My husband has been talking about trying this restaurant for quite a while now. We took a drive up from Blacklick yesterday and I was totally disappointed with this place. It is quaint and in a barn but it is kind of dirty looking. The "Old Time Salad Wagon" didn't have as much to offer as it appeared. There are... More

The Barn has been a family favorite for years...we eat, then feed the ducks, relax on a swing, and visit the shops. We love the toy store! Get the salad wagon and that's all you need for a meal (comes with bread and soups). Only gripe is we always wish they played music in the restaurant, but maybe we should... More

A recent motorcycle trip lead 25 of us to The Barn. We called ahead and were greeted and brought downstairs to our table for a pretty expansive buffet. Bottom floor is buffet only, Top floor is Menu only. I can't speak to the top floor, but our service and food on the bottom was exceptional. I never saw the bottom... More

the barn has everything...except the animals which is probably sanitary. They have great tasting food and friendly staff. You can even create a souvenir penny.

Had the chicken & biscuits and small salad bar. Friendly service hot and tasty food, small portion. Not over salted. Probably wouldn't schedule a trip there but would go back if in the area.

The restaurant is located in an old barn that has been converted into a nice looking restaurant inside. There is plenty of space for different-sized groups. The salad bar is pricey, but the variety is quite good. I found my sandwich to be very ordinary. If you are prepared to spend some money in a nice atmosphere with a wide... More

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
