The Barn

Just north of Devil's Lake State Park off county road 123 on the way to Baraboo is the barn Restaurant.

Their sign reads, "Great Beer - Better Food."

We stopped in for lunch Saturday to enjoy the surroundings of the historic barn turned eating spot.

The main floor includes a bar and dining room with a waiting room in the space where cows were milked and cared for years ago.

A spacious deck offers dining al fresco.

The rough hewn rocks pulled from the land a hundred or more years ago make the foundation and solid beams create the ceiling and support structure for the large and beautiful re-purposed work space.

Our early afternoon stop gave us the dining room to ourselves.  It's no doubt busier in the evenings year-round and bouncing as the summer crowds descend upon Wisconsin's State Park.

A friendly server took quick care of us.  The hamburger was excellent and filling.

It's unfair to judge a place on a single burger - but for me the place was quite enjoyable and more than lived up to expectations.

Come on - a meal in America's Dairyland - inside a barn?  Sign me up.
