Outstanding ambience, fantastic customer service, amazing meals. I made the choice to try vanilla lush cake and yes it was scrumptious. Unfortunately though, shrimp cocktail was common. I seriously loved my visit here. I will likely return here.

Everything about Berns is exceptional. No complaints at all. Price is more competitive than other steak houses in the area - and for a better value given the incredible atmosphere, in my opinion.
