Been to Bernie's at least a dozen times over the years. Visited just days ago after he recently re-built after Hurricane Matthew destroyed his place. The bar is twice the size but the food and ambience is just the same. Try the fresh conch salad....to die for! His bonfire on the beach Tuesday night was the biggest and best I've... More

Just emailed with Mrs. Bernie and they were destroyed by the storm but are now BACK UP AND RUNNING! Open for business from now until Christmas day! Same beach near the Island Seas. I think it's called Silver Beach? Be sure and pay them a visit for a beautiful view and some fabulous fresh seafood! Jody

Just walk down the beach to Bernie's and spend time by the fire and talk with fellow travelers. Enjoy the great food prepared right in front of you. Seating is not cushioned, but you should be up and mingling anyway. Its not 5 Star food, but its worth the price and a great social experience. We will be back!

Bernie is the man!! This is hidden gem in Freeport and worth the trouble to find😉 If you want the true experience of the Island this is the place to be,low price for amazing food, drinks and bonfire. Sit back an let the ocean take your cares away.

We did the beach bonfire. You CANNOT miss this. Hands down the best lobster tail I have ever eaten!!! The views were beautiful, and the whole set up was so relaxing. We found shells on the beach. And stayed for quite a while watching the sun go down. The price was too cheap.

Local guy cooks good lobster and fish right on the beach and it's reasonable priced. He has a bone fire every Wednesday night for the tourists.

We stayed in Freeport this year for two weeks and ate and drank at Bernie's almost everyday. His prices are phenomenal for what he offers compared to other restaurants. The proprietor of the establishment, Bernie is the nicest guy and the absolute best cook hands down. The man a genius with seafood, chicken, steak, you name it. Once a week... More
