The Barn food is comfort food, served in a beautifully rustic atmosphere! You have to enjoy the buffet lthough off the menu food is great, too!

My grandchildren and I were visiting Sauder Village and they announced that they were starved. We chose the Barn for lunch. We had the buffet.It was delicious. The food tasted like a grandma made it. The four year old is a picky eater but he had seconds of the mac and cheese. We would go again. Good value at only... More

The Barn offers a very good buffet lunch with excellent soup. The restaurant is also very nicely decorated and as European tourists we enjoyed the Western style very much.

We have dined at The Barn twice before. The first time was several years ago and was very very good. The next time was 2 years ago and the buffet had been cut back, the food temp was cool and the food just not as good as before. We blamed this on our middle of the afternoon meal. Food must... More

I have been here many times over the years. This meal was the worst. Overcooked chicken, hamburger casserole, bland meatloaf and ribs were the meats. Two types of potatoes and green beans were the vegetables. The salad bar had cucumber salad and the pan was so overfilled the cucumbers on top were dry. The mushroom soup was hot but tasted... More

We often go to the Barn Restaurant for their senior buffet because we know it will be good and fresh and so reasonably priced.

I was here visiting a show at the adjacent Historic Village. We had a great lunch in the Barn Restaurant. Really delicious selection of food. We chose the buffet for lunch. The broasted chicken is a house specialty and it was awesome. Broasting is a method of cooking chicken and other foods using a pressure fryer. The salad bar was... More
