Your Typical Oyster Bar

Service was a little slow but very polite, it appeared she was the only one waiting tables and we were on "island time" and... read more

I had the oyster po boy, good but a little salty. My better half had the shrimp po boy and enjoyed it. The restaurant promotes their bloody marys and I had one virgin. It lived up to the promotion and I enjoyed it very much.

I brought a friend to Tybee Island for the Classic Muscle Car Show and we decided to try Bernies Oyster House because they had a nice outdoor area with umbrellas and it was a beautiful day. We had Tater Tots and Fried Oysters and they totally hit the spot. The staff was friendly and the service was speedy.

This was our first trip to Tybee so we landed at Bernies for lunch. The food was good and the service was decent. $32 for a burger w/fries and fried shrimp with 2 sodas.

This is a dive little place on Tybrisa Street right by the pier. Great location. The atmosphere is dark and bar like which is not bad. There is a deck out back that is nice and has a big tv for watching games. They have good beer specials and decent drink specials. Service was a bit slow and a bit... More

This is a good little place to eat. We were there on Christmas day and had oysters and beer and the owner was working alone he let the staff off.

The owner was most helpful in giving directions, very conversational,(as we were,) made excellent drinks, and the seafood was excellent, with a great breading, not really thick like some. Fried oysters especially good.
