This place has gone down hill over the last 15 years. I know you DIE HARDS love it, but this is Gourmet Nursing home food at best. The atmosphere is nice and the landscape is divine, but the food is bland and right from the "tub".

Haven't been to this place in maybe 15 years, but decided to stop for lunch. Can't get the buffet at lunch. You can only get the soup/salad bar or order off the lunch menu. Both my wife and I ordered the creamed chicken on biscuits . So we got 4 halves of biscuits with very little creamed chicken on it.... More

22 of us met at the Barn for dinner and some quality family time. The food was amazing and the wait staff couldn't have been nicer. Of course we all had to have pie for desert which is one their specialties (all wonderful) and then the gift shops beckoned. Don't ask me how they could eat more but some of... More

We were new to the area and work associates gave us tips on where and where not to try for a taste of the country side of Smithville / Wooster / Lodi / Medina. The Barn is truly a walk back in time with home-made bread, jams, and quilts and farm artifacts everywhere! We were having an early dinner, there... More

they have a wonderful selection of salads, and sandwiches, but the big surprise is the great salad bar. everything from the greens to several desserts. They have a bread counter where you can get their honey butter. The atmosphere is also unique in that it was an actual barn. They have a seating area with a lot of nostalgic items.... More

This is a nice local place to eat in this converted barn in a rural setting. A soup and salad bar is the mainstay here. The soups are very good and the salad is ok but a little limited in choices. They offer corn bread, rolls and homemade breads to go with the soup/salad bar and include a honey peanut... More

You can always count on that if you've found the place where the locals eat, your going to have a good meal. Wife and I had the salad/soup/bread buffet and were not disappointed. Had three of the six soups offered and all were excellent. The salad bar was expansive and all fresh. Had corn bread from the bread bar along... More

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
