We hosted my son's rehearsal dinner at the Rustic Barn. Jodi made the process so easy. Our dinner was a buffet: Caesar salad, rolls, coleslaw, garlic mashed, pulled pork, chicken franchise, macaroni and cheese, and a veggie platter for an appetizer. Also included soda, coffee,...More

This is just a bar. Dark and no atmosphere but the staff is very friendly. The fried chicken is the best north of the Masón Dixon: fresh and perfectly fried. Not greasy or over spiced. The onion rings and French onion soup were very bland...More

I was actually surprised by how good this was. We went for lunch. Good homemade salads and the fries were not the generic personality-less ones. The best surprise was the chocolate cake. OMFG. I have wanted good cake for months. This was what I was...More

Once we received our food, it actually wasn't too bad. It basically took 1 full hour to receive our order even though we were maybe 10 people in total in the pub who ordered food. And we are talking about fast food orders like chicken...More

I am so sorry the waitress / bartender should have told you that it takes 20 minutes for chicken wings. We do not precook our wings, which makes them really good but takes longer. We have hired more help so our service is much better...More
