The Steer Barn restaurant has been a fixture in Wyandot County since 1965. Through the years, the restaurant has been locally owned and operated and recognized as a fine dining establishment within a historic barn atmosphere that is both welcoming and inviting.

Daniel Lucas, who was born and raised in Upper Sandusky, has been happily married for thirty-eight years to his high school sweetheart, Renée (Giacalone) Lucas who, originally from Michigan, has lived in Upper since she was seven. Together they have been blessed to raise nine children. For the past thirty-eight years Daniel has worked, and continues to work, at Lucas-Batton in Upper Sandusky as the fourth generation in the family-owned business. Renée has homeschooled all their children and has two more years left in this endeavor. They keep very active with their faith and with their ever-growing family which is currently at twenty-seven members and counting.
Erected in 1897, our barn was built typically of the kind of structures needed during that period. Barns had to be of good size in order to store hay, straw, and grains for feeding the farm animals, and to provide housing during the cold winter months. All the original timber, beams, and framework are still intact and as strong as ever.
Originally purchased in 1965, The Steer Barn was renovated for dining while restoring its original structure and charm. It's a pleasure to be your host. A cordial invitation is extended for you to relax and enjoy your dinner in the atmosphere of Rural Yesteryear. We are a full-service restaurant that offers fresh-cut steaks, seafood, and cocktails.
Our amazing staff is here to serve. With experience that spans four generations, let us make your Steer Barn evening something to write about.
