Berret's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
My lovely wife and I dined at Berret's while in Williamsburg to celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary, something we have done several times before, and just as before, our dinner was WONDERFUL from start to finish. My wife had the crab cakes, which she characterized as "yummy" (her highest complement). I had the Country Brown Sugar & Bourbon-Crusted Mahi-Mahi Fillet with goat cheese-bacon grits, asparagus, and bacon-onion marmalade, which I have to say may be the best seafood dish ever! Desserts (bread pudding for her and ultimate brownie - to die for! - for me) were equally superb, and we were even presented a small bottle of champagne for our anniversary. Our server was terrific, and the ambiance of the indoor back room was very pleasant. All in all a wonderful evening. Many thanks to Berret's for continuing to make our anniversary special for us! See you again next time we are in Williamsburg!
Celebrating our anniversary with my family was delightful here at Berrets. They even gave us a small bottle of champagne. The staff was stellar. It was quiet so we could talk and relax. I think I have made a new find. Oh, and they give you 10% off of your next visit.
Excellent meal for me and my family. I had an entree that would stack up to any fine dining restaurant while my kids loved their meals. I would go back with either adult friends or my family in a heartbeat. Restaurant had a great vibe with an energetic wait staff as well
Berret's Seafood is located near "Confusion Corner" in the Burg and has ample parking. My dinner reservation was for 7:00 PM. Despite the busy hour, my guest and I were seated within five minutes. The waiter, Joshua, was extremely attentive and offered great suggestions for cocktails and the meal. The Berret Bloody Mary was spicy and outstanding. For dinner, I had the soft shell crab special and my guest had shrimp two ways. Both meals were prepared and presented perfectly, and accompanied by excellent side dishes. The local chardonnay (made in Williamsburg, VA) was superb and defied my expectations. Unfortunately, I had no room for dessert, although they appeared enticing. I will surely dine at Berret's Seafood on my next visit to the Colonial Capital and also will remember to save room for dessert! This restaurant is truly a tidewater Virginia gem...
We had a very grand and amazing meal tonight at Barrett's. the meal was delicious... the wine was delectable...dessert was fabulous. I recommend this place to anyone who craves a restaurant who can pay attention to detail. The big surprise was when we mentioned it was our anniversary, they gave us a small present---champagne bottle!! Who does this??? Berrett's does!! Amazing!!
We enjoyed family dinner here. We dined outside and the weather was perfect. We were able to enjoy the live music, a bit removed, so it provided a nice background for conversation. The food was well-prepared and presented and most importantly: delicious! Our server was attentive but not intrusive. It was a wonderful experience.
My boyfriend and I were at the beach for our one year of dating. We do not at all regret choosing this restaurant for our last because we enjoyed our delicious seafood! The music, service, food, and company was spectacular! Hope to back again in the future!
Overall, excellent food and very attentive service that was helpful in choosing dishes. We enjoyed appetizers of oysters on half shell and green fried tomatoes that were great. For dinner, I had the mahi mahi that was very tasty, though a lot of food; it was shared by the table. Others at our table had the parchment paper dish and Blue plate, all of which were said to be excellent. We all split a cheesecake dessert that was very tasty. Sat inside due to long wait for outside table, but was still very nice and not too loud. Would recommend for great seafood and a decent price considering the location.
Zero wait time for table. Oysters were exceptional. Large wine list. Outdoor seating is great on nice nights Was able to accommodate large parties. Child friendly. Easy walk to colonial Williamsburg. Would definitely go back to this place. Everything was great!
This was a terrific find during 4th of July celebrations. The drink of the day was AMAZING! The food was fabulous!! I had the mahi with brown sugar--soooo good!! And that is coming from someone who lives in Hawaii and has mahi all the time!! The deserts were fantastic also. Granddaughter had the brownie--which was more like a dark chocolate cream bar. I had the cobbler and it was also great. Would definitely recommend this restaurant!!
