In 2011, the owner purchased a small restaurant and bar in Oreland. We closed the old restaurant for two months and re-opened it as Bernie's Pub. It was a hit from day one. We loved our Oreland family and for nearly four years they loved us right back. But Bernie's Pub, while nice, was small. The kitchen was tiny and seating was limited.

So one day, the owner saw a vacant site on the corner of Highland Avenue and Wharton Road in Glenside. To be totally honest, he passed it twice a day for 3 years before he had the bright idea that the site could be the new home for Bernie's. The site had a lot to offer...located in Glenside, the hometown of the owner; close to Jenkintown and the Old York Road corridor and a few blocks away from the Keswick Theater. So, it had it all!

A phone call to the land owner later that day and year of planning, refining and building later, you have what you see now...Bernie's Restaurant and Bar...a roughly 170-seat restaurant (including the patio seating).
