We were here for lunch while touring the Sauder Village next door. This is a terrific buffet with excellent fried chicken, mashed potatoes, etc. Also soup and an excellent salad bar. I would have liked more dessert choices. Note the lunch buffet operates only 11 am - 2 pm weekdays, so plan your trip accordingly.

Dined here for lunch with our family. Buffet for 9.95 was a great value. Nice salad bar and they had three main entree dishes and plenty of side dishes. They also had two good soups. They serve homemade rolls with the buffet. Service was excellent. Make sure to stop at the adjacent doughbox bakery for the best pastries and pies... More

We arrived at nearly closing time and just wanted a quick sandwich. I would have liked to try the buffet, it looks fantastic. Will be going back again next spring!

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
