Reviewed June 30, 2012

The food is always very good. Steaks cooked the way they should be. Onion soup is the best. Hazelnut martini tasty.

“Great people at The Barnsider.”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

I truly love the Barnsider. The food is reasonably priced, always excellent quality, and cooked right. I especially love the prime rib and the augratin potatoes with a house salad with the house vinaigrette. YUM! The staff, most of them have been there forever, they know what's going on and how to treat customers. I go there whenever I am north.

“It was OK”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

We had a reservation but it still took a while to get seated. Service was pretty good, food was just OK. That was the opinion of everyone in the group. Steaks weren't cooked quite to order, the onion soup was overly salty, and the au gratin potatoes were close to something that came from a box. The highlight of the night was the bartender, she was an older lady and made the best drinks I have had it quite some time. She was funny and friendly and working hard for her customers.

“Only been for Sunday Brunch, but just okay.”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

I've only been to Barnsider for Sunday brunch, but it was just okay. It was an $8.95 buffet, and you get exactly what you might expect for the money. It was a small buffet, with a couple of breakfast casseroles, eggs, potatoes, and bacon/sausage. The casseroles and potatoes were really good, the rest of the food was equivalent to a continental breakfast at a hotel. The service was pretty good, but they also weren't that busy. Barnsider is supposed to have some of the best Prime rib in Dayton, but we probably won't be going back. It's a ways from our house, in a pretty bad area, and could use some updating inside ... but I can't say that it's not worth trying either though.
