very busy the waitress was great and the beverages were served fast but the main meal was slow, may have been due to how busy it was. The food was well prepared and had great taste

I called and made a reservation for 20 teenagers and two adults. The person who answered was friendly and immediately texted me a confirmation message. The next day, they sent a reminder/confirmation. Once there, we had about an hour for lunch, and the waitresses were fast and friendly. The food was good. I had the french dip sandwich with fries....

Definetly liked the laid back pub like atmosphere and the staff was friendly and quick. The selection of beer was OK and the food was good as well. We only ate some quick apps but the wings were great.

Living in the north end of Fall River there are not a lot of options when it comes to restaurants. My husband and I frequent Barret’s Ale House for mostly takeout food. When I say frequent I mean at least twice per week. We have grown increasingly frustrated with the on-line specials as they are either never correct or outdated.... More

Having been frequenting Barrett's since it first opened. I've seen several iterations to both the restaurant itself and its menu. The recent menu change (made in Mar '17) has drastically eliminated many (favorite) choices and of course includes price increases. How about the most expensive appetizer being nachos - at $12. $12 for a plate of chips, cheese and salsa... More

Local bar with food. The bar is always busy and happy associates are eager to wait on you. Attentive and polite orders are taken probably with a smile. The tables need a better cleaning before you sit. A little loud for my liking. It's ok for a quick meal if your hungry. Nothing really special on the menu

I went to Barrett’s Ale House for a Birthday present, and even though I do not like sports, I enjoyed visiting. I ordered a salad without any dressing or cheese, and some sweet pototo fries. I was pleased with the service because when I asked if the fries cross-containmated with oil from meat, the waitress was very polite about it,... More

I have been here many times with friends or with family. This place is also great for children. They have a small arcade area. The food has always been great every time I have visited

I'd heard excellent things about this place and couldn't wait to try it. The atmosphere was fine, place was clean, easy off-hwy access and service excellent. I found the food lacking, however. I sent back the 'bolognese' lasagna, tasted like stewed tomatoes. It was replace with the chili, which was very good but made me sick immediately. My friend enjoyed... More

We went on a busy night but made reservations through an app as the restaurant doesn't take reservations/call ahead seating. It did not take us very long...less than 5 minutes, to be seated. Our table got boneless wings as an appetizer and they were good, not any worse/better than other places we have got them from. We got the gold... More
