Good beach food

We visited Tybee for the first time and ate at Bernie's twice. Now, the first time was on the 3rd of July right before the fireworks and it was CRAZY! But, we had great service and although the wait for the food was slow, it was delicious. The second time we went back, it wasn't busy and we really... read more

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

We ate lunch here after spending hours on the beach. Service was quick and friendly. Air conditioning was delightful. Food was so tasty. Everyone enjoyed their choices. I had a shrimp salad, and it was delicious! Lots of perfectly cooked shrimp on mixed greens!

Went to Bernie's Oyster House for dinner on a Saturday evening, before 7 pm. A small, intimate place with maybe 6-8 tables and a bar section with a dozen stools. My wife had the shrimp basket, I ordered the shrimp po-boy. Our orders arrived in a timely manner, piping hot and well prepared. The shrimp basket was 15 good sized... More

We come to Tybee every year for vacation and discovered Bernies only a few years ago and we love their oysters- skip the "Mason Jar Bloodymary" as it was salty and at 9 bucks a pop not worth it but the oysters are the best and today was no different- big and steaming hot and a very generous helping for...

We went here on our last night on the island. Service was slow, especially since there was only about 4 other tables in the place taken. Our waitress was very pleasant and friendly. Food was good but a bit overpriced for what you get.

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
