Me and three other friends saw signs while ridding the Rock island trail through Dunlap. We got there 45 min. after closing but the owner had just walked out and offered to open up for icecream. I had cookies and cream yogurt. The others got shakes. We were offered to fill up our water bottles too. Great pit stop on the trail and 5 stars for great icecream!
Really a nice place for dunlap. I wouldn't give them credit for much food being homemade but having a local restaurant is a great think.

Just ok. Food is good, but not great. Staff was ok. Was there when it got a luttle busy, got food in reasonable time. Did take a bit long to get our drinks, but it wasn't horribly long. Heard they are known for their fried chicken, been to a couple placed in Peoria that were much better. Also tried the chicken pesto Flatbread pizza. Tasted great, liked the toppings, but the crust was more like a floppy store bought flat bread. Needed to be thinner and toasted longer. Did like the variety of foods on the menu. Something for everyone. I wouldn't recommend it to others, but I wouldn't turn people away either. Only big plus was the price. Had a couple beers and a meal, final bill seemed pretty cheap. I'd go back if friends/family wanted to meet there again.
Ate here recently, Food was very good, Service, I would say the need to do some hiring. This was a Saturday night and the hostess was answering the phone, seating people, setting tables and handling the cash register. Way to much on this poor girl, She was really stressing and letting everyone know it. There were 2 bus boys moving at a snails place to clean off tables. This place was busy and most tables were full but there were empty tables too, but people had to wait anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes to be seated. People were getting very upset. I don't even know how the bartender handled it. Poor guy couldn't even get glasses cleaned. I just think you need to get better organized. But will be back.
Bernardi's Pub at Lake of the Woods plaza is consistent with the other Bernardi's locations we have visited. Good food and clean, friendly atmosphere for family dining. My only complaint is that the meat sauce for the spaghetti smells and tastes exactly like canned Chef Boyardee. No kidding. Some people, however, swear by this meat sauce recipe. I, however, am not a fan. Other than the spaghetti, I've ordered the fried chicken (delicious), pork tenderloin sandwich (delicious), chicken wings (killer but only available at this location on Sundays) and today, best of all, the grilled shrimp po'boy. This sandwich is so freaking delicious: Cajun grilled jumbo shrimp, jalapeÃ±o bacon, onion, lettuce and tomato on a hoagie roll with a side of cucumber ranch dressing. It's served with Bernardi's signature homemade potato chips and typically sells for $11.95. Tuesdays are signature pub sandwich special day and you can get this and most others for $7. It's a steal. I'm a fan of Bernardi's despite the processed tasting sauce. Everything else is fantastic. Not sure I'll eat anything new here after that life changing po'boy.
