Mango guacamole is very good! Not much of a choice but you go there for the view and ambiance! The people and the wait staff at every nice too!

We dined here for lunch. We had a reservation but it was really not needed for this time of year. The history of the barn was very interesting to learn about. This restaurant also had impressive views. Our waiter was great. He was very friendly and attentive. He kept an eye on our drinks and was very good about checking... More

Ordered beef enchiladas and wife had chicken enchiladas. Both were cold on arrival. Just a few small pieces of meat in each, and tortillas were hard edged. Certainly not worthy of the price. Do not recommend.

Friendly service, nice setting and good food, however I feel it is somewhat overpriced. We ate lunch here, not a large menu but tasty food. Taco salad is good as is the enchilada and hamburger.

I am a big Palmer Fan so going here was not an option. We are staying at Big Cedar and this was 10 minutes away. The property is beyond gorgeous, and when it is completed it will be a little bit of Heaven on earth. The barn itself is beautiful. The food was quite good. Instead of Mexican I got... More

My husband and I recently had lunch here and enjoyed it. The view is fantastic. The tacos were good and the service was as well. We would like to bring our kids back to check out the museum that is on site.

The view is spectacular and the bartender was great. Wonderful place for a long leisurely lunch. The cheese dip was great and the Guac's were ALL good!

We arrived a bit early for our weekend. Stopped by Arnie's Barn for a drink and appetizers. The menu is limited, but has enough to have a great meal. The view is second to none...very peaceful. A great way to start any stay at Big Cedar.

Visited on a nice warm January day! Food was just ok - limited choices! Prices a little high but I get it, you are paying for the view! Hostess who sat us was not friendly! We asked her several questions before we were seated which she answered in monotone with out cracking a smile! Staff and food was just ok... More

My only complaint about Arnie's Barn is that it seems like there is always a wait - but you always see tables open. They really need to hire more waitstaff! The food is excellent - the guacamole is fantastic and the staff are very friendly!
