A unique culinary experience

Perfectly aged steaks. One of the largest wine collections in the world. An internationally famous dessert room. Wine cellar and kitchen tours available for all guests.

These elements have combined since 1956 to provide our guests with a unique culinary experience. Our prime steaks are cut to order, we serve vegetables that are grown locally on the Bern’s farm when available and sourced from the finest purveyors, and our menu includes 21 choices of caviar. Each visit to Bern’s Steak House takes you on a gastronomic adventure that defines Bern’s not as a meal but as an experience. We invite you to join us and experience Bern’s.

We recommend making reservations well in advance of your visit and we accept reservations only for the current month and the subsequent two months.

You can call reservations directly at 813.251.2421 or book them online. If you make online reservations, you will receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive any confirmation, please call the Steak House.

If your requested date or time is not available, you are welcome to check back periodically either online or by phone, however due to the volume of requests, we do not have a call back/waiting list.

*Please remember we have a strict business-casual to semi-formal dress code policy.

Jackets and ties are encouraged, but not officially required.  It is quite common to see formal wear since we are fortunate to be visited often for special occasion meals.

All Bern’s waiters are highly trained and very competent servers, however if you have a favorite, please make your request for this waiter when you make your reservation by phone. We will note it in your reservation and do our best to seat you at a table in their section. However, we cannot honor all requests due to scheduling and volume in the restaurant.
