Our party of four stopped in for lunch. They serve decent fried seafood at reasonable prices and cheap beer.

I love steamed oysters. I could not wait to go to the beach to get steamed oysters! We could not get a bucket. Due to the hurricane they were limited in the amount of oysters they good get. The oysters and the service was great!

We had a late lunch at Bernie's . The oysters were excellent. The drinks were cold. The waitstaff was busy chatting with each other and not with the customers which was disappointing. We would have like suggestions for trip to Savannah or other activities on...More
