    This restaurant was not welcoming when we walked in multiple waitresses walked by us and did not greet us. When the hostess did seat us at a dirty table I had to ask her if she could clean it when it was obviously dirty. We waited 13 minutes at the table until a waitress took our drink order. The waitress had food in her hair and her nails were really dirty. She gave us our food without any napkins. When I did ask for napkins she threw them at us. The food was good and affordable. The service was horrible.

    We made a reservation for noon, showed up on time. was sat promptly. Our order was taken on time and our server was very nice and friendly. We put our food and drink order in at the same time. Then we watched 3 tables get sat, get their meals, eat and leave, all while we were served one coffee and none of our other drinks. Asked about our food, still nothing came out. After an hour and one coffee later, we asked the host if we could just leave as we were starving and needed to get something to eat. No one sent a manager over to check on us or explain why the food was taking so long or why our drinks didn’t come out. This is not the first time I’ve had this experience at Bernie’s either. The food, drinks, and ambiance are good but I don’t want to go back.

    For the cost of the meals, the food was pretty damn mediocre. The service was super slow, and the drinks were not great. I honestly would not recommend this place especially for brunch.

    I met a friend for Brunch and we ate outside. It had rained heavily earlier in the day and the chairs and tables were dried off quickly so we could be seated. The menu selection was great and both us us enjoyed the food. Service was very friendly, though a little slow. I highly recommend Bernies in Manayunk.

    Had a reservation for outdoor dining. Arrived on time for our reservation and we’re told they didn’t have any tables outdoor. That was totally fine- we had no problem sitting inside. Sat at our table for about 10 minutes with no one coming up to us. Eventually a server brought us some waters. Sat there for about another 20 minutes before someone came to take our order. Drinks didn’t come out until our food did. When we finally did get our food, it was over cooked. There was no acknowledgement of the bad service at all, our server looked like she couldn’t care less.

    Dropped in for outdoor brunch. The street was dusty and muddy which didn’t make for a great outdoor experience. My order wasn’t correct but was rectified quickly and with a smile. I will say their kitchen manager is working triple time! He serves, corrects, and communicates well!! I’ll go back but I won’t eat outdoors.

    Chicken from chicken and waffles meal was burnt. The reasoning for not being able to get 1 replaced was unreal. Seems like the grease needs to be changed out. Other than that, the food was good. Blueberry pancakes were overwhelmed with blueberry. Home fries were the best I’ve had. Second time coming and the first time all the meals were too notch

    I had chicken and waffles which is usually very good. This time the chicken had no flavor and my Waffle was cold. The waitress did replace my Waffle but she couldn't do anything about that chicken. This is one of my favorite places to have brunch but I was underwhelmed this time what you say now

    The wait staff and ambience is great, but the eggs in the Bernie's benedict were overcooked as was the lox and cream cheese omelet. Noisy at first, but then the loud talkers left.

    Our prior request for quieter table was not acknowledged when we arrived, and had to sit in the bar area with live music. Next we received dirty and frayed menus. Upon ordering, 4 items chosen on menu were not available, including one of the specials. When we received our food, the basic salmon and steak dinners were burnt, and the two others were very poor. After discussing our disappointment with the manager, we were offer gratis slices of cake for our a birthday celebration. While the cake was good, it was served with soup spoons since they ran out forks. All in all, one of the worst dining experiences.

    The back area and the private upstairs are perfect for larger groups and the outdoor space is small but nice for intimate get togethers. One complaint was the size of the drinks, specifically the old fashioned which was too small and made too sweet.

    I will definitely be back. My daughter recommended and said the food is great. We had brunch, can’t wait to try dinner. It was rather busy because it was Mother’s Day, but both of our orders of fried were very cool to cold, I tried one and the seasoning was great but couldn’t eat cold fries. Otherwise, very good and definitely worth going back.

    Saw Bernie’s on TikTok while looking for for brunch places in Philly and decided to give it a try. I went Sunday, May 1st and was definitely impressed, there were plenty of food options and they even had a special May Menu. It was busy so the kitchen was backed up but the service was good and our food ended up not taking too long. The mimosa flight was $40 for a bottle, so our group of 3 got 2/3 mimosas each (~$13/pp), solid deal in my opinion. Overall Bernie’s was really good, I’ll definitely be back.

    The server basically ignored us most of the time. The food was ok… but nothing amazing. The cocktails were bland, but the place itself was pretty. We got mussels, ahi tuna nachos, fish and chips (undercooked batter), and the vegetarian seitan cheese steak. They give you a lot of food… but I wish that they would focus a bit more on how it is made.

    It was a birthday dinner for my daughter. We’ve been to Bernies before and enjoyed it. On Thursday night the menu was very limited. No beef except hamburgers, no pizza, no crab meat, it was very disappointing. The server was very kind but no explanation from the chef.

    I don’t know if this was a fluke or if Bernie’s is just suffering from severe understaffing, but my experience for brunch was really not great. Our orders came out very spottily. Two people had waters of the four of us for like 15 minutes (on the very hot upper deck), then we got more waters and half our drinks but the waiter had completely forgotten about the other half. Waited a long time for food which can be forgiven during a busy brunch day, but one person was served a good 45 minutes before everyone else and was done before anyone else even got their food. Then my food came out, and it was a good 20 minutes before the other two in our party had food. When they eventually got their eggs Benedict, the Canadian bacon had been subbed for sausage in both of their meals, effectively ruining them because neither of those two people liked sausage but they were starving enough that they didn’t want to bother ordering another dish so they just ate around the sausage. We wouldn’t have minded if we had been told the kitchen was out of ham (what we’re assuming happened because it’s happened to me the first time I was there as well). We just wish we’d been given the opportunity to choose something else from the menu or at least had part of the entrees comped or something. There was also a DJ on the upper level who was blaring music so loudly we had to yell to hear each other. Granted, we were seated close to the speaker, but still. I don’t usually leave reviews, but this has to be my worst dining experience in the city in the last 7 years I’ve been here. Very cute atmosphere with a lot of potential and the cocktails and coffee were very tasty! Just horrible service.

    We waited for over an hour for our entrees to come, that we had to ask for it to go. We barely got an apology and nothing was comped, we paid for food we never actually got to eat. When we got home and were finally able to heat the food up, we were unimpressed.

    My husband and I took his parents out for brunch and we all had a good time. Tables were a bit small for 4 people but the food, prices, and service were good. Would go back again. Bathroom is on the second floor so wouldn’t recommend for people like my in-laws who couldn’t do stairs.

    I ordered the shrimp and grits, and one pancake. I wasn’t a huge fan of any of the food. They were quite busy which I initially took as a good sign, so that would potentially account for the service being a bit slow. I requested one pancake on the side and inquired about price prior since only a stack of pancakes was offered on the menu as a side, for $8. I was told I could order just one no problem for less than $8. Unfortunately, when the bill came, I saw that I was charged $8. I was told it was because it was a specialty pancake. I did not request a speciality pancake but instead was told that’s what they had that day and accepted. That’s too much to pay for one pancake that I did not even like. And we had to look for the wait staff numerous times. I don’t believe I will return for another visit.
