Description: One of the most famous, and popular, aspects of Bern's Steak House is its dessert room. Here guests can enjoy a leisurely and intimate end to their dining experience choosing from nearly 50 dessert choices to more than 1,000 dessert wines and spirits. The Harry Waugh Dessert Room was built as a tribute to Mr. Harry Waugh, an internationally known and respected wine connoisseur, director of Chateau Latour and good friend to Bern Laxer. Waugh's books and personal diaries on wine tasting are well known throughout the world.

This is an experience in itself. The private booths are awesome as are the thousands of after dinner drinks offered. One in our party had root beer schnapps and another a 30 year old port. Both excellent. The creme brulee and chocolate, chocolate, chocolate dessert were outstanding. The King Midas looks awesome as well (next time). Don't miss, even if you are stuffed from your delicious meal downstairs.

Cheers Russell R! We highly encourage you take the kitchen and wine cellar tour between dinner and dessert to help you find the room for the King Midas!

Just happened to be nearby —so thought we’d stop in at least for a dessert at this iconic establishment! The intimate wine barrel private booths with throw back personal music selection intercoms create a moment all by itself...Then these perfect desserts arrive and you realize why this room is worth a review separate from this wonderful restaurant! There is a pride in its quality that is noticeable.
