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.

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.

$18 for a 1/2 pour on glass of wine. Lobster roll plate was 80% fries, When I found it…it was lite on lobster in a grilled bun, nothing to write home about. I’ve had much better ones on the Cape and in CT. Polenta was great, but Bolognese was over salted and more of an appetizer. All in all, I wouldn’t return.

There is a reason The White Barn is in the “1,000 Places To See Before You Die” book. It is a dining experience not to be missed. My family and I had lunch at Little Barn on our drive back from our beautiful vacation in Surry Maine. We ate indoors and the ambience is lovely. As vegetarians, there were plenty of options for us. We highly recommend the turmeric pickled cauliflower for bites, the crispy brussels sprout chips for starters, the three cheese panini with creamy tomato soup for the daily, and molten brownie with salted caramel ice cream for dessert. Our server was excellent, and upon his recommendation we ordered the divine postcard from thailand and refreshing honolulu honey spirit-free drinks. Prices are very comparable to NYC prices. Our kids enjoyed the word search & coloring activity, as well as their meal (trying orzo for the very first time). We made reservations online, and our email queries were answered promptly. Make dining with loved ones at Little Barn or The White Barn part of your next trip to Maine.

Double date on 4th of July weekend. Little barn was a little slice of heaven with a quiet cozy atmosphere. Sound of the piano playing in the main restaurant carried over to our table and it was perfectly comforting. Food was great and server was very knowledgeable. Would totally recommend!

While it is called "The Little Barn" you can expect the same quality of service and food offered at The White Barn Inn. Which is exceptional.
