Cocktails were quite tasty! Soup was amazing! My husbands chicken pacata was very moist and flavorful and the filet was the best! We ended our superb dinner with the creme brûlée, what a delight.

Saw this while passing by one day and decided to return for a meal. We were not let down as Bernie cooked up a wonderful meal, the grouper was cooked to perfection. We loved the eclectic decor.

Bernie's menu may change according to what is freshest in the market. If having Italian is that important, I suggest you call ahead to whatever restaurant you pick. There is a good Italian in Dahlonega; see reviews... More

Please be aware that Bernie's Restaurant is a small family operated business. We do have seasonal hours as well as certain occasions that Bernie's Restaurant is CLOSED to the general public for small/private functions both on and off premises - we don't like to disappoint anyone who would like to dine with us. "Imagine" a quaint southern cottage, nestled in the hills of beautiful north Georgia. A peaceful setting, delicious fresh food, and a warm friendly atmosphere. The tables are set with linens, sterling silver and fresh flowers to enhance your dining experience. Bernie's is about the lost art of personal service.
