Do people have bargaining options when getting an interest rate on a mortgage loan?

My wife and I are buying a home for around $ 210k in a rural town in VA. We went to a lender and were told that our interest rate would be about 6.5-6.8% and that it would be the same just about anywhere we went. We both have good credit (mid to upper 700’s) and have a downpayment of $ 60k. The rate she quoted was for an interest only loan lasting 5 years. Given our good credit and downpayment, should we try to bargain for a better rate? Is this rate going to be the same every place we go? I just felt like she was trying to give us as little info as she could and making it seem like the rate she quoted us is our only option.
