Always a great meal. The food quality is excellent. We had the scallops risotto, french dip and chicken alfresco, with the tomato basil soup to start. High quality, delicious, and supported with a friendly staff. One of our favorites!

We had a reservation for outdoors, which is a seating option offered on open table. However, when we arrived, we were told that outside seating cannot be guaranteed and that walk-Ins can be sat over those with reservations. We had to wait 35 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. Service was fine after that issue.

We enjoyed our dinners overall. Three of the dishes were relatively expensive meat dishes: prime rib, short ribs and lamb chops. Tasty, but a little too well done for how we ordered. The shirt ribs, a signature dish we've ordered before which previously has always been cooked to perfection, was stringy this time. I guess we could have asked for each to be re-done, and they would have done it readily, but we were hungry and the meals we just good enough.
The covered patio is wonderful in these days of Covid.

My fiancée and I had a wonderful time. Our server Zoey was very friendly and amazing, she made a great recommendation for the crab and corn soup as well as the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. I got the short rib and my girlfriend got the lobster roll, and both were an easy 5 star as soon as the first bite. The drinks were a little pricey but definitely delicious. I know we will be back again soon.

Food and service are consistently outstanding at Barrett’s. Our server, Mike C. provided my guests and I some of the best and most personable service ever experienced. The tuna and shrimp cargot appetizers along with the crab & corn chowder, AMAZING as always! Entrees were scallops w/ risotto, ribs & filet medallions w/ risotto…although my usual is the shrimp & grits (which is outstanding too). Ended with key lime pie (which I believe is made in house- and is scrumptious). Barrett’s provided a relaxing atmosphere, wonderful service & superb food.

I had asked for NO Banquette and stated that is was a Birthday and we were led right to a banquette!! No one acknowledged the birthday at all. Service was good and food is always delicious. It was the first time that our requests were ignored. After complaining about banquette, we were taken to a more private booth, so that was resolved. BTW, the banquette was right next to the door to the kitchen and hallway to the restrooms. Really, why make a reservation at all????

It hurts to write this one, but consistency is needed.

"What is your fish in the "FRESH MARKET FISH SANDWICH?"

That wrapped up the series of questions I had for our server, and without missing a beat, as she had done with the other 4 previous ones, gave me a confident answer: "Halibut."

I had not been this excited in a long time. The pandemic had and continues to limit where and how often we eat out; and Barrett's Grill is not far at all from where we live. So getting an awesome halibut fish sandwich with chef’s dressing, pickles, & LTO, inside a delicious brioche, sounded amazing....heck....halibut anyway would be a reason to celebrate, especially in Maryland, where the King of the Flatfish is an after thought to most chefs.

This is the first time I have been disappointed with Halibut. The fish was tasteless--which broke my heart because it was cooked perfectly.--and had none of those crab-meat like sweet qualities. I attempted to eat it...but after the 3rd bite it was not working for me anymore.

My wife's salmon was perfectly cooked. She loved it. But unfortunately, she had to eat my fries because hers where cold upon arrival. Oh. Also, my fish arrived without the fries, so I had to inquire about them. The fries that came a few minutes later were perfect--right off the frier-hot, crispy, and properly salted.

After letting the server know that I did not enjoy the sandwich as I pointed to the dish that I had attempted to love, she promptly removed it and apologized. However, when the bill came, the $22 sandwich was there. At $22 it was the most expensive sandwich in the lunch and brunch menu, and one of the most expensive entrees.

There was something off with that Halibut. That added to the short list of things that were missteps during our last visit.

I live near the Bel Air location but decided to try the Hunt Valley location for my birthday brunch since the menu was slightly different. While the overall look of the HV restaurant is a little more upscale than Bel Air, the service, food and drinks don't compare. My sausage and his bacon were way undercooked. Sent them back and instead of offering 2 new sausage links, the ones I previously got were just cooked again. I know this because I had cut a small piece off one of the links before I realized how raw it actually was. I promise that wouldn't ever happen in Bel Air...not that I have EVER gotten food that I sent back. I did get a small slice of the flourless chocolate cake that they offer since it was my birthday, but unfortunately I'm not a fan of their version of this cake. I appreciated the acknowledgement though. Overall, the atmosphere was relaxing and it was my birthday so I wasn't bothered by anything. Enjoy!
