Close to home and a good place for drinks and live music on a weekend night, even mid-week. Also great outdoor space in the warm weather. The food can be very good, but at times is less than that. Can get very busy during happy hour, service is variable.

I love the personal touch when you come here. They remember you and greet you by name. Great for for a family with young kids, live music, karaoke night and plenty of other stuff always going on. We do their take-out often and really enjoy it. Keep up the great work!

We arrived about 7 with a party of 6. The restaurant was busy and had a large surprise birthday party going on. That was on top of the regular diners and the bar. It was very noisy because of the number of people and it is smaller than their other restaurant in Randolph which absorbs more noise. We were greeted... More

I thought this restaurant would have a greater variety of food. Being vegetarians, were weren't able to find much to order. We were fairly limited to meatless nachos, which were smothered in Cheddar cheese. My first visit there is my last.

The Barn offers a good selection of tavern-style food, including a few great burger selections. Service is generally good and seating is sufficient that waits, even on weekends, are not excessive. The large bar in the center of the restaurant and the multiple TV screens can make for a fairly noisey crown on weekends.

My review really could run hot or cold. They have a couple great bartenders and a couple that are not good at all. Luckily, the last few times I've been there the great ones were working. One is named Mike and the other is a woman, I think her name is Anna (she briefly left to work at the owners... More

Decided to go there instead of the diner next door, wrong choice.... took forever to get food had to ask for bread. Barely saw our waiter. Main course took over 45 min to get to the table and was barely edible at best. Will not go back again, had high hopes but no such luck....
