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 +.

The waterfront in Savannah is an enjoyable place to sit and watch the container ships pass through on the water. It seemed that it was ship after ship. Doing this in the heat, however, develops a thirst. There are a number of bars and restaurants along the waterfront, but as I looked behind me there was Bernie’s Oysters. I walked... More

Stopped in for a late lunch one afternoon and the place was packed. We got the last table available. We ordered a couple of beers and my wife ordered chicken quesadillas and I ordered Bernie's special sandwich which was stuffed with ham,turkey and cheese on a roll with a delicious dressing. Actually there are no negatives about this place. The... More

The best hole in the wall place you'll ever find !! If you want oysters this is the place to go. The old wives tale of not eating raw oysters in months without an R in it doesn't apply here and we enjoyed them on a 100 degree July day and they were large and delicious !! The wait staff... 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.
