Place fits in well

The Ole Barn is off the beaten track but is worthwhile stopping in. The place fits the Adirondacks well and the food is good. We went with a large party and everyone was pleased.

We were camping at Limekiln Lake and had no cell signal to research restaurants so ended up taking a chance on this place because after setting up camp we wanted something quick and it was right down the road. The restaurant area was huge but we were the only people there which should have been telling. The waitress was very... More

The food both I and, my wife had must have been a frozen dish that was heated in a microwave. Absolutely tasteless and, mushy..!!! The decor of the place is awesome... The FOOD is AWFUL..!!! Don't go here

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 wild animals and... 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.

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
