    Absolutely fantastic! order a steak or seafood? You get a salad, soup, baked potato, cheese toasts, and veggies with your order! Take a tour of the kitchen/wine cellar and head up to the dessert room!

    It’s all about decadence at Bern’s, where the menu is brimming with excess-caviar, oysters, foie gras, truffled steak tartare, seven cuts of steak and a 7,000 bottle wine list. Read more

    This is the best steak house I ever been to. I love steak and the wine collection over there, in additional, you can not miss out the dessert room on the second floor, a lot of dessert to choose from

    This place was amazing. Excellent steak and one of the best onion soups ever. Tour of wine cellar and kitchen was fantastic. Loved the desert room upstairs .

    The entire experience from start to finish was amazing. You have to get the wine and kitchen tour. It's a must do. Dessert room is great. 2 pages if dessert...50 of after dinner drinks

    Best meal of your life, but its pricey. Biggest private wine collection in the country, and they do an amazing tour of the wine cellar and kitchen if you request it. Visit the dessert room!

    Baronial chophouses are a cornerstone of America’s restaurant culture, but Bern’s, which opened in 1956, exists in its own west Florida dimension of eccentricity and excellence. Read more

    No Jeans, wear a suite men. Get a tour of the Kitchen and celler of over 4000 wines! Amazing! Try the steak but anything on the menu will be wonderful. Staff is so helpful and great.

    The best place to spend with your family. It has separate room with a different design.You can get the tour and see their cellar which contains more than 6,800 different selections of wine.

    While the steak here is obviously delicious, you MUST order a side of the truffle wild mushrooms. That side dish is the real hero, because it makes everything else taste so much better.

    The lobster bisque is amazing, though very rich. I'd suggest having it as part of their soup sample plate. Make sure to ask your waiter about the kitchen tour too.

    Bern's is a Gulf Coast legend. Half million bottles of wine, 19 varieties of caviar, steaks that are cut to your requested thickness, a cheese cave, a separate dessert room. Try the Chateaubriand.

    Not merely fine dining; it's an event! Caesar salad, prepped table side, is the best I've ever had! Delmonico, 8 oz, med, trimmed, is superb. Desserts like the sundae & apple pie are all that!

    Bern’s is a legend. Half million bottles of fine wine in their cellar is enough to vault it into fame, 19 varieties of caviar, steaks cut to your requested thickness, a cheese cave, a dessert room

    The interior resembles a bordello, but it's the huge array of aged beef — priced by cut, weight and thickness — that draws moans of ecstasy. The dessert room is a must.

    Very good food. Stake is tender and not bloody at all. Sounds like an expensive place, but amount of complimentary food that is included with the order of stake is more than enough to be full.

    Great service, and just okay food. The smallest French Onion soup I've ever seen. If the restaurant was any darker, you'd need a flashlight to see your food. All-in all, a good experience.

    The unassuming exterior says a lot about this steakhouse. It is in dire need of a revamp. Steaks are great, but the rest of the menu needs some modernization. I guess that's why there's Sideberns.

    Used to be great now there's steaks are just overpriced and not even as good as the meat you would get at a hibachi restaurant. The fruit and veggies aren't even organic either like they tell you.
