“Very good oysters and clean”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

This was our first time dining at Bernie's. the restaurant was very clean and did not have that smokey smell some other places have. The service was knowledgeable about the menu and very friendly. The food was very good. Will definitely add this to our favorite restaurants on Tybee.

“Buckets of Oysters Here = Awesomeness!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Since April and May, we've been here 5 times. Every time we come, the oysters have a fresh & good taste to them! I haven't had a problem yet (from this location)! When it was hot, the doors were closed and I'm assuming the AC was turned on. I like the Margaritas on the Rocks w/ salt from here. Sometimes I take a couple to go and enjoy the beach! We also like the crab cakes. I don't really know about the rest of the food, but my hubby gets it and seems to enjoy it!

“So, so oysters”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

You'd think some effort would be made to serve quality raw oysters at an "Oyster House." Not here. Same old plain, skinny Florida oysters. No flavor, a real disappointment.
On the other hand, if you are looking for a cold beer in a most definite "island" establishment, you will like this place. It's right on the main drag, indoor and outdoor seating, worth a visit.

“Yum.”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Killer crab bisque, awesome hush puppies, super-fresh shrimp, and a kid-friendly waitress. Can't beat that.
