We stopped in for some oysters and they were very good. This restaurant is really more a bar atmoshere with sports on the TV's, and they were very loud. If you want good oysters and don't mind the atmosphere - well worth it!

What a great place for our family to gather & enjoy a good meal! Loved the rustic brick & casual atmosphere & I can't say enough about the hospitable service. The food was outstanding and plentiful! I wish we lived closer, I'd make this a regular favorite.

Very rude, we were 5 people and I have a walker, we sat down on a table for four and accommodated myself at the head of the table, and was told very rudely that I couldn't do that so I asked the guy where could we sit and he did not answer just stood there, so we left. Apparently they... More

We have been here a couple times. If you like seafood this is the place to go. My wife tried crawfish for the first time here and loved them. They have a large selection there. We will definitely go back there when we get a chance for sure!! Awesome!!

On our first trip to Savannah we wanted to find fresh seafood on River St. We didn't want fine dining or pay a fortune. We found Bernie's. Small, locals type bar and restaurant. We ordered peel and eat shrimp and fried oysters. Shrimp were delicious and the oysters were large and lightly fried. Perfect. The hush puppies had some corn... More

Another review for Bernie's. The service is always good, the beer is cold and the raw oysters are cold, sweet and salty. Yumm! Never fails to please us and don't forget to try the fried oyster tacos! They are great!

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!
