    Nice atmosphere and great service. The food was mixed. Steak was overpowered by a thick sauce. Salmon was okay.

    The food was delicious, no complaints there at all. The place was very nice, a quiet night despite it being a little filled. Only problem is that it took quite a while for the food to come, i think we waited almost an hour which is a first. The iced tea wasn't quite good either but maybe that was on me because i wasn't specific enough by saying iced instead of sweet lol. But overall it was a very good night, id give the whole thing a 4.4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    The ambiance and service were excellent. The food was above average, but not as good as we expected in a setting with this kind of upscale vibe. Good hotel food, not exceptional food.

    The Barn is a great dining experience. The service was attentive without being pushy. The decor is very attractive and comfortable. Our cocktails were tasty as was the clam chowder and our entrees — steak frites and grilled salmon. Cooked perfectly. Too bad we had no room for dessert!

    I love this place! Greg at the bar is terrific - lots of great recommendations wine and spirits. My short ribs were super flavorful, as was the Caesar salad. A post dinner drink in from of the fire completed a lovely evening.

    We have now dined at The Barn Kitchen and Bar several times. Going on New Years eve is always a risk, to any restaurant. HOWEVER, the entire evening was delightful, from service to food. And the dining room's ambience can't be beat. This establishment's dining experience has improved significantly since opening, including a broader menu. The prix fixe New Years eve offerings were excellent, and it was great that they offered the standard menu as well. A special call out to the mushroom strudel app, which should become a staple. Paul, one of the managers, came over to our table and was very engaging, as was our Wait server. All in all, an excellent evening. The place is becoming one of our regulars. And the drinks are delicious.

    The food was uniformly excellent, even though it ranged from mussels to burgers, and from vegan cauliflower to creme brulee. The waiter was also excellent, knowing when to zoom in to offer something and when to let us be. The prices were also low to middling, cocktails and mac-and-cheese each $15. We did have to have drinks as well as dinner in the dining room because the bar is not only (always) far too small but had its tables (including the open communal one??) reserved up.

    As a gluten, vegan free diner, it is very difficult for me to eat out, especially at a high-end restaurant. The Barn exceeded my expectations in every possible way. The roasted cauliflower with chickpea Ragu was one of the best meals I’ve ever had in my 56 years. The service, atmosphere and wine selection continue to amplify our experience. Such a gem for Williamstown!

    Food was pretty good but not worth the higher price points. The wait staff was friendly but mostly inattentive after we’d been served, instead focused on setting up empty tables for the next day’s breakfast service. We were originally planning to order dessert, but by the time our server returned, we’d decided to just get the check & leave.

    I'd say a slightly above-average overall experience, in a somewhat generic restaurant environment with a slightly corporate feel to it (tables slightly too large for intimate conversation, upholstered chairs and benches). The space is designed to look like a barn - but it is new construction. Friendly service.

    I generally like this place but just feel that the food could be better. It seems to be somewhere between a very good restaurant and a pub. Moving the quality of the food up a few notches would make it an essential part of visiting Williamstown.

    We've dined at the Barn several times and this was the worst service we've had. Our waitress, Karma, seemed overwhelmed, although it was not overly busy and completely forgot we wanted a second round of drinks. The menu also seems more limited, with only one special and only one fish and one vegetarian entree. The quality of the food was still very good.

    The cauliflower was undercooked and tasted like some curry powder was sprinkled on it and the steak was very tough and flavorless and the salmon and lentils was an incongruous pairing. The hostess was aloof and kept my party and I waiting to be seated whilst she conversed with a woman asking to book a table several weeks from the day we were standing there and my mother is in her 80s and frail and she just ignored us for well over 10 minutes. The waitress was excellent - friendly accommodating and I would give the service 5 stars had the hostess been attuned to us having to wait for our table

    The food comes to the table way too quickly As soon as you order it, it’s clearly prepped because it’s in front of you in less than five minutes. I didn’t even have a chance to sip my cocktail. It feels like they rush you out but that said the service was very good and the space is nice And the food was decent although the mac & cheese was cold because I’m sure they have bowls just sitting there waiting to go out on the table right away

    We have been coming here for years for reliable fare. I think the chef has changed. The French Toast used to be exquisite: somewhat caramelized and well seasoned with cinnamon and vanilla and piping hot. It was a favorite of one person in our party. However, maybe they have changed chefs. The last three times we have gotten it, it has been bland, doughy, and underwhelming, including barely warm. It’s really too bad. The new chef has also added Old Bay Seasoning to the potatoes that come with many breakfast orders. This is a mistake, as the flavor is overpowering for a morning meal. One can get the potatoes without OBS, but one has to ask.

    The room in which we ate dinner was dominated by a group of six who were very loud, making it very difficult for others to communicate with each other. The service was fine and the meal was fine, though a bit overpriced, I thought.

    My BLT was perfect and delicious with the crisp bacon and the sour dough bread. But the falafel which two of us had was awful. More like sawdust than falafel as it was way overcooked. We did like the atmosphere and decor. The service was a bit spotty as we had to wait for attention. But pretty good overall.
