We had a great time as always. We had Mary as our server. We’ve had her before. She’s always pleasant and does a great job!

This restaurant is unparalleled at all levels. Their food is spectacular in diversity, quality, preparation and presentation. Always cooked to perfection and oh so flavorful. The ambiance is just right to hear the music but quiet enough to talk. And their service staff is like no other - very warm and pleasant with great menu suggestions. They are attentive without being shadowing and make us feel as if we are the only customers. They also put forth a real team effort by servicing the diners' table even if they aren't the one assigned to that table.

We dine out often (in many parts of the country) and happily travel 2 hours each way to dine here. This is always our "special treat" place. Many restaurants could take notes!!

Wanted to take family out to dinner while visiting Baltimore area. Barrett’s was recommended and not too far. The corn and crab chowder was so delicious. As was every entree. Our waiter, I think named Cory was exceptional. He picked up on each of our party‘s tastes and tailored accordingly. My daughter wanted a certain cocktail on the drink menu but mentioned it would probably be better with raspberries than blueberries. That converted cocktail came within minutes and she loved it! He was knowledgeable and timely. Was a lovely evening!

Our server, Piper, was outstanding, especially considering it was late on the evening of Christmas Eve. She was a delight, festive, and the food was delicious, as usual. We loved our usual favorites as well as the new specials for the Christmas menu.

Server was very nice and the food was excellent (Maryland Benedict). My friend and I only get together 2x year and always order unlimited mimosas and have an extended lunch. We had to continually flag down our server for refills. Where as the servers are usually more prompt in offering refills.

Food was delicious/fantastic. There were 3 of us; 2 had been there once before. We had the scallops and octopus appetizers, and a steak, crab cake and veal dishes for entrees. Carrot cake dessert and coffee at the end. All were superb. Service was fine; though our waiter began the evening with a long spiel about how he would make the evening perfect, and then the 3 cocktails we ordered were all delivered incorrectly and had to be redone in some way. We then ordered the appetizers, and he only asked one of us for our entree order and then just walked away. We had to call him back to complete the ordering. Other employees frequently stopped by to check on things - it became very disruptive to our conversations. All in all still a great experience and I'd return.

This was our second visit to Barrett's Grill and it was just as wonderful as the first. We started our meal off with the shrimp cargot and the small kale salad, both of which we had ordered on our first visit and they were so good we had to have them again! For the main courses, we did the filet and blackened salmon, both of which were delicious. The service has been wonderful each time we were there, everyone there is helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend Barrett's Grill to anyone and we look forward to coming back again soon.

The waitress left for 30 minutes at a time. We only saw her 2 times. We had to ask the front where she was. We had to ask for clean silverware from other waiters and for dessert menus from other people.

Barrett's never disappoints! You know how sometimes you pay a lot for a dinner, and one or more of the dishes was kind of "meh", and then you regret having paid so much? We've been here at least 10 times, and we've never had a meh dish. The prices are reasonable for what you get. Some of our favorites are the herb chicken in cream sauce, lobster roll and the bread pudding. The service is always consistent and professional.

Barrett’s is our first choice for birthday celebrations and safe, outdoor Covid dining. Yesterday four of us ate inside. Leah was super attentive yet gave us time to enjoy our lunches and conversation. Inside never got busy and adjoining tables are blocked off from being seated. Several weeks ago, we had Kylee as our server outdoors. What a delight, both personality wise and great weather under the tented area. You can go wrong with grilled shrimp on any of the salads, salmon, crab cakes or the crab and corn soup. Save room for dessert...loved the fruit Napoleon one time and the trio for our group of four. One final note: on each of our occasions the friendly manager stopped by briefly to check on our dining experience. No wonder everyone is so happy working there. The staff seems to look out for one another and work as a team.
