We were there on a very slow Thursday evening. Our service was excellent of course as our bartender/server had nothing going on. My wife had the crabcakes and she's still talking about them. She loved them. I had fried oysters. Oysters are outside of my safety zone but I thought I'd give them... read more

My husband decided several months ago that he really liked oysters raw or steamed. Bernie's had a sign on sidewalk - bucket of oysters for $15. That's all it took! I should mention that he has never shucked an oyster before. He was struggling with opening them. The waitress came over and helped him open all of the . They... More

We had been to Bernie's on the river in Savannah, GA for oysters on the half shell and were treated to some of the best raw oysters ever. They were Blue Point oysters with tangy flavorful cocktail sauce, so when we saw Bernie's on Tybee Island we decided to stop in for dinner. It was even better than the river... More

My husband and I were at Bernie's on Saturday and we had the time of our life.... We had ordered a bucket of raw oysters and even though it was packed the bartender, Chad, had showed us how to shuck them and he was a show in himself.. Funny and entertaining.... Would recommend this place to anyone

We went during a visit for the Pirate's Festival. I get that they were busy. But when three tables sat down after us and ate and left, before we even got our food, we started to be concerned. The food was cold when it came out, we never got drinks we ordered. And when part of our order was not... More

Bernie's is oyster heaven: outdoor seating, a live band on the weekends, Bloody Marys in Mason jars, great wings, delectable hushpuppies, yummy nachos, and the occasional bucket-of-oysters-and-pitcher-of-beer-for-$25 special. Located on Tybrsia a few steps from the pier, it's the perfect place to load up on lunch between dips in the ocean.

The bloody marys are awesome and so is the steamed shrimp. One of the best hamburgers and fries I've had.

Was wanting some oysters on the half shell so we tried here. They had a special going for 25$, a pitcher of bud lite or yuengling and a bucket of you shuck em oysters. I had never shucked my own but the waitress showed me how and after a few it was easy. I wondered how many oysters I would... More
