Berns Steak House was everything everybody said it was going to be. We were seated in the bronze room. Food was excellent and service was impeccable. Our party of five couples took the kitchen tour then the wine cellar tour. We were told that they are rated the number two Restraunt in the country for their steaks and rated number one in the country for having the largest wine cellar. There is 100,000 bottles of wine in the cellar of the restaurant and they bought a old warehouse across the street and totally redid the inside to hold 500,000 more bottles all climate controlled. Our group was totally impressed. I would go back for another special occasion.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

Even back in the 70s, their wine list was the size of an unabridged dictionary.

Glad you had a good time Gary. Bern's is one of the things I miss from when we lived in Tampa along with Manatee gun and archery club, cuban sandwiches and the 1905 salad from the Columbia restaurant.

There is a little hole-in-the-wall steakhouse in Thayer, Kansas by the name of Big Ed's Steakhouse. Best steaks I have ever eaten. I deer hunt close by in the winter and have to hit the steakhouse once or twice.

Hunt with your son today instead of hunting for him tomorrow.

Looked at their menu. Does indeed look good. I note they don't boil their steak in a bag so it can't be bad.

"When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace." -Jesus

Gen 49:24  But his [Joseph's] bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

1Sa 17:49  And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth. 

But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. -Jesus

"An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it." -Col. Jeff Cooper

Some will die in hot pursuit and fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain
