Went here with a fair sized group, but service was courteous and timely. Every one commented on the top rate quality of their meals. I had one of my favorites, Shrimp and Grits, which included Andouile sausage and was absolutely terrific!! Highly Recommend @

Bacon cheeseburger salad was the BEST salad I've ever experienced. My first visit to Bernies (after 20 years visiting the banks) but for sure not my last!!! Can't wait to get back this month (hope they're open). Nice restaurant, great wait staff, reasonably priced. Beparis2@hotmail

Second year visiting Barefoot Bernie's and there was no disappointment. We had two meals there and both were great. Our group members include people with a couple of different diet restrictions and Bernie's provides more options than just about any place at the beach. Service...More
