Berret's is a fine place to grab lunch or dinner. The service is great and the food even greater! Clam chowder is a definite, as are oysters on the half shell. I highly recommend this restaurant quietly tucked away in Colonial Williamsburg.

Berret's is a must stop whenever we are in Williamsburg. The selection and quality of the food is unbelievable. We have made a number of trips to Williamsburg and have never failed to have at least one meal at Berret's.

It was the off season, our 25th anniversary, and we didn't make a reservation. We had been out for a long day, and weren't particularly hungry, but wanted to go somewhere a little special. The wait was expected at about a half hour, and it...More

We had an early supper here and enjoyed live music from our table on the patio. There are corn hole games set up and a nice lawn. We ordered the grilled and saltine crusted shrimp which were both excellent. They were very busy at 5pm,...More
