Description: With a fresh, de rigueur exterior of barn-red paint, the interior expresses the warmth of a local tavern, using clean lines and a rustic feel. Accented with oak, restored branded wood beams, a white paneled ceiling and wrought iron lighting, the L-shaped room is refreshed, with higher ceilings and massive glass windows that open the space. As before, there is an open display kitchen observing the chefs at work. Newly created for the restaurant is a glass-enclosed wine room flanking the dining room that co-exists with two wood-burning fireplaces preserved from the original Red Barn. Firewood is supplied by the Agin Brothers, the family that has serviced the Nichols family with seasoned wood for ten years. Two wrought iron and rope chandeliers, hand crafted by local blacksmith Hans Duus, illuminate the room and are lighted with replicas of vintage Edison light bulbs, with more of the Edison-styled glass globes accenting the room. The walls are decorated with historical photographs of Los Rancheros Visitores, the club of local horsemen and ranchers dating back to 1929. Salvaged during the construction was wallpaper discovered under layers of paint and paneling, beautifully illustrated with dancing girls, pistols, playing cards and saloons, now preserved, framed, and gracing the dining room walls. JC's handsome bar was created by locals Scott and Chris Bruhn who used a felled pine tree salvaged from Figueroa Mountain to form the expansive bar top.

First off, there is nothing bad on the menu. Try one of the hamburgers for lunch or my favorite prime rib for dinner.

Don't let the building or interior design fool you! This was an exceptional meal - quality food, well prepared, attentive service. The steaks and seafood were top quality and cooked exactly to order. Desserts were scrumptious

Inside is a bit dated and not where I would want to go for a romantic or special occasion. For family, or a great steak after wine tasting, it is spot on!

I have eaten here many times, and I have never gotten anything less than a superb meal. This is some of the best prime rib that I’ve ever had. The steaks are fantastic. The bread selection that they give you before the meal is an absolutely incredible! And to top it off, the mud pie is out of this world! It is rather expensive, but worth it.

WOW what a restaurant! From all the restaurants I have been to this rates in the top 3. The food is incredible, quality and preparation is A1. Me and my wife visited the Red Barn during one of our many stays in the Santa Ynez Valley and we ordered the Scallops w/ brown rice and vegetables special and the Pork Chop w/bacon mashed potatoes and green beans. The service top notch and I recommend reservations. This is a $$$ restaurant so expect to spend some $$$. Please enjoy!
