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.

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.

Whenever we come to Williamsburg, we always plan a lunch, dinner or snack on the patio at Berrets. Never had a bad meal!

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

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.

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.

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.
