About Berret’s Seafood Restaurant

Since 1983, Berret’s Seafood Restaurant and Taphouse Grill has offered two dining options, each with their own character. Inside dining, which used to be a gas station, or outside under the Taphouse Grill overlooking the William & Mary.   We are located in Merchants Square, one block from the Historic Area of Colonial Williamsburg and across from the College of William & Mary.

The Seafood Restaurant has been voted by locals as “Best in Seafood Restaurant” and “Best Crabcake” year after year. We actively seek out the freshest in regional seafood and produce. Our proximity to the York and James Rivers, Chesapeake Bay, and offshore Atlantic waters provide a variety of fresh seasonal catches: shad roe, softshell crabs, sea trout, and striped bass in the spring; flounder, cobia, tuna, wahoo and bluefish in the summer; and rockfish, red fish and sea bass each fall. With the availability of local natural oysters and clams and the advent of aquaculture, we offer shellfish year-round. For those who wish not to eat seafood, equal care is taken with our steaks, chops and poultry entrees. Children are welcome with special menus and in spirit as well.

Our full beverage service includes a newly expanded 50-bottle wine list with 15 wines by the glass, local micro-brews and full bar service.
