Spent last weekend in Bethel and picked here to eat dinner on Saturday night with my wife and niece. Food was all really good and the atmosphere was relaxed. Ordered pasta and Prime Rib and everyone was pleased.

Noisy bar and restaurant with standard fare adequately prepared and moderately priced. Thursday prime rib for $15 is the best value on offer. Very limited wine offerings.

The funky red barn is exactly how it sounds. You eat at the picnic tables and cafeteria style chairs the atmosphere is definitely rustic. They have a bar with an extensive beer wine and liquor list. They have specials on different nights of the week....More
