We are so absolutely pleased that we chose Berc’s. Everything was over the top spectacular from the martini to the chocolate truffle cake and fresh rich coffee. David our server was a pro and we felt relaxed knowing he had knowledge and finesse. As an...ex server from downtown Toronto for 40 years believe me.. I’m tough to please.More

My friend and I were seated near the fireplace and the booth was so comfortable. We were greeted at the door and welcomed and our server was awesome. We both ordered a warm salad for our lunch. I had mine with grilled shrimp and my...friend had scallops. We both agreed it was delicious. A slice of complimentary birthday cake paired well with my post meal java. Berc’s never disappoints !More

One of very few good dining establishments in Peterborough! Dined with group of eight on Saturday evening - restaurant was very busy when we dined. No major issues with food/presentation/service - EXCEPT that ALL dishes were heavily salted before they arrived at table. Unusual in...this day and age - and guests all commented on the excessive use of salt.More

We went for our anniversary and it was our first time at Bercs Steakhouse and it did not disappoint a very picky eater that relied on the ratings prior to making reservations. The atmosphere, the service and the food were excellent! Our server Claudia was...very kind and made our night and first experience a special one at Bers’s . I highly recommend this restaurant. We definitely will be returning!More

Great food and service. It was my first to goto Peterborough. Didn’t know what to have for dinner at beginning. We checked reviews and decided to give a try. It was a very good experience at the end. Strongly recommended.

Looking for Keg option for our anniversary. Crab cakes were OK, like every other one I've had, soup was very nice. Now, the "steak". What is with a 1/2" ribeye steak, cooked perfectly but so thin there was no time to render the fat areas...so they just turned to gristle. The meat was stringy and chewy and I did not finish it. Asparagus was undercooked, mushrooms and Neptune topping were good. Expected way better for a costly main. My wifes filet was perfect.More

We have been to Berc's numerous times and this is why we chose to celebrate Father's Day here. Unfortunately, dinner was awful. From salad to mains, there seemed to be something wrong with everything. The steaks weren't cooked as ordered, chicken was dry, twice baked...potatoes were more like M & M's and everything was delivered to the table very slowly. Considering we had a wee baby in our party, this was very lax on the part of the server. The waitress was actually non attentive and not very professional. Our experience wasn't limited to our table. Another large table complained about the same things as we were leaving. Certainly not the quality we were expecting based on previous visits. At those prices, we can't afford to give Berc's another try to redeem themselves.More

My wife and I took our friends out to Bercs for dinner on a Friday night a week before Christmas. We made reservations and couldn’t get the time we wanted so settled on 5:15 pm. We were told that we only had two hours to...dine before the next group came in. We arrived and the restaurant was extremely busy even at that early time. We thought two hours was enough time to enjoy our meals before having to depart. We unfortunately ran out of time for coffee or dessert which wasn’t a big deal at the end of the day as we understood that others would be waiting. David was our server. He was very professional and good at his job however I guess because he was so busy didn’t really chat much other than to take orders etc which was also not an issue. The restaurant is a throwback steak house nicely decorated for Christmas. Food was good but I guess I expected a greater experience. Fair or not, I kept comparing our evening to the many times we’ve eaten at The Keg. First of all, we had to order the warm bread as an appetizer. At the Keg they bring you as much warm bread as you desire at no charge. The food at Bercs in our opinion was no better than the Keg yet it was more expensive. Overall we’re happy we finally had a chance to eat here even though I don’t think we’ll be back anytime soon.More

Found Berc’s online while looking for a place to eat during a recent stay in Peterborough. What a lovely find! The restaurant has the decor and feel of an old-fashioned “steakhouse “, bringing back memories of when eating out was a special occasion. The food...was absolutely amazing. I learned all their food is homemade, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I noticed lots of awards posted when leaving, certainly well deserved! Staff were courteous and very efficient. Will definitely return when in the area.More

Had reservations for 6:45 we were a few minutes early, by 8:20 our food still hadn’t arrived at the table so we got up to pay for our drinks and appetizers and leave, our food was about to come out apparently (it was 8:30 at...this point they close at 9) they were dead from 7:30 onwards people who ordered 5 minutes before us were already paying and leaving. We took our food to go since it was ready they only gave us a 20% discount and then a $50 gift certificate. Having worked in restaurants in the past who classified themselves as fine dining any place I worked if that had of happened it would have been a fully comped meal. Our server herself was amazing considering the circumstances but this is not somewhere I’d recommend going.More

We absolutely loved our first experience at Berc’s steakhouse. We had the four course meal and the coup (Potato Curry) was the highlight of the meal for us both. The service and ambiance were wonderful. We will visit again! Thanks, Berc’s!
