“Great oysters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

My husband and I were at Bernie's on Saturday and we had the time of our life.... We had ordered a bucket of raw oysters and even though it was packed the bartender, Chad, had showed us how to shuck them and he was a show in himself.. Funny and entertaining.... Would recommend this place to anyone

“Poor management”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We went during a visit for the Pirate's Festival. I get that they were busy. But when three tables sat down after us and ate and left, before we even got our food, we started to be concerned. The food was cold when it came out, we never got drinks we ordered. And when part of our order was not ready we canceled it. Well 10 minutes later it arrives to the table and the waitress says it's on the house. Of course it was on the bill, when we tried to talk to the very rude and unprofessional manager, he treated us as if we had done something wrong. It's called "customer service" look it up...

“Our favorite dive on the planet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Bernie's is oyster heaven: outdoor seating, a live band on the weekends, Bloody Marys in Mason jars, great wings, delectable hushpuppies, yummy nachos, and the occasional bucket-of-oysters-and-pitcher-of-beer-for-$25 special. Located on Tybrsia a few steps from the pier, it's the perfect place to load up on lunch between dips in the ocean.

“shrimp delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

The bloody marys are awesome and so is the steamed shrimp. One of the best hamburgers and fries I've had.
