Williamsburg and Hampton Roads Restaurants

Berret's Restaurant and Taphouse Grill

  • Seafood

Fodor's Review

One of the most reliable seafood spots around, Berret's is in Merchants Square. Upscale but casual, the restaurant lights crackling fires during colder months and opens up its pleasant outdoor patio when it's warm. Entrées and appetizers employ fresh Chesapeake Bay seafood. It's usually a sure bet to try any of the nightly specials of fresh fish, which often include perfectly prepared flounder. The she-crab soup, a house favorite, blends crabmeat, cream, and crab roe with just a hint of sherry. Virginia wines and beers are featured.

A Highlight in Williamsburg

Berret's has to be my favorite restaurant in Williamsburg. Excellent drinks in bar, along with appetizers. Dining area is very quaint, and comfortable. Food is excellent, and prepared with a flair not found in other retaurants. When in Williamsburg, do yourself a favor and eat at Berret's.
