The seafood was sensational and the service was good too. It isn't a family restaurant however the atmosphere was awesome.

We were staying in Tybee this weekend for the St. Patrick's Day festivities and were looking for a quick dinner place. Bernie's was one of the only restaurants that had an open table so we went in.

Seat yourself restaurant. Only one waitress working so ordering and delivering food was very slow, but she did her best. Ordered the fried oyster tacos with a side of french fries. The tacos come with lettuce and tomato. The tacos was stuffed with lots of fried oysters.
