We took our kids on a sunny April weekend to the Barn. It was our first time there. We were seated quickly and our server greater us immediately. The prices were great for the kids menu. My husband and kids had ribs, and they loved them! They have a huge salad bar that has soups, breads and a wide array... More

Count on a good meal at the Barn. Sit by the window to watch the geese and ducks on the lake. The kids love walking around the lake. Walk to stores that sell Amish mixes and reasonably priced spices. Great afternoon.

We had been to the Smucker's store and wanted dinner. I've heard about this place for years and we decided to give it a try. Big Mistake. I had a half rack of ribs w/ fries and glazed carrots. That was $12 Then another $3.25 for a little bowl of salad and bread. The fries were barely cooked, the carrots... More

The food is served hot and the salad bar is kept fresh, three soups and several kinds of homemade breads: I enjoy the corn bread and the homemade chili. But their broccoli cheese soup is also great with any bread and honey butter. We shared an order of onion rings and they were delicious.! ( didn't have room to eat... More

A group of 6 of us went to The Barn for dinner over Columbus Day weekend. My grandma had seen an ad for the place somewhere and she was under the impression that it was Amish homemade cooking...boy was she wrong! I don't think there was a single piece of food in the place homemade. I've had better buffets at... More

We have gone to The Barn for over 30 years and have never had a poor experience. The food is always delicious, the view over the lake is relaxing. When our kids were small, sitting in the loft was a must as was feeding the fish and ducks after our meal. Trips to the farmhouse gift shop, the little food... More

At least once a year we drive over to meet relatives for dinner as it is a "half-way" spot for both of us. We decided to have the buffet. Our server was very good and they allowed us to bring a birthday cake in for a celebration. There was a nice variety on the buffet and the salad part is... More

Nice atmosphere if you like the rustic, barnlike decor. Food was just average. I ordered the roast beef dinner (which was on special that day), and it was shredded roast beef (very salty) with instant mashed potatoes. They weren't real mashed potatoes--I know the difference. They were watery and grainy. The people with me ordered the salad/soup bar, which looked... More
