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.
Our full beverage service includes a newly expanded 80-bottle wine list with 20 wines by the glass, local micro-brews and full bar service.
The interior of the restaurant reflects 30 years of collecting art, mainly local, in all forms from oils, watercolors, ceramic, natural and carved wood pieces and etched glass, with new art added regularly.
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 menu features seafood, chicken and beef, highlighting Virginia specialties such as oysters, crab, and fresh produce. Steamed whole Virginia blue crabs are available during the summer. The Taphouse has a full bar that includes a wine menu featuring unique selections that highlight award winning wines from across the state, and a beer menu with more local microbrews on tap than any other outdoor restaurant in the area. Live music is featured on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays (weather permitting). Every Thursday during the summer is Steal the Pint Night. A different brewery is featured each night with 4 unique draft beers. Keep the glass, enjoy a great meal and listen to some local music.
The Taphouse Grill is open each April through the end of October.
