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.

Our quiet weekend getaway turned rowdy when the drunk couple was cussing and arguing in the corner. Kids was around and of course we happen to be the table beside them.

My husband and I were looking for a place open on Christmas Day and wondered by Bernies. The place was packed but there was a spot in the back outside area which was perfect. I ordered the steamed shrimp and French fries. The food was tasty and fresh. It's a relaxing atmosphere.

We had a group of 10 people. Food was average. Service was very good. Steamed oysters were very small.

Had a lovely lunch on Christmas Day. I have never seen staff work so hard. The bar tender was everywhere. She was pouring drinks, serving food and keeping everyone satisfied.

Great sports bar with typical bar atmosphere. All the food was good and we had fresh raw oysters which were fantastic! There is some outside seating too. If you are comfortable in a small bar atmosphere - this place is great.
