Hell Yeah!
This place is fantastic! Good live music, incredible food and drinks. Had the Lobster Rangoons and the Grilled Jamaican Jerk Mahi-Mahi. Can’t wait to eat there again and try something different.

Excellent Venue and Food!
This is where it’s at in Hampton Beach. The music/entertainment during the weekdays and weekends is phenomenal. The food is very good, fresh seafood large portions. Drinks are pricey, but that’s expected. People of all ages were enjoying the shows.

Great place
We were in Hampton for 3 nights. We’d go to the beach until noon then head there for lunch. Nothing like sitting outside enjoying a few libations and some munchies. Very accommodating with adjusting food, putting things on the side. Got us hooked on Kona beer, very tasty. Went there 3 straight days so must be doing something right.

Staff is the BEST
The staff at Bernie’s went above and beyond to help us. I recently had a total hip replacement, my neighbor and dear friend is on oxygen. Nether of us can climb stairs, many days just a walking up or off a curbing can be a challenge.
We wanted to go for a ride to the beach. Found a good parking space right across from a restaurant with outdoor seating; however the outdoor space was not open. Our friend ran upstairs to see if there was anyway we get served downstairs. The staff wasted no time opening the space for us. We were able to people watch, talk and relax.
The drinks were great, the food was great, but the staff were wonderful, exceeding our expectations and going overboard to help two senior citizens enjoy our day!

Fun place with great view
We stopped in for just a drink on a late Sunday afternoon. We were seated at a great table on the deck overlooking Hampton Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. We noticed an ice bucket with 4 tall Land Shark beers for only $14. The waitress was friendly, the beer stayed ice cold and the view and ambience were awesome. Splurged on a basket of fries which were hot and crispy. The thatch umbrellas, lively crowd and great scenery make this a fun spot.

Good food and drinks
Rooftop seeing overlooking hampton Beach. The lobster was amazing. There a nice selection and they offer daily specials. The drinks are well made and have fun names like Weekend at Bernie’s. Best atmosphere along the strip.

Good seafood
I ate dinner there. They had the Baked Haddock with Shrimp & Chorizo Sausage Crumb Stuffing Served with a Spiced Citrus Beurre Blanc. I was hesitant to order it because of the Chorizo sausage (which I love) as a stuffing, I didn’t think it would pair well with fish, I was wrong, it was excellent! Just the right amount of spice, and with the blanc it had a nice subtle kick and cooked to perfection. All in all I really enjoyed the meal. I would recommend you try it. Since I sat at the outside bar first floor, I had the opportunity to view other meals being served, all were great size and looked great. I saw a huge burger being brought out to the guy sitting close to me, when he cut it in half to eat it, the burger was cooked a med rare, and looked real appetizing . Give this place a try, I hope you like it!

Birthday dinner
Long wait (Friday night in July) but worth it, terrific lobster roll and steaks -attentive staff considering packed atmosphere. Recommend sitting on deck by the water. The extras were a nice perk (music, cornhole and free characturer drawings)!

Great Atmosphere!
What a great place to eat, drink and hangout with friends!! You cannot beat the lobster special. The bands, the deck, the seating all great. We will be back!!

Friday, Sept. 6th three of us visited Bernies. My friend and neighbor and I are both seniors with walking disabilities. I am sorry that we didn’t get any names of the employees who went so far out of the way to make us happy. Opened the outdoor seating for us and even though we were out of the way, the service was great. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Tipping is based on service IMO and I left a reasonable tip, if I could have afforded it I would have left a tip that was more than our check. You can not begin to imagine how appreciative we are, you truly made our day.

WE enjoyed Bernies before a show at the Casino Ballroom and found it to be hidden Gem! You don’t realize the sheer size of the place until you get upstairs and there a ton to do while you eat and drink. Good ratings as it overlooks the ocean and is fun.

Awesome first visit, everything was Fantastic!! Love the view all around, very friendly staff and drinks are incredibly yummy. Lobster Rangoon’s are Super Good and our clam dinners were Outstanding! We will now be calling Bernie’s our “go to” place at the Beach.

Lobster sliders on crescent rolls, what, what?? Had them twice in three days. Best ones I have ever had.

Beautiful beach overview. We wanted to see the beautiful harvest full moon come up on the ocean horizon. Bartender was very sweet.

If your looking to enjoy yourself you have found the right place! The atmosphere was amazing with an ocean view and outside seating.

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!

Great spot, beach view, always a good time. Location is the #1 reason to check it out.

Recently renovated to add a large patio with raised stage and VIP area – on the ocean and the view is always amazing.

We both got the lunch specials, one fried scallops and the other fried whole belly clams. Prices were great and the food was very good. The place had a really nice atmosphere and was overlooking the beach.

Great atmosphere with amazing beach and ocean view. Amazing cocktails and live music.

We went to this bar, highly recommended by locals. It was a beautiful bar with a great view, a nice breeze, and good music.

Loved the bar and beachy atmosphere!! The drinks come in cute tiki glasses, there is cornhole games and overall just a fun experience.

Both times we sat on the second floor and the view was great while your enjoying your favorite meal. Would definitely go back and recommend to everyone who is in that beach to visit this restaurant.

This was our first visit to Bernie’s. We loved the tiki atmosphere. We visited on a Monday and got there early – which was really good since the line formed right after we got there.

Excellent location. Great bar, great entertainment. Bartenders very accommodating and attentive.

This is the second time we have been there and it’s always a great time. Right on the beach music and plenty of atmosphere. Food is fantastic!

Fantastic spot! The food was amazing, the drinks were strong and quality and the deck was perfect! Such a fun night.

My husband and I ate here once. Very good seafood. Steamers were yummy. I had the trip of seafood, scallops, shrimp, and haddock with a cracker crumble. Excellent!

We scored a table along the front of the restaurant on the 2nd floor so our view of the ocean and beach was spectacular. Great for people watching too!

Best place I’ve been to in a while! Perfect element with the ocean, music, festive drinks and leis! Great environment. Food and drinks were also great! Would definitely return.

One of the best places on Hampton beach. Al (Owner) recently redid the entire place, created a huge deck extension overlooking the water, nice big bar and a large covered area in case it rains or is a bit chilly at night. Great drinks and always busy!
