Bernie's was recommend to us by a Tybee local on our restaurant hopping weekend. The guys were on a mission to find the best oysters in Savannah. They had no complaints and raved about the oysters. They also tried the seafood soup and again, said it was yummy. I had the Phili cheese steak sandwich with tater tots! It was... More

My wife had a hankerin' for some steamed oysters and since we live just a few minutes drive from Tybee, Bernie's was our choice. A nice salad to start, followed by a bucket of steamed Apalachicola oysters with a side of hush puppies on the side made a nice meal. Struck up a conversation with a nearby table of tourists...

The oysters were huge & delicious! I got the $15 bucket of oysters! Great deal! This restaurant is located on Tybee's 16th St., very close to the ocean. After eating lunch we were able to walk right out the door to the ocean for a nice walk. I would highly recommend thsi restaurant to anyone who is an oyster enthusiast!... More

Food was good and prices were fair. It was nice place to go for lunch without spending a bunch of money.

We traveled to Tybee Island and spent 7 days during Christmas. We ate at Bernie's 3 times. If that doesn't tell you how good it is, nothing will. Great service, great food. Have the peel-n-eat shrimp platter or the oyster bucket. Yum!

We were on Tybee Island biking to watch the Tybee Polar Plunge on New Year's Day and we walked into Bernie's for lunch. The fried oysters and shrimp were awesome, the bloody Mary's quite good and the atmosphere was fun. There were a number of televisions showing different football games which made all the husbands in our group very happy!... More

We ate here for supper one of the nights of the week of Thanksgiving. It was a cheerful atmosphere since everything was decorated for Christmas. Our son had his obligatory oysters on the half shell--good, but very small. The rest of the bunch had shrimp, fish, etc. Good food.

I went there today with my husband for lunch. Very disappointing experience. First we had to wait for 15 min to be seated. No welcome, nothing, we were just ignored and the people in line behind us were actually seated before us. Once seated we had to wait for a long time to get drinks and the menu. We ordered... More

We spent Thanksgiving week enjoying all that Tybee had to offer. We rented bikes and pedaled every inch of the island. And we tried every single restaurant. This was, hands down, our favorite place. The staff was amazingly friendly on all 4 of our visits. Very personable and helpful people. They had the best oysters we found on our trip... More
