The Barn Steakhouse Employee Relief Fund


At The Barn Steakhouse, we are not simply coworkers, we are "Our Barn Family". We use this phrase to describe the wonderful bond between those of us who make The Barn Steakhouse what it is.  We are also incredibly grateful and proud that our team Our Barn Family passes this on to all that we know and who dine with us!

As you are likely aware, all restaurants in Illinois were forced to close until at least March 31st, and The Barn Steakhouse is no exception.

Our Barn Family misses our regulars and those we are lucky enough to meet and share a laugh or a story with. We miss sharing in those happy moments - proposals, weddings, first dates, reunions- and we miss the quality time we have all spent at The Barn Steakhouse with our friends and families. THANK YOU to everyone who has reached out to offer support and a kind word, it has meant more than you know to each member of Our Barn Family. 

Sadly, this forced closure has left so many members of Our Barn Family without a way to pay their bills, afford their rent, buy groceries or obtain childcare. Many also have spouses in the industry impacted by these closures.

In an effort to help members of Our Barn Family during these uncertain times, we are reaching out to our community to ask you to consider giving  to help our staff get through this difficult time. Any donation amount will help make a difference for our employees and is appreciated beyond measure. 

All funds raised will go directly to our employees.
If you cannot donate, please share this with your friends and loved ones.

We look forward to the day when we can reopen our doors and see Our Barn Family again. 

Love, Amy and the Barn Steakhouse Team
