Waitstaff was very attentive. Food was really good. Tuna dish was fantastic.
Excellent service, Excellent food and menu selection.
Everything was great. However, I did request a birthday candle in my husbands desert when I made the reservation. But that didn’t happen.
Wonderful dinner. Great food and amazing staff. A little pricey to be a regular but wonderful for a special occaision. Will be back. We also happen to like their other restaurants Crust and Craft Brew.
As always the food was great. We've about tried everything on the menu, never disappointed.
This is a standard when we are upstate. Food is delicious, try the crab Rangoon appetizer! Service is always wonderful, thanks to Courtney. The outdoor deck is lovely.
The best part of eating here is that it is so reliable. Never a bad meal or inconsistent service.
food was good nice portions staff friendly great bread
Great food service and people
Prices are a little high. The quality of the food is excellent. The service was good. Could’ve had a Special Dessert on Menu for Mother’s Day. Had a very enjoyable Dinner with my Mother for Mother’s Day.
Excellent Food and Excellent Service
The drinks and the food came out amazingly quick! Portions were great size. Everything was just right!
The service at the restaurant was excellent, however the food preparation was not of the same quality. I had the meatloaf and it appeared to be very salty.. My wife had the octopus and fried calamari appetizers and she did not find them particularly appetizing.
We had a wonderful meal at BHR on Valentine's Day. Although we have been visiting our extended family in Sullivan County for over 30 years, this was our first time to this fabulous restaurant, but it will definitely not be our last. The Dodge Inn steak was tender and very flavorful. All other food was very tasty. The wine list has a wide selection of adequate wines for $10/glass, along with many more expensive choices for those wanting to splurge. The server was very attentive, and the ambiance was nice and warm, even in with the pandemic rules.
Food was service were top notch. Will definitely eat there again
I would recommend this restaurant. We have been there a few times in the past. We got married 2/14/20 and we went there with our family after our ceremony and had great food and drinks .so this year we returned to celebrate our anniversary and valentine's day .again the food was great and so was the drinks and service. So enjoy and support local food services
Excellent food & great service. We will definitely come back.
Service was great drinks 🍹 perfect and food was delicious and scenery was calming warmth
Excellent Service,Excellent Food
It's been many years since I dined at Bernie's Holiday Restaurant ( in past Bernie's Chateau). I decided to take my wife there for her birthday and I must say am sooo glad I did. First, the location is easy, exit 109 off the Quickway. When we entered, we were were pleasantly greeted and seated. It was very quiet the night we went thus minimal noise. Both our meals were wonderful, excellently prepared and
delicious. When it came to dessert, the wait staff brought dessert with a candle and sang happy birthday to my wife. Such a smile came over both of our faces, wonderful ending to a great dining experience. For the food and drinks we had, the price was reasonable for a top notch restaurant in the Hudson Valley. As I said, it has many years since I dined at Bernie's Holiday Restaurant and you can be rest assured my wife and I will be back!!!
Wonderful food and service! Looking forward to coming here again
Wonderful place, lovely atmosphere. Unfortunately due to covid19 not very busy
Had another wonderful meal and great cocktails compliments of Larry. Courtney was the best. Can't wait to return.
Great place in the Catskills! Great quality food and presentation. Will definitely be back!
Great food, cocktails and wine.
Not cheap but excellent value. A real find.
We had a lovely dinner outside. The food was delicious and there was plenty of space to isolate from other diners outside. They’ve done a great job keeping everyone safe, and the food was prepared excellently.
I like to support local businesses in our area. They are doing everything they can to provide a safe and delicious meal.
I've been a number of times now and have never had a bad experience or meal. On the contrary, we have been very pleased with each visit. This last time one in our party requested a Vegan entree and they got a lovely ravioli dish. A welcome change from the options offered at other restaurants, usually Pasta Primavera or Salad.
Food was delicious & service was great! Will definitely be back!
Food was very good. My wife and I both ordered steak. Server did not know much about the steaks, but that was fine. Note there is a sign that advises of an 8% sales tax and 20% gratuity to be included in all checks.
Delicious food & great service. Overall great experience.
When you sell $55 cuts of meat, you need to cook it to the correct temperature. Both steaks ordered medium rare, one came out medium well and the other well done. Side were cold. No excuse of the temperature to be that far off.
We were a party of 6 and sat outside. We started with a few cocktails at the bar before moving outside for dinner. We had several apps - lamb chops, grilled octopus, pork belly and scallops. All delicious. We split entrees which included porterhouse steak, ribeye steak, ahi tuna. The food was outstanding as was the service.
My wife had the whole Maine lobster. She really enjoyed her meal. I got the Pecan Encrusted Rack of Lamb which was on their special menu. I was not impressed. Didn't have a good lamb flavor. In door seating with Covid rules takes away from the dining experience, not their fault. If we were in the area again, I would give them another try.
Everything was amazing!
My wife and I enjoyed an outdoor dinner at BHR. The food was good and the service provided by Mr. Shane was outstanding. It was a pleasant reprieve from Covid 19.
Food is always great and the staff is as well!!
Great seafood , everything is very tasty. Didn’t expect a restaurant that uses such high quality ingredients and packs so much flavor thus far from nyc
Go the BHR food and service always consistently great
Would definitely recommend for a couples night out for dinner!! Fantastic food and the service is top notch!!!
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.
