Maybe because it was a Thursday? Very slow service and totally mediocre food especially for the price.

First time to BHR and it was for our 2 year wedding anniversary. Making a reservation online was easy. From the drinks to the food to the service, it was a memorable experience!

Waiter (Richard) and all staff were friendly and professional. My wife ordered the seafood pasta with pesto sauce and I had a surf and turf - both outstanding. Only points deducted is for peach pie dessert which came with coffee or chocolate ice cream not vanilla

Bernie's continues to be a treasured destination in the Catskills. The menu, supplemented by the daily specials, is comprehensive and varied. Service is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. Ambience is reflected in well-appointed socially-distanced tables. But, the whole of Bernie's is more than the sum of its parts. Whether you visit as a frequent diner or to celebrate a special occasion. It is hard to imagine a more reliable and joyful choice. Even in the post-pandemic world, ingredients are all fresh and plentiful and all dishes are prepared to your exact specifications. Bernie's will never be mistaken for a cheap fast-food restaurant, but it always returns value for every dollar spent.

Absolutely SUPURB!! My chimichiurri hanger steak was so tender and flavorful as was my husbands pork schnitzel with red cabbage slaw. Such a variety of delicious menu choices, fresh seafood, live lobsters, and ethnic specials. Delicious drinks, vast wine list with crafted speciality cocktails and dangerous desserts!! Oh and the service was excellent. Such hospitality and kindness. Incredible meal!!

I have been to Bernie's several times and it does not disappoint. The food was delicious, our server (Richard) was excellent. We both had the chicken which was delicious.

We ordered from the $25 wines; BHR did not have any savignon blancs in stock, but graciously gave us a Cakebread Cellar one for the same price; probably just about break even for BHR.

The only glitch was that I did not realize that $27 of the bill ($163) was added as a tip. I am a generous tipper, but wound up tipping an additional $40 in cash (as I usually do)as I did not notice this until I had settle the bill.

In any event, it was great and I will certainly be back.

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.

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.

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

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!!!

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.
