Eat your fill of island-fresh oysters.
Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, with saltwater marshes and tributaries abound, Tybee Island is situated in a prime location for the freshest oysters in the region. Perfect for your V-Day lunch or dinner, Bernie’s Oyster House is a celebrated island eatery serving up flavorful oysters just the ways you like them: on the shell, fried or joined by fellow seafood favorites in a harmonious cornucopia.

Couple their famous seafood with their awesome bar, and you’ve got a thriving hotspot frequented by all the island locals you want to meet. Order a bucket of bivalves to share with that cutie at the bar, and shuck all night long!
