We have been coming to Kitty Hawk for 20 years. I don't know why we haven't tried Bernie's before. The meal was outstanding. Try the Brazilian Steak. It is truly swoon worthy. This place stays crowded but worth the wait.

Waitstaff were nice and the food was good. Tons of TVs. Good for a casual night out. The Brazilian steak was yummy!

Feels like a chain restaurant...even though it isn't. We sat at the bar and had great service.....food was tasty, as were the drinks, but nothing "blew our mind"....best part of the meal was a dessert shooter. Might go back again, but think I will look...More
