating the orders, even to the point of showing the entries on the menu can be brushed off. The 3 starters, however, took a while to appear and our daughter's drink was quite potent (granted, Cosmos are usually very potent-but this was a bit over the top)
Just when we were almost done with them, the server came up to the table and again with apologies, informed us that 'he lost our order'. We had to give our choices again and obviously the waiting time increased. Given the fact that the whole party now is sitting there with no food and 'nothing to do' - there were no attempts to somehow make it 'right' (I am not so much suggesting any monetary compensation but perhaps a plate of fries or something similar delivered to the table would have sufficed to tie everyone over while waiting). (cont.)

This was my fourth visit to this location but first time to Bernie’s. We arrived as the Friday evening Happy Hour crowd was starting to fill the bar, the dinner crowd came later. The many rooms offer comfortable seating for small, medium or large groups and remain intimate. Our server was very attentive and saw to our dining needs. We chose an appetizer - the Parmesan Punched Potatoes - outstanding! The blend of melted Parmesan and Blue Cheeses were a surprisingly good combination and the topping of crumbled, crisp bacon - well, everything tastes better with bacon. The Karl burger, topped with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato and, again, bacon was reported by my dining companion, to be very flavorful and cooked to perfection. I chose the Pacific Coast Chicken Sandwich sans bun. Very tasty indeed. The accompanying steak fries were very crispy, nicely seasoned and piping hot. Served in a metal container, they remained hot throughout the meal. Sadly, we missed the dessert menu which featured peach raspberry pizza, my two favorite fruits. There will definitely be a next time.
