The servers are sweet. There are no frills about the sweet tea served. What makes this place is its buffet. There is loads of food to choose from.... From entrees to desserts. Don't miss this place if you are in the Wayne County area.

I hadn't been to this place in years but a friend came to town and had remembered it as being a place she loved. The food was not as we'd remembered. The mushroom burger that used to be in a really nice bun with fresh meat and dripping with fresh mushrooms was no longer the same. And the broccoli soup... More

My son got tilapia dinner for $9.50 and I got a turkey bacon club for $6.00. Both very good. Its in a big old barn that's been updated and turned into a... More

I used to frequent this restaurant with my family years ago. Was back in town and we decided to take a trip down memory lane with my new husband accompanying us. I ordered the salad bar, as did he. I should probably mention at this point that he is a vegetarian and as such, couldn't order anything on the regular... More

My family and I have been going to the Barn for several years, and went again on Oct.15, for the first time in a few years. The hiatus is, for us, because it's almost an hour drive, not because the food is bad. There are several shops and that wonderful lake to look at. We always save those for later,... More

This is a great place for a family meal. The upper level has a great salad and soup bar and you can order from the menu. The lower level is all buffet but has everything from salad to hot entrees - something for everyone!

This place has a lot going for it. Beautiful grounds with a lake, ducks and swings for the kids. A huge dining hall with choice of hot buffet or order off the menu. A large cold salad bar and good bread selection. But in the end, it lets you down. Cost cutting is evident in the barely average quality of... More

.Went with a group of about 50 people on a bus trip. The efficiency and friendliness of the waitress was terrific. Our waitress very efficiently delivered our drinks (& refills) as well as our meals. I wasn't terribly impressed with my meal ( the mashed potatoes were reconstituted) but in fairness to handle a group this big in a limited... More

If you are anywhere near Wayne County, Ohio, be sure to check out this HUGE landmark restaurant. It captures the whole look, feel and flavor of this world-renowned agricultural community all in one very cool place. Their endless country buffet has something for everyone, and so much of it that if you go away even the least bit hungry, it's... More
