My husband and I had the buffet. You get a salad bar, 3 types of soup, multiple desserts, 3 types of vegetables. There was ham, turkey catfish. We were there on the day before Thanksgiving so I think the food was geared more towards the holiday. All the food was very good. I especially liked the potato soup, carrots and... More

What the food lacks in real flavor, they try to make up with insanely large portions. I have eaten there three times in a six month period, ordered different things every time, and have never had a good experience. The wait staff is not very friendly or attentive, and I think they are under staffed for how big the operation... More

Wonderful food, great service and a charming place to sit and chat. We had catfish and chicken fried steak and it was superb. We took half of it with us. The cornbread is some of the best I've had. The desserts look incredible but we didn't have room for any.

I have visited several times and it just is too unpredictable. Sometimes the food is good, other times horrible. The service is usually not the best on any given day. To me it's not worth stopping in because you just don't know what you're going to get that day. The prices are too high for the quality of food they... More

This place was a quick stop on our way to Branson. I thought the regular menu item prices seemed a little high, but I didn't actually see anyone order from the menu. The big draw is the buffet. For only a dollar or two more than the menu items, they serve several meat options, soup, chili, sides, salads and DESSERT!... More

We had the BBQ buffet recently and really enjoyed the food. This was food like my grandmother made. Green beans and negotiators, pinto beans, baked beans, mashed potatoes and gravy. Meat selection were ribs, pulled pork, brisket, chicken, fried chicken, and catfish. Nothing fancy but good and filling. With hot rolls the size of saucers and pies and cakes that... More

From steak to 1/2 fried chicken this place has hands down the best cooking in the area! Great, friendly hospitality that you can't beat. Lots of food, for a great price; And don't leave without trying the deserts.

My husband and I ate lunch at the Red Barn last Saturday and yes it was our first and last visit. I have to admit it was a festival weekend and very busy but no excuse for bad food and service. First of all, even though there was a table available, they tried to get us to share a table... More

Fortunately, the Red Barn is bigger o the inside than it looks from the outside or it could not hold the swarms of people who head there for tasty home cooking. Located on Business Route I-44, a traveler hardly has to spend any extra time to pull over and get some serious food rather than the usual fast food fare.... More

This was our first ever visit to Red Barn. We went following friends who had posted pictures on FaceBook of the pastries and desserts. Red Barn is one of those one-of-a-kind restaurants that are few and far between today. When you walk in, you see the pastry and dessert case, filled with pies, cakes and cinnamon rolls. They were all... More
