I simply love this restaurant! The atmosphere is amazing and the buffet features home cooking like mom would make. Lots of great comfort food!! The buffet is a great value for the variety and quality of food choices available as well. My family has been here many times and we are never disappointed and always look forward to returning.

We went to the barn and had the evening buffet on a Saturday. The chicken was very tasty. Even though there were 4 parties of over 15 seated near us, the waitress was still attentive, courteous and warm. The buffet did not have a lot of variety on it, but food that was there was well made. The restaurant was clean and atmosphere was casual.

The fool was okay, nothing to get too excited about. Tasty chicken, the food wa a little bland for my palette. The children's Mac and cheese was Kraft, but that was okay.

There are several restaurants named "The Barn" within a few miles. This one is at the entrance to Sauder Village. Their specialty is fried chicken served buffet style with an excellent salad bar, low prices and very low lunch prices.

Always check the hours before driving out.

With rare exceptions, service is instantaneous, sit, order drinks and head to the food.

Quality is well above average, service is excellent. Lunch is under ten dollars, which, considering that you can eat food larger than your head, is dirt cheap.

The facility is a barn, moved to the location, cleaned up and worth looking at.

There is a menu, simple fare, properly prepared, also very inexpensive.

The atmosphere is rural, the crowd, rural, serious eaters, well mannered, good solid American farm folk.

There is no better place to drag granny or a pack of guests, especially if they are likely to eat you out of hearth and home.

The real star is excellent chicken, at about a third the cost of the same meal in Frankenmuth.

A nice drive from Monroe, Michigan. We had the buffet. Beautiful old barn. The food made me think of mom's Sunday dinner. Great tasting chicken and the soup was really good.
