Bern’s Steak House is a steak house like no other. Even though their prices are expensive, they are worth every dollar. You also will get soup, salad, a loaded baked potato, onion rings, and the vegetable of the day with your meal. Unlike other restaurants, they age their beef for six to eight weeks instead of the standard two to three weeks, and they also grow their own organic vegetables.
If that was not enough, they make their own bread, salad dressings, sauces, marinades, and soups. Your steak is weighed after it is cooked, so you get more steak than at other restaurants because they weigh them prior to being cooked. Along with all of this great stuff, they have the largest wine collection in America and a separate dessert room. If you are on a gluten-free diet, they have dishes on the menu that you can eat. Be forewarned, to eat in one of the dining rooms instead of the lounge, you need to dress business casual to formal. If you wear jeans, t-shirts, flip-flops, or tennis shoes, you will eat in the lounge. They have a tour you can go on as well and you can end your dinner or tour by becoming engaged.

After your proposal, you and your fiance can get married in their beautiful ballroom. The ballroom has beautiful views, a lot of space, a built-in bar, a full-service event kitchen, audio/visual capabilities, and additional space for private parties.
Tampa Bay or St. Petersburg has beautiful beaches to visit and walk on. Your professional driver can take you and your fiance to the beach. It is very romantic and night, especially when the sun goes down. Depending on where you pop the question, there are a few places that could make it a bit more interesting. The beachfront at the Grand Plaza Hotel, and its beach bar, Bongos, almost always have weddings on Friday, Saturday, and Sundays this time of year around sunset. They have a pair of palm trees that kind of make up the altars, one set facing southwest, the other northwest so guests can choose the direction. Anyway, you could enjoy a drink on the beach, watch a wedding, let the wedding disperse and then go walk down the aisle and propose while it’s all still decorated.
Another option is the wedding gazebo at the Tradewinds; you can get to it from the beach even if you’re not a guest.
The holidays are quickly approaching, and not only will a limo make this a night to remember the location can make all the difference.
