    Nice bar area and friendly bartenders. Great drinks. 4 of us went and everyone loved their dinners - the salmon I got was the best I've had anywhere. Our waiter, Ethan was friendly, patient and courteous and took very good care of us. The evening was a wonderful dining experience. Can't wait to go back.

    Me and my wife went to Barrett's after a recommendation from our parents. We were there to celebrate a promotion at work. We had an excellent server who explained everything very well and was super personable. We had an amazing time and were the last to leave in the restaurant when they closed. We will be back!!

    The dinner started well then went downhill. I had the crab and corn soup and hubbie had the house salad and both were good. The main course had issues. Hubbie ordered swordfish with scalloped potatoes. I ordered scallops and a side of brussels sprouts for us to share. We were both served scallops with no sides. It is not like they just served the order to the wrong table because it took a very long time for his entree to arrive. His swordfish was good. My risotto and spinach were tasty. The scallops, however, were awful. They were sandy and had a terrible aftertaste. I said something to the server who told the manager. They were very apologetic and both dinners were comped, which we did not expect. The food score of "3" is avg of 2 & 4.

    I love this restaurant. Tuesday and Thursday nights there is a group who plays light jazz and they have 1/2 price bottles of wine. They have an excellent wine list. The waiter missed giving us our rolls (which are excellent and served hot) but we did not leave hungry. The soup of the day was a tortilla soup which was excellent. Not too spicy so all the flavors were there for the tasting. Loved the chunks of avocado in it. The pork tenderloin served over mashed sweet potatoes was excellent. The shaved brussel sprouts were unusual and very tasty. Great meal. They have an excellent wait staff as well. Always enjoy this outing.

    My husband and I went here for a romantic dinner. We were not disappointed!! Great service, knowledgeable wait staff, dimmed lighting, extensive wine list! The food was spectacular!! I had the prime rib, it was tender and juicy. It was also HUGE!! Hubby got the pork loin roast in a demi glaze....delicious. I kept dipping my prime rib in the sauce!! We will be back!"

    Barrett's is great for lunch & dinner. The brunch was disappointing. We waited about 30 minutes for our food and when it came some of the sides were missing. We could have gotten similar food much cheaper & quicker at a diner.

    This was the 4th visit to Barrett's and compared to other visits, it was just okay. The food was warm at best, the rolls were hot though. And our server did keep our drinks filled. Other than that, there were intrusions by the waitstaff which made my girlfriend feel uncomfortable and our seating was next to the door for the patio area, so there was constant traffic and noise. As always our appetizer was awesome, but the pricing for the menu had changed drastically from what it had stated online.

    I had been to Barrett's twice for lunch and suggested that my husband and I should try it for dinner. A nice surprise, Thursday night is half price wine night, and the wine list is quite extensive. My husband had a strip steak and I had Chilean sea bass. Added bonus: live music! The preparation, presentation, and service were lovely. This is a great find--a good value for good food with nice ambiance.

    Phil, the bartenderslashwaiter consistently provides outstanding service, drink recommendations, etc. as the rest of the waitstaff pitches in when they pass. Always a friendly atmosphere with friendly clientele. Entrees were very good, but I would not order calamari again. Very salty with a bit too much of a bite from the peppers. The lobster roll is a great menu item, but the promised special herb mayonnaise tasted quite ordinary. Groupons always helpful!

    This is my third time at Barrett's. I love the outdoor seating and our food was good (not great) but the service we received was really not up-to-par this time. I could see our server chatting with a coworker for about 4 minutes before greeting us, she forgot our drinks (then again we had to wait close to 10 minutes for refills) and my husband's food came out incorrectly, which they did fix. Overall, I wasn't that impressed. This is my husband's first visit and he is adamant he won't return.

    Well we thought we were off to a really bad start when my husband and I arrived for his birthday dinner with reservations and we were escorted to a table for 6, telling us it was the last table available!!! They easily could have remade the table before they brought us to it and there would have been no issue but it was laughable! On to the meal...our waiter was great! Our drinks, not so great. After a "fix" one was made acceptable. Our waiter, however, was excellent. Made a ho hum dinner a lot more fun when he let us taste two wines before choosing and then again for my husband's glass. The prime rib was actually very good. The swordfish was also good. Crispy oysters were tasty but not memorable. Berry napoleon for dessert was tasty.

    Four of us went there during Baltimore County Restaurant Week. We sat outside in a nice shady area, and had an outstanding server (Stephanie) who answered our many questions and made recommendations on both food and wine. Service was at a good pace -- not rushed, but we didn't wait long for any course, either. All of the food was wonderful. The duck ravioli was amazing and we are hoping it gets added to the regular menu. The creme brulee was among the best we've had anywhere. We will definitely be back.

    A group of 6 of us dined at Barrett's Grill and ordered a range of food from the menu, everything from ribs with fries and delicious freshly made soups to a nice meat or seafood dish accompanied by a light risotto. The scallops with the smoked bacon and wild mushroom risotto are out of this world, and the presentation is equal to that of any one-star Michelin restaurant. The restaurant strives for an eclectic menu and sometimes the chef is more successful with one type of cuisine than another in such restaurants, but all of us greatly enjoyed our menu choices at Barrett's Grill.

    Barrett's has become a neighborhood favorite of ours and we frequent it often, especially since they often offer Groupon, etc deals. The food is always good, and I have probably eaten half the menu over the past couple of years. But, the standout for us, believe it or not, is the French Dip sandwich. Absolutely the best French Dip I have ever had and we keep coming back to it again and again. Barrett's ambiance is excellent with a modern, comfortable interior and a great patio with lots of seating. Above all else, the service here is terrific. Always nice but professional and friendly. The managers will frequently check in to make sure all is going well too. Consistent great food and service is a winner in our book.

We especially liked the great choices on the Restaurant Week menu ( ended up with mussels and crab cake) and the fact that you didn't have to have dessert. Becoming a real g0-to place!

    Met with a group of 8 friends and family and couldn't have been happier with the atmosphere and food. We beat the dinner rush and ended up lingering around for 2 hours. Our waiter was very in tune with the pace of our meal and he anticipated every need. The crab and corn chowder was a great start to the meal for several and salads were very satisfying for many in the party. Seafood was the entree of choice for the majority of us and in each case the food was fresh and delicious. The shrimp and grits and salmon dishes were excellent. I highly recommend Barrett's. Five members of the party drove over an hour to get to the restaurant and all said the trip was well worth it!
