“Will not be back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2011

We went to the Green Barn on our way home from Boston. WE have been going there for many years but there is a noticable change in management. We had two dinners and two drinks $75.00 We should have eaten in the North End. We will not be back. Way too expensive for Salem NH.

“The inexpensive online menu should have been my clue.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011 via mobile

Very disappointed. It was the type of day for German comfort food. There are large gaps in what they offer. The sauces were like canned gravy I had poork loin that was dry and overcooked. Mediocre pot roast was billed as sauerbraten.

“Tasty Food and Very Polite Servers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2010

After waiting about 10-15 min for a seat (reservations are suggested), we were seated in a booth against the rear wall. Nice waitstaff and hostess. Food was plentiful and VERY tasty. Competive pricing. The interior is nothing fancy, quite aged, but comfy.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2008

Do you like Knorr-like sauces and canned vegetables? Then this is your place. Aging local restaurant needs updating throughout including the menu. I love German food and it's hard to find in this area but this is not the place to get it. Pity because the wait staff seemed friendly enough and it is relatively clean for it's age. But i will have to keep looking for a good German restaurant in Southern NH and Northern MA. Oh yeah, the Spaten was skunky.
