Q About Berret's Seafood

Since 1983, Berret’s Seafood Restaurant and Taphouse Grill has offered two dining choices in one convenient location. 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.

Q About the Taphouse Grill

The Taphouse Grill is our casual outdoor bar and grill that celebrates a more contemporary Virginia than our historic neighbors across Duke of Gloucester Street. The Taphouse Grill does not take reservations and is on a first come-first served basis. The menu features seafood, chicken and beef, highlighting Virginia specialties such as oysters, crab, and fresh produce. The Taphouse has a full bar that includes a wine menu featuring unique selections that highlight award winning wines from across the state and around the world, and a beer menu with more local microbrews on tap than any other outdoor restaurant in the area. Live music is featured every night in the summertime (weather permitting). Every Thursday is Flight Night. A different brewery, winery, distillery or cidery is featured each Thursday with 4 unique selections. Relax, enjoy a great meal and listen to some local music.

Open each April through October.
