“Lots of shops but a little pricey!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I live here in the area and it is not a place I shop for every day things. There are mostly unique shops that you can't find in usual shopping areas, but, if you like to explore and look for those unique places, this is the place.

“Nice restaurants”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

The Barnyard has some nice restaurants. Our favorite was From Scratch! There are some stores and charity re-sale shops. Plus, you can rent bikes right there. The landscaping is beautiful which makes it a nice area to find a bench and drink a cup of coffee.

We loved the Swiss and Japanese restaurants -- look for the windmill, and both of them are right there!

“Jewelry, Clothes, and Food for Days!”

We drove to the Barnyard for an excellent seafood lunch, then visited several jewelry stores and shops. Lots to offer anyone who likes to browse and eat!

“Easy to miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Not exactly the easiest place to find, the Barnyard Shopping Village is a cute stop with a nice mix of restaurants and jewelry stores. Unfortunately there are also a lot of empty stores, a sign of the times. Among the unusual are a tack shop and a store filled with miniatures.
