I came here for happy hour with a few friends. There are some very good deals here! I got a moscow mule. We had some fries and the platter was quite big. Also, someone ordered the burger and said it was one of the best burgers they've had. I'm excited to come back here when the rooftop is open

I went here with my husband for happy hour and had a great time. The drinks were extremely reasonable, the bartender was great and we had some excellent fries.  We walked in at 5ish and it was good but not super crowded. We had tried to come in the summer to hang out on the roof, but  couldn't get in. We are going to try when it gets warmer.  Great service, drinks, and snacks. Excellent option in river north.


One of my new favorite places in River North! With an area that has had new restaurants popping up on every corner, Bernie's somehow slid in without many people knowing about it. I was pleasantly surprised to find I had no problem making a reservation for it and getting a table on the roof top with a great view! The rooftop is the place to sit and they have parts that are wide open or covered for shade. They also have a u-shaped bar with a tv for sports. 

The food and cocktails are amazing. The food is set up for sharing between small and large plates. My favorites were the lamb hashwi and eggplant caponata for small plate are absolutely amazing and we may have ordered and extra plate of each. For large plates, the sea bass or any seafood option is a great choice, but the hidden gem is the burger. Where has this burger been and why has no one said anything about it. I would put this burger up against any other burger in the city. 

The other thing we were surprised about was the happy hour from 4-7. You can get a great buzz and leave stuffed for just $15-20 bucks! A perfect spot to meet up with friends for after work.


Happy Happy Happy hourrrrr!! My friend recommended Bernie's for their 4-7 pm happy hour, M-F and boy, it'll make you happy.  Pop up on the near empty rooftop at 4 because aroun 5/5:30, it'll be packed with sun worshipping River North folk. Don't worry, they don't bite. For $5, you have your choice of a handful of tasty mediterrean inspired appetizers, like eggplant caponata, and a savory lamb hummus, to pair with 4-5 different $5 drink options, including wine, beer, a cocktail of the day, and a moscow mule.   Server was a weird surfer hipster hybrid with impeccable service. Not one bad word to say!
