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

Eclectic little place but service was outstanding and meal was very good. Fresh warm bread, all homemade. French Onion soup was very good as was the fish. Veal was good. Waitress was outstanding and made it a very nice experience.

Was served buffet style, was very good. Historic property with a lot of farm house appeal. Service very attentive. Regular menu for other non group meals.

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.

What a great find. This little restaurant doesn't catch your eye when driving by and without the recommendation of our lodge owner, we wouldn't have stopped in. But, so glad we did. A great menu selection and every aspect of our choices was fabulous --...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.
