Very friendly service, food was good. We had to ask for bread but they brought it once we did. The bar didn’t have Southern Comfort (my mom’s favorite, and it was Mother’s Day so this was a bummer) but overall a very good experience!!

We were there on Mother's day, so it was busy. Maybe they're having a hard time finding employees, but the service was slow. Several times my husband had to chase our waitress down for things. The food was good, but I've eaten here several times and it has been much much better on previous visits. We'll be back but not on Mother's day.

This was our first time dining at Barrett's on the Pike. We drove from PA as we were considering Barrett's for an October Wedding Rehearsal Dinner. Everything was so fabulous - we will be booking the Rehearsal Dinner for one of their private rooms. And the service was exceptional! We will be back!

Such great food! We ate in the bar where it was upbeat and friendly. We loved our team with Frenchie in the lead! The food was amazing. We were going to share the short ribs and the beef with risotto but he liked the short ribs so much he barely shared! We are going back tonight and then again on Mother's Day! GO! EAT! ENJOY!

Pricy, but excellent service. Very good food. Initially felt rushed, but that settled. Will def go back. Due to price, this is more of a special occasion restaurant for us. Glad we went! Also, glad we have a special occasion type restaurant instead of like all the other average places.

We always enjoy our dining experience at Barrett’s on the Pike. From the greeting at the door to the coffee after the meal everything is perfect and they make you feel at home. This particular time it was Restaurant Week and the meal that we had began with piping hot crab dip served with little slices of warm buttered bread and a dish of the dip. It was excellent! Then we had crab cakes for dinner that were true Maryland crab cakes. Simply delicious. Rounded off with dessert and coffee and we had another wonderful meal at Barrett’s on the Pike!

We had a lovely lunch at your restaurant, as always. Our server was attentive but not stifling, which is appreciated when we spend so much time at a single visit. Thank you for allowing us to linger over a joined lunch between former neighbors... especially since I travel an hour each way to visit with my friend.

First time to visit Barrett's on the Pike - I wanted to take my sister who was visiting from out of state to someplace special and Barrett's did not disappoint! Our server was wonderful and offered great suggestions. We had the crab soup (simply awesome delicious!) and the bacon wrapped scallops - so yummy! Our meals were just scrumptious! We loved every bite! I will be back again and again!

This restaurant is very nice and there are a lot of seafood options. Just make sure you read the fine print. There are several seafood dishes on the menu that have bacon. Just tell them to remove the bacon. I wasn't too crazy about the bread pudding. It had a sponge like texture. The soups are amazing!

What a delightful experience friend & I enjoyed on our first trip to Barrett's yesterday! I'm excited to have such pleasant, upscale dining venue in Bel Air. The staff are professional, friendly and accommodating. Our waitress Hailey provided superior, genuinely friendly service I n an attractive setting. The food was excellent, well prepared, delicious! We both had the kale salad. The salmon on.mine was the best I've had. Kudos to you all for a great lunch. May you prosper and become a permanent fixture in Bel Air!

This was our second time to Barrett’s On The Pike. The scallops wrapped in bacon and the crab and roasted corn were so good. Unfortunately the meatloaf was so dry the topping couldn’t even save it. My son’s filet was supposed to be cooked medium but came out much closer to well done. The worst part of dinner was we were seated in the bar area right behind the server portals and the trash can for the bar. The bottles getting thrown into the trash can certainly didn’t left a lot to be desired with all the clanking of glass on glass. In my mind they had to be the worst seats in the house. When I said something to the manager walking around , he said I should be happy with the energy going on as he proceeded to throw a empty bottle in the trash can and not even give a thought about what I had just said to him. Needless to say he avoided us the rest of our visit and saw us as we left and never said another word to us. He wasn’t concerned about our dinning experience and totally showed it.

This is my third time having brunch at Barretts on the Pike and I truly enjoyed it yet again. They have not missed! I always get a Mimosa with Pineapple Juice instead of OJ and it's always nice, bubly, and strong. ;) I made my own omelet with Lump Crab meat, peppers, cheddar, and old bay and it was amazing. Our server was very attentive. I will definitely return.
