Although it was nighttime at time of arrival the inviting grounds were brilliantly luminated. Inside the front doors I was treated to unexpected luxury - from pre-dinner drinks and then on to my dining experience wow what a night. I have never seen such an expansive wine list and the menu mouth watering. Best steak I have ever eaten coupled... More

The Barn Steakhouse is an institution in Mount Gambier has become renowned for quality food, service and wine. Having dined here many times I can assure you that the steaks are the best I've had anywhere in the world. Make sure you leave room for the chocolate pudding dessert... I always look forward to dinner at The Barn.

Been coming here 4 or 5 times a year for 40 years and always love it. It's quiet and warm - try for a table near the log fire - and the menu retains all the old favourites with a few specials. Service is deft and fast, serves are large but we eat every scrap. Recommend garlic bread as a... More

As we walked in, we were greeted with a busy but quiet restaurant - almost felt a little bit too quiet for the 6 of us - but as we were taken to our table, we were made to feel right at home by the staff. We settled in, selected the Majella 2010 at the recommendation of the waitress and... More

If you enjoy good steak, The Barn is a Must Stop. They serve their own beef in an elegant setting with rustic décor of wood beams and cattle pics. They have a dozen steak choices from ribeye to prime. The speciality is a Wagyu filet "served best without sauce." As a Oklahoma/Texas lady raised on local beef, I have to... More

This complex is a few kilometres out of Mount Gambier so a car or taxi is required. Alternatively accommodation is available onsite. We have dined at the Barn several times previously, so it was a logical choice for a very special Birthday getaway. We booked overnight in the Premier spa suite and had dinner at the steakhouse. Our package included... More

There is no other restaurant in Mount Gambier that I would recommend more than the Barn. The food and service is always five star, the steak and chocolate pudding is a dream and they have the most amazing locally roasted coffee!

This is the place for steak. I generally avoid steak on menus because I dont want to pay big bucks for disappointment. Two meals here, two crackers. Too much choice but I had the fillet mignon and the gorgonzola pocketed; both great. Good wine list and warm fire for those cold Mount Gambier evenings.

About 5km out of town is the Barn. The moment you drive up the driveway you feel like your in a posh retreat. The staff are friendly & accommodating. Prices for rooms are very good. I managed to get a business package which included breakfast for a great price. The rooms are modern & very comfortable. It is a peaceful... More

Description
We select the best export quality beef available in the country. Our preference is for beef that is finished on grass as this provides meat with maximum flavor, just as nature intended. What we do differently at the Barn is that we age our beef on the premises for 8 weeks or longer. When you consider the work, the cost, the waste, is it really worthwhile to age beef for a long time? Most people and places say beef is aged when it is two weeks old. Like great wines that improve for 50 years, great beef gets sweeter, more tender and acquires a taste that cannot be duplicated except with proper aging.
