    Good food and great service! Atmosphere was quiet and restful. We enjoyed our ladies lunch on Williams Homecoming weekend and the location can’t be beat! Special kudos to our wonderful server from Bennington, VT. I’m not good at remembering names but she was super!

    Enjoyed the meal. Server (Gregg) was outstanding and made the meal very enjoyable. Thought the lighting could have been darkened. Prices are ok, but far from 'reasonable'.

    This was my third visit and the experience was as good as ever. I tried the watermelon salad for the first time and loved it. My farro salmon was delicious. It was cooked perfectly which is something I have a hard time doing. I ordered chocolate ice cream for dessert. They served two scoop and I only wanted one. Unfortunately I ate both scoops because it was so good. Looking forward to going back.

    Even if you don't like cauliflower, try the fried cauliflower appetizer -- it's fantastic. Pork tenderloin and grilled salmon were also great as main courses. Service was warm and efficient. Fun bar, too.

    A wonderful modern/rustic setting for dinner in the heart of Williamstown. We were there for an early Wednesday night meal, so the atmosphere was fairly quiet. Our server was charming and personable and graciously accommodating. Our dinner was was delicious, we each had salad and an entree. My watermelon and arugula salad was especially refreshing and tasty! Our dinners were well prepared and delicious as well. Wine and IPA craft beer were excellent.

    We have been to the Barn several times and our primary server is always pleasant and knowledgeable, the food is always good, and the value reasonable. BUT, last night the service was very sub-par. No silverware/napkins until asked for. Bottle of water but no glasses until asked for. No blue cheese dressing with wings though on the menu, salt shaker empty, no dishes including drinks not cleared when main courses came and not even at end of meal prior to desert, until requested. This was despite many support staff seen walking around but appearing to be doing nothing. Disappointing, and clearly reflects a lack of training. Not what we would expect from the Barn.

    Great meal both at dinner and then at breakfast the next day; good ambiance and our server Amy was outstanding. One question, the Barn Kitchen & Bar asked what occasion we we’re celebrating when we made the reservation but then never mentioned it or referenced it when we arrived. We had a great time but wondered why they asked that why.
