We were a party of five and three of us were disappointed with our entree. The ribs were very chewy and hard to get the meat off of the bone. The fried fish was not done and it was slimy on the inside. The greens,...baked beans, potato salad, and mac and cheese were outstanding! I might give it one my try, but for the price it should have been much better.More

First visit to the barn and we loved it. The wife and I both had a bbq sandwich with a side of collards. All excellent! Dad had smoked chicken and portion was large and delicious. Brother had the brisket but I didn’t try that. His...daughter shared a rib and that was excellent as well. We come to the Northern Neck every 4th of July for a week and this is definitely a return visit. Really enjoyed the live music and the overall friendly atmosphere. Great job!!More

We stopped here when the Brewery wasn't serving pizza! Catfish basket was very good and served quickly. Our friends had the pulled pork basket that looked pretty good. I think they are only open on weekends. Servers was friendly. We were camping nearby.

SC BBQ snob review. Old barn appearance with walk-up order window inside. The place was very clean inside and out including the outdoor seating. Impressive considering the number of folks eating at the picnic tables on a Saturday afternoon. Menu is simple with most things...being ala carte. No sweet tea!! The staff were prompt to take your order and the food came out in <10 minutes. Two pulled pork sandwiches with sides. The pork was tender and cooked correctly but had no smoke flavor. The original BBQ sauce was a very good ketchup based sauce. The fries were very good. The cole slaw add for the pork was fresh but needed seasoning. Baked beans were flavorless. Potato salad was ok at best. This place has potential but wouldn't warrant us returning. *Note this review was completed without using ridiculous undiscriptive terms like OMG, awesome, yummy, delish, to die for, do your self a favor, trust me, etc.. Describe the food, service (or lack of) and provide details on the cost/copy of check and include pictures! Is the place clean? No one cares about the waiter/waitress names or their abilities. They get changed like underwear and you don't get to pick one. We don't care about your allergies or the need for gluten free food.More

Given the craziness with Covid 19 this place is only open on Fridays. They are doing takeout only. Outstanding ribs, wonderful sides. Beans and fries extraordinary. Beef brisket sandwich also good though a little less flavorful than ribs. Would make this a go to place...if in the Northern Neck of VA.More

I have to say I was disappointed in the meal I had. The BBQ sandwich was good but it was very small for the price I paid. The small BBQ at the local DQ is bigger than the sandwich you get at the barn and...it costs half as much.More

Food was good. Sodas were a bit crazy since you have to get them out of a cooler and they are canned drinks!! Did not like that for a $1.00. A can of Coke! Food was delicious though.

I'd been wanting to try the BBQ for some time and today was the day. My husband and I both had the pulled pork sandwich which was very good. I had mac & cheese and he had collard greens. Mine was delicious and he said...his collard greens were as well. Everyone was friendly and we had 2 employees check to make sure everything was good. We also had a couple of cold bud lights. Definitely worth the 2 hour ride.More

In Montross for the week and had to wait till Thursday before we could check it out. Neat place in an open air barn just south of town. Menu has all the standards, but the Combo plate looked to cover all the options this Yankee...was hoping to sample during my short visit. Every thing was tasted great, I particularly liked the ribs and Mac n cheese. Small, but thoughtful selection of beers made a complete meal even better. I can only imagine the lines Friday and Saturday nights here,More

Recently tried the Northern Neck BBQ at the Barn in Montross. Several of my coworkers had tried it and were raving about it so I gave it a try. I must say I was a bit disappointed. First of all, there is no table service....You order from a very limited menu and then wait at tables for delivery. My biggest surprise was everything is ala carte; i.e., this turned out to be a rather expensive venture for what you got. While the food was very good, the serving sizes were not all that great. The fries were good and plentiful, but for the price they should have been. A small slice of pickle on the side was a $1. Really? My lunch was over $14 for a sandwich and fries and the overpriced pickle. Don't think I will be returning anytime soon.More

I had read the reviews and wanted to try their BBQ and French fries, but they are only open on Friday 11-7 and Saturday after 3. We were staying at Westmoreland State Park and as we were leaving to go home we stopped at 10:45...on Friday to see what we could get as takeout. The owners were very friendly. They had pulled pork ready, but not French fries. We got 2 pounds of pulled pork and really like it!More
