Good Meal

We have had dinner here each time we visit 4th Lake. If you are looking for great cuisine, go some place else. But if you are looking for a good, regular dinner, try it. I had the haddock which was very good. The service was excellent. The place is dated, but still cute inside. Enjoyed watching the... read more

we had a very large group - 2 actually and they were able to accommodate us (over 21 people)- food was great- service was a little slow but that could have been because of the amount of people.

Well not much one can say here. Inexperience wait staff, orders show up late and at different times. Food is plain nothing remarkable. Some items served at room temp. Over priced for what you get. Too bad it used to be a nice place, I don't know what happened but will be our last time here.

Staff was very hard to understand. Food was on but the flies drove us crazy!! It's been a couple years since our last visit so hopefully has improved more.

Had camped in this area all my life. remembered the ol barn from when i was a kid and had to stop. The inside of the place is out of this world .....so much history to look at. However prices a little high, charging for every little thing you added to your meal such as sauces ect... meal was not... More

There are so many great places to eat in the Inlet area, don't make the mistake of choosing The Ole Barn. Seated immediately and then waited 20 minutes for the waitress to take our orders. Jordan, our server, was incredibly rude. Half an hour later we still had no bread or appetizer, no highchair for the baby, and no waitress... More

We were staying at the campground right down the road and decided to give this restaurant a try. As others have mentioned, it is a huge place but the way they have it sectioned off makes it feel welcoming. The menu had a range of dishes from sandwiches to entrees which I would classify as "American" cuisine with a few... More

We visited this restaurant on a Thursday night at about 6:30 p.m. When we entered the restaurant only one person was eating. One person in a restaurant that could seat several hundred. Wow! Then, despite the availability of numerous tables, we were seated immediately adjacent to the only other patron. That patron was eating without shoes and proceeded to engage... More

We have been coming to the Ole Barn off and on for many years. When we first started coming here it was very good. Then the quality seemed to go down (or maybe we just caught them on a bad night) so we stopped coming here for a while. We decided to try it again and were pleasantly surprised. The... More

TWe were a party of 6 on a busy Friday night in the Adirondacks. It was the only restaurant in Inlet that had no wait. We soon found out why. The fish was served uncooked. The waitress took 1/2 off the uncooked meal. The steak ordered was grizzley and had more fat than meat. Service was slow and the food... More
