The salad bar is a full meal in itself. Fresh vegetables, fruits, soups, and breads! It's the only thing I've ever gotten here and will probably order the same next time.

Scenery is beautiful. This place is really a hidden treasure. The food is really good and the prices are right. It was fun to look at all the antiques. Service was top notch. Drinks served in Mason jars-nice touch!

We were so excited to eat lunch at this neat-looking former dairy barn. What a great location, and the kids loved feeding the ducks and geese! However, when it was time to sit down and eat, the waitress seemed less-than-eager to wait on us. It was not at all busy (we were there for a late lunch on a weekday),... More

This was once an actual dairy barn that has been transformed into a family-friendly restaurant where you can order off the menu upstairs, buffet is downstairs, and a large salad "wagon" with a variety of toppings and salads. There is a pond where you can feed ducks and geese as well as a gift shop in the farmhouse, a bulk... More
