One of the oldest and best restaurants in Chicopee MA. It's a real train too. The staff have been there since I can remember. Friendly and laid back. There good is great. Big portions and huge flavor. The seafood platter, cod, shrimp and scallops served with coleslaw and your choice of starch, for$1 upcharge I get the augratin pototoes. Deliciously creamy. The cod is white and flaky with a little cracker topping. The sea scallops are nicely grilled and so are the shrimp. The fish and chips are fantastic.. Not that heavy fried batter but a corn meal encrusted enormous portion of moist white fish with hot French fries. The rice pudding is served warm, a great dessert to take home as well. Love this place. Extensive menu and great daily specials. You will find something to eat and thoroughly enjoy it all.

Everything it claims to be. Nostalgic dining car. Luxurious seats. Great food. Huge portions. Reasonable prices. Excellent prime rib (even the lunch portion filled my Viking husband). Happy customers and friendly staff. If I had brought my luggage, I would have stayed aboard. Popular place. Seats are limited and lines form fast. A must experience!

3.5 stars actually. Just tried this place for the first time and I couldn’t believe the portion sizes. Loved the atmosphere. Definitely ask to sit in the train. It really feels like you’re sitting in a real train. Service was fast and friendly. The prime rib is MASSIVE! I had the sampler app which was really good! Then I ordered their surf and turf which consisted of a large portion of fried clams and a piece of prime rib. My boyfriend and I split everything and still had a ton of leftovers to take home. App was great! My salad was great! My entree was average at best though. Not because of the quality of the food. My food was pretty cold. My mashed potatoes and prime rib tasted like they had been sitting out for a good 10-15 minutes before it touched my table, so that’s why I’m only giving it 4 stars instead of 5. Pretty disappointing to get a cold meal. I’ll be back to try again and if my food is actually hot I’ll be back to give a 5 star review!

This place was great! From the friendly service, and really great food - and I'm not even a meat eater (and as you can see from the reviews, if you like meat - this is the place to go). We saw that the portions were very very generous - and since we are just passing through the area and didn't have a place to put leftovers, we decided to split a swordfish & scallop dinner, with a side order or steak fries (I do wish there were a few more to share on the plate - they were excellent) and beets. The desserts - a chocolate/hazelnut cake was really tasty, and so was the unusual grape-nuts pudding (!). I only wish we had more time to go back and try out some of the other dishes - as the side order of the mac and cheese did look amazing.

If you love prime rib like I love prime rib Bernie's Dining Depot is the place to go! It is all about the seasoning and flavor. Yes you can go to another fast food restaurant and get prime rib but it usually it has no flavor, like it was put in a microwave. Bernie's has flavor in every bite. I believe all of their food is home made like mom's home cooking, yummy!
