We all had seafood (raw oysters, fried oysters, and the low country boil and it was all good. Great for a good lunch while enjoying the... More

My wife and I hit Bernie's to get some great steamed oysters. We had eaten at Bernie's in years past while visiting Savannah and they never disappoint. We ordered a bucket and received some of the largest oysters I have ever seen! Delicious! The decor is nothing spectacular but it is what you would expect on a old timey wharf... More

My husband and I had breakfast here before we left Savannah. Early in the morning.....not many people out and about.....scenery was beautiful! Service was fast and courteous. Food was amazing! My husband had the sausage and grits bowl. I had eggs, sausage, and toast. Yummy! We definitely recommend this place!

We discovered the place and just loved it. Went back for a second meal and drinks. We were celebrating birthdays and it was a great fun place. Excellent buffalo shrimp!

We had a group that couldn't decide where to eat. Several wanted oysters so we wandered in to this restaurant. It was just perfect for a casual lunch. We all were able to order something we liked and they had the beverages everyone wanted.The food was real good for the price and the service was excellent. The restaurant was very... More

Service was excellent and the oysters were very good. This was the first of three resturants that night. We should have stayed there.

We had never shucked oysters before and thought it was something we needed to do and scratch off the bucket list. Peggy was the Bar Tender and very helpful with showing us how to do it and kept helping as we shucked and at oysters. She showed us a different way to season them than we had them in the... More

This local favorite is right on the river walk. The prices are perfect and the food is delicious! It's not fancy and you can enjoy a drink while slurping down some tasty oysters on the half shell! Lots of fun.
