The White Barn Inn continues to produce an evening that not just dinner, but an event. Everything is meticulously crafted and carefully prepared. The price can be a little daunting, but there's no other restaurant in the area that provides an evening such as the White Barn Inn.

My favorite restaurant EVER - Hands down. Great food, friendly service, impeccable in every way. This was our third trip from NYC to stay and dine at the White Barn Inn. There is so little they could do to improve this place. I wish we could move in but we’d be as big as two houses.

We loved The White Barn Inn. The decor is amazing with the fall props lighted through the nice large window. It was an honor that the American flag was hung.
I did think &125 pp is quite pricey and several exchanges or add ones were at a price. For 2, our bill was $423. That’s high, yet it was a lovely evening.
Our waiter and all the staff were gracious and friendly.

One of my parent’s favorite restaurants in ME. The staff were friendly and extremely attentive. Much of the food is delicious. I would not recommend it as a destination for vegetarians. Although they kindly offered an alternative vegetable melange for the main course, for the price, vegetarians would be better served elsewhere.

This is our second year coming here and we were again amazed by the quality of service, hospitality and, of course, exceptional cuisine. From early cocktails at the piano (Mark is amazing) to the prix fixe meal, well-planned wine list, and seasonal Colonial ambience everything was perfect. We can’t wait to return next year.

Food was generally great, and service is top notch. However, we had a piece of plastic in one of our dishes which threw us off for the rest of the meal. That's never fun.

This was a return trip to WBI and it did not disappoint! Not only is the food exceptional but the service is so well done. You feel so well attended to and it is comfortable, mannerly service not pretentious but correct and caring. I was happy to see the decor had remained romantic, rustic and polished and that they still provide dinner music by a talented pianist. So grateful for this lovely evening. Keep up the great work WBI!

It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary and the staff made us feel welcome and special. The food was incredible, the Lobster Alla Chitarra was unbelievable and if you love chocolate I would highly recommend the chocolate soufflé. We are looking forward to returning next year and starting a new tradition. Thank you White Barn Staff!

We have been coming to White Barn for special occasions for decades and it doesn't disappoint. We were a little surprised that it hasn't really been spruced up since the new owners came in and kind of feels like the special place your grandparents would take you. But the cuisine is world class (as is the price!). Staff is attentive and helpful and the pianist is spectacular. I wake up thinking about some of the amazing dishes.

Service was awful. Lady's first drink served 5 minutes after man's first drink was served (both drinks were ordered at the SAME TIME). We were never asked if we wanted coffee at the end of the meal. Menu is a step DOWN from previous years with signature dish no longer on the menu.

One of our favorites. Been about six times now. Latest visit was to celebrate our 30th Anniversary and 50th Birthdays. The food & serice is the best we’ve found in Maine. The atmosphere is fantastic, noise level is low and other diners always seem to appreciate and respect the low key atmosphere. Already looking forward to our next special occasion.

I gave the restaurant a 5star as it was very good but a few things stick out that I would like to mention. The bar is tiny. The bartender was friendly but busy serving the whole restaurant. I also would have thought a local craft cocktail may have been suggested. Our waiter was very nice & knowledgeable & the backwaiters
made the service wonderful; they could have told us what we were about to enjoy though. The food was thoughtfully prepared and very good but I have had as good a meal for much less money. Farm to table restaurants are all over today so paying $125 for a meal is steep. The added touch of the granola bars in our car was top notch!!

We were visiting the area & a friend said to goto the White Barn Inn. It was in an old barn & was beautiful and it was absolutely delicious. The service is wonderful as well. Very attentive,

We had four courses & there were also little extras - they brought out ceviche, Panna Cotta, & extra little sweets at the end of dinner.

Pricey but worth it for a special occasion.
