The Barn restaurant in Smithville, Ohio is really 2 restaurants in one. On the top floor you get a good view and order from the menu. There is also a salad bar. On the basement floor is a buffet. I prefer the buffet. This is a fun, yet somewhat expensive place to eat and visit. Please be aware, though, that... More

I go here with Clients and other employees all the time to eat. Its by far one of the best Salad and Soup Lunches around. Blows all other out of the water. Great Food, Nice People. I suggest the broccoli cheese soup and the peanut butter spread on the bread bar. My Favs

Atmosphere is good, food is basic Amish style food. Large salad bar with good selection. Overprices for what you get.

The food is simple. I really enjoyed the huge salad bar (The Salad Wagon) - which includes choices of soup and choices for bread. The bean soup and cornbread alone were worth the trip. The cornbread is yummy.

When I started dating an Ashland County girl way back, she suggested this place to me for a different place to go out to eat. We went, and I was so impressed that I would eventually see my family & some friends make the lengthy drive just to check it out. It has the feel of an Amish business, but... More

It's a half way point from Mansfield to Elyria and a perfect place to meet my dad. Plus he really enjoys the food

The salad wagon (buffet) and soup/bread bars were in dire need of attention the entire time we dined. I don't like getting my... More

This used to be our go-to salad bar place- we went all the time. Then about a year ago two of us got sick after eating there. I miss the place, but I'm not sure if I miss it enough to risk being that sick again. On the other hand, all of the non-salad bar food was always very good.

The Barn is an interesting place to have dinner. The atmosphere is rustic with an Amish flare. We had a large and they can easily accommodate for parties of 20 or more. We had the buffet and all the food was good. The cookie dough brownie was the best. There is definitely something there for any appetite. Make sure you... More
