  • How do I make reservations at Bern's?
    We recommend making reservations well in advance of your visit and have now gone to a rolling 60 day availability for booking.  You can call reservations directly at 813.251.2421 or book them online under “make a reservation”. 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 under the “make a reservation” tab or by phone, however due to the volume of requests, we do not have a call back/waiting list.

    If you have any changes to an existing reservation, please call the restaurant at 813-251-2421 for assistance.  Unfortunately due to the volume of emails, we are unable to assist with reservation requests and changes at our contact email.

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

    ~Bern’s Steak House does not condone the selling of our reservations and will never offer reservations that are available to book outside of our direct booking platforms via Open Table through our website or by phone.
