Stopped by for some raw boys and waited just a few minutes. WOW that was fast! The oysters were no bigger than a half dollar. I have been here many times and this time it was very disappointing. When the server came by and said " how were they", I commented "tiny" and she brought out a few more. That's... More

The staff are always friendly here. We stopped by for raw oysters but not knowing they were out of season (duly noted). Had a po boy and it was delicious. Great place for socializing too.

So, the servers were extremely nice and the beer was very cold and those were the best things about my dining experience at Bernie's. Bernie's was the first food stop I made during my first (and only!) trip to Tybee Island and it was so disappointing. I frequent beach towns and coastal cities often and one of my favorite things...

We stopped in here for Lunch having no idea what to expect. The service was very good, the food was even better, My wife ordered a BLT, after seeing it, I wished I had as well. My Hamburger was good but that BLT was outstanding. The amount of thick sliced bacon was WAY above average.

A must stop on Tybee!!! The bartender Renee is the absolute best!!! She is very attentive and makes awesome Moscow Mules. Great selection of beers and wines and did I mention the food??? Succulent oysters and the hottest horseradish around. Everyone was super friendly. I would highly recommend this place. It is a top notch place and a must stop... More
