Visited Barrert's yet again and we're convinced that it has a great kitchen producing so many unique and tasty dishes, from the appetizers, salads, and the main dishes. Can't comment on the soups because we've not tried any just yet. This evening we sat at the bar (it is rather small) and were served by Jess and Sam. They mix... More

The corn and crab soup was recommended and it was excellent. Then we had the crab cake..we were in Maryland, crab country! Good cole slaw, good crab cake, nice atmosphere and reasonable prices. Much more than we expected in a sea of fast food chain restaurants.

Wonderful local spot. Try the risotto. Love everything we order here. Thursday night is Jazz night. The owners really care and so does the staff.

Had brunch with a party of 10 today around noon. Staff and management was very nice and professional. However, I had the traditional eggs benedict as was seriously disappointed. First of all the English muffin was sliced--not fork split as it should have been--sounds like a little thing but it makes a huge difference in the toasted texture of the... More

We came here at dinnertime, a party of 7, pretty sure we had reservations just in case. They were originally going to seat us in the main dining room in front of the stage but the band was about to play so we asked to be seated elsewhere. They put us in one of the meeting rooms at a giant... More

I enjoyed eating here. Service was good; fodder was very good and prices were fair. I had the crab and lump crabmeat soup which was quite tasty. Next was the ribeye with fresh asparagus. My steak was undercooked. I sent it back -- they recooked it. I also enjoyed handout fresh French fries. I was satisfied but thought they could... More

Barrett's is moderately priced. The menu is focused but not too limiting and the food was delicious all round. The staff is also friendly and accommodating. Coffee is limited to regular fare. Location at the Hunt Valley Mall is handy to the movies and other shops.

I love this restaurant and can recommend it without hesitation. Every time we go I try something different and they never fail to delight. This time I tried the prime rib and since I rarely order beef out, I was amazed with the clave and the portion. It was cooked to my perfection. I also had they're mushroom risotto with... More

This is a cool local upscale restaurant. We arrived and decided to sit at a table in the bar area. The bartender completely ignored us and the wait staff serving people around us just kept walking past us. We finally asked for a menu and were promptly given menus. We decided on our meals and then waited. My buddy finally... More

We have eaten here on several occassions, Birthdays, Restaurant Week and Christmas Eve. The latest was during this years Restaurant Week. They have a special 3 course menu at a set price which gives you the chance to try new dishes.
