First visit, I asked for Mtn Trout ahead of time and had it upon reservations; 2nd visit was Italian night. Each time was above average.

Nice place to visit for a quiet date night. It was not far from Lucille’s Mountain Top Inn and Spa. The Staff was very nice and food was great.

This very well preserved home is decorated with an eclectic collection of period pieces. The waitstaff is friendly and helpful. The dishes are tasty and bring one back to home cooked meals on special occasions.

We spotted Bernie's while out exploring the roads around Helen, Georgia. A small restaurant in an old house with a full parking area were clear signs that something special was happening inside. What a jewel! Since it was kind of late, I politely asked the...More

Consistency of cuisine, setting, service and overall atmosphere is a challenge for any restaurant. We can attest - after another fine dinner, highlighted by the salmon special - that Bernie and her team are meeting and exceeding expectations. Looking back at our original review (Jan....More

There were four of us for lunch. Such a nice setting, and the nicest people. The food was very good, with many fine choices. They take all the time you need to describe the different menu items. Make a reservation, especially in high season. We...More

Bernie's is an old, familiar place. It's a converted house that's been around a long time. Unlike modern conversions that hardly resemble the former use, Bernie's looks like a converted house. The meal was delightful, well prepared and well served. It felt familiar and comfortable,...More

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.
