Good Seafood

Don't be fooled by the bar atmosphere at Bernie's on River Street, the kitchen might be small but the food is large! We enjoyed the raw oysters and the Low Country Boil, both were worth it! The oysters were fresh shucked, salty, and mighty tasty. The Low Country Boil included our selection... read more

Atmosphere was fine. The restaurant looks like a hole in the wall but it is fine. Waitress was punctual. Classic rock was playing. Kids can eat here up until 10:00 pm. Food...I had the fries with chili & cheese and a piece of fish. They use a white cheese and not nacho cheese. The food was good. No real complaints.... More

Food and Service was OK. Cool place to stop and have an adult beverage on a hot day along River Street. Get the Bloody Mary!!!

It doesn't look like much, but Bernie's serves good seafood. The oysters were fresh and cold. The waitress was attentive. The place looks right out on the waterfront. The crayfish or craw dads were pretty good. Don't be put off by the dive-bar look of the place. The folks are nice and the food is great.

it is the perfect place to end a night on the river. They are down to earth and have an odd clientele of locals to entertain us tourist. I saw the most interesting tattoo of a USC Gamecock on an older gentleman's lower back one night. He was eager to share it with those of us who were there for... More

Fun atmosphere and great location on the river. The fish po' boy was delicious and the Moon River beer really hit the spot after a hot day walking around Savannah. Stop in and enjoy!

We had dinner at Bernie's on a Wednesday night. We were looking for a casual place on the river (since we had kids with us). The server was fantastic and very attentive. The food was great- I had fish and chips and the rest of my family had chicken fingers. Perfect place to relax and have a beer as well.... More

We went there for lunch yesterday and I think it was ok. Not bad, not out of this world good. I got the low country boil and there was nothing spectacular about it. Actually it needed some seasoning. My husband got the fish fingers which were a lot better than my shrimp in the boil. The draft bud light was... More

This is a good place to have some beers and a bucket of oysters. The staff was friendly and the prices were reasonable.
