I brought my wife and daughter to Barrett's on the Pike for my wife's birthday. This was our second time to Barrett's and once again everything was perfect. From the appetizers, to the main meals to our dessert, everything was great. Jenna was our waitress and she was perfect. We enjoyed everything. As constructive criticism, we saw online before we visited the bar menu and the appetizers there included a choice that wasn't on the dining room menu. However it was what we wanted so we asked Jenna if that was possible and they said yes! Perhaps include that on the dining room menu since it increased our choices. By the way the appetizer was great! We love the place and give it our highest possible recommendation. We plan on trying the Sunday brunch next as we expect it will also be superb.

Stunning meal! My friend and I ordered half the menu to celebrate. Each appetizer or entree was exquisitely presented with a bouquet of wonderful flavors. We had a great night there.

The only thing I didn't like was the assumption that I'd want to be seated in the bar section.
But they happily moved us when we asked.
I would recommend this place.

Overall, it was a good experience at Barrett's on the Pike in Bel Air, MD. Two things were bothersome that could have been avoided. First, they ignored our request, made at the time of our reservation, to be seated in a booth. Instead, they seated us at a table in the middle of the dining room. Secondly, a brownie ice cream sundae that was ordered for dessert came topped with two tablespoons of ice cream. If it's not an ice cream brownie sundae, they should not advertise it as one.

It’s been a couple of years since I have been to Tark’s. We came because of the smoke out door dining. They have renovated the restaurant and menu. The food was delicious and service was great.

While Bel Air has a host of chain restaurants and many other places that offer your typical pub grub/bar food, Barrett's on the Pike offers a finer dining feel with amazing food at reasonable prices that are comparable to many of the chains in the area. Perfect date night location as you can enjoy your evening without being rushed out the door.

All my friends told me to check this out and I went the other night. Wow, they did not lie. This place does not disappoint. Some of the best food I've ever had. I love that it's so close to my house because I plan to go often. I would suggest making reservations because it seemed to be a popular place but I got seated right away because I had a reservation.

The bacon-wrapped scallops are great to start/share. My wife had a scallops entree which she gets every time we go. The mushroom risotto that comes with it is amazing. I had the braised short ribs which were absolutely fabulous. The server was great and the kitchen is fast. We love coming here and will continue to do so!

Valentines dinner was excellent. First the manager kindly switched my reservation for two to three. We were promptly seated and our service just got better. Drinks were the good kind of well made and our dinner was just what we had hoped for. Just a good experience for my party of 3. We will be back. Halibut and crab imperial were delish. Bread pudding ridiculous! Well done!

We came to Barrett's on the Pike for the first time around Valentine's Day. There were two couples in our party. We found everything great! From the service, to the food, to the atmosphere, we enjoyed it all. We all had something different to eat and everyone loved it. The desserts were great also! I've already planned a return reservation for my wife's birthday and I'm very much looking forward to it.

Meal was mediocre at best. For the price there are many other options. Tables and booths reminded me of a diner/Bob Evans. Our server was poorly prepared. Did not know what drafts were on the taps. Not a very good experience but we tried something new.

When we made our reservation, there was a box which allowed you to identify an occasion if applicable. Since it was our 39th anniversary, we clicked "anniversary" . We mentioned it again while being greeted and seated. "Wow, that's a long time" was the response and that was the last thing ever mentioned. We usually try and go someplace different every year on that date. This is the 1st time in memory that the restaurant didn't provide some token of congratulations for the occasion.

The food tasted fine. We shared everything as we usually do. Later in the evening (actually 1:30 AM the next morning) we both awoke at the same time with stomach discomfort and great thirst. We don't think it was a coincidence.

Our waitress was very pleasant and accommodating and we realize these are very unusual times. So we're taking that into consideration. But the bottom line is that opinion is very neutral.
