We went on a Thursday afternoon and found ourselves to be the only ones there. There were several options for both food and drink. Portions were big. Everyone enjoyed their food, especially the pulled pork.

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,...and tea. We added on beer and wine. We brought our own desserts. Choice of linen colors was included, as was gratuity. Everything was very good, the chicken was outstanding. The service was wonderful, gracious and attentive. We had access to the room early in the day for decorating and were offered availability the day before! I'd love to have the ability to give the Rustic Barn a 4 1/2 star. Why can't I do that?? The ONLY downfall to the private banquet room was the trek to the bathroom on another floor. Made it difficult for seniors and a guest on crutches. Would highly recommend Rustic Barn for your private event!More

I'm giving this 2 stars because the fries were delicious. My fiance and i stopped for lunch at about 1230, 1pm on a Wednesday. No customers were there. I ordered the bbq sampler platter and he ordered the bacon cheese burger. We started with mozzarella...sticks and each had a beer. Although the bbq was ok there was little smoke ring and quite a bit of fat on the brisket and everything was smothered in sauce. His burger was really lacking. The patty itself was much smaller then the bun. He ordered medium rare and it was well done. They didn't have French onion soup... how that happens i don't know. And to add insult to injury, our bill came to $70+ FOR LUNCH!! Written on it was a note that tips have to be paid in cash, not by card. We left the little cash we had on us and left disappointed. I know it's a bar but that was ridiculous. I guess if we were drinking heavily we wouldn't have noticed the rip off.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...but the pizza and wings rival other good places in Troy area. Worth a visit. Come for the drinks and music too.More

Hello, I am confused with no atmosphere, you must have come on a slow day. We have a very lively atmosphere live music Thursday-Sundays and Trivia on Wednesdays. We are actually a Pub and Live Music Venue. Almost everything on our menu is Homemade and...More

GREAT place for live music! Jody and Jason have really been booking awesome bands. Great place for a meal, the pizza is fantastic, always enjoy ourselves whenever we visit. The bar is well stocked with a nice variety of craft beers and plenty of seating...is available.More

There was a band playing at 8, we got there at 7. They wanted to charge us a cover but we explained that we were only there for dinner and that we would be gone by 8. Service was slow, food was mediocre, they had...no desserts left for the day. I don't think that we will be back.More

We got 2 12 cut pizzas and 50 wings here over the weekend for a party. Food was just excellent. The wings were absolutely awesome! I've eaten there before - it's not a place I like for dine-in. But if you're in the area order...for take-out. The deliver only 3 days a week (Thurs, Fri, Sat). I wish they did delivery all week. I've tried their pulled pork topped potato skins before and they are great too. Oh ... just a note ... the 4 and 8 cut pizzas are round but 12 cut is rectangle. I prefer the circle (seems to be crispier), but rectangle is fine too. Crust is a little on the thicker side, but sauce and cheese taste really good.More

My husband and I went. We both thought the place was a bit dusty and it is very dark. Neither one of us cares for our food either.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...waiting for!More

Thank you! Really appreciate you taking the time to review!

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...wings, club sandwich, fries, etc. First time going there and the last time. Only reason I don't rate it lower than a "3" is because the quality of the food was ok.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
