    We find it odd that so many locals do not come to Berrets! We love it! Usually walk down sit outside with the dog for either the music and a cocktail or wait for dinner. Lunches we usually eat at the outside counters. This time with reservations inside - it was a lovely evening! Our server was there only about 60 days and was excellent. He was working hard, extremely friendly and attentive. Husband Loved the duck and I loved my crab cake! The green goddess dressing is the best anywhere!

    We dined at Berretts on Thursday night and were delighted from start to finish. Our waiter, Mark, ensured we had everything we needed and was incredibly personable, adding a warm touch to our dining experience. I ordered the "Red, White, and Blue," a delightful trio featuring salmon, crab cake, and scallops, accompanied by creamy rice and grits. My husband opted for the special, which included redfish and fried shrimp. To begin with, we were served bread while we waited, and it did not disappoint. The salmon was flavorful and paired perfectly with tartar sauce, creating an impeccable bite each time. The crab cake was fresh, lightly breaded, and truly delectable. The scallops were cooked to perfection, tender and bursting with flavor. The redfish from my husband’s plate was light and tasty, with just the right amount of bread crumbs to enhance its delicate flavor. The fried shrimp were tender and delicately breaded, offering a perfect crunch with each bite. We were seated promptly at our reservation time, and the entire dining experience at Berretts was flawless. From the attentive service to the exquisite food, our evening was truly memorable. We highly recommend Berretts for an exceptional dining experience.

    This busy, popular place is in a great location near Colonial Williamsburg. The neighborhood is a nice place for a pre- or post-dinner stroll. The wait staff was good, but the food we had was just okay. Salmon was well-cooked, but scallops were meh and the crab cake was really sub-par. Not sure exactly what the cause was but they seem to have diluted the crabmeat (no discernible lumps) with a lot of wet stuff — mayo maybe? — creating a soft cake with a mushy texture. One of the most disappointing crab cakes I’ve been served. Bottom line: The atmosphere is fun, and the service is attentive, but the cooking is just so-so.

    Sunday brunch - I ordered the poached eggs which were tasty except the eggs were hard boiled instead of soft and runny. My husband ordered the salmon dish and the salmon was hard and over cooked. Our wait person was good, very personable and prompt. Overall, it was a sad and average meal - $75 was an expensive breakfast for what we ate. We have been there before and had decent meals, if not, we would probably never return based on this meal.

    Always enjoy visiting Berret's Restaurant. Staff is always great. Special thanks for assistance when we were unavoidably late (we called to advise of late arriving flight of our guests.) Special thanks to Bryan. Hard working and always friendly. A real asset for the restaurant.

    When we had gone to put our names in person 7:00pm they said they didn’t have any more for indoors, and it would be a 30min wait for Outdoor seating. Logged in online and snatched the 7:45 appointment for inside / standard seating…We outsmarted the “main” server and he still called the phone number registered for the outdoor reservation. Aside from this interesting initial interaction, service and food were great
