    Honestly the best meal I've eaten in a long time. The oyster sampler was outstanding, as well as the fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese. My server, Channing, was superb, very good!! Food is super

    Great place to get seafood. Outdoor bar and seating is great on a lovely evening in Williamsburg. Our server was very attentive and helpful with information. Recommend reservations on busy weekends.

    Food delicious as always but service a bit slower than in past. May have been short staffed. We love Berret's though and will be back next time we are in town.

    The Pecan Crusted Salmon with Shrimp and the Tuna Steak with Crab Cake were superb! Wonderful presentation! Berret’s never disappoints. Our go-to favorite for a special dinner in a great location.

    Located in a very cute area of Williamsburg. Attentive service and nice ambience. But the food was very disappointing. Pecan crusted salmon lacked flavor. Grilled shrimp on both orders was undercooked. My sister was disappointed with the fried grouper. We agreed the grits were the best part of the meal.

    Outstanding Service by Server Christian. Excellent Food with a wide variety of selections available. Soups, Salads, Oysters are all very good. Good Atmosphere. Easy to make reservations by OpenTable. Highly recommendations because of popularity. Music by performers outside on patio were fun to watch and listen to. Look forward to returning for 10th visit.

    Paul seated us at a boot by the window that we preferred. Watson our waiter was attentive and took amazing care of us. The food was delicious (come hungry). Great wine and beer selection. If you come to Williamsburg and don’t visit Berret’s, you’re missing an important part of the experience. I believe they’ve been a local landmark since the mid 1980’s.

    Berret’s is well worth the 1.5 hour drive! We went last night to celebrate my husbands 70th Birthday. As always, the service was exceptional and the bartenders made our cocktails to perfection! The She Crab soup is to die for and my husband always looks forward to the Oyster Rockefeller. The shrimp on my salad were perfect as was my husbands surf and turf.

    Great place for dinner, especially for a special occasion. That’s why we were there…..location is great, parking is good if you go early enough. It is pricey, so be prepared!
