We both had oyster dishes ( Hubby: PoBoy sandwich and I, Oyster Tacos. ) Both were quite good, even surprisingly so since this is a pub. A little on the pricey side for what you get but it sits on River Street where real estate is no doubt high. All other dining options in that area were much more expensive.... More

We stopped in for a drink and "snack" and were pleasantly surprised. Nice draft selection, including cider, which is harder to find. Raw oysters were delish and the platter we ordered was enough for three people. I'm a happy girl with some tater tots! Friendly staff and interesting people watching. We'll be back!

Dropped by for a late lunch and a few drinks. Neat atmosphere, good service and you get what you expect when you walk into the dimly lit joint. Decently priced beers, good oysters and not much bad to say about it. We will return to Bernie's on our next visit to River Street.

We just walked by and decided to give it a try. They are known for their Bloody Mary's. Best Bloody Mary I ever had! Good oysters too:)

loved Bernies! The bartenders and wait staff are friendly and helpful,the oysters and the Bloody Marys were amazing. The atmosphere is relaxed and the building like all of riverstreet is old with exposed brick and old ballast stones. We ate here twice during our stay in Savannah and loved it both times. I wasn't brave enough to buy one of... More

We popped in to Bernie's for a quick drink we a couple friends. The prices were good and the atmosphere was full of history. It was an enjoyable time for all. They gave us to go cups so we could continue on our travels down riverstreet. The view was great as well. The staff was nice and helpful when we... More

Food was awful. Had the crab bisque and got a shell in the first bite...and 8 other bites. Told waitress who wouldn't do anything about it. My husband had the seafood chowder which was thicker than ice cream. To be an oyster bar, they had almost no seafood selections on their menu. We paid and left to find a decent... More

We were looking for good steamed oysters and came across Bernie's Oyster House. This place was awesome. The Oysters were delicious and perfectly cooked. We also ordered the low country boil. The Shrimp was cooked to perfection and the crawfish were perfect too! The next night we ate at the Shrimp Factory ordering once again the low country boil. The... More

We come to Savannah at least once a year & have made it a tradition to visit Bernie's Oyster Bar & have always been very pleased with the food, service, etc. This visit was such a very different experience I just had to write about it. We ordered our usual; a bucket of oysters, that we shuck ourselves. That's half... More
