The brunch was delicious, I had the excellent crab benedict because I couldn't get the day starter with rare prime rib, and the bottomless mimosas. My friend did have the day starter and said it was the best benedict she's ever had. She also had The New Fashioned to drink and really enjoyed it.

Best of all was our waitress Mary. We were there for several hours catching up and she was always attentive to our needs from the first moment to the last. Really exceptional.

So, have never even heard of Barretts to be honest. This restaurant happened to be exactly halfway between two sisters that had never met before. Found out our connection thru 23nme about 6 months ago. I'm 57, she's 50. I told the waitress of the special occasion, and I'm telling you, she couldn't have been any more understanding, considerate, polite...whatever you want to call it. She was great. Her name was Catherine. She let us have our space, didn't rush us in the least. Our "lunch" lasted 5 hours and we were never pushed to leave. The food was amazing! The crab/corn chowder by far the best I've ever had. The scallops in bacon were to die for (wish I had some right now actually) and the peach cobbler was just crazy! My husband raved about his fish tacos and my new sister loved her chicken flatbread too! Oh, Martinis were beyond excellent too! Even though Barretts is 35 miles from my house, it will definitely be on our "go to" list. Can't wait to take all my friends from Pasadena! Next time we will definitely do dinner because the dinner menu looks fabulous too! Great atmosphere, great service, fabulous food and fantastic staff! Can't really say anymore! Keep up the good work Barretts (and Catherine!)

Three of us went Barrett's Hunt Valley and were beyond pleased. One had Steak and Eggs - eggs cooked to his preference and steak was very good. One had Egg's Benedict and raved about the quality. I had the French Toast with Fruit. This was good!!!, but VERY sweet. I wasn't able to eat all of it. This entre should be a dessert, shared by 3 people. We enjoyed Barrett's so much, we booked a group get- together s. Waiter/Bartender was great and very helpful. When we booked, I requested window seating. The hostess was going to seat us right smack in the middle of restaurant, while all window seating was wide open. We did get to move. The hostess said they only receive the reservations, not specific requests. We have had this problem before at other restaurants. Do you send in requests?

Barrett’s is always tasty. We started off asking about drinks. Our server was quite young and really couldn’t answer any questions we had. He we t to the bar several times to get answers. We ordered a couple drinks which were just ok, the margarita and a vodka and soda water with cherry bitters.

We ordered the bacon wrapped scallops which were amazing. They had a buttery sauce over top and sat on some wilted spinach and fresh diced tomatoes. There are only three… it was hard to share, but we did. Lol!

The market fish was Cajun swordfish with a couple shrimp on top and cauliflower rice pilaf. Our waiter misunderstood what it was and said cauliflower AND rice pilaf. I could have the cauliflower but not the rice. He checked with the chef and clarified that it was cauliflower rice, which I can have. So I asked for that and another side of their roasted cauliflower. When it came out, it had the roasted cauliflower but no rice pilaf. It was ok, because my hubby got the rice pilaf and mine was better. Very flavorful and tasty.

Then at the end of dinner, we decided to go with the almond mocha coffee. We asked what was in it. He didn’t know it was on the menu so we showed him. He went and asked a couple people. Even the manager didn’t know that the coffees were on there. Luckily the bartender did, and confirmed it was disoranno (sp?) and we ordered it. It was very delicious!

Overall, the meal was good. As the evening went on, it got really noisy inside, and it was hard to hear our waiter. Lol I also accidentally nicked over the cream for the coffee and the waiter cleaned it up quickly without a hitch. I really appreciated that.

The only complaint I have is it would be helpful if the staff knew what was on the menu. 😂
