food awesome......no greeting at all

Everytime we go to Tybee, we go to Bernie's. We thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere, and definitely the food......However, we have NEVER been greeted when we walk in the door....This could be very confusing for someone who has never eaten here...

The fish was fresh the fries frozen, the atmosphere low. They tried to tell me my service dog had to stay outside. We settled that fast. Tybee Island needs a little ed. on service animals but we'll work on that. The service was surly at best but it was basically a dive bar. Great salmon sandwich though.

A smaller place with a smaller staff but the food was we'll worth the stop. We all had a variety of menu items but the Bernie Special was the highlight . Generous portions of tots made us really happy as well.

We drove from Savannah to Tybee for dinner at Bernie's since it had pretty good reviews. We had 7 adults and one child. We went to sit at the table and were told everyone would be on one ticket. No Hello and Welcome or discussion about how long we were staying or how many checks (it would have been 3... More

I wanted raw oysters and a Bloody Mary. Outstanding on both points. They have their own recipe for the drink mix. The oysters were very fresh. Highly recommended.

My sister and I had a salad with fried oysters. It was great. We also enjoyed live music. I don't know the band's name. There was a drummer and a singer who played guitar. They were great. There was lots of audience participation.

Nice local restaurant. I actually ordered for pick up. I had the Shrimp basket with what was supposed to be tater tots but I got fries instead. The shrimp were very good and the batter used was perfection. I also had a crab cake and it was good. I also had the crab bisque but it was below my standards,... More
