“Great Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

The Barnsider has a nice atmosphere with a great salad bar. Their bar menu has some inexpensive items such as cajun chicken with veggies or rice. Complimentary popcorn and cheese and crackers in the bar area.

“Eat in the buckeye grill...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

A classic steakhouse....the price is as you would expect. The steaks are as you would expect. It has an old fashioned salad bar,
I like that. But here's what you need to know. I'd you eat in the buckeye grill. You will save 1/3 off the big room price. When you walk in turn right not left and save some money.

“Grill Area is the way to go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Love the cajun grilled chicken over greens as well as the cajun catfish if you are in the mood to eat on the lighter side. Great french fries too.

“Very good overall dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Family dinner to celebrate a birthday. Overall a very good dining experience. Quite busy for a weekday night, but service was still good. Food very good and portion sizes adequate. Expensive but at least sides were included in cost. Nice atmosphere and convenient location.
