From the road, this place is unimpressive. But when you walk back to be seated, the view! What a gem. The outside seating was ample. The tables were very clean, waitstaff was knowledgeable and efficient. The food was excellent. The seafood was very fresh. The seafood tacos were flavorful and made with very fresh ingredients. One of the best meals... More

5th time to Berts. Always go on Wednesday or Fridays after 4 pm for their all you can eat Fish, fries, slaw and dinner roll for $10.99. The fish is light and the best around. It is such a fun whimsical place with live music most days. Outside dining is the best during cooler weather. The outdoor patio is also... More

Fabulous white fish fish fry with fries and coleslaw! This is a great restaurant, eclectic in decor with a cool beachy vibe. Skip was the steel drum entertainment and rumor has it that he has an international following. He was also recently featured in Southern Living magazine. Bert's also has a nice gallery across the road. A great "must" stop... More

Saturday night dinner of fish and shrimp tacos. Sat on the dock for view and music. Steel drummer was great but crowd was unresponsive. Cold, ungrilled tortillas with 4 tiny pieces of flavorless fish hidden under a pile of shredded lettuce with sour cream and salsa in plastic cups on the side. Ugh! Good homemade chips; good service. Went to... More

Parking is a premium but we got seated fairly quickly. Steel drum music was nice as we sat on the deck. Food was good but not great, but the key lime pie was so good we took one home to have with some scotch. We had coconut shrimp, blackened grouper and chicken tacos. Nobody said we have to go back,...

Not what I expected but it was packed every night of our 10 days on the island. We got to go grouper sandwich and a reuben. The Reuben was unexpectedly good. Not your typical island fare the grouper was a little over cooked and on a huge bun. I did not like the home made Bert's chips. Wish we had... More

Bert's is still doing pretty well. Stopped in at about 9pm on a Friday (the Trip Advisor hours of person are wrong). Band was supposed to pay until 9:30, but was done at 9. Fairly good crowd for a rainy night. Lobster roll was good, but not fantastic. Grouper fingers were good, but smaller & different breading than last year.... More

The shrimp we had was great. The chips (not to be confused with fries)they came with and claim as wonderful were cold. The service was good and they had some live entertainment. Nice outdoor seating.

75 year oldtime Waterfront Restaurant and Bar with a Million Dollar view. Local seafood. Both local and national entertainment with no cover charge. Recommended by Southern Living, Coastal Living, Florida Travel & Life, Boston Globe, and American Airlines to mention a few. Quality food at reasonable prices. Great place to relax, enjoy the view and perhaps to see dolphins and/or manatees.
