The Funky Red Barn has established itself as the place to go on a Thursday night, if you are hungry and like Prime Rib! Owner's Barry and Brooke offer a great deal - $12 for a great 10 oz plus piece of prime rib along with baked potato, green beans and a dinner roll. Service is terrific, fast and if... More

They have specials on different nights of the week. Some nights they have entertainment. The waitstaff is wonderful and or attentive to all your... More

It was a busy Thursday night and we waited about 20 minutes for a table, but it was certainly worth it. The food was great and the portions were huge. The chicken pot pie is delicious and the homemade biscuit on top was the size of a dinner plate, The half rack of ribs was enough for two meals, very... More

My GF and I swung in here after a long day of skiiing because it had great reviews. We wwere going to eat but when we saw the couple next to us food we decided against it. The atmosphere was what you would expect with darts, pool and an underwhelming beer selection. I would go back for the atmosphere.

We ate here after a long travel day and were pleasantly surprised. Funky indeed for a number of reasons. For a little, out of the way joint, the cook took a lot of care with the food. They have a decent selection of beers, some of which are local. I had the Funky Chicken- a chicken breast with baked potato... More

It's seems the word is getting out about their awesome Prime Rib. Both my husband and I enjoyed it with baked potato and green beans and bread. We complimented it with Guinness and a Couch Surfer Oatmeal stout by Otter Creek. The beer was good and dark. The place gets packed starting around 5pm. They open at 4pm but kitchen... More

The Red Barn is the place to be on Thursday nights. The prime rib special is a really good deal. The FRB has a super chef/host; awesome bar tender and wait staff.
