We're vegetarians and found no shortage of options at the barn. Every item we ordered was delicious with a shout out to the apples to apples martini, the mushroom toast, and the BMT sandwich (basil, mozzarella, and tomato). Will definitely return.

I reserved the side room for a small surprise party for my husband and friends. There were only 6 of us so we felt very safe. Brian was our server and he was helpful, honest and friendly. Couldn't ask for better service! My halibut dish was superb. I'll be back again for it.

Service was excellent. Wine by the glass was "wanting" and needs improvement. Also, the food offerings needs to change and be updated. Would I go back? In the affirmative, I say, YES!

We really enjoy dining at The Barn. Everything about it is so good. We ate on the patio under the heater. It was perfect. The service is friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is casual and cozy. We can’t wait until our next visit.

What a fabulous place to eat. We had reservations for outdoor dining. The heat lamps were great! But come for the food. The best cauliflower bites and brussel sprouts. The wait staff even made a plate of veggies to go for my pooch!

Great food and service, with charming ambiance on the outdoor patio. I would happily return and/or recommend to others. I had the BBQ brisket - possibly the best I’ve ever had - the cauliflower appetizer was delicious, and the gelato was a perfect dessert!

Enjoyed the hummus appetizer - delicious homemade, grilled pita with freshly made hummus. Plenty for two of us. Well prepared filet and brisket entrees - generous portions. Best of all was the service. Thank you Adam!

The service is always exceptional here. Bar Manager Ally curates a very nice selection of beer, wine, and specialty cocktails. We had the grilled swordfish which my wife said was one of the best meals she ever had. Server Aaron was fantastic. And outdoor patio dining even has heat lamps to keep away any night chill!

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we chose to be seated outside. It was a lovely, landscaped setting with comfortable chairs and tables appropriately spaced. Greg, our server, was masked and kept a safe distance. That said, I would love to sit in the same spot whatever the situation (weather permitting) - so pleasant! Greg served us well. My wife had filet mignon, I had pork chop. Both were delicious. The Malbec was superb. We would definitely go back when we are again in Williamstown, MA.

We had a very nice and helpful waiter (I am sorry I can't remember his name) and the outdoor seating was very pleasant. Our table was at the end of the outdoor dining area which made us feel safe and where we weren't disturbed by other diners. We all enjoyed our meal choices. The range of offerings and prices is good.

The Barn Kitchen is a great place for food, service and ambience. The outside tables are spaced appropriately apart and even indoors, the seating looks safe and comfortable. The food and drinks were, as usual, excellent. There are a couple of appetizers on the menu that I absolutely adore -- but overall, there is nothing there that I don't like. When it gets chillier, I look forward to cocktails by the fire pit!

When in Williamstown, this spot needs to be on your list of places to eat. The outdoor seating was integrated into the space beautifully. The staff were attentive and helpful.

The menu was thorough, without being overwhelming. In particular, the Crispy Cauliflower Starter was fantastic. We had the Brisket and Blackened Roasted Swordfish, both of which were quite good. So YES, we will be back.
