We had the halibut and crab cakes. Both were delicious. I eat a lot of halibut because it's my favorite and this was one of the best. It was a special but I'm hoping they put it on the menu.

Colin was an outstanding waiter. He was very knowledgeable about wine and food menu and provided friendly, efficient and professional service. The best waiter we’ve ever had, although Barrett’s has a very good wait staff.

Enjoyed my time on Friday night for dinner however I have to say I was all set to have the Shepherds pie only to learn it should be taken off the menu. The Salmon was good but wasn't my first choice and I was celebrating my birthday so yes I was a little disappointed.

The service could have been better. I didn't think that our waitress was very attentive to us. I also asked one server for some bread and also our waitress when she came by. I had to request it a second time from our waitress before we received any.

I am always impressed with the team approach that is practiced at Barrett’s. The manager, receptionists, servers, and bus people compliment each other. If a server is busy and can’t welcome a newly seated guest,another server picks up on it. The person immediately comes over, introduces herself/ himself , gets your water and will even start your order. I have met several of the managers including Ken and Andre, they are friendly to customers and supportive of their staff. All of these things, and of course the delicious and amazing food, make a visit to Barrett’s a wonderful treat!

We had an amazing server ( unfortunately I can’t recall his name). Overall we had. Nice experience but my fish was a little overcooked. Probably my fault as I tend to like it on the medium rare side and I didn’t specify.

Went for brunch with my sister and parents (senior citizens). My parents have been many times, but this was my first visit. The food was delicious - I had the Maryland Omelette and my sister had the Maryland Benedict. Both items had generous amounts of lump crabmeat. You weren't looking for the crab in your entrees! Service was great. Marcus was attentive and extremely patient with my chatty table. Definitely recommend Barrett's to friends and family.

I and four friends have for over four years picked a restaurant in the
Baltimore area to eat at once a month. Our mission is to find the best
cheeseburger-french fries meal in the region. Barrett's Grill is
definitely not it. The hamburgers were all the same pre-formed size.
Definitely not freshly prepared at the restaurant. Although I had
requested my burger to be rare, it did not have a bit of pink in it.
It was dense and dry. There was a good sized piece of cheese on the
burger and the roll had been toasted (a good sign). Although the menu
stated that the fries were "house cut" , their definition of "house
cut" and mine are definitely different. The fries were of the shoe
string variety, all uniform in dimension and all the same pale color.
They looked like a previously frozen kind to me. If I am wrong please
let me know. When I pulled up to the restaurant I saw a Sysco truck
leaving the parking lot. I was hoping that the delivery was to another
restaurant in the shopping center. After the disappointing meal, I
suspect that my meal originated in the back of that truck.

I did hear back from Barrett's. They admitted that they do not use fresh potatoes for their french fries. They claim that they recently made this change but had not had time to change their menu. Extremely dishonest.

We are Barrett's regulars, but this time we were joined by 3 other couples. Our round table of 8 was well situated, and well served by Bruce. He was caring and attentive to all 8 of us, and made sure we got everything we ordered. Several of us had the halibut special which was excellent. My wife and I enjoyed their kale salad, which was delicious. We also enjoyed a martini at the bar before dinner, nicely prepared by John. Barrett's continues to be one of suburban Baltimore's top restaurants. Should add that this dinner was on a Saturday night when many establishments struggle to keep up. Not Barretts.

One of our favorite local restaurants - food and service always top-notch. In the last month, we've gone to its sister restaurants, Barretts on the Pike and Glyndon Grill. While both were good, Barrett's Grill is still our favorite. Another excellent meal - apps and entrees - salads, soup, shrimp & grits, short ribs and marinated sirloin! Our server, Jason, was great - anticipating all of our needs and super friendly. Highly recommend Barrett's Grill!

My husband, daughter and myself thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. There was a nice selection of entrees and our food was delicious. I made the reservation on line and noted that it was my daughters birthday. The waiter surprised her with a dessert of marscapone and house made whipped cream with some berries and a candle. It was a nice gesture. However I was surprised to find they had charged us $9.50 for the dessert. I have eaten in many restaurants that offer a complementary dessert for a special occasion. However if you are going to charge, at least let the person choose a dessert of their liking. The dessert was quite rich and was barely touched. Just a thought.....

The seafood and prime rib entrees were excellent and the service was courteous and prompt. Although always suspicious of the quality of food and service available at restaurants inside a large shopping center, we were pleasantly surprised by both the ambiance and quality of Barrett's Grill. We shared appetizers that included cream of crab soup with large lump meat Crab and seared sea scallops wrapped in bacon, Everything carefully prepared and obviously fresh. The prime rib was tender and beautifully seasoned.

Waiter was great. Outside venue great! Food was great except for the fish. My brother-in-law ordered the special which was fish with fried oysters on top. The fried oysters were excellent but the fish was dry. He specifically asked the waiter to see about trying to make the fish medium(not well or overdone)...
Everything else was great.
