We celebrated my birthday over lambchops that were fabulous and my husband always gets Shrimp & Grits. Great food and so glad we were there on Tuesday with the jazz combo! What a lovely atmosphere.
The entire restaurant has an air of sophistication and the servers are wonderful....Top it off, Tuesday was half price wine so I had a blast and took home in a handled paper bag they provided the balance!
You can count on Barrett's Grill for every day and special events.

We three all ordered the very reasonable soup and 1/2 sandwich for $12. Mine consisted of crab and corn chowder and a grilled chicken, ham, gruyere, tomato and lettuce sandwich. Delicious!! Our server was Louis, very personable and informative. My two friends were first timers, and he gave them a good intro to the background of Barretts. We all had one drink and bills at just $20 plus tip--with a lot of value for the money. We sat at a banquette which I hate, but I got one of the chairs and managed! This was my fourth visit and I will be back!

Looking for good food and a relaxing evening following a stressful day, we reviewed Barrett's menu and made a reservation. Staff was friendly and professional; the food was delicious: well-presented and tasty. The tables are quite close together which raised the noise level to less than ideal.

We were having a fabulous dinner celebrating my spouse’s birthday. We rely on Barrett’s to supply a quiet intimate atmosphere. We had just ordered dessert when the maitre d’ sat a table of eight next to us with a bunch of babies and toddlers and one of the mom’s with a big butt practically in my face. We couldn’t eat our dessert fast enough. This wasn’t 4 in the afternoon. It was 7:30 at night. We’ve been to Barrett’s probably two dozen times, but if we go back, we’ll try to get a seat at the bar. Or we will not be back. Shame on Barrett’s for not being more considerate to the surrounding patrons.

Solid Surf and Turf restaurant and experience - Crab and corn chowder, Rockfish and Ribeye - all well prepared and well presented. Water Colin was outstanding, providing details and recommendations, confident in being able to deliver on his promises. Only minor issue was the music being a little loud for the limited population. We were at an early reservation and the music level seemed set for later. A minor quibble during a positive experience. We will be back.

Thank you again, and we look forward to your return. Have a great week, and take care.

Great Valentine’s Day (2/15!) with friends! The special price fixe menu had a variety of entrees from which to choose - salmon and crab cakes were delicious!
We had a variety of servers through our dinner as our waiter was pulled away, maybe for a large party. Barrett’s was “hoppin” that night!

My wife and I dined at Barrett's on Wednesday evening at 6pm. We were seated immediately upon arrival and the hostess was quite receptive to my wife's request for a table away from the entrance. We shared the Buffalo calamari and both of us enjoyed it immensely. I ordered the seared tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes (that night's special) and my wife had the salmon entree. There was nothing we could be critical of. Our waitress was attentive but not overbearing. We look forward to our next visit to Barrett's!

Not Barrett’s best night. One in our party ordered rock fish special and was very clear to waiter that she was allergic to shellfish. Her dinner arrived with heaping mound of lump crab in sauce over top of fish. Plate sent back. New plate had humongous mound of mashed potatoes and small piece of fish. No apology from waiter and no discount on her bill.

We love Barrett’s but they missed the mark on this reservation. The band playing was too loud. We will avoid nights when the band is there. They ran out of the special they advertised and the replacement seafood was very salty. Dinner was disappointing. But our server was excellent and very helpful.
