    Great outdoor dining, we hit during Restaurant Week and the selections were good portions and excellently prepared. Our server was very professional in manner but incredibly unattentive - they were not busy inside was empty, no excuse.

    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.

    Our waiter seemed to have forgotten us all night. We had to wait for our order to be taken and it took forever for him to check on us to see if we needed drink refills and to see if we wanted desert. Hopefully, this was an off night, because the food is really good.

    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.

    The food was well prepared. All four of us enjoyed our meal I had the Ali tuna dinner it was cooked perfectly. I did think the salad that came as a starter was a bit small as well as the Tuna but it did not detract from the quality or enjoyment of the meal

    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 just keeps getting better. Had lunch with a friend, and forgot it was restaurant week. No worries - great food and fantastic service. 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!

    The service was the highlight for sure. Even our waitress, who was obviously a bit new, was incredibly attentive and charming. The food quality has declined since my last visit. I ordered the rack of lamb and the sauce just tasted salty and the meat was medium instead of medium rare. New chef? The appetizer of shrimpcargot was pretty stellar though. All in all a good experience, but there is room for improvement.

    Barrett's used to be great; sadly, it has become pretty lame. Halibut special was overcooked, and the fish wasn't very good to begin with -- wonder how fresh it was. Steaks used to be their strong suit, but the filet was tough and not very tasty. Wine special table got talked into wasn't so special when server informed us -- after opening and pouring wine -- that the 15% off coupon that had been clearly visible on the table since our party was seated could not be used in conjunction with the half-off wine. We had originally ordered the house wine (not half-off), but server talked us into twice-the-price non-house bottle. Saved $32 on wine we weren't going to order anyway, but lost more on missed coupon savings. Skip Barrett's!!

    I noticed in the ratings for noise level that "energetic" was used vs loud. But that is a fair description for the restaurant on this Saturday evening. There were at least 3 birthdays being celebrated and the restaurant was full. The waiter was great, knowledgeable about the menu and attentive. Food was very good. The shrimp cargo appetizer was a great one to share. Penne with Vodka sauce and crab, a little light on sauce and crab, but deemed tasty. BBQ shrimp and grits very good, but smaller portion than is usually served with this southern dish. Overall the scallops and risotto and salmon gained praise at the table.

    You don't expect to find a great restaurant in a shopping mall, but Barrett's Grill is quickly becoming one of my most recommended dining spots. With a superb, friendly wait staff, good wine selection and a diverse menu, it's great for a relaxing Sunday lunch , a quick bite during a shopping excursion, or a more formal evening of fine dining. The surroundings make you forget that your grocery store is within walking distance. The corn and crab chowder alone is well worth a visit. What would seem to be an unsophisticated selection, the meat loaf stack is given the same lovely presentation as the Napolean medallions of beef. We have yet to be disappointed in any meal, whether for a large family gathering or an intimate dinner.

    We dined there after a movie. I ordered Salmon, she ordered the Grilled Veggies. At first the service was excellent, very attentive. When the veggie dish arrived, it was missing the main ingredient. We notified our server who headed off to the kitchen. The grilled mushroom did not arrive until I had completed my meal and the dishes were cleared. Then our server disappeared and could not be found. Any business can have a bad night. What Barrett's did wrong was not apologize or offer to make it right. This was a failure on 3 parts, the Server, the Kitchen and the Manager. Seems like more than just a bad night.

    I celebrated my birthday with two special friends at Barrett's Saturday night. The food was amazing! We all tried the special of the night which was tilapia wrapped around two small crab cakes. I had mashed sweet potatoes and the salad with the cashews which was to die for. I was so full from the meal but when my friends ordered dessert I could not resist the Crème Brule. We had the best time and our waitress was terrific! My friends and I were slow to order because we were busy catching up but our waitress was very patient.

    We were celebrating a friend's birthday and all 5 of us had outstanding meals! There is a huge selection on the menu to choose from burgers and salads to full course meals. You get quality food for very reasonable prices. Service is always perfection! Nice, competent wait staff, always willing to accomodate your needs. John Barrett, the owner, is an outstanding owner. He greets people and walks around to make sure everything is fine. We are lucky to have this gem of a restaurant in our area. Highly recommend for lunch or dinner.
