This place was a quick stop on our way to Branson. I thought the regular menu item prices seemed a little high, but I didn't actually see anyone order from the menu. The big draw is the buffet. For only a dollar or two more than the menu items, they serve several meat options, soup, chili, sides, salads and DESSERT!... More

We had the BBQ buffet recently and really enjoyed the food. This was food like my grandmother made. Green beans and negotiators, pinto beans, baked beans, mashed potatoes and gravy. Meat selection were ribs, pulled pork, brisket, chicken, fried chicken, and catfish. Nothing fancy but good and filling. With hot rolls the size of saucers and pies and cakes that... More

From steak to 1/2 fried chicken this place has hands down the best cooking in the area! Great, friendly hospitality that you can't beat. Lots of food, for a great price; And don't leave without trying the deserts.

My husband and I ate lunch at the Red Barn last Saturday and yes it was our first and last visit. I have to admit it was a festival weekend and very busy but no excuse for bad food and service. First of all, even though there was a table available, they tried to get us to share a table... More

Fortunately, the Red Barn is bigger o the inside than it looks from the outside or it could not hold the swarms of people who head there for tasty home cooking. Located on Business Route I-44, a traveler hardly has to spend any extra time to pull over and get some serious food rather than the usual fast food fare.... More

This was our first ever visit to Red Barn. We went following friends who had posted pictures on FaceBook of the pastries and desserts. Red Barn is one of those one-of-a-kind restaurants that are few and far between today. When you walk in, you see the pastry and dessert case, filled with pies, cakes and cinnamon rolls. They were all... More

Family stopped in for lunch in between football games. Good food and LOTS of it. We could have ordered an entree to split between my husband and I! If you are in Mt. Vernon go visit!

Back in the early nineties I stopped here and had the open-faced roast beef sandwich; it covered the whole plate. And of course I had to have dessert which was an apple dumpling and it was huge ! If you're headed up to Chicago on I-44 you have to stop here!!! You definitely will get filled up! !

Can have buffet, or order off of menu. Red Barn offers a variety of food and desserts. Each day has a "special". Offers a salad and dessert bar. Check out the buffet and salad bar for freshness before decide to eat from it. Sometimes "fresh", other times doesn't seem so fresh. Service is fine.

We love stopping into the Red Barn when we pass through Mt Vernon. We had breakfast there on Labor Day. The breakfast bar is small but it has everything you need. Eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy. My wife asked for two OE eggs and they were brought out just as we filled our plates from the breakfast bar. The service... More
