Drinks were over priced and wasn't that great. They stopped serving food at 10 so we didnt get any food....thought the clock just struck 10 they wouldn't take our order. Not coming back.

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!

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!
