Memphis in the North Country

While you can't find The bluesy vibe of Beale Street in these parts, you can enjoy solid Memphis barbecue right off the Northway in Lake George. Don't miss the barbecue skins!

We were actually very surprised to find such good ribs in a touristy place like Lake George. The ribs turned out to be fall off the bone tender! It is a cute little place, gets crowded around dinner time so keep that in mind. Everything about our meal was fantastic including the wait staff. We will definitely go back when... More

Nearby to the Wingate hotel and recommended by the staff. Service was a little slow as we wanted to eat-and-run, but worth the wait. Simple, good and filling. Very tasty.

Always thinking a busy restaurant is a good restaurant? So are we. And the Barnsider does not disappoint. Great Pub(ish) menu, good prices, and better than average food are reasons this place is always busy. And for a busy place, even the service is pretty good. Don't miss the fried green beans.......

I noticed mixed reviews on this restaurant however we decided to have New Years dinner since we arrived late to our hotel. The service was 'reasonable' in time. Everyone had a great personality and professionalism. We were seated upstairs and it was somewhat 'toasty'. Food was average. Had the pull pork and the kids had the kids meal. Price wise... More

We had a large party of friends, and this place was busy, so the wait was a bit long. But the food was excellent, portions were large, and there was plenty of variety on the menu. We would definitely go there again!

Had dinner here for our final night of vacation. Will not be back after this experience. I will say the corn bread was good and my meal of the pulled pork sandwich and fried green beans was average. My husbands meal of the other hand was awful. Started with the bbq chili which was edible but not good. He ordered... More

Went there because it smelled nice and bc it was the place with the most packed parking lot during slow season. The food was OK at best. My.husband and I had the nachos and chilli with pork and brisket (one for each of us) and a side of Mac n cheese. The chilli was at least edible but the Mac... More
