Bern’s steakhouse is a place not to be heard about second hand but to be experienced. This restaurant is fine dining at its most exquisite form. The host are extremely engaging and pleasant. The waiters are in full tuxedos and anxious to take you on the journey with them. You most definitely will get what you pay for at here, a full four course meal. There is a fifth course, if you leave room to walk up Stairs and partake in Harry Waugh’s Dessert room at Bern’s.
As a kid, I always told myself I would eat at Bern’s one day. We would pass by the restaurant each night on the way home, I could smell the grade a steaks from a mile away. We would literally roll our windows down to catch the smell. I really didn’t think it would take several decades for it to manifest. Lol.
1. Onion soup. Amazing to the end. The cheese is the most addictive on top. You literally have to break the edges in in order to get inside the soup.
2. The most amazing toss salad. Two things I learned: the black olives are marinated for a month in olive oil, herbs, & spices (Hence, the reason they stand out amongst the rest of the salad when eating them); The vegetables are grown inhouse at the kitchen. The freshest salad and most memorable I’ve encountered. Simple but delightful.
3. The loaded a bake potato. The excitement around this course, it’s prepared in front of you by the waiter. The bacon bits are amazing which gives an off the charts acquired taste.
4. Now for the main course, a 1 inch cut of filet mignon. I prefer my steak medium well in which leaves the center slightly pink in color. The filet was mouth watering. The carmalized carrots were my favorite. The onion rings and mixed vegetables followed suit in being nothing less than good eating. The most surprising part about this 4 course meal is that it was all inclusive. Yes, everything was included. Now I just gave you the most affordable way of how to eat affordable at a 4.8 of 5 stars restaurant. I paid less than $45 bucks for this 4 course meal and that included tax. I am more than pleased with the service, price, ambiance, and the dessert room.

We turned down the tour of the kitchen (in which was also inclusive with our meal), to head over to Harry Waugh’s dessert room just upstairs. The famous dessert room is now its own emtity by Bern’s. The dessert night cap was the icing on the cake. Lol. I came with the intentions on getting a banana foster but no one wanted to join me. The banana foster has a two people minimum. I went with the Granny Smiths Apple pie as an alternative. I switched out the cinnamon ice cream scoop for the graham cracker ice cream highly recommended by my waiter. Let’s just say he didn’t steer me wrong and I truly indulged in this one.
But first Coffee, this literally had to be the best cup of regular coffee ever. You would have to see for yourself. The good thing about Harry’s Waugh’s dessert room is that if you felt daring you can by pass dinner and go straight to dessert. It’s a dessert fine dining.
