From Our Customers

  • Love this place. It’s my hometown authentic place to simply chill. My service has always been attentive at every level. The beer selection is superb. The Old Bay wings are legend. The logo is so cute, who doesn’t love a slobbering happy Bernie? I love dragging friends here, they all love it too. Nice patrons, easy parking, sincere service.
    I am hitting patio on Memorial Day as they emerge from the pandemic. They earned my loyalty.

  • It’s so good see a local restaurant like this one still operating during covid-19! Thirsty Bernie has been one of my favorite restaurants in Arlington, VA hands down. The staff always treats you like family and goes out of their way to make sure each experience you have there is memorable but one of the main reasons I always find myself coming back here is because of the food! The hot bbq and old bay wings are delicious, especially when grilled! I also love how they have a variety of different burgers to choose from because it allows me to try something new each time I visit. If you’re in the area, definitely check them out! Keep it up Thirsty Bernie!!

  • All the food we ordered was very delicious, the TV setup for watching sports was excellent with 360 degree viewing around the room, and our host/server could not have been friendlier, even chatting us up at the end of our meal. This gem is worth the visit for the food alone (get the Bavarian Bites!), and that makes it all the more ideal a gathering place for watching a big game.

  • I absolutely love this place! My colleagues and I come here after a hard day/week and let our hair down. The people are so nice they make you feel like they’ve known you all your life even if it’s just your second visit. The food is delicious! The drinks are on point! The prices can’t be beat…especially during happy hour. It’s always good vibes when I go!

  • The best ! Feels like home! And the staff are ready to do anything for you. If staying in Arlington, start by going there and you have a place to go every day and night.

    Plus their selection of draft beer delivers to any beer snob.

    Thank you Bernies!

  • Thirsty Bernie is a fantastic spot to watch the game and grab a bit to eat. The menu provides a nice selection of typical sports bar food alongside the German cuisine. The new management has really turned this local bar and grill around and the staff are warm, welcoming and enthusiastic. I look forward to coming back and highly recommend this as your next place to grab a bite or a drink!
