                                We had an excellent dinner , beautiful setting . Only one complaint- Even though this was in a different county than the one I live in- masks were not mandatory for the staff . Our waitress though efficient had her mask tucked under her chin the entire time . I found that to be insulting. The busboy had his on , the bar tender had hers on too. She is in too close of contact to not be considerate of her customers!!!

                                Took my mom to the Lady's Christmas Tea/Brunch/Lunch on her birthday. We had THE BEST time! The staff was super friendly and fun! The Chistmastini was fabulous - so tasty!!! The food was super fresh, flavorful, just perfect. VERY sad to hear they will be closing! :( Sad loss for St. Albans.

                                Two of us ordered what we described as the best red snapper we have ever eaten. The eggplant parmigiana was superb, as was the service. We will truly miss OBI in the new year and look forward to Beth William’s next amazing venture.

                                We love coming to the Old Barn for dinner. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is the best! We love all the people who have made it the special place it is and will be so sad to see them leave.

                                I felt so comfortable and relaxed at the Old Barn Inn for the first time in 2020. The waiters, waitresses, staff and other patrons were all welcoming. They’re was some sort of camaraderie unlike anything I’ve experienced this year. The service, food and Christmas decor was the cherry on top!

                                Loved it. What a wonderful evening of gourmet food and ambiance. It was so warm and cozy and the service was wonderful. Sadly, I learned that the owner of the building is not going to renew the lease to the restaurateur. What a huge loss - this place is amazing -and FOOD to die for. Go while you can on a Friday or Saturday through the end of the year.

                                I was disappointed that the owners seem to talk to some of the tables ...they only had five tables seated at the time and did not introduce themselves to the other two tables. Waited at least eight minutes to get a server to the table to get our drink order and the description of the fish order and what I received looked like a different dish than what was described...look like it came from Long John Silvers. Half way through the meal the chef remembered that he didn't give us gravy on the mash potatoes and brought it out to us. The other two people at our table had the steak and the pork chop, the thought it was very good.

                                we are super excited that this restaurant is open and available for dinner especially since we are long time home owners in St. Albans. The owners of the restaurant are amazing and go out of their way to assure you are having a great experience. I do believe that the wine menu could be enhanced for greater selection. But overall we had an amazing time.

                                We had a large party, the group had salmon, the filet, scallops and the hog chop. The board as an appetizer was perfect, excellent cheeses, and desserts were all delicious (creme brulee, chocolate cake and St. Albans basket). One of the party who ordered the salmon said it was best they ever had. Lots of hard surfaces in the old barn, so as fills more with people the sound level does pick up considerably, but never so much as to spoil the mood or interrupt your meal. We loved this place in its prior iteration and look forward to more visits to one of the nicest dining spots in the area.

                                Amazing. Beautiful. Service was excellent. I am not a big eater. So I chose the small plates. When it says small it means it. But worth every penny. The website said casual attire but we felt a little under dressed. Wine recommendation was spot on. We will be back.

                                So excited to have this place open. Hope to see the food and service continue. The only “critic” is my wife and I each had to send a cocktail back. Simple cocktails they just were not made correctly. No sweet vermouth in a Manhattan? No gin in a Vesper?

                                My husband and I got married at The Old Barn Inn 2 years ago and actually had our rehearsal dinner in this space. We wanted to celebrate Valentine’s Day here when we found out they were re-opening the restaurant! We had a fabulous dinner that was so delicious and were so happy to be back! Our waitress was awesome and very attentive with how busy they were. We can’t wait to come back in the summer time and sit out on the beautiful patio!

                                I had the steak that was perfectly cooked. Others at the table had the lobster pasta that had an abundance of lobster, and the chicken which was excellent. The salads were also very good. The only bad item was the soup which was not good and was returned and taken off our bill. Carla was our fabulous server.

                                Absolutely one of our favorite places. Charming atmosphere, original menu and overall a wonderful experience. We will go often.

                                We had a fantastic New Years Eve celebration at the Old Barn Inn. The appetizers were delicious, the main dishes were as well. Very busy night and the servers kept up with it. Music, friends, food... who could want more?

                                It was very nice. A very special Christmas Eve dinner with my wife and daughter.

                                We love the ambiance and the entire staff, and at our previous experiences in the short time you've been open, we've been very satisfied and felt that cost and value were in sync. However, the menu for this last visit on Dec. 24th was somewhat disappointing. Still very 'tasty', but all food items were at room temp. or cool. For the price per person, we expected a more... maybe some Salmon other than what was provided in the appetizer. I hope that next year the menu is improved or the prize reduced. Regardless, we live in St. Albans and will be visiting you for dinner when you re open next year. Your regular menu is very good and your chef is outstanding.
