Bernie's has recently been acquired by a new owner and the charm is gone. Pizza crust was not good. Toppings were ok, but nothing special. Sauce was somewhat ketchup-like. The service was not great either. The obviously new server offered up three sizes of soda. We ordered the large, but she brought us empty glasses and told us to help... More

Take a time machine back to the 1960s. That is what it feels like when you step through the door at this venerable pizza joint. It is located in a strip mall off Q street near the police station, and to say the decor is modest, is, well, almost kind. Wood paneling, a very small bar, and two rooms. There... More

Just ate at our favorite Millard pizza place even though we moved 350 miles away. Still the same home spun pizza. His pizza is what we compare all others. Thin crust, homemade sausage, hand grated cheese, Homemade sauce. If you don't like Bernie's, you must like a different kind - he has no deep dish etc. Good Christian man.

This is not a gourmet pizza joint. The toppings are your basic selections of pepperonni, hamburger, Canadian bacon ect. Inside is not upscale but the pizza is the best in town. Great crust, right amount of cheese and sauce. Bernies doesn't have delivery but going there is half the fun.

I was not impressed. I live in midtown Omaha and will not make this drive again for this pizza. The restaurant itself might be the most disgusting building I have ever been in. The floors looked dirty. It was dark and needed updating badly. It was worse than several dive bars I have been to. Our waitress was very nice.... More

The pizza was fine, but we felt absolutely unwelcome. Kind of like showing up uninvited to a stranger's house for dinner... A seriously uncomfortable dining experience.

I found Bernies after it was listed closest to our Hotel, when I searched on my GPS. I went there at night and found it easily. It certainly is not a fancy building. It was quiet when I got there on a Sunday evening. The interior was also not fancy. If you are looking for fancy, go elsewhere. However, I... More

It's everything you'd expect from a hometown pizzeria. Good pizza, good people and an atmosphere that just...I don't know how to describe it really...it just says "pizza" from the moment you walk in. You can actually see it in About Schmidt. I was lucky enough to grow up a block from the place but it's famous in Omaha.

Amazing pizza, amazing service. They are famous for a reason. This is one of the best pizzas you'll ever try. Closed on monday's but worth a trip to this restaurant other nights. Very casual, hometown eatery--super family friendly. Kids will love Bernie and his wife who ate onsite every day.
