Great new bone in rib eye. Too bad the chef couldn’t cook it right. Ordered medium. First one came out well done. Second one came out rare. Third one was cooked ok. Paid full price. No consideration offered. No free drink, app or desert. Will teach me to stick with Bluestone.

We eat here fairly often and have never been disappointed--the food is consistently good but it's the excellent service that stands out time and time again--always a very friendly wait staff, and a policy I have never experienced elsewhere -- when a steak is brought to the table the server asks the diner to cut into it to make sure it is to his or her liking. A great place to enjoy a reliably delicious meal before or after a movie.

My wife and I both had their crab and roasted corn soup - EXCELLENT - the rumors were true. We'd love to have the recipe for it just like Charleston's lobster bisque and the wild mushroom soup the the old Gibby's restaurant had. My wife had their lobster roll - very good but not the best she's had. I had the "Mango and Mandarin orange" salad - very good but mango pieces were not quite ripe enough and the greens could have been cut into smaller pieces. Overall, Barrett's Grill has always been very good and the crowd there on Friday evening proved it. As Yogi Berra once was quoted as saying - "that place is terrible; it's always crowded."

Our family was there to celebrate my daughter’s 50th birthday. We had a wonderful evening topped off by gathering near the fire pit to enjoy birthday cake. The staff at Woodberry did a great job setting the area up with everything we needed. It was truly a hit with everyone. Our thanks to the staff!!

Food is excellent, it's a handsome space, and the service is good. What's the problem? The noise. I specifically asked in my reservation request to be seated in the back room or the bar area because we wanted less noise. This request was not considered. The hostess seated us ten feet away from the jazz trio who were very good but very loud. She did move us after I asked - she looked as though she had heard this before - but after twenty minutes of waiting, we had to take a table only slightly further away.

I'm at the point where I refuse to go into a restaurant that's playing live music. When I'm at dinner, I want to be with friends and talking, not incarcerated by the music. One should listen to music (and these folks were good), and that's inconsistent with a social experience like eating out.

Barrett's is a fine restaurant and it's popular; and I have no doubt that it will continue to be popular, noisy or not. The owner/manager seems to be very customer oriented, though; so, perhaps if he reads this and hears more of the same from other people, he might take steps to reduce the noise level. The restaurant is terrific in every other way.

My wife and I had dinner at Barrett's this past Friday evening! We really enjoy the company of the couple we were with and were worried when we first sat down that the noise level was going to impede our conversation. And, it was a bit challenging through the early part of our meal, but as the crowd thinned, we were able to converse in a much easier fashion. We all ordered signature drinks from the menu and they were good - tasty and with appropriate levels of liquor. We also ordered the crab soup, prepared with roasted corn! Delicious!! When it came to dinner, my wife ordered the crab cakes ($30.00 with slaw as the side), while I chose one of the chef's specials of the evening (priced at $29.00). My entree was by far the better of the two choices! It was a beautiful halibut filet, served with lump lobster meat and a light sauce over risotto. Everyone at my table agreed that my meal was the best. The crab cakes were just not the "style" that we are accustomed to - rounded, not formed into "cakes" and not much golden color from the preparation. Our server did a wonderful job, with just the right amount of attention without being overbearing! Great job, Bruce! Overall, we all agreed that we would definitely return when in the area!

We had a solid meal at Barrett's with very good service. Given that almost all the restaurants in the greater Hunt Valley area are chains, this is a good option for the location.

Even though I shared 3 different times we were celebrating a birthday at our table the "surprise" BD dessert with candle was NEVER served. Not having the small dessert with candle as a surprise for the birthday girl was totally disappointing. Therefore I will not return to this restaurant.

Always like going here. Lovely outdoor seating. We had a great server named John(?). Food was good but not great. I had shashimi tuna salad. Tuna was sliced paper thin-too thin. Salmon was overdone. Scallops and Halibut were good. Waiter raved about carrot cake. Not good at all. Dry and spongy. Overall though enjoyed the meal.
