Good family BBQ

Wanted a low key, but tasty, dinner for our family first night in Lake George. Barnsider was a great choice - good BBQ, fun atmosphere, and good service.

Had dinner here on Monday evening. It was not busy and service was good. We split an entree and I had the Chili to start. The chili was good but did not have cheese on it. My biggest gripe is the drink. I ordered a Captain Morgan and Diet. When the drink arrived it was in a 22 oz. Sam... More

A very popular restaurant just south of Lake George Village. They have a very large outdoor seating area in the back that is covered and looks to be heated in the colder weather. We didn't eat inside but there appears to be plenty of seating. Come early if you don't want to wait in line. They have a decent sized... More

Though they specialize in BBQ I tried the prime rib - maybe the best I've ever had. I hoped to go back for another meal to sample the BBQ but didn't make it. Price was reasonable except that a bottle of domestic beer cost $5.00. Friendly, efficient wait-staff.

Our first visit to the Barnsider was great! Friendly service and quaint decor set the stage for a yummy meal. Kids meals were large portions and reasonably priced. My little food snobs loved the burgers! BBQ chicken and ribs were flavorful and well prepared with the right balance of smoky and sweet. Fried green beans were a delicious surprise. We... More

Food was good. We would return again. We were seated near the north facing windows and they were super drafty.

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!

The food was delish and plentiful! The staff was friendly! Everyone enjoyed their meal! Plus we left with doggie bags! What more can you ask for!
