“Barn = The best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

This place I would highly recommend to anyone for a good ol meal. The atmosphere was awesome, loved the old music playing and all the memorabilia to look at while we ate. It gave us good conversation.
The young waiter was amazing. Such a down to earth dude with excellent service, he is a tru asset. We will definitely be coming back to the Barn.

“Dreadful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

We chose the "Barn" for dinner as the menu outside looked promising, however we left after our
entree's. My pate' was the worst ever and the melba toast only cooked on one side so was limp instead of crisp. My husbands shrimp cocktail was made up of freezer burnt shrimps so tough they were inedible. We won't be back.

“A+ you gotta pop in here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

Reminds me a little of cob n co bak in the day, the owner must like Dr Hook which was playing in the background. I had the lamb burger and my partner had ribs both meals were amazing compliments to the chef. Service by our young waiter fantastic. Would highly recommend this cafe big time. Thx will visit again.
