"What a pleasant surprise to find this gem in the middle of the small village of Montgomery Center, Vermont. Upon the recommendation of the innkeepers where we were staying, my husband and I gave it a try. Ignore the outward appearance of the building and the decor---the food's the thing. The staff was friendly and accommodating. My husband had the turkey dinner with all the fixin's and I had a maple grilled salmon (done to perfection). Both of us enjoyed our meals immensely. " -Barbara W., October 2011


"This un-pretentious restaurant is one of my favorites in the area. I recently had lunch there, and am constantly amazed at the quality of the food and fabulous value this place offers. They invest all their money in the local and fresh ingredients they use, and though it may not be the most beautiful building on the street, their food is number one!! One of the reasons I chose to locate to this small town is the selection of quality restaurants within walking distance of the front door of our bed and breakfast so our guests would not lack convenience and choice. When we moved, my partner and I ate here almost every day while our inn was undergoing renovations. The owner, John, was always so accommodating to us. For example, I LOVE iceburg lettuce salads, and he was always happy to make up a special salad just for me. I am a big soup eater, so he always serves my soup in an extra deep bowl, I like chili with spaghetti, so he makes it that way just for me. The list goes on and on. Going to Bernies is like going to a friend's for dinner, except that friend is an amazing cook with an unlimited pantry!!!"  -Jay Kerch, owner Phineas Swan, Montgomery Center, VT
