Possibly the best hamburger I’ve ever had and I have 56 years of hamburger consuming experience. Couldn’t recommend Bernies more. That is my new favorite place when catching a show at The Keswick Theater.

Service was great from both our waitress and bartender. The food and drinks were even better. The cheesesteak and pretzel with suasage cheese dip was amazing.

Disappointing lack of welcome on arrival. Host was so preoccupied that we patiently waited for some kind of acknowledgement until it became increasingly awkward. When she finally did acknowledge our presence - there was no pleasantries exchanged - no thank you for making a reservation - just an indication that she would need to reset the table. That process was excruciatingly slow. Thankfully - once seated our server was great. The food was good for three of us. One person found a hair at the bottom of his plate of food.

We had a group of 7 for lunch- place was pretty empty. Our server was very accommodating and most people were happy with their entrees. One had to send hers back because it was too spicy and they readily brought her something else - crab cake and she enjoyed it. Will return!!

Usually pretty busy, their brunch on the weekend is the best. The drinks are always strong. The food is good, hot and not too expensive.

Our first time to a Bernie's. We were running a few minutes late because of Friday traffic.
Chris and Annika could not have been more helpful. They made sure our order was in and we got to our show on time. My burger was fabulous. We can't wait to go again! Thank you Bernie's.

Started out good but service fell off just after dinner was served. Waited 30 minutes for desert which ended up awful. Grilled pound cake. Code for stale cake. Never going back. This was their last chance.

If you don't get the nicer tables surrounding the 'fire pits' the rest of the seating feels like a cafeteria.

Great food and service. I was on a date and literally had to shout across the small table because they put us less than 12inches away from a party of 8. We had to slide our table over a few inches when the man sitting next to me got up to go to the bathroom but there was another couple on the other side of us and then we became uncomfortably close to that table. So great food and service but definitely felt like they forced us into a spot when there wasn’t actually enough room.

Bernie’s is a sweet and cozy place. The service this time was super slow. The food was meh. Chicken tenders came out burnt and fries were like warm. The thing that bothered me the most was the noise from the air conditioner/heating contraption above us. It was an alternating loud rumble for mins at a time and then it would stop. Very annoying!

Good food and nice beer selection but they need to do a better job managing their reservations. I've dined at Bernie's twice in the last 3 weeks before shows at the Keswick and both times we were not seated until 20 - 30 minutes after the reservation time. When you are trying to get a meal before a show, as many that go to Bernies are, you often have a tight timeframe so 20-30 minutes waiting for a table that you had a reservation for is not really acceptable.
