Homely and warm hospitality

You can count on friendly greeting and recommendations the moment you step into this restaurant serving comfort food in a relaxing, casual ambience devoid of pretences. In fact, the entire place screams "homely-ness" with a very authentic American touch.

It took some time for me to choose what to eat. On top of that, their menus contained lengthy, wordy descriptions and no pictures, therefore I had to use my imagination when reading the fine prints. It would be good for them to have a less-wordy menu with some photographs for reference.

We started the meal with the Gumbo (soup) consisting of sausage slices, chicken and lots of black pepper. I have heard of it but never tried it, so when I saw this restaurant serving it, I knew I had to have it. The first spoonful was a piping hot, rich, thick mouthful of spicy goodness - yes, the peppery taste was redolent. The few grains of tiny white rice mixed in added a touch of texture to the delicious soup dish.

For mains, we had burgers. The Beau had the Big Bern's Burger with Cheese - thankful that it was not a humongous American serving. This is a rather thick burger consisting of a minced-meat patty, lettuce, tomato slices, onion strips and thick layer of melted cheese atop, served between burger bread of course. The first few bites were delicious, especially the heavily-flavored beef patty clasped with crispy vegetables. However, the patty was very salty, I had to consume lots of water and munch on bread / vegetables to neutralize the taste.

Value for money

Happen to chance upon this restaurant when I was running errands nearby. There is only 2 - 3 table occupied when I went there for lunch around 12PM.

I was seated at a corner next to their kitchen. The menu is interesting with the history but lengthy in words, you can take your time to read if you have the time.

I ordered a 1/2 portion Fish & Chip Set Lunch and it only cost me $8.60(with Svc Charge). The restaurant does offer 1/2 portion set meal for small eater. It comes with soup and drinks, and they are quite generous with their serving.

I have to mention their service staff. Their service staff is real good. They will give you suggestion and always with a smile on their face, i like their working attitude. Definitely will visit again!!!

Big Berns's - cosy cafe

Hightea today at The Landing Point. We selected our teas while browsing the menus, wondering what to drink and eat, excited for our high tea session to kick start.  The seats were very comfortable, no doubt - vintage, cushy couches and soft piano music floated through the air melodiously, setting the perfect ambience for catching up and lazing around on a hot, bright Sunday afternoon. We were also offered the magnificent views of Marina Bay Sands area, so while the mouth feasted, so did the eyes.   The ala carte buffet-concept high tea goodies were served to us on a three-tiered tray. The drinks menu consisted of a rather wide assortment of TWG teas, coffees and other beverages.  As for the buffet items, there were mouth-watering savoury bites and sweetly-sensational pastries, all available for more helpings when the service crew walks about with their refill trays.   On the top tier, stacked neatly, are two each of Caramel-sea salt Chocolate Tarts and Creme Brulee Tarts in Chocolate Crusts.    The Caramel-sea salt Chocolate Tartlets were rich, thick and an exotic blend of sweet-salty taste - I loved the sticky bittersweetness of the chocolate lava within a solid chocolatey crust.   The Creme Brulee Tartlets consisted of the same solid chocolatey crusts and the golden center consisted of soft, butter-smooth egg-custard like filling and the aroma of vanilla-caramel blend. It was rather tasty if a tad sweet, but no worries, I have a sweet tooth.   For more detailed information and photos, do visit: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2014/02/afternoon-high-tea-at-landing-point.html

overpriced, dont waste your money

the steak is overpriced, does not feel fresh and not that great to justify the price, much better alternatives elsewhere.
