My wife and I ate here and are we glad we did. We had to go outside to make sure we weren't in Atlanta. We never thought we would have this kind of dinning in this neck of the woods!!

We have dined here several times and love it. It is as close to fine dining that you will get in White Co. It is great inside and the servers are wonderful. The food is superb and we love it for special occasions. Make reservations. Highly recommend.

We were visiting the area for Valentines Day and asked our innkeepers for recommendations for a wonderful Valentines Day Dinner. Hands down they said "Bernies"! We called to secure a reservation before Christmas to be sure we got the seating that we wanted. Our dinners were fantastic. My husband had the bone in veal chop and I had the coffee... More

Love Bernie! She is a gracious host and she and her daughter really know how to spoil us. The atmosphere is relaxing and very attractive. Service goes above and beyond without being intrusive, and the food is delicious! Be sure to make reservations well in advance for special occasions.

We enjoyed a lovely evening with farm-to-table fresh ingredients cooked to perfection. The chicken piccata was tender and moist with a delicately flavored lemon sauce. The vegetables were fresh and cooked to order. We will definitely return for another great dinner and evening in a lovely place.

Eating here was like eating at a favorite aunt's house. The place is so cozy and inviting. Every table had a different set of salt and pepper shakers which I loved. The food was outstanding, and all homemade. You might consider making a reservation as this restaurant is very popular.

We held our group goodbye meal at Bernie's. What an amazing treat - melt- in- your- mouth filet mignon, salmon with the most delicious honey glaze you can imagine, and the list goes on.... Do not miss this restaurant run by family members for three generations! Chef Monda came out and met my group, gave them background on the house... 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.
