I wish I didn't have to write this but I feel it needs to be said. We had a 7:30 reservation on a Monday. We arrived on time. We requested outdoor as it was a beautiful night. we were seated and our server came over in a reasonable time and took our drink order. She came back without the drink but one glass of water ok no biggie. She then came back with the drink and another water. This was the highlight of our meal. We placed our dinner order 2 menu entrees no substitutions as is and we waited and we waited. We finally saw our server to ask what was going on and she let us know that they were down one cook and we were 3rd in line. We asked for some bread or something but they did not have anything. It is now about 50 minutes in and we have had it(should have 20 min earlier), I went inside to speak with someone only there was nobody there for more than 5 minutes. I went back outside to let my wife know and said we should just leave. She felt guilty in case the food was coming and wanted to let somebody we had had enough so she tried going inside. This time she got the manager who did apologize but said it was because we ordered dinners. If we did a burger or sandwich no problem. It would have been nice to know that when we ordered an hour ago. She offered to bring us a plate of fries to hold us but It was suppose to come with our meal anyway so we declined, I paid my drink bill and we left. I know these are difficult times but there still needs to be a level of responsibility for management if you are going to conduct business. BE HONEST WITH YOUR CONSUMER. You would be surprised how accommodating we can be when we have an understanding of what is going on

we were attending the Hatboro car show and had made a reservation for dinner. The reservation was honored on-time. The waiter was friendly & Professional he continually checked in on us. all four enjoyed our meal even though it was a reduced menu due to the car show. We were hoping for the reduced menu that was on their website but understand they reduced the number of items even further due to the car show

We waited long for food and it wasn't that crowded. They forgot about my husband's entree and we were finished eating when they finally brought it out. However, the server Brianna was great and always was attentive to our needs.

A little disappointed by staff…I walked in at 2:15 and was turned away as it was reservations only. I walked out front looked up available reservations and sure enough available table at 2:30. So I reserved the table. Walked back in and the front host barley spoke to me, ran off to get someone maybe a Manager. The person/manager was annoyed I guess because I got reservations and mumbled “no times should be Available until 4!” Ok well as far as I’m concerned that is not my problem and I have reservations like I was told… Then it seemed as though now the host and manager are annoyed by my business then I get a unpleasant waitress yet annoyed I guess she got a table. Extremely disappointed.

Overall good, seating is not comfortable only have high chairs with little back support, food was great, waiter was a good, pricing is also decent. Host didn’t check us in by name so we received an email from open table stating we were no shows, thats a bit annoying, but overall good restaurant!

Brandon is one of the best servers at Bernie’s! He’s friendly, knowledgeable and very attentive. We always ask for him or Tony when we go there. The food is delicious and the drinks are inventive and yummy! They often have live music or a DJ. So much fun there!

food was unseasoned and bland. Husband ordered Thai chicken breast which stated was a bone-in chicken breast, was served a very small boneless chicken breast. and our server was very disinterested in us. Have been there many times before and not sure will be back.

Service was extremely slow to finally order. Meals came at different times. My wife was done her meal before my eggs with burnt potatoes came. When we inquired about where my meal was the waitress said she would go check but the cook usually yells at her for asking.

We made a reservation for 3 for outdoors very easily. When we arrived, we waited a few minutes for our table to be prepared. After we were seated, the hostess came back and said that our server would be a few minutes, she was bringing another table their drinks. I appreciated that. Our server, Bree, was very friendly. Service was a bit slow, but I think they were short-staffed, so not Bree's fault. Our order was correct, it was hot, and it was delicious. We will definitely go back.

Felt that the food was overpriced for the portion size. $22 for a salad that was not loaded with meat or very big. Will not be going back.

My son, his fiancée and I went to Bernie’s in Hatboro for dinner and to check out the space for their wedding rehearsal dinner. Food and service was excellent, and the space was amazing! The beer pub pretzels, served with chorizo cheddar fondue, was a deliciously different appetizer. I ordered the crispy chicken salad, my son had the bernie's hand-cut cheesesteak and his fiancée had the veggie wings with a side of mushroom risotto. We enjoyed our meal and, needless to say, we will be booking the wedding rehearsal dinner at Bernie’s!

I made a reservation in advance but still had to wait 10 minutes in the waiting area. It took the food (a salad, pretzels, and mussels) 1 hour and 15 minutes to arrive to our table. After being told we we were going to get 25% off our bill, we were still told we had to pay the full amount. I understand they were understaffed, but maybe something can be done where they limit occupancy. I would not recommend going back until staffing improves. Food was okay, nothing great.

Since Hatboro was having their Cruise Night, the town and restaurant was packed. The hostess really kept her cool handling all the customers. Food was very good and enjoyed by all. The bar definitely needed some help as it would take at least 20 minutes to get drinks and refills.

We ate outside so the noise level was good. The waitress was very attentive. It took a while for the food to come. It was delicious. I had the small plate crab cake. The cilantro jalapeño remoulade sauce is outstanding. My husband loved the salmon.

I treated two disabled neighbors to Sunday brunch. Overall, everything went well. The loud live band, however, made conversation quite difficult. I was told that the manager couldn’t do anything about it. I usually enjoy Bernie’s, but this was really disappointing. (I will answer Yes to the next question, but with an asterisk.)

Bartenders did not want to serve us. Didn't even make eye contact. Had to wave them down. Wasn't that busy. Very disappointed. First time visit, might be last.

Scheduled thru open table. Had to wait 40 minutes to get seated. Tried to eat at the bar, bartender's were not interested in serving us. Waiter was good! Louis was the only good thing about the place

First time at this restaurant and will NOT be back. We ordered breakfast and had to send some of it back. The scrapple was hard as a brick and the French toast was dry and just taste like bread. The food took over 40 minutes to come and our waiter was no where to be found. We had to ask other waiters as they walked past for things we needed. The busser had to find our waiter so we could get the check.

Egg omlet was rubber. Sent it back and replaced by an omelet that was no longer rubber but cheese wasn’t even melted inside and it had no taste. Then a string trio came and literally set up right on top of our table. My friend couldn’t get out of her chair without backing into one of the players. Lots of commotion and ruckus around us with setting up amp and cords. Only positive was service.

Restaurant is clean and welcoming, and the veggie wings with garlic sauce were great, that's where the positives end. Server was friendly and attentive but was conspicuously absent after food came. I ordered the jerk sandwich and it seemed like I caught the kitchen off guard by ordering it as it was hardly a sandwich, maybe 2-3 ounces of pork and I'm not sure what the cucumber "salad" was that was underneath was, but it wasn't close to what the menu described. This was our second time there and we had hopes it improved since the last time a few years ago, but it hasn't. Not a good value for the money. The menu looks good and there are some great ideas, but the execution is lacking.
