We loved everything. Visiting the area and tried several different restaurants. Berrets was far and above the best one. Each dish was nicely presented and very tasty. All 4 of us agreed it was a great meal. Our server was knowledgable and helpful. Wine selection was also way above average. The dessert blueberry cheesecake was also a hit. We will be back!!
Some of the best seafood we have ever had! We highly recommend this restaurant.
We dine here every year when we go to Kingsmill for the LPGA tournament. It is consistently good. Excellent local oyster selection, interesting entree specials, fun cocktails. Meal prep is always on point. Never over/under cooked. Good for parties, families and couples. The restaurant backs up to a parking lot and is across the street from a larger lot that always has available parking. There is a nice outside bar area if you just want to chill out and grab some apps and drinks. Usually some live music on weekends.
Ordered fried green tomatoes. In the past it was real floured fried green tomatoes. Now all dressed up with cheese and sauce, etc. NOT GOOD. Leave the simpler things alone.
Service was great. Salad not so good.
Claw meat crab cakes were good. Shrimp with pork belly was excellent. Creme brulee did not especially need the accompanying whipped cream and strawberries, but I readily concede that others might enjoy this. Service was pleasant and accommodating.
The waitress delivered our salads to the wrong person, she never came back to check on us as we had empty water glasses and never asked if we wanted a second glass of wine. At check out she gave us the bill but never came back to pick it up. A second waiter finally checked us out and gave us some take out boxes. Food was great though!
Great evening in Tap Room. Oysters amazing! Destini was delightful
creative and outstanding seafood menu. Everything prepared and served exquisitely. Wish I lived closer! (we were on mini vacation)
We have eaten here many times and always enjoy our meal. They are always gluten free accommodating. Fish is fresh and yummy.
Excellent food & service - one of our favorite places!!!!!
Great atmosphere but food was no better than Red Lobster.
Nat was outstanding.
We were at the restaurant for Mother's Day. It was great. I had brunch and their take on eggs Benedict with crab cakes was incredible. The breakfast sausage was absolutely one of the best i have ever had. It tasted like a really smokey Kielbasa.
Food not very good. Service great
Great ambiance, great service, excellent food!! Our waiter Michael was wonderful!
The food and service was top notch.
Try the fish in parchment - excellent.
The chef has a cookbook that has great seafood receipes.
The waiter told us about the cookbook so we purchased one and the chef signed it.
The ART IS Amazing, and for purchase.
Conviently Across the street from Willam and Mary.
The food was delicious and the service was quite attentive. Our large group was very happy.
Pre Graduation dinner
If you love oysters and crab, you will enjoy this restaurant. Staff friendly, knowledgeable and efficient.
Visited Berret's for seafood while vacationing in Williamsburg. Husband and I shared soft-shell crab dinner and fish roasted in parchment, and a huge, excellent Caesar salad. Food was so good we returned the next night for same entrees plus 18 fabulous oysters (york and james). Both Dan and Taylor were excellent wait staff, and the outdoor dining experience just perfect. Highest ratings imaginable!
Excellent waiter (Don). Food was very good with large portions.
My husband and I come to Williamsburg frequently. Our meal at Berret's was exceptionally good on Monday evening. We're returning in December and will be sure to have dinner and/or lunch at Berret's.
The crab cakes and scallops were excellent. Convenient location to Williamsburg
Barrett’s was a wonderful little spot with great outdoor seating. The food was cooked perfectly and they had an awesome gluten free menu. Would highly recommend.
Red snapper + shrimp special was delicious.
Nice evening! Second night in! Weight staff very good. Food delish
Nice location, comfortable ambiance. Food was decent but not great. The service is very good. The place gets busy so I recommend a reservation even for brunch. I would go back.
I have been to Berret's several times over the years, and this restaurant always makes me want to return! I've been there with my children when they were 10 years old, and I've been there with adults, and the place has been perfect for both. The food is very good - interesting and innovative while being tasty and filling. It was good! We sat outside on a lovely evening and enjoyed ourselves very much!
We so appreciate Berrett's being able to accomodate my food allergies. Patio dining is our favorite place. I enjoyed my birthday crabcake dinner. Ashley was a great server. My birthday carrot cake dessert was big enough for four! The small bottle of champagne was a nice send off to my birthday celebration
Met out of state friends from the Midwest here for dinner as they wanted to experience fresh seafood, and we were very satisfied with our meals. All food and service was very good.
Wonderful food and service! Thank you
She crab soup still good, was better when served with special vial of sherry rather than have waiter drip it on from a large container. Food is good, but more costly than the last time I dined there
Delicious crab cakes for sure but everything was good!
We enjoyed three visits to Berret’s while on vacation. Everything was outstanding especially our server Christian. He made our dining experience exceptional.
In the past we liked everything at Berret's. This time three of our group of four found the food disappointing.
Nice place to rest feet for Williamsburg lunch. Would recommend to anyone visiting historic area.
We have been eating at Berret’s on every trip to Williamsburg since about 1989. We love knowing it’s there and are always assured of a welcome and tasty food.
Our server was the highlight of the night. We also enjoyed eating outdoors very much! thanks for making my birthday special :)
My friends and I enjoyed our get together with an excellent lunch and very delicious deserts.
