I enjoyed a fabulous meal at the Barn on a sunday evening. It is vital to book, as it was rammed full for families enjoying themselves. The decor is an assault on the senses - every spare bit of wall has something adorning it, but it adds the experience. Pre food, we had a drink and chips with different dips, pickles, olives, as much as you can eat. However save room, as the meals are marvellous. The steaks are so so tender, very generous portions, cooked to perfection (I like mine rare and it was sliceable with a butter knife), great sides, salads and bread. It is a little expensive, but you know you've paid for quality. The service is attentive and enthusiastic, in line with so many places in the US. How I wish the UK would follow suit. The desserts looked fabulous, but a combination of too much steak and jetlag meant that I saw but did not indulge. If you like meat and you are in Raleigh, there is no better place to eat.
