this is our 2nd visit to Sauder village. The first time food was excellent at the Barn, so it was surprising to have such a lousy meal. I ordered 2 piece chicken dinner dark meat. I was looking forward to it as it was supposed to be pressure fried which is always excellent. What I got was a large breast... More

After viewing the famous quilt show at the Founders Hall, the aroma in the parking lot was irresistible. We three had a short wait, and a wonderful lunch with very good service.

Buffets are not often my dining choice, but staying in the adjacent campground made this a handy stop. We arrived, checked in, and setup at our spot for the next several days. It was raining, so decided to go give the Barn a try. Found that Monday's are 'senior' day and checked the buffet spread. Liked that the choices were... More

sorry, i know this seems to be a local favorite, but good was kind of lackluster, very little variety, and much of it not very hot. At $16 per person, not including a drink, expected better.

The barn was a nice find off route 80 in Archbold. Sick of turnpike stops, this is less than 5 miles off 80. Less than $33 for dinner for three. Had one dinner buffet and the others had the soup and salad. Two types of homemade soup, we had potato cheese, very good! Salad bar had a nice variety of... More

Heard great things about The Barn Restaurant at Sauder Village! Was not impressed! Maybe 10 other people there. Fried chicken was overcooked and dry! Swiss steak was tough and dry! Only those two meat choices! Nothing was labeled! Oh and if you want ice cream it costs extra! Salad bar was pretty good. For $13.99 not at all worth it.... More

Sauder Village is a signature destination in Northwest Ohio and consists of an educational, turn of the century village as well as on site glass blowing and pottery shop and other stores as well. They also have a restaurant in a restored barn. The buffet is what the majority of patrons order and what I always order as well. The... More

Great buffet with lots of selections. Waitressing staff is pleasant and helpful. The buffet is a great way to satisfy lots of hungry people with lots of different tastes. It's a great way to end a day visit at Sauder Village.

We were here for lunch while touring the Sauder Village next door. This is a terrific buffet with excellent fried chicken, mashed potatoes, etc. Also soup and an excellent salad bar. I would have liked more dessert choices. Note the lunch buffet operates only 11 am - 2 pm weekdays, so plan your trip accordingly.
