This was a fantastic dining experience. The menu was varied and the food we got was spectacular. We were well distanced from other diners in a large dining room. The waiter (Gregg) was fantastic. Chairs were comfortable. I would DEFINITELY go back again. Highly recommend.

Although it was relatively full, and under the Covid restrains the service was excellent and the food was very good. We had the halibut and the scallops- it was soooo good!

Great spot, doing a great job during the Covid crisis. The staff is superb - so attentive and capable! Food is well prepared, portions are plentiful. Contrary to what one might expect in colder weather, the outside heating system makes dining very pleasant. One of our favorite places in Williamstown.

The halibut and "cut of the day" were both excellent. Am still trying to figure out how to recreate the cauliflower risotto!
Gregg, the server was excellent, knowledgable and efficient.
We were seated at the only table with a view of and nearby the kitchen door and the noise from bottles being dropped into the recycling bin and the traffic to and fro was a bit distracting. Perhaps partially closing the large barn door to the vestibule area out side the kitchen door would help with the noise and view.
Other than that, a wonderful meal all around and the subtly presented birthday dessert gratis was very much appreciated. Have already recommended The Barn to friends.
We will definitely be back.

We're vegetarians and found no shortage of options at the barn. Every item we ordered was delicious with a shout out to the apples to apples martini, the mushroom toast, and the BMT sandwich (basil, mozzarella, and tomato). Will definitely return.

I reserved the side room for a small surprise party for my husband and friends. There were only 6 of us so we felt very safe. Brian was our server and he was helpful, honest and friendly. Couldn't ask for better service! My halibut dish was superb. I'll be back again for it.

Service was excellent. Wine by the glass was "wanting" and needs improvement. Also, the food offerings needs to change and be updated. Would I go back? In the affirmative, I say, YES!
