One of the benefits of dining at Berns Steakhouse is going upstairs. Wonderful coffee drinks and exceptional deserts. Private booths for the entire family.

We loved our visit to the Harry Waugh dessert room. Great after dinner drink menu. We were excited to see Grappa on the menu. The five of us shared a Taste of Bern's,chocolate peanut butter truffle, trio of liquid center cakes.

A special setting for special desserts. Yes, you can just visit the dessert room, but why? End your dinner at Bern"s in the dessert room for fabulous desserts, coffees, and after dinner drinks.

After dining at Bern's we went upstairs to the Waugh dessert room. All the desserts and drinks are created inhouse and are excellent.

Love, love, love the dessert room at Bern's! It is the perfect ending to a fabulous evening. The macadamia nut ice cream is the most delicious ice cream I have ever had. The ambiance is wonderful. Each party has their own cozy, private room to enjoy the expansive desserts, cheeses, coffees and cognacs while listening to the piano or other... More

Made reservations at Bern's Steak House for romantic evening but the topper was after dinner we went upstairs for dessert. This place is awesome!! Every desert you can think of and more. We each tried something different and both of us were amazed. I highly recommend saving some room at dinner for a visit to the Desert Room.

The dessert room is a very special place for celebrations! The booths are private and fun with the options for selecting music to listen to while eating the wonderful array of desserts.
