As a kid and even in my 20's everyone raved about bernies. It was always so good! Upon my last 2 visits I was disappointed with both. The quantity just does not match the price, canned green beans and prime rib that they are famous for just falling so short of expectations. Service is also lacking. We won't go back... More

Went with a large group and it didn't disappoint. The elegance of an old fashion dining car with several rooms attached. The service was exceptional and boy does the staff get a workout. People are lined up in the parking lot waiting to get in and once you taste the food you'll know why. We tried a variety of dishes... More

An hour later, we called back to ask if we could change the reservation to 8 in the railroad car. It was confirmed.... More

We were lucky and got in. They offer a wide variety of food, including comfort food. I had Yankee pot roast - huge serving.... More

Outstanding, as usual. Other restaurant owners need to dine here to see what the world's best prime rib is all about. Tender, tasty & huge!

Finally got the chance to eat here while in the area for a wedding. Known for havivg an actual railroad dining car and their slabs of prime rib, that's exactly where I sat and what I ordered. They give you a choice of 3 sizes beginning at 16oz then up from there. I chose the mid size. Nearly 3" thick... More
