Whenever we travel and stop in Maryland to visit family, we always make reservations at Barrett;s because the food is so good. Arrived a couple of minutes before the reservation time and were seated promptly. Our server was very efficient, but not overbearing. We enjoyed our cocktails and did not feel rushed to order our entrees. Our favorite is the short ribs, which once again were excellent.. We also ordered our second favorite, which is the scallops. And once again, excellent. Nice wine list as well. Great meal.
