The restaurant is in a great location but the food was bland. the staff were friendly and the food presentation was nice but the taste was bland; not at all what I expected for a restaurant in that price range. In the future, I will look for another seafood restaurant.
One of our favorite restaurants. Service is always excellent. Food is well presented and
The waiter was fine so far as getting things out, etc, but he had the need to announce our food, interrupt us to ask if we needed something. We really wanted quieter service, as in we are conversing, we don’t need you to interrupt at the top of your voice.
Went for a birthday celebration and food was fantastic. Exceptional restaurant and we have eaten there numerous times. Always excellent and our “go to “place whenever we are in Williamsburg.
Classic Blue Plate Special & Salmon entrees were superb.
Loved eating here!! You can’t beat the oysters and the other meal options they have. Great location near Colonial Williamsburg. Large parking lot!
Location, decor, service and food were all perfect for casual dining. The house made fruit cobbler with vanilla ice cream was simply outstanding and the highlight of our dining experience!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday dinner at Berret's. The food was outstanding, the quantities more than adequate, and the service was superb. My husband had the rockfish and shrimp special, and I had the crabcakes; the crabcakes were a special treat for me because they were gluten free! We also enjoyed the roasted oysters and beverages at happy hour. Our server was very attentive, but never in the way. We are so glad to have discovered Berret's - we will definitely be back!
I love the fact that Berret's offers a coupon "in keeping with a 25 year tradition" when they used to support a fund raiser for high school scholarships. I also love the food (grits are amazing, as is the crab cake) and their new art work by Jeffro (Jeff Helm) makes a very fun ambience.
We really enjoyed the crab cakes, scallops & fruit cobbler.
Good choice of items on the menu and that night's specials. Service and food was outstanding!
We had a great dinner here with friendly service and out of the ordinary menu selections. One of the best meals we have experienced in a long time. We would highly recommend this place to anyone.
great oysters, good fresh seafood selection, generous portions, friendly service
Our waitress Becca did a great job with questions and service.
The General Manager is a great guy and real asset to this business. He took time to be certain everything was REALLY ok and made helpful suggestions.
Always have an excellent meal here. The menu is creative and enticing.
Salad had a hair in it, crab cakes didn't have a lot of taste, food took a long time and was expensive for what we got. Nice server and got to dine outside at a great location on a lovely evening though.
We all 6 felt the quality of the food had diminished since the last time we were there.
Very heavy food. Copious amounts of butter on everything. Lots of hot mayonnaise binding together seafood. Even the lighter sounding fare was really heavy. Waiter was very nice.
Great service and food as always. Cannot wait to return to Williamsburg and Berret's!
I definitley recommend Berrets! 10/10 experience. Try it out
Wife and I live in Williamsburg, enjoy visiting every restaurant in the area. Barrert’s has some of the best seafood we’ve ever tasted and friendly staff to make you feel welcomed. Would definitely recommend to others to visit.
The waiter was very personable and helpful with the menu. Service was quick and the food was delicious. We will definitely return.
Same good food, lack of all inclusive salads with seafood or chicken. Quantity of food value lacking.
Whenever we come to Williamsburg, we always plan a lunch, dinner or snack on the patio at Berrets. Never had a bad meal!
A very nice experience. Service was excellent and the food was very good. We will be back!
We arrived before our reservation and yet seated promptly. We asked for a gluten-free menu and delighted with the many GF options. Our server went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable, well served and everything provided. Going back this Friday!!!
After spending an afternoon tasting the wines in the tasting room capped off a great day at the Winery with Dinner at the Café . Service was friendly , attentive without being over the top! The menu was creative from the Oysters which had great flavor but were a little heavy on the breading, Beef Wellington seasoned perfectly and cooked to perfection as was the Rack of Lamb. Overall dinner was we wanted it to be an early Valentine special experience definitely would return
Our friends drove up from Chesapeake to use a Save30 certificate and everything was great. They were glad they came.
Was curious when looking to make a reservation...Berret's was the only place we were able to reserve...all the other restaurants were booked for the night. Sadly, we now know why. Our food was simply bad. The She Crab soup was unrecognizable. The flounder special was tasteless...and the grilled shrimp had absolutely no flavor and were slightly undercooked...I couldn't even eat them. Wish I could give a better review...but we will never be returning.
Truly a Williamsburg jewel. I literally go there every time I’m in Williamsburg. Sometimes just for the happy hour and mussels. Sometimes for lunch and sometimes for dinner. The seafood is fresh and there are non seafood options too. Always great !!!! with a friendly staff. The outside patio is a great place to sit and people-watch when the weather is nice.
Overall was a very nice experience.
We wanted fresh seafood but all that was available was a bunch of fried options. Scallops and salmon were not fried but they were not memorable. Service was great. Husband had the flight of bourbon which was good. Outside patio looked nice when weather is warm. Too many others to try in Williamsburg. Will not return.
Second time dining here. The food is great and prices are very reasonable. This will be a regular date night place for me and my wife!
Raw oysters were excellent, especially York River oysters
We are locals and this is the best seafood restaurant in Williamsburg. Whenever we have guests Berret's is our first choice because if the fine dining and great service.It is also in the historic area so we can walk DOG street afterwards.
Berrets is continuing a "25 year tradition" by giving a coupon for $15 off which it started as a cooperative effort with some parents in our town who sold coupon books to make college scholarships happen for students at Lafayette High School. That was back when we only had 1 high school! I appreciate Brian Maloney and his cheerful staff.
We loved the food. Our waitress Emily was outstanding. We enjoyed conversing with her and she suggested the Va Air and Space Museum in Hampton which we loved! And she’s an Eagles fan. Go Eagles!! Will definitely come back to Berret’s!
Our group had a nice lunch celebrating the close of Restaurant Week in Williamsburg. The crab cake sandwiches and the she-crab soup were amazing. Nice to sit by the fireplace on a chilly day. Good service by our server. A nice place for lunch.
4 of us had dinner, with 1 being an interview candidate and 2 dining at Berret’s for the first time. All loved our meals and service, and get it was the perfect place for our meet-up. While there was a large group seated next to us, there was no noise level issue, and in fact the well-minded kids in the group provided joyful entertainment.
