Bernie's is fabulous! Or maybe I got lucky twice... Day 1: $10 Corned Beef Hash...its HUGE! And tasty. Good coffee too. Day 2: $10 Breakfast Burrito...I'm from San Diego, CA, and I approve of this thick breakfast burrito. The carnitas could use some more flavor, but overall its great. Super clean, friendly staff, good food at reasonable prices, and there... More

Food was good, not outstanding but overall basic breakfast choices. Service was great however, very friendly and kept my coffee hot which is VERY important to me.

Of course Bernie's was packed on a Sunday morning, as it should be when you are a perfect diner. The biscuits and gravy were heavenly. The potatoes are worth a visit. The waitresses were fast & friendly. Worth a trip to Billings!

Be prepared to wait for a table-this is a very busy place! Our party of five had to wait a little over half an hour. My food(the traditional breakfast) was over salted, but everyone else's was very good. The club sandwiches are enormous! Make sure you try the huckleberry iced tea. It is so good!

Been there 15-20 times, mostly for their breakfasts although the lunches were quite good too. They have interesting variations on staples like the biscuits, french toast, etc. while it's obvious they're using very high quality ingredients from the eggs to the meats. Everything's got a lot of flavor rather than just cooked and salted while the coffee is worth coming... More

We were surprised by the quality of the food we enjoyed for breakfast. Our waffles tasted as if made from scratch, not a mix and the bacon was of very good qualtiy and flavor.

Food okay but took too long to arrive. Server was not that efficient even given a low number of patrons at 7 AM. Definitely room for improvement,

We ate at this restaurant when it was rather new to the Billings restaurant scene and recently and were so impressed. It is cute, though sometimes noisy due to all the hard surfaces, but has great food presented in a very nice way.

I went to Bernie's Diner with a friend. It's located in the historic Northern Hotel on the first floor. The decor is reminiscent of a 1950"s dinner. We sat at the counter. I ordered the buffalo burger, and it is the second best buffalo burger I have ever had. I got sweet potato fries with it but truly the burger... More

My husband and I enjoyed a great breakfast here - loved the food and a fun atmosphere. The coffee cups are huge and kept full by an efficient friendly wait staff. Would certainly recommend this restaurant for something a bit different from the same old place.
