    Sarah our waitress was awesome, perfect timing and very pleasant, the food was great, Except the crab cake, please use jumbo Lump crab next time, the crab cake was an embarrassment that was once great, that we raved about to our out of town clients.

    Great service that started with a background of restaurant. Our server made wonderful recommendations. The drinks were delicious. The meal was flavorful and filling. I think the Napoleon dessert was our favorite.

    The table we requested was a win, much appreciated. Katie Ritz our server was outstanding. The menu needs a refresh….. the cost vs value piece is missing. Example a Pike Salad sounds lovely in the description but very disappointing when it arrived on a bread a butter plate….. for $9.00

    We go to Barrett's quite often it is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious and the service is excellent. My wife had a salad and salmon with string beans she said it was delicious and I had a mahi fish sandwich with french fries so good. When my granddaughter comes in town this is her favorite restaurant. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone - great food - great service.

    Four of us went to Barrett’s for lunch. We got an appetizer and 4 different meals. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the service was excellent. We have gone to Barrett’s many times in the past. We think it is one of the best restaurants in Bel Air.

    I had the shrimp and grits and they were fantastic! The server was wonderful, very considerate of the toddler who was with us, talked knowingly about the food, and was very attentive with filling our water glasses etc. I would say that the back room tends to be a little noisy. My daughter had the strawberry salad and said, as usual, that it's her favorite there. I would suggest that the restaurant consider adding apple juice to the kids' menu.

    The drinks and food were pretty good! The issue I had was I ordered a side of bacon which cost $4 and it is only 2 pieces. I think if I am being charged $4 for a side of bacon I am expected at least 3-4 pieces. I also got an apple cobbler and wasn’t crazy about the breading it was like oats versus a dough.

    Seated on time, food was very good but took a while… arrived nearly an hour after seating. But we were in no hurry. Like most restaurants, cocktails are expensive; especially when you add O’Malley’s 9% then tip. Hard to go without one though. But two mixed drinks come to: $28 + 9% + 20% = $36.12. Compare to Just in Thyme in Rehoboth: drinks are half that price and no tax: $14 + 20% = $16.80. I don’t get it; same cocktail. I’ll go back. Especially for brunch. Server was very pleasant.

    We often frequent Barrett’s. Love the food and staff. Can be excessively noisy at times. Only detracting feature …… excessively soiled/dirty carpet. Heard someone at another table comment about it and when I looked down had to agree. Needs to desperately be replaced. Hope management addresses it. Should not be in an upscale restaurant.

    We have dined at Barrett's On The Pike every other month for a few years. We felt compelled to with this review after our most recent visit and hope that the feedback will be a source for improvement. The main concern is a very basic one. The last 2 visits, our salads and entrees were served at the same time. We politely sent the salads back the first time. On our most recent visit, our entrees needed to be reheated after we finished the salads. The meatloaf entree was heated in a microwave that made it very rubbery. A side note on the meatloaf. The seasoning was overwhelming spicy (hot) that made it inedible. The baked potatoes are routinely cold. On a positive note the Filet Entree, Filet with Risotto and the Grilled Salmon are always cooked properly and very tasty.
