The Rode Family has proudly been serving Southern New Jersey and beyond for over 130 years. Whether it's our popular BBQ from Rode's Catering in the summer, a delicious meal at our restaurant and bar, Rode's Fireside, or a casual affair in our historic barn, we are proud to serve our growing South Jersey community.
Rode's Barn, located conveniently behind Rode's Fireside in Swedesboro, NJ, dates back to 1940 and was built by the Rode family for their poultry wholesale business. Today, the casual and rustic barn is used for any type of event including casual weddings, holiday parties, baby and bridal showers, birthday parties, engagement parties, music events, photoshoots, movie production and more! Please inquire about your event and we would be happy to try to accommodate your needs.

Amazing, Hassle Free, and Beautiful!
Since this was my first wedding I went in very anxious....wanting everything to be perfect for my wife. (Yes I, the husband, decorated). Alyssa and Kaila were AMAZING! They put my worries to bed immediately. They were understanding, communicative, responsive to any and all questions, and worked with me every step of the way. The staff was awesome throughout the night (especially Cameron who made surey wife got the last smore). The barn is perfect for a beautiful and rustic setting, everything was clean..and looked wonderful. The food was out of this world. Our guests were blown away with how good it was. All in all it was the best wedding I've ever been to (and not just because it was mine).Sent on 10/17/2018

We were Married on 3/10/18 at Rode's Barn. Our wedding was perfect in so many ways. The barn is so rustic and cool. All of our guests loved the venue and atmosphere. Alyssa and her staff were amazing. Easy to work with. They made sure all the details were perfect! The food was excellent as well. We went with BBQ and our guests are still talking about how great the food was.Sent on 03/26/2018
The only thing we would have changed would be to have buttlerd apps instead of station. Not really a huge problem but we all know that the initial line to get your first drinks are long so it would be nice to offer the apps while people were waiting in line. Again, not a big deal.
Over all our wedding was Perfect!
Thank you Rode's Team
