What a wonderful place. I had a 16oz prime rib and have tasted anything better. It melted in my mouth. Book so as not to be disappointed. Service a little slow on this occasion if not welcoming, but this was a one off as I have been here before, and the food more than made up for it

This restaurant features good cooking. You won't go away hungry. Portions are generous. They have everything from your usual burgers (which are huge) through good old fashioned turkey dinners and even filet mignon and baby back ribs. They offer a weekly series of specials which keep the menu fresh. The service is always friendly. Warm baked rolls add to the... More

Been by there many times but never stopped in. That won't happen again. Had a great experience. Drove in a downpour from Worcester and expected the place to be empty at 6:30. Wrong. There was a wait but none in the bar area Quick and pleasant server, drinks came quickly, food order also quick and ribs were great. Enough for... More

Awesome food, and a great atmosphere. Casual place that feels comfortable. We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. The wait for a table was 10 to 15 minutes but seating was available at the bar right away. The bar is a cool place and was not very full. Unfortunately our food took much longer then a couple of burgers should.... More

The Mountain Barn restaurant in Princeton is a family oriented eatery with a menu that ranges from filet mignon to burgers and ribs. The only negative is the lack of side options (I don't consider coleslaw a vegetable option) but the service is great, the ribs and sweet potato fries are fantastic and best of all, it is more than...

This is our second visit to the Mountain Barn. Great food and drinks, great ambiance and great service. The food is cooked just right and very tasty. Our party of four had fried clams, prime rib and a full rack of barbecued baby back ribs. The varied menu features entrees such as yankee pot roast, meatloaf and mashed potatoes and... More

This place hasn't changed much over the years, and I think it does well both because of and in spite of that fact. The food is tasty, I wouldn't call it gourmet but it fills your belly and then some. Lacking in the tap beer selection. A nice, consistent player in the little town's food scene.

We're taken to this restaurant for our birthday by family. The service was great even though the restaurant had lost power until just before opening. Had stuffed mushrooms for appetizer. Full belly clams sweet potato fries and coleslaw for main course. Dessert had had apple crisp with vanilla ice cream. Everything was well prepared. They also serve a full range... More
