Both our server, William, and the Manager, Ken, were very welcoming and attentive. The cream crab and corn soup was outstanding. The meal was excellent. We'll tell our family and friends to go there!

Nice date night restaurant. Grilled Salmon, Scallops, & Surf ‘n Turf were cooked to perfection. Also had Apple Cobbler and Berries ‘n Cream for dessert. Best Apple Cobbler I’ve ever had.

Tried here for our 30th wedding anniversary dinner. Ate inside which was pleasant. Had a Mojito which was flavorful. Started with appetizers cream of crab and corn soup and tenderloin skewers - both delicious! We then split a lobster roll with fries. The roll was...buttery and homemade while the lobster was super. Server was very professional and we will be back.More

Two days ago my husband and I were travelling between Hershey, PA and our home in Northern Virginia and happened upon Barrett's Grill in time for lunch with Trip Advisor's help. What a delightful find. We started with the very fresh and tasty bacon wrapped...scallops on a bed of spinach for an appetizer. My husband had the lunchtime Salad/Sandwich combination of Kale Salad and a Crispy Chicken sandwich, so beautifully presented that it was a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. I enjoyed the fish tacos with string french fries. Everything was very fresh and well presented. We topped our lunch off by splitting the Dessert Trio of a taste of Key Lime Pie, Flourless Chocolate cake, and a Whipped Cream and Berry combination. We chose to eat outside even though the clouds were threatening but I noticed only about two or three of the inside tables were occupied. We felt perfectly comfortable there, the staff was attentive, and the food and its presentation were superb. Would happily stop again if we finding ourselves travelling in that area.More

Friday evening, we ordered carryout from Barrett's Grill in Hunt Valley, MD. Now that we're staying at home, we wanted to support one of our favorite local businesses, and to test how they are coping with being in carry-out mode only. We began by calling...the restaurant directly to place our order. It couldn't have gone more smoothly. The gentleman who took our order (Garrett) was warm and friendly, helped us make our selections, and repeated everything back to be sure he had gotten it correct. Our order would be ready in about 20 minutes. They offer curbside pick-up, but I chose to go in because we were splitting the check on two credit cards. As you would expect, the place was empty, but our order was ready on time. It was packaged well, and was still hot when I arrived home. The food was excellent, as always. I heartily recommend you give it a try!!More

This is my second time here and I actually ate at the restaurant this time. My first visit was months ago and I did a togo order and I was not impressed however this visit blew me away. I had the best meal I have...had in a long time and service was great. I had the crab and corn soup, I could have licked the bowl!!!! I also had the salmon and asparagus. Its hard to mess up asparagus but many can mess up a salmon steak and it was perfect, they did not ask me how I wanted it cooked but it came out almost well done, perfect in my book. It was not dried out or over cooked. I also had their Red Blend wine which was perfect meal in my mind and even though it was a red blend it still went well with my fish. Our server did a great job also and I wish I could remember her name.More

Went here with a group of 8. They did not have a table for us but set us up in the bar area. They have happy hour specials that make it sooooo worth it. Lemon drop martini was delicious and not too sweet (real squeezed...lemon juice). We all ordered apps because they were 1/2 price. The beef sliders melted in your mouth. I got chicken medallions with crab meat. They were cooked just right and flavorful. My friend got the fish special and it was yummy. They don’t give you a whole lot of food for the money, but definitely deliver on taste. Don’t forget your ID because they insist on seeing it, even if you are an old fart like me.More

Barrett's Grill is generally one of our favorites but fell short of our expectations on New Year's Eve. Our party of 4 was seated promptly at the time of our reservation and proceeded to order cocktails. After a considerable wait, we inquired as to the...status our drinks and were told the bar was backed up. After additional time passed, we inquired again and were told by the server she would check. When our drinks finally made it to the table, the ice had completely melted causing us to question how long our drinks sat unattended. Our Bacon wrapped scallops and Shrimp Cargot appetizers were outstanding, as were our main courses of Prime Rib and Filet. Following coffees and dessert, we requested our bill and found a charge for an extra dessert that we didn't have. Our server went to correct it but returned with a subsequent bill that was still wrong. While the one erroneous dessert was removed, another was added. The apparent confusion was the result of one of our party ordering from the Prix Fixe menu, which included dessert. Rather than spend more time on New Year's eve discussing accounting, we paid the bill and moved on. We have always been impressed by the quality of food and level of service at Barrett's, which influenced our choice in making our New Year's Eve dining reservations. Based upon our experience, staffing was inadequate to provide the level of service one reasonably expects on a special night.More

I recently spent an enjoyable evening with a group of 12 diners. We all had outstanding meals and cocktails and the ambiance was enhanced by the live background music. Many of us ordered the same drinks, soup, and main course. I started my meal with...their outstanding Crab and roasted corn soup. I understand this is an item they are well known for, I can definitely see why! I ordered the Prime Rib and loaded baked potato for my entree and asked that it be end cut as I also ordered it to be well done. It was prepared as ordered and was fabulous. It was so large that I ended up taking half of my meal home. The horseradish sauce was a delicious add on and enhanced the meat.More
