Unique "Barn" set up as a restaurant and a banquet hall. I agree to get there early to avoid waiting. Very popular place with the locals and tourists in the area. Food was fabulous (can still taste my steak as I type...mm-mm) Wait staff was friendly and enjoy the atmosphere. Can get very busy and crowded, especially if there's an... More

This is a combination restaurant/ banquet hall. The facility is very large and there are separate rooms and bars for restaurant and banquet customers. It is a nice cozy place. The main dining room is actually quite small. My wife and I were there at 5PM on Saturday, and were told there wold be a 30 minutes wait. The dining... More

Service is always friendly at The Barn. I suggest getting there early as it gets busy quickly. The Cod is always good-best in the PDC area. Everything on the menu has been a hit with our family. Finally, the salad bar is so good. Make sure you ration yourself-there's a lot there and it's so good!

A complete menu, from steak and seafood to chicken and more. They have a great salad bar with home made soaps. They take reservations and you should plan ahead during holidays. Great food and great service.

We visited the Barn for an evening out with friends. The special for Saturday evening was prime rib. None of our party chose the special but it did look very good. My sirloin was done perfectly. The salad bar has a wonderful selection. One of our party had the catfish and enjoyed it. Another had the grilled shrimp and another... More

Went on Friday night for fish fry. Tried beer battered fish. Was ok but in Wisconsin I expected more than ok. Salad bar was good. Wait staff was bad. We asked if the calm chowder had any lobster in it as my husband is allergic to it. She said I do not think so, had to insist her to check.... More

Family wedding here this weekend. Food was great. Bar service not so good. Slow service, inconsistent drink prices, only fair cocktails, no wine selection. Outdoor area was nice for the ceremony.
