“Decent Food Fair Price”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We eat at the Old Barn Out Back several times a year. It's not fine dining but who expects that from a buffet? The food is good, the service is generally good, and the price is fair. I enjoy the Sunday Brunch. It includes all of their breakfast items plus their dinner items and deserts. With exception of one or two, their pies are great.

The food is average, this last time I had breakfast buffet and it was good, but generally the food is just OK but the help was fine.

“buffet”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Things seem to taste average. Not big on buffets. The food line is usually kept clean. Service ok. Little pricey for salads and casaroles.

“OK, but not great.”
Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

Phizbin's 8/30/12 review sums it up: OK, but not great. I used to dread when our office in Wapak decided to go there for lunch. A long drive (not a convenient location) for mediocre food. Service is good, but shouldn't "home cooking" be at least as good, or preferably better, then what you can make at home?

“OK - but needs some help”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Sometimes its best to say nothing at all, but I think the Old Barn needs some help.

The food is OK, but not great. The service is OK, but not great. The decor is OK, but not great.

That being said - everyone can find something on the menu they like - but the kids aren't screaming to go back. I may be jaded - but I never understood "home cooking". When I go out to eat - I expect the food to be better than I can make at home...
