Getting back to a restaurant was a long awaited experience. We used the birthday of one of the grandkids as a good excuse to make our first pandemic era restaurant outing. Truly good restaurants are hard to find in Sullivan County, but Bernie's Holiday Restaurant is certainly one of them.

We made a reservation for outdoor dining and got great weather. There were plenty of patrons inside, but the restaurant was nicely set up for outdoor service. They had a patio on one side of the indoor seating and a larger outdoor section on the other side. We sat in what appeared to be a permanent outside area and there was additional seating under a tent in back of the section where we were seated. The atmosphere was very pleasant with the good weather.

The food was likewise very good. I got a steak, nicely done and tasty. It wasn't the best steak I ever ate, but wasn't priced like a New York City steakhouse either. I don't think anyone would have been disappointed. My wife enjoyed a stuffed lobster. She commented that the lobster itself was good, but that the stuffing was amazing. My granddaughter got surf and turf and was very happy with her dinner.

The service was very good as well. It was attentive without being to much. The owner of the restaurant checked on all the tables. That's always a nice touch. To sum up this is a very good restaurant. It isn't the best you will ever visit, but well worth the trip if you happen to be traveling along NY 17. It's right off the highway. One more comment is that the restaurant automatically adds a 20% gratuity on all bills. That is made clear with a sign when entering. That's not a problem for me because the servers earn their tips.

We love Bernie's. The food is usually on par with NYC restaurants and the atmosphere is surprising given the 'out of the way' location. Highly recommend for dinner!

Went to BHR for my daughter's 29th Birthday - this was our first visit to BHR. We are from Long Island and have been regular diners at Post House in Manhatten, Mac's Steakhouse and Prime in Huntington, and Teller's in Islip. BHR's quality, presentation, value exceeded these other steakhouses by a long shot! Our waitress, Julianne, was exceptional and had the gift of perfect timing.
We started with a dozen oysters and an order of grilled octopus. The oysters were perfectly shucked, with no trace of shell fragments. The octopus was served, grilled, with chorizo sausage, atop a delightfully light hummus. For dinner my husband and I each order the cowboy steak dinner and my daughter ordered the BHR Seafood Duo. Our steaks and seafood were flavorful, cooked as ordered and were complemented by delicious sides of garlic mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, and homemade fettecini.
The welcomed value that BHR offeres, when compared to other steakhouses where we have dined, is that BHR's dinners are served with some standard sides. For example the cowboy steak is served with onion rings, sauted onions, and a choice of potato (garlic mash, baked, potato skins, or steak fries) and a dinner salad.
This review wouldn't be complete if I didn't also mention the amazing garlic bread and cinnamon swirl bread served gratis. Honestly - these were so delish - I would have been satisfied to just nosh on these, with a salad and a glass of cabernet!!
We will be back soon and I am looking forward to trying some of BHR's other seafood selections such as their Pecan Crusted Trout and other locally raised/caught offerings.

We were looking for a place to have a nice dinner on the way to Bethel Woods. Bernie's Holiday Restaurant was a great choice. Food was delicious and cooked just right. They accommodated special requests and the service was very good. We will return when in the area and would recommend BHR to anyone looking for a good restaurant.

We were seated right away, staff and service was warm and welcoming. Food was delicious. Lollipop lamb chops appetizer cooked and taste to perfection. We split a steamed 3 lb. lobster that was sweet and tender with the seafood stuffing on the side that was full of chunks of seafood. All yummy!

Very nicely plated, interesting looking dinner but bland tasting. My wife and I both ordered seafood. Both dishes where slightly overdone and dry. House and premium glassed wine selections where OK, not superb. Desert menu very good. Waitress was very attentive.
