After reading the reviews for this place and driving 8 hours my boyfriend and I were excited to try this place for his birthday dinner. We got there an hour before close and were completely un-impressed. The service absolutely sucked. The waiter was so rude and barely said two words the whole time, not sure what his deal was. My...

BBQ Barn has been there for many years. Had great hamburgers when eating there as a child. Used to be Turners Restaurant. Now known for their BBQ. Decent salad bar also available. Would definitely recommend.

Love this place, from the friendly owner and manager, the décor (very charming and appropriate) and the BBQ! Dry rub is the best, and they do it right. Breakfast is delicious and you can tell it's 'Homemade'. The mile high pies are hard to resist! Just a wonderful place, and an institution in Harrisburg.

They've always had a... More

When you hear about the bar b q barn restaurant, you get what you think. Barbecue, homemade pies, great service. The decor is great. A lot of old history and items posted along the walls. If you need a place for a party, they have a side room available. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place....great people own it.

We had Bar-B-Q Barn on our way out of town. Forgive the pun, but my husband was in hog heaven. We were greeted in the foyer by a bakery display holding slices of pie, fresh baked cookies, and other pastries. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich (by recommendation from our waitress), and I had the BBQ chicken salad. It... More

We got there late in the evening. We enjoyed the barbeque and the different sauces. Our waitress was pleasant and gave us good service. It isn't on the main drag, but it is worth looking for.

This place also has cream horns in the case that are the best I have ever eaten. You must try them for desert. The ribs are very good also.
