Yum! So so so good! We had the low country boil, shrimp tacos, stuffed shrimp and hushpuppies. Delicious. Awesome po boy sauce. All good.

There were multiple choices of fresh oysters and we tried a couple of each. They were all fabulous. Our server was very helpful and took very good care of us.

Bernie's is the greatest for a relaxed casual meal. The food is marvelous! With all of the restaurants on River Street, we found this one to be one of the friendliest.

Nice bar to come to for a couple of pints. No frills by the river. Good service. Clean and cool beer

The Viking Woman bartender was horrible. Tip 0.00. Oysters were good. Need some oysters forks here. Served with a plastic knife and lemons so small they were lemons for the tea.

Stopped by here with coworkers on a business trip. Agree with other reviews. This is a hole in the wall on River St, but if you want good reasonably priced food and drinks, this is a good place. No frills, small, but great.

My Place to go on River Street for Buckets of Oysters, Cold Beer, and Fun! Service is always Great! Place can be packed during tourist season If you like Fresh Seafood, don't have to have a great view, Bernie's is your "Huckleberry!" Enjoy, Chef Gary!

Oyster's were fresh and amazingly delicious. Must go to place for oysters. We ordered 3 dozen oyster's, we had to shuck them ourselves. It was our first time doing that and it was a lot of fun and the staff was very helpful and friendly.
