I got a group together to visit Ramseyer Farm for the afternoon and planned the buffet dinner at the Barn. They don't take reservations, so our group of 15 showed up and had to wait. But considering it was 6:30 on a Saturday night, a 30 minute wait for our group wasn't bad. We all enjoyed the buffet - HUGE... More

We drove about 30 minutes to The Barn for lunch on the recommendation of a friend. The waitress was extremely efficient and friendly. I had the salad bar ($12.95), my husband had the pulled pork sandwich. The salad bar was adequate but nothing to write home about and certainly not worth the drive. The soups came with the salad bar... More

Bit of a drive to this location in Smithville, but a nice one through smaller highways, towns, some Amish areas depending on which direction you come from to visit. We live near Philadelphia but when in Ohio our base is Akron. Markets and antiques or farm shops between this and urban locations, so always a pleasant journey. Decor is farm... More

Have been here several times over the years. Great place for a large group to use the buffet downstairs. Absolutely love the decor. Downstairs buffet is not too bad, nor is the upstairs buffet. Wish they had a larger menu for the buffet upstiars. I tried to order a grilled ham and cheese to go along with the soup and... More

I've gone to The Barn for years with my parents and now with my kiddos! We mainly stick to the amazing salad wagon and 5 soup buffet. Everything is always fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is wonderful. I suggest that you take 3 hrs minimum when coming to really enjoy the lake and feeding the ducks/fish. A family dining must,... More

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
