I had always heard Barnett's was a good place to eat. I ordered the seafood combination and it tasted and looked like it had been warmed over.

Stuffed flounder that another had was said to be very good. Fried Shrimp were also said to be very good. While the shrimp were being eaten the waitress came and told us... More

Ate here today for our anniversary. Haven't been here since 1994. We had shrimp and oysters platter. Fries and baked potato. Salad. It was EXCELLENT! Fresh salad, great tasting and large shrimp. Tasty fresh oysters. Texas toast and rolls. I can't wait to go back again. Friendly staff and waitress. We'll be back soon.

Lots of seafood on the menu I had the fish of the day which was snapper, Wife had the fried shrimp. Both were fine. Very popular place with the locals had lines... More

This was our first return visit to Barkett's since the late 1990s or early 2000s. The food quality has not changed. We both had fried oysters and they were great. The complaint I have is the service. The restaurant was very busy (Saturday night). We had to wait a long time to have our order taken and then waited a... More

We had a party of 15, no problem, but make a reservation if it's the weekend. I had fish (red) blackened, my wife had the fried shrimp, between the 15 of us we tried most of the menu EVERYONE said the meal was great, I agree, very good food and really great service.
