We ate outside so can’t speak to noise level. Service was good but the food was not great. It’s not expensive, so I didn’t expect gourmet, but I felt like they didn’t bother to finish cooking the food. French onion soup is supposed to be put under the broiler so the cheese bubbles and forms a crust. This had a tasteless glob of tasteless cheese. The crab cake didn’t have a single detectable piece of crab. It was mushy and mostly mayonnaise with thin threads of crab. The French fries were good and the bun was good.

Even though we made a reservation, the establishment was closed, forcing us to scramble and go to another restaurant.

The DJ was too loud for it to be Sunday Brunch. We sat in the bar area at a separate table. one of the bar tenders was our waitress. She was really good when we arrived but then was not great at the end. I think she was paying more attention to people sitting at the bar. Food and drinks were great.

I went to Bernie’s looking for my new favorite waiter Tony! Once again he was amazing! Super attentive and polite. The drinks were so bomb and the food was delicious! I’ll be requesting to sit in his section each and every time I go because I’ll for sure be back. Great job and kudos to the entire staff.

We sat outside and there was a “singer” Loud and off key. He made speaking to others at our table difficult. Food was fine but he spoiled the night for us

My family and I just had the most amazing time at Bernie’s hatboro today. Our waiter Tony was so bomb!! He didn’t miss a beat. His smile and personality was so on point. My sisters came in from out of town and they loved the location I picked. Brandon wasn’t our waitress but he said I got you ladies. He was just as bomb as Tony. I am for sure coming back and I’m certain my sisters will come back too. Our food was so good. My brunch burger was perfectly cooked. The vibe here on a Sunday was just right! Keep up the great work!

They are so low staffed right now. Our server was sweet. They were backed up at the bar & it took over an hour to get our drinks. Not kidding!!! Our food came out inconsistently. My friend never received her crab cakes. The food was tasty but not exciting. Again, I felt sorry for our server- I would not go back!! Drinks for dessert was not what we had in mind.

Slow service. Another waiter had to bring our food which was sitting under heat lamp for a while as plates were burning hot. Food was ok but not the specifics that we asked for. Did not offer to replace or refund.

We had a reservation for 7:00 pm. After being seated we ordered drinks and apps. After 90 minutes we still did not receive the apps and half the drinks we attempted to order were not available. We ended up leaving and going across the street to have dinner. We will not be back.

We came for the first time to try out the Brunch. I was really excited because it was recommended by many on my search to find a place for a baby shower. When we first arrived there was no parking for a big restaurant there should be more then a hand full of parking spots. Once seated our waiter took our drink orders. 3 coffees that he could not bring out at the same time. No spoon provide and the coffee was horrible very weak. When he finally came back we placed our order. Now I was very disappointment at the menu because I was expecting a brunch and it was not. after a while two of our plates came out one at a time and then 10 minutes later the last plate finally came out. All the food was cold and the waiter never brought out food other people did which made it seem like it was just sitting there getting cold and that's why they brought it out. Once we where finished another person cleared the table then the waiter finally came and now asked if we wanted more coffee. Not while we eating no water no offer of water. I was not happy and would not come back and I am glad I came to see first hand the place before I decided to book for a Baby Shower.

I went for a themed brunch, and I was hoping for a table near the live music but they sat us in a table in the last room in the restaurant. Our server was super nice but didn't visit us frequently. The food was amazing!

Unfortunately the service this visit was very poor. We went for brunch and purchased bottomless mimosas hoping to get your money’s worth, we were hoping the service would help with refilling glasses timely. This wasn’t the case. We were told another round was on its way but it never came until three more asks. We watched as other servers in the room came back with food drink and our server was no where to be seen. Food was good but one dish was wrong and had to wait 30 mins to find and flag our server to send the dish back to the kitchen. Everyone was done eating by the time I was able to get the corrected dish. We then waited another 30 mins just for the check. We were there for over 2 hour due to all the waiting and only received 5 small glass of “bottomless” mimosas. Very Disappointed in this most recent visit

Even though the restaurant wasn't very busy for a Friday our service was extremely slow. Also our food was lukewarm and we would have told our server but she was nowhere to be found.

Food was mediocre and expensive. Overall disappointing.

Our server was terrible! They took our food order and we never saw them again. The man that brought our food refilled our coffee and brought us ketchup. My fries were cold when the food came out. So disappointed.

Food was good the first few times we went there. For the last two visit the food was not up to par. Our wings came out undercooked. Chicken fingers had no salt/ flavor. The egg on my burger was fried crispy.

Latin night. It was nice music. But they didn’t have all their parts to the entrees. Fajitas no rice. Margaritas no kiwi. And it wasn’t crowded at all.

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.
