The place to go for oysters

Hubby got oysters on the half shell and I got fried oyster tacos. Both were good/ It is a popular place to go for oysters. It is a kind of grimy looking hole in the wall on River St. so if you are squeamish about pristine surroundings, you might not like it. the service was prompt and cheerful.

Given the choice of great restaurants on the river, this place did not measure up. Fried shrimp and seafood chowder tasted like microwave food. Would not return to this place.

I was in Savannah 2 weeks ago for a Bachelorette weekend, and I am still dreaming about that incredible Bloody Mary we had at Bernie's! Seriously -- trek down the steps and head to Bernie's. You won't regret it!

On a very rainy day in Savannah, this place was a wonderful find if you're looking for oysters. It was also recommended to us by one of the local shop keepers along the River Street area.
