Soup & Salad-Bar

I was here with members of my family. All of us had the soup & salad bar except one younger person who had a cheese burger. There was a waiting line even at 2 PM on Sunday. We all enjoyed our choices. There is also a large Buffet in the basement if you are looking for something heaver.

While recently visiting the Amish area of Wayne County Ohio for our store in Virginia, Clinch Mountain Amish Furniture & More, we were told of this restaurant. It was a little out of the way of the area we generally travel in so we had never heard of it. Was really just a short drive and very well worth the... More

After a morning at stopping at Spencer and Homerville yard sales, we headed to Smithville to the Antiques Market that was being held on the grounds of the Mishler Weaving Mill. We were getting really hungry so we stop at The Barn since it was on our way home. They put us on a 10 minute wait but once we... More

The drinks are included in the price unlike golden corral. The chicken was dry, but the staff was friendly.

This unique restaurant is right in my backyard so I have eaten here many times. It is a must visit when we have friends and family come in from out of town. It is an actual barn that they have filled with quilts, antique farm implements and mason jars that they serve your ice tea in. Try the great "salad... More

We eat at The Barn a couple of times a year, enjoying the countryside ride from Akron. Tonight we enjoyed the all-you-can-eat soup/salad/bread bar meal. In all the times I've visited over the past 23 years, I don't think I've had one of their many 'meals' (entrees). The salad bar is very good, altho I would have liked a few... More

Why do people rave about buffet restaurants?! We ate here on a Sunday afternoon and the price was $15.49 per person. We were here years ago and I'm sure it wasn't that much. It is all inclusive, unlike some places that charge extra for the drinks. There is a good variety of meats on the hot food table: swiss steak... More

The food is always delicious. Have had many meals here, including the buffet and everything is wonderful. We usually sit where there is a view of the lake. The atmosphere is charming.

I just came from eating at the barn restaurant and found it to be very good tonight. I would say most of the people that come here have dined here before and know what they are getting. That is why they go back. I had the salad wagon and it was plentiful as always. The soups were hot and filled... More

Quaint restaurant--could use some updating. Beautiful view. Soup is good most of the time, but I wouldn't get a meal. Big mistake. Sides are horrible. The bread bar is often stale and unkept (or empty). There is usually a manager who hides behind a little station up front and barely speaks to people when they come in. Some of the... More
