FINGER LICKIN GOOD

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... read 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!

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.......
