Give it a try!

The lower level of the Barn is buffet style and the upper level is a salad wagon and resturant style with menu ordering. We were there a few times but it's nothing to get too excited about. We dined in the buffet and restaurant levels both. The salad bar is the best choice. A very nice place to... read more

Ate upstairs, all you can eat soup, salad, and bread (blueberry, cornbread, whole wheat and white all homemade with honey butter, home made peanut butter or Apple butter). Five different soups, included chili, chicken, bean, vegetable, broccoli noodle, and lots of choices on the salad bar. Also some dessert's on the salad bar and fresh fruit. No room for pie... More

The Barn is owned by the same family that owns Dravenstotts in Orrville, OH. That being said, the food is similar in both restaurants. The Barn is actually a restored barn, that has been turned into a restaurant. You can enjoy your meal looking out over the pond full of ducks and geese(which you can also feed). I enjoy their...

The Barn is a beautiful all around--both the building at the location. Their "Salad Wagon" is extensive, and you get your choice of salads, soups and various breads. Everything tastes fresh and homemade. My only issue is that apart from maybe a salad, the menu offers virtually nothing that is low-fat or low-sodium; apart from possibly the tilapia, it is... More

Pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Barn. We loved the decor - my kids loved the ring game, tractor and checkers in the waiting area. We were quickly seated and decided on the salad wagon (which also soup and bread table) and a sandwich. Lots to choose from on the salad bar. I loved the broccoli cheddar soup (it... More

It has been a number of years since we've been to The Barn, in the past we always thought of it as having a great salad/soup bar, so we decided to take an autumn drive there again. The salad bar was good, however some items not as flavorful as in the past, such as the potato salad, cole slaw, and... More

I have eaten at The Barn restaurant (and worked there as a teen) since in opened. The salad bar is huge with many fresh vegetable and additional salad choices along with fresh, home made soups and breads. It is my favorite thing to order when I visit though they also have other standard choices; others love the swiss steak (I'm... More

We met some friends for dinner and enjoyed it so much that we came back two days later with the family. The salad bar is the best around and always clean and chilled.

It's a beautiful place. You overlook a large pond. The dining room is giant. We went on a Sunday with 25 people, and they had no problem getting us in. We only waited about 20 minutes. The buffet is very good. Salad bar, bread bar, dessert bar. Main dishes of fried chicken, roast and all the normal sides. Enjoyed it... More
