great everytime

We eat here almost every time we visit Tybee. This time we got a bucket of oysters and the fried fish fingers. Both were amazing! The oysters seemed to go on forever and they tasted super fresh.

Maybe they were having a really bad day but it was the worst service we have ever had at any restaurant including the local McDonalds. It took an hour and twenty minutes to get our food after we placed our order (which consisted of burgers/po boys & fries). Not a hard meal to fix but it was busy so we... More

Our family decided to give Bernie's a try, since it was within walking distance of condo. Not much to look at appearance-wise but food was outstanding, and that's the reason we were there. Food was perfectly cooked and service was excellant. Large portions added to enjoyment. Carried a to-go order back for our daughter, which she enjoyed for two days.... More

We have visited the Bernie's in Savannah and when we found that they are also in Tybee we were so excited. Love to stop in for some oysters on the half shell and a couple of tequila oyster shooters. Comfortable, low-key atmosphere. Thanks again for a wonderful experience!

First if all, the service was the best and the food was perfect. My wife and I had the fried oysters but a guy next to me had the bucket of teamed oysters. I am here all week and I am going back for my bucket. The location was just off the beach close to the pier. It's a small... More

You can tell they shuck oysters and then keep them sitting around on trays in refrigerator until served. Less like legit oyster bar than standard seafood restaurant that serves oysters

we love the oysters here. We started with a dozen. Then we had 2 steamed shrimp dinners with corn and slaw. They were fresh and we couldn't finish all of the shrimp. One of us had the fish fingers and fries with hushpuppies. He loved the tartar sauce but wished they had malt vinegar. the Low country boil was good... More

This place is know for their oysters and their killer mason jar bloody Mary's, I have been here before and brought friends. The Bloody Mary came in a styrofoam cup which is not a big deal but it tasted horrible! So bitter from the over use of horseradish. You could see it floating in it. So much the Bloody Mary... More
