“Hole in the wall with great food and drinks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Oysters can be cooked to rubber. They are DECIDEDLY not here !!! Fresh, succulent and cooked to perfection. The Bloody Mary was the infamous "best on the river", and they all say that. Great pickled okra! The bartender was nice and really knew her stuff. We will be back!

“Best Bloody Mary on River Street!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Just a little "hole in the wall" tavern, with the best Bloody Mary's on River Street, and the friendliest staff around. The owner, S.O.B. (Son of Bernie), made sure everything was to our liking and the service was great. Went out of their way to make our anniversary celebration special! And the food ain't bad either...our favorite, Low Country Boil.

“Good food, Okay service....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

When I came into Bernie's on a sunday evening the place was only about 60% full, but I waited about 15 minutes to get a beer and a menu. Once I was notices service was better, though still slow. the food however, was REALLY good. The steamed crawfish were perfectly cooked and seasoned, and the fried oyster were great too. Worth stopping in, just be patient when it comes to service...
