This was our first time at Bernie's. The breakfast was great all around, as was the service. We felt like we were the only people in the restaurant. Will definitely return next time we're in the area.

Nice variety of choices on the regular menu as well as the daily specials from homemade lasagna to shrimp mac&cheese to nachos to grilled sirloin to seafood - something for everyone. Relaxed setting with friendly staff.

We went on Mexican night during a vacation week in the area. The mexican food was mediocre and the margarita tasted like a standard sour mix with a shot of cheap tequila. Nothing rave-worthy here.

We were very surprised to find the best quesadillas we've ever had in the tiny Vermont town of Montgomery. The restaurant is cozy and the staff are very welcoming. Highly recommended.

No matter what we order, it is always good! This chef-owned, modest place is an absolute gem. Mexican is awesome, but breakfast is also always excellent.

Dinner is awesome. Other meals are hit or miss. John is a very good chef and his food is very good. His Monday and Thursday Mexican food is authentic.

Everything you could want in Montgomery. Nothing fancy, but the food is great. I especially recommend the fish tacos.
