Lobster sliders on crescent rolls, what, what?? Had them twice in three days. Best ones I have ever had. Great bartenders, party atmosphere, perfect place to watch the fireworks.

I love the food, drinks, and overall experience of Bernie's. They added a brand new stage that sounds amazing. I can't wait till next summer!!!

When we were in Hampton Beach in 2015, we visited Bernie's. The weather had changed and it was cold by the time that we visited. There were very few other patrons around but it was quaint and quiet. This year, it was still warm in September. The area was bustling and Bernies was in full swing. Lots of booze guzzling... More

Just here for drinks early evening. We wanted to see the beautiful harvest full moon come up on the ocean horizon. Bartender was very sweet.

We sat out on the deck so we had a beautiful view of the beach. We also had 2 whole Maine fresh lobsters and choice of 2 sides for $13.95. Very nice meal!

I know it's not exactly high season, but they were out of so many things on the menu. We sat at the downstairs bar because we wanted to chat, and it looked like a band was getting ready to play upstairs. The bartender was very nice, but clearly overwhelmed with the amount of people he needed to serve, and kept... More

Have visited many times. Great spot, beach view, always a good time. Service a little slow, bartenders not in any hurry. Location is the #1 reason to check it out. Bathrooms are filthy, use the public restrooms across the street. Makes me wonder how clean the kitchen is...

On a trip over from the UK i wanted to head somewhere that had beer and music, this place had a good DJ on labor day Sunday and the beer was only $14 dollars for a bucket of land shark beers (4 cans in a bucket), i suspect it being labor day was the reason for the big crowd. The... More

My girlfriend and I went to Bernie's while bar hopping on the Sunday afternoon of Labor Day weekend. We waited for 10 minutes at the bar with empty seats before we were served. My girlfriend waited for over 15 minutes after ordering her second drink and on flagging one of the staff behind the bar was told, "I'm working the... More

Recently renovated to add a large patio with raised stage and VIP area - on the ocean and the view is always amazing. Food is good but service has seem to taken a hit from years past - maybe too big too fast so hopefully it gets better - years past was always greeted with a smile and had great... More
