I went here based on positive reviews. I wish that someone had warned me that all fried seafood is seasoned with smoke flavoring. I do not enjoy smoked anything, liquid smoke flavoring, etc. Even the tater tots (child in group) tasted like smoke. I smothered my fried shrimp in ketchup and could only eat about half before throwing in the... More

Our party of 10 arrived at 7pm or as on Sat July 19. We saw a table being cleared u and wanted to grab it so gathered nearby. A waitress told us to stand back while they cleaned. Then she told us parties of 10 would be on one tab. When that didn't scare us she said it would be... More

We ate at this little hole in the wall on Saturday night after arriving into town. The place was packed and the staff seemed none too pleased with how busy they were. My wife isn't one to try seafood so she tried to order a quesadilla, the waiter replied with "are you kidding, you can't have that, our grill can't... More

Always go here for oysters! Great every time. Service is always great. Hamburgers are good, too. Outdoor seating is nice, fans keep it nice and cool.

We stopped for a late lunch and are so glad we did. My husband wanted oysters and since i don't like seafood, i ordered tots. The server pointed out that an oyster basket was a better value as coleslaw and hush puppies are included. Great call - appreciate the advice. The tots were good, the coleslaw truly delicious (i know... More

Bernie's is such a fantastic find! We stayed on the beach during our honeymoon a few years ago and decided to walk around, looking at the local eateries. We found Bernie's and we make a point to stop in every year. The food is so amazing, you get a lot for your money, and the prices aren't too bad. I... More

Stopped and ate lunch while waiting on our rental to be ready for us. Waitress was very good. Food was good with the exception of the coleslaw. We didn't care for it at all,

Stopped in with the wife and daughter last night, looking for oysters. At first glance I thought it was a dive bar, perfect for 21 year olds. That may be the case but they had great oysters and shrimp. This ended up being a perfect spot to have some "messy" seafood. Minimal wait, good food, cold beer. I Highly recommend.

This restaurant, recently purchased by locals has another location on River Street in Atlanta. Your best bet for live oysters, if the oysters were chilled on ice and washed (the exterior shells), they would be tastier. That said, the oysters, usually from the Gulf, are meaty and succulent. Fried shrimp is delicious and hush puppies are delightful. The menu is... More
