Best bartender in town! Ron was super friendly and efficient. He also knows tons about the history of Savannah- so our visit was not only enjoyable but also enlightening. Very glad we stopped in. Will most definitely be back again to see Ron!

great waitress and service but the steamed oysters were a joke, they looked like a box full of mussells, Russos is much smaller and so much better

Bernie's is always a great choice on River Street. Today we had lunch. Great food, perfect portions, and excellent price. Bernie's is always a safe choice when you aren't sure where to eat on River Street. They have awesome choices and great evening entertainment!
