This more of a bar than a restaurant but the oysters and shrimp were excellent. Peggy is a super bartender and very friendly.

Tasty food in an unassuming atmosphere with mostly locals drinking. We had the low country boil with sausage and crawfish and a dozen oysters. Very tasty gulf oysters and clearly fresh. The boil was also tasty and our server even gave us a little intro on how to eat them since we were first timers!

We visit Savannah maybe twice a year. This is my go to place to get the crawfish/shrimp boil. Have tried others on River Street this place consistently delivers. The shrimp are plump and delicious, crawfish are meaty. Michelle and Peggy are amazing and even guided me to a homeless man with who I gave a meal to.

Wandering hungrily around River street after the Ghost tour, we found this place kind of by accident. The place is very casual, the kind of place you find on a beach. We had raw oysters, the fried shrimp basket, and the fried oyster basket. Everything was delicious. The staff was crazy busy, but very competent and friendly. We are just... More

We wondered in here after a failed visit to another restaurant. Our waiter made my day a million times better and was so helpful/funny! I had tater tots and chicken fingers (wasn't in the mood for adventurous after our earlier catastrophe) and they were great, especially the tots! Also had several drinks. The bourbon sours were great!

On Friday August 5, 2016, some of my family met early in Savannah, we went to Bernies and sat at the bar, we had blast sitting talking and eating oysters before the fireworks. Thanks to the great bartender, you made out night special.

My husband and I went. His raw oysters were good but my Lowcountry Boil was disappointing. The servers were very nice. It was a little warm inside. Cool five-bar atmosphere, but not the best dinner option.

The food here was epic! My husband had the fried oysters, which I tried as well and they were delicious. My son and I had the Phillie Steak and cheese and it was so good. The portions were large and the flavor was great. The seafood chowder was very good too. We also had the stuffed fried shrimp, yum.
