Old country store.

Just because it's called the bean barn doesn't mean u have to purchase beans. They have great hamburger and crinkled fries! Can soda out the cold cooler. Seating is limited and hours are odd. Service is well go see for yourself...

This is a little out of the way somewhat understated (shabby) little building but it's worth hunting down. Not a lot of seating which is really basic and not very comfortable but you'll be glad you came. Old fashion cornbread to go with perfect soup beans and beef stew, both well seasoned. We came with friends who come here frequently... More

Fantastic food from hamburgers to beans all the way. Very nice to have lunch in such a quaint little restaurant. It is like going into an old country store.

This is an authentic Southern eatery that looks the same as it did in the 1940s. The general store venue you walk through on your way to the dining area is interesting, but really dusty. The place looks shabby inside and out, but the locals love it here. The beans and stew combination and burgers seem to be the favorite... More

We had a great lunch here. Several of us had the hamburger and french fries and one had the beans 'all the way' with corn bread. We also had dessert (I don't think the pies were homemade though so you might ask)... the atmosphere is like a smalltown cafe and has antiques all around... don't be in a hurry, enjoy... More

This is one of the few local eateries in Greeneville with homemade biscuits (not frozen). It is a family-run operations with a bit of history. It is set in an old general store and there is loads of old advertisements and merchandise to look at. It is almost a museum. The food is great and the staff are very friendly.... More

The Bean Barn is a great little place to enjoy lunch. Walking through the door is like going back in time to an old general store. My favorite lunch is a bowl of pinto beans sprinkled with onions and a big square of cornbread. If you aren't a bean eater, they also serve burgers and other sandwiches.

Although this was my second trip to the Bean Barn -- the first over a year ago -- I brought my husband with me this time. He LOVED it. We sat on stools at the counter, the best way to experience the vintage flavor of the family-run restaurant and have a chat with the owners. The menu is limited and... More

We planned a lunch stop in Greeneville on our way home from Nashville. I confess that the town was only on my radar because of The Band Perry, and I wanted to see the hometown that they talk about. We decided to eat at the Bean Barn after reading reviews on Tripadvisor and seeing it in an old Southern Living... More

The Bean Barn is one of the local favorites. Great burgers (with a toasted bun), fries, and a drink in a laid back atmosphere. I don't always get the beans, but when I do they are cooked to perfection.
