Very good Bloody Mary's

A cute little bar along the river, known for its Bloody Mary's, which are very good. A nice spot to stop for a drink and a snack while wandering along River Street.

What a great find! We got local oysters on the half shell and they were amazing. I got the fried fish, grouper, basket with hush puppies and fries - huge platter. The hush puppies had corn in them - couldn't stop eating them. My friend got the fried oyster basket - really good, not overly breaded. And again a huge... More

My mom, daughter, and I ate here for lunch. We ordered the shrimp low country boil. It was delicious! The shrimp, potatoes, and corn were delicious. We weren't crazy about the sausage (and I usually like that). The service was good. It is a dark place that has a bar type atmosphere. It wasn't my favorite as far as decor,... More

Two of us had the low county boil with shrimp and crawfish - excellent, fresh, so inexpensive! Neither of us could finish. Oysters were fresh. Wendy, our server was excellent.

While visiting River Street, we stopped in several restaurants but chose Spanky's, and are glad we did. Cheryl was our server, and she took very good care of us. Noticing we were from out of town, she guided us through the menu, made suggestions, and the meal was great.

Went here on a Friday afternoon after reading online reviews. I saw a picture of the low country boil and decided to order it with shrimp and craw fish mix and was not disappointed. Our waitress was very attentive and kind. Walked in and sat ourselves. Also had the seafood chowder which was good. Good prices as well.

Small with poor acoustics is the only criticism of this seafood restaurant. The food specialty is seafood and you can order it any way you choose: broiled, boiled, blackened...The prices are good, the seafood fresh and the waitresses helpful. When a mistake was made on one of our dinners, the waitress was extremely accommodating. Crawfish, oysters, shrimp are all tasty.... More

This is truly a Bar setting. Don't be fooled by the environment. The Oysters are wonderful, and we have been going back every year we are there.

Bernies is a cool little oyster bar located in the heart of River St. I was craving some raw oysters on the 1/2 shell and a cold beer. They delivered on both! Great casual place with good food.

A dive atmosphere with a great Philly cheese steak. We only wanted a sandwich since we had had a big lunch, so this turned out to be a good choice. The price was reasonable considering the tourist area it's located in. If you're coming with children under 21, be aware that at 10 p.m. it's for those 21 +.
