Each of our burgers has the perfect blend of ingredients, carefully selected by our chef. Bernard's Gastropub & Eatery in Roanoke, VA serves top quality meats and veggies, and it shows by the explosive taste!
Our bar is filled with the best craft beer, cocktails, and more. Visit us for happy hour! We look forward to serving you, and we are proud to be the go-to restaurant and pub for you and your loved ones.
Good people...good environment.
Beautiful restaurant with a great menu. I came, along with a group of friends, to celebrate a friend's birthday. I had the blueberry martini as a drink, shared some raw oysters as an appetizer, and got the seafood special as a dessert. The service was absolutely great and everyone's food was absolutely amazing. Bernard's has made its way onto my favorites list after this experience!
Fantastic food and worth the wait!! I had the Cottage Pie which I highly recommend.
Honestly, I'd never heard of a gastropub until tonight, but the food was absolutely fantastic!! If you're in the area, 10/10 recommend
We absolutely loved it - and HIGHLY recommend it! Excellent burgers - I had the Texan. Cheese and charcuterie board was enough for 3 or 4 people and a great start to the meal. Chicken tenders for kids are Chick-fil-A quality - or better :) Drinks were good but not great. Prices are VERY reasonable. Staff was outstanding. They were short staffed but our waitress was very attentive, very efficient, and very friendly!
Amazing food and really great service. The corned beef on the Irishman sandwich was delicious. The French onion soup hit the spot!
This is a regular stop for my lunch rounds downtown during the work week. The food is ALWAYS fantastic. I also recently used them for a client luncheon. Awesome response from the group. Especially for the Banana Butterscotch pudding.
2nd time going there the food,service and atmosphere is top notch the bourbon glazed salmon was out of this world the potatoes under were probably the greatest thing in the world.the bacon gave it the perfect amount of salt crispy outside soft inside salmon cooked to perfection.i wont even talk about the fried fickles because there are no words to explain.The wife had the chicken picatta was perfect all good size portions the wait staff very friendly and attentive.in my opinion one of the best places to eat in Roanoke.only thing that i think they need to expand on is the bourbon selection atleast i can drink Woodford while im there JOB WELL DONE
First time at the restaurant, my wife and daughter took me there to try something new. I had their cottage pie and it was too die for. Service was great to. Our waitress just fell all over herself to make sure we were happy. I didn't catch her name but she was fantastic
My new favorite restaurant! Everything Ive gotten here has been fresh, homemade and delicious. Some of my favorites are the mussels and the caprese appetizers, the shrimp and grits entree, the Parmesan chicken sandwich, and the butterscotch banana pudding for dessert. Good ambience and Ive always had good service here.
Sat at the bar solo for dinner. Great service from everyone at the front, at the bar, and I loved the view from the bar of the owners personally preparing each dish to perfection in the kitchen. A cup of French onion soup and parmesan garlic fried chicken sandwich with hand cut fries was probably enough for two. Washed down with two local IPAs. This place checks all of the right boxes: great food, local selections, genuinely happy staff, and an unpretentious yet refined atmosphere.
Delicious!! I love a good fish and chips. The fish was flavorful and not overly breaded. The drinks where great and well priced. Definitely will be back when I'm in the area again.
What an outstanding restaurant this is. Great owner chefs with amazing food selection. Had a few oysters Rockefeller to start followed by seafood plate with scallops, tiger shrimp and crab cake over a bed of ruzzuto. Banana butterscotch desert to finish!
You will not be disappointed!
-Staff was amazing, full restaurant and bar, appx 50-60 patrons, all handled by a staff of 6, 3 in the kitchen, 2 bartenders/servers and I believe the 6th was the oyster shucker.
-Food was absolutely amazing, portions were large, go with an appetite.
-Make a reservation!
Very nice place and awesome food. We loved it!
first time dining here and it definitely did not disappoint
Attentive service and phenomenal food in a relaxed yet inviting atmosphere. We will be back.
Love this place. Cozy, friendly staff and most important---yummy food.
Love the food and staff.
great food (I had the Irishman) & great staff
Relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff, good food. The short ribs were delicious.
we were looking for a place to eat a birthday dinner away from the Valley View Mall area and googled Roanoke restaurants and Bernard's came up. Fantastic food ! The Bourbon Maple salmon was to die for; it just melted in your mouth. My husband had the Sailor sandwich which was good with the pastrami and knockwurst. The staff and chefs were very gracious. We will be coming back.
Excellent food and service. Comfortable and inviting decor. Surprisingly large menu. Delicious burgers. Fries and cheese potatoes are to die for.
Winner! Bernard's has really impressed us the times we've been there. The service has been excellent and the food has been amazing. Shrimp & Grits are ON POINT!
Great food, drinks and service! The mussels carbonara were to die for. We will be back!
Awesome place! A must go!
Excellent drinks and food great menu.
This restaurant is fantastic! The server was excellent and the food is even better! There isn't a lot of tables so call for reservations. This is the best place I have been to in Roanoke in years. I am planning to have a birthday dinner for several people in late August. I know they will all love it. You have to go!
The food is amazing , the portions are huge and the servers are caring and attentive. The atmosphere is cozy and casual with a fine dining flair. Don't miss the cottage pie and the mussels carbonara !
The meat was nothing special(the person I was eating with said it looked and tasted frozen) but other than that I really enjoyed it. Not many gluten free options as well. Our waitresses was very good about communicating dietary restrictions
YOU have to try this place! Atmosphere is chill and welcoming. The fresh made margarita with jalapeo is amazing! The salmon dish is to die for.IT WAS FIRE! To spite being short staffed and crazy busy the evening I stopped by, the bartender and cooks were pleasant and provided great service. The bartender is outstanding and I love sitting at the bar!! Every time I visit the lake, this is my go to place! My friends love it too!
Bernard's is one of our favorite places to eat in Roanoke, hands down. I've had their Oysters Rockefeller multiple times and it's the best I've ever had. Their oysters are fresh, clean, and delicious. I also love their burgers, and the fries are crisp and perfectly seasoned. The Steakhouse burger is amazing, and always my go to. I've never had a bad experience, service or food-wise here.
Bernard's was chosen from looking at the menu online. We met friends there and were pleasantly surprised by the cozy atmosphere. Wait staff was quick and accurate, and the food outstanding! Whether local or from out of town, Bernard's needs to be on your list to visit!
The food was exceptionally delicious for our dinner tonight. The poached pear salad was amazing. The fish and chips disappeared, and the dessert was awesome. The service was great and responsive. Extra kudos for making your salad dressing!
One of the best meals that I've had in Virginia in over 18 years!!! Thank you to the entire team for making it a wonderful night and dining experience! P.S. - try the homemade Banana and Butterscotch pudding...you're welcome!
My husband and I had date night here, my husband hardly ever gets a "wow factor" when it comes to restaurants and he got that here! Everything he tried was amazing! So this is the new date night spot! The food is incredible and the service is awesome too! Eat local!
The shrimp and grits are 10/10. Definitely recommend!
First time here and Ty was on point and did a great job making sure we had what we needed. Food was perfect. Definitely will be back.
I had the Bourbon glazed Salmon. Absolutely fantastic. I'll be back.
Tye is absolutely amazing! We will definitely come back. Tye took the time to explain the different whiskey and scotches they had there. He was absolutely amazing! I never finish my plate for any dinner and tonight I finished my whole plate. I had the bourbon glazed salmon. It was amazing. Tye thank you so much for making us feel welcomed. Cant wait to see you again! Heres to opening the King George V.
Mostly great. Friendly service. Tasty food. Great menu. The sausage gravy was waaay under-salted, though. Maybe the kitchen missed a step in the recipe? Great otherwise.
Eat here. Please. It's that good. You will not be disappointed.
The food is always awesome, sometimes we use the online reservations and no issues. Fast friendly service and always made to order, no microwave in the kitchen.
Great food and service
Great meal, amazing cocktails, in the heart of downtown Roanoke. Try the chicken piccata! So good!
Food is always great...wait staff friendly...great with people with allergies...highly recommend Bernard's gastropub!
Everything is delicious! Best brussel sprouts EVER!
This is the first time I have been here. We are on company business and wanted something close to the Hampton.
The staff was fantastic and the environment was open and friendly.
I was looking for somerhing different and this was it. I had the Irishmen and it was fantastic. If you are looking for a different place to enjoy some great food visit the Gastropub.
Food was incredible !
The food was great but things were a little chaotic. They don't have their reservation system figured out quite yet. Place was loud and full of life if that is what you are looking for. Frickles were really good.
I cannot believe I have not eaten here before! Drinks were on point and the food beyond incredible!!! Thank you so much for a great dinner!
One of the best restaurants in Downtown Roanoke!
Good sit down lunch spot for a sandwich
Outstanding. The Thumbs & Toes
(Boneless wings) are great!
Followed by the Steakhouse Burger which was absolutely delectable with its candied bacon.
Felt like Id died & gone to heaven.
This place has made it onto my
Final Meal Request list.
Brendan at the bar is an excellent mixologist.
The most amazing food I have ever tasted in my entire life!!!! Words cannot do this place justice.
Awesome food, appetizers and drinks, a real hidden gem!
Eveleth food. Staff was very nice to talk to
Food was awesome
I took my wife to Bernard's Gastropub for our 33rd wedding anniversary during the COVID crisis. The restaurant was very clean, to include the restrooms, the staff were friendly and the tables were set at least 6' apart with temporary partitions set up between all tables. The food was DIVINE!!! We enjoyed a 5 star meal that you'd expect to get in a high end fancy restaurant in a place that was casual, comfortable and reasonably priced. I would HIGHLY recommend Bernard's Gastropub for lunch or dinner to anyone traveling in the Roanoke area. You will not be disappointed!
One of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at...
My girlfriend and I visit Bernards on the regular. Brunch, lunch, dinner... you name it, its delicious! I havent had a bad thing on the menu, but I ordered the filet recently and it was the best thing I have ever put in my mouth, hands down! Go check it out, you wont be disappointed.
I give this spot a thumbs up. Prices are decent for the quality. Food and atmosphere reminds me of Atlanta.
Did a good job with COVID protections. Food is excellent. Staff did not rush us when we had hoped for a relaxing dinner.
The steakhouse burger is the best burger I have ever had, by far.
good place to catch up with friends. the service was very friendly and attentive. the bill was average for the menu.
A quaint place with upscale food (reasonably priced), friendly staff, and great drink selection. Do yourself a favor and give this place a try!
My fianc and I have eaten here numerous times. Every time the meal is delicious. I have NEVER had a bad meal here and thats including appetizer, entree, dessert and drinks! The service is great and the atmosphere is fun. I HIGHLY recommend that everyone eat at Bernards. Best restaurant in Roanoke.
Great food and service. Don't pass up on this one.
I went here a few nights ago for dinner and it was so good! I ordered a cider and charcuterie board since I just wanted something a little on the lighter side. The fig preserve with the cheese and bread was delicious!
An always order the specials kind of place. Wow on the surf and turf w crabcake. Absolutely delicious
The food was great
Great experience. Service was wonderful, atmosphere great, social distancing was great, plenty of food on our plates. We left full. Would definitely return.
Always a fantastic experience! Good is phenomenal, atmosphere great, and even separators during this Covid time! Highly recommend and very upscale with reasonable prices!
We love going to Bernard's. Love the chicken sandwich, and the fries are delicious
Simple, warm atmosphere! BUT the food is AMAZING! A true culinary experience! Bourbon glazed salmon over crispy potatoes and asparagus WOW. They'll make everything to customer order! Our first time on our anniversary, but not our last...
Excellent place to dine. We go once a week and they've never disappointed us. Thanks for the great food and service.
Thank you for an amazing lunch today! Your restaurant is spotless and your staff is wonderful.
One of THE best places to eat in Roanoke. Cant go wrong with anything that you get and the service is always great. We always get Tye as a server because he is awesome!
Great atmosphere, everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The food was incredible!!! Especially the amazing fried pickles or Frickles as they called them. The portions were very generous and fair prices. I had the crab cakes and my husband had the shrimp and grits, we were both very very pleased! Cant wait for visit again.
This is one of my favorite downtown dining places... I can tell you from experience, the employees absolutely do observe COVID mask restrictions. Great food...maybe the best fish and chips I have ever had...I did remove my mask to eat.
Really really GREAT food...great service and very nice environment. Pay NO attention to detractors, they have never been there. Excellent health dept compliance. Food is fresh, well prepared and impressive. Greatest restaurant we have found in 3-4 years. You will be impressed !
We've eaten here many times and the food is great. We really like the Mussels appetizer with the bacon cream sauce! Crab cakes are our go to or the Steakhouse burger. Great food with small town flair.
I've seen all these recent posts due to political beliefs but my wife and I choose where to eat based on the quality of the food and the experience. While I may not agree with their politics, their food is AMAZING and we'll continue to eat there because finding great food here in Roanoke is slim pickings. I suggest the Chicken and Dumpling soup. It's divine!
I'm a foodie 100%. I travel hours just to have dinner at places this good. The chef is talented and skilled. The staff is personable and good at what they do. I will be there over and over again.
I've eaten here enough times now to confidently say that the food is consistently excellent
We were in Roanoke for an evening so we decided to try this local spot for the first time. We enjoyed the ambience, the service was wonderful, and the food was delicious! They were also extremely accommodating with food allergies. We even received a free dessert voucher as first time customers, so we can't wait to return!
We LOVE Bernards! Every dish is seasoned beautifully and has high quality ingredients. The sandwiches are incredible and the fries are so fresh and delicious. Curbside is smooth and the food is great even after the drive home! Eat here, you wont be disappointed!
One of the best places to eat in Roanoke. Amazing food and drinks! Excellent service! Great atmosphere! And the best part... Very reasonably priced. I can't wait to go back.
Upscale food in a relaxed environment. The food and cocktails are always amazing. The staff are super friendly. Recommend this place all day!
Love this place! The caprese salad was delicious. Fish and chips were spot on. Drinks were delicious. Our server Edward was attentive but not too attentive. Butterscotch banana pudding thumbs up. Staff were covid conscious. Buy local!
The food is excellent, with HUGE portions. Tasty cocktails, and wonderful service!
Fabulous food . Awesome service !! Love this place.
I loved the food and they were able to accommodate my gluten and dairy product allergies while delivering an excellent meal.
8 of us went for dinner. They accommodated us with reservations. The staff is great, and everyone enjoyed their meals.
Love Saturday Brunch! Biscuits and sausage gravy is a must. Crab eggs Benedict was scrumptious!
Good food for sure, but manager needs some social skills.
Great spot to hit for casual cocktails and amazing food. Good service as well.
My husband daughter and I visited here for lunch! The burger with candied bacon was amazing! It might be the best burger Ive ever had! My husband had the Irishman and said it was delicious! I highly recommended this restaurant. We loved it!
Came by here while I'm visiting. Nice servers and good drinks. I liked the casual atmosphere. I had shrimp and grits, which was pretty tasty. Was good for the rainy night! Would come back again :)
Excellent choice. Friendly, customer service oriented wait staff. We were 6 people and we all enjoyed our meals. So yummy. My favorite was the special of braised scallops, asparagus over risotto. It was cooked perfectly and made my taste buds dance.
Bernard's has the best Ribeye and Cuban sandwich's. Definitely worth the stop when you're in Roanoke, VA.
The Chef and his wife (Owners) were on the grill.
They pour there heart into every dish. Also, great
Charred Brussel sprouts. Highly recommend.
Everything we had here was delicious. We started with the frickles (fried pickles) with horseradish ranch, and I had the chicken Milanese while my husband had the cottage pie. So so good! All of it! But watch out! Portions are large, and if you're not careful, you won't have room for dessert!
The service was impeccable as well. We'll definitely return next time we're in town.
We just moved to Roanoke and my husband and I attended an event in downtown Roanoke. We met a nice couple that suggested we try Bernard's for dinner. It was getting late and I had a long day so I was a bit indecisive. My hubby persuaded me to give it a try and I'm so glad we did!
We ordered the Chicken Piccata and Bourbon-glazed Salmon. The food was amazing and the portions were huge! I got two more meals from the leftovers. The chef/owner even came out to welcome us to the restaurant which was a classy touch. We will be back!
