                              The restaurant looked great. Server was very nice and helpful selecting the wine. Unfortunately, the lobster roll had very little lobster on a large roll and half the plate was literally covered in fries along with two pickles. The lobster roll itself was just ok. Portion was really disappointing. I had the pasta Bolognese which was pretty much all bolognese with very little pasta. I typically don’t complain, but this was upsetting. Server offered an alternative but too little too late. And the manager wouldn’t come to the table. As we were leaving, the guest services manager for the hotel asked us how our dinner was and I explained what happened. He was very upset and wanted to help and insisted on getting the manager. So we waited and he indicated the manager had left and somebody would call us the next day. I don’t believe the manager would leave the restaurant since it was only supposed to be open from 5:30 to 9. I think he was avoiding us. Anyway, the server and the guest services manager were great. The food and the disappearance of the manager were very disappointing. I’m sure we will get a response to try them again, but we live 8 hours away and won’t be coming back to the restaurant. The time to make things right was when we were at the restaurant. They had a chance to do so and for whatever reason, the manager chose not to help. Onward.

                              We always love coming to Little Barn. The atmosphere is a nice balance between subtle conversations and louder piano music. (Live). The only thing that struck me as surprising this time around was that the Bolognese was incredibly salty, so we had to leave half the sauce on the plate. But other than that it was a very nice outing. We will be back!

                              Chicken was amazing, apps were great. Lobster roll was terrible. Disappointing for Maine. One piece of actual lobster. The rest was mush. Service was spotty. Had to ask for butter then again for salt and pepper. Drink service was slow. Ambiance is amazing. Love the pumpkin displays for fall.

                              We had dinner here on 9/26 to celebrate our 51st anniversary. The ambiance and food were outstanding. Complimentary valet parking was an added bonus since we were staying in Arundel which has no taxi service. Appetizers and salad were presented well and very good. For entree I had the baked chicken and my husband had steak , both were delicious. The only negative was nothing a little special was done for our celebration which I had mentioned when I made the reservation.

                              The evening was very nice & the decor/service great. Our menu choice included the special for the evening & quite tasty to the mouth. Would come back again next time in town

                              Food and service here is always excellent. This time I had the herb roasted half chicken and my husband had the Wagyu burger. Both were so good and we had enough left over for a meal the next day. The lemon bar dessert was very flavorful. We live out of state but come here every year when we vacation in the area.

                              Loved this restaurant as an alternative to the much costlier White Barn Inn restaurant. Dood was wonderful, especially appetizers. Wait staff were excellent.

                              Loved the ambience, the service was upbeat, efficient, and friendly. I took off some stars because my $17.00 "specialty" cocktail came in this ridiculously small glass. I don't mind paying premium prices for tasty and well crafted cocktails, but my pet peeve is when they arrive in TEENY glasses and/or are PACKED to the brim with ice. The size of this cocktail was laughable for $17.00. It was in this "baby" martini style glass. And my lobster roll, while tender and very fresh, had a minuscule amount of lobster in it for $30.00. I noticed the woman at the next table faired a bit better with much more lobster piled in her roll. Luck of the draw I guess. But even with all of that, we did have a pleasant, relaxing lunch. Oh and I almost forgot...to be fair...our baked brie app with crostini was fabulous! So both highs and lows! But would try one more time...

                              The restaurant was nice. The service was great and the food was overall good. The deviled eggs were bland and had almost no pickled beet flavor which was disappointing. The seared halibut and flat iron steak were excellent, but the lobster macaroni and cheese (made with orzo) was like eating a plain pimento cheese dip and I would not recommend.

                              It was fine. Service was attentive and food was good especially the Brie appetizer. But the place was not lively at all and the menu was fairly limited

                              Food was poor but service was good. Also outside seating had no fans. It was a muggy night. Expected much more from white barn management.

                              We had asked for outdoor seating on our reservation but it was raining. The hostess took us past the beautiful inside area to a porch with the plastic flaps installed. She sat us exactly next to a family with two children in a completely empty room except for that family. Before we had chance to ask for inside seating she was gone and the little family was apologizing for their two relatively well behaved boys. It would have been helpful if the hostess recognized the poor table choice and offered to move us. When we left the dining room was still not full.

                              Everything was absolutely perfect. Amazing food, ambience and the service was extraordinary.
