“Underwhelmed”
Review of Barn Brasserie - CLOSED

Restaurant details
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We were excited to see a new restaurant in downtown Munice with a focus on seasonal ingredients with a county French twist. My wife and I stopped in for an early dinner and were disappointed. The restaurant has a pleasant "county" feel, and seasonal specials were offered but were not aggressively-priced relative to the regular menu. Our meals, light sandwich and soup selections, were well-prepared and tasty, but not exceptional in any way. Service was a little confused with staff milling-about at the front of the restaurant. Overall, and in comparison to other similar dining choices in downtown Muncie, prices seemed a little high for the value received. We may return, but Barn Brasserie is not on the top of our list of dining favorites in downtown Muncie.

We visited this restaurant last night with the understanding that Ball State students in the Athletic Department would get a 10% discount. She did on her $10 meal but our table that spent $93 did not. What marketing genious made that decision. Keep attracting the students because these parents will not return, and by the way they spend more than the students.

It was great to find a farm to table restaurant in Muncie, and one with good craft beer on tap. Should be much higher on the review list but it only opened a couple of months ago. Defintitely a solid place for parents of Ball State students. Casual atmosphere, wide assortment of choices from delicious burgers to more high end entrees. Ate here twice in one week. The menu changes every month so all I can say is that the scallops were delicious, as was the burger we had. Inventive but solid.

Very new restaurant to Muncie and an even newer concept. The food reaches past the comfort zone of many in the area, but I found the food to be well executed and tasty. The restaurant does not serve regular soda such as Pepsi or Coke products. This was a bit disappointing to our children. It was very busy the afternoon we dined, but we were well taken care of by the staff. There is most likely something on the menu for even picky eaters. I look forward to the changing menu as the locally sourced products change with the season.
