We ate here and could only get a table upstairs. The entire waitstaff seemed annoyed that they had to come upstairs. The food itself was fine but nothing outstanding. Everybody ate their dish but nobody wanted to go back again.

We had dinner here, they were very busy but still fit us in. The chicken dinner was wonderful and our waiter was quite good.

I went to the Barnsider years ago with my family and couldn't wait to go back with my fiancé and our friends. We had an older gentlemen for a waiter and he was very friendly and accommodating. We ordered the pulled pork chili fries to start and then baby back ribs, with potato salad and mac n cheese. our friends... More

A colleague and I enjoyed our dinners. I had the pulled pork BBQ sandwich. Good, smoky flavor on a nice hoagie roll, with a side of fried green beans. I'm not sure how a nutritionist would view these, but it seems like a good way to get the kids to eat their vegetables. My chum had the beef brisket, which... More

We were on a mission to have a good messy delicious BBQ meal whilst at Lake George and we found that at The Barnsider! The thing I love is that most stores/ restaurants at LG are family run/own and they are so inviting. We enjoyed a drink at the bar whilst waiting for our table, once seated we were greeted... More

We went to The Barnsider after an afternoon cruise on Lake George for dinner. Their system, if you can call it a system, for handling people as they come in was haphazard, at best. They asked how many people were in each party, but didn't ask for names. We were a party of four along with three other groups. We... More

This has become our "go to" restaurant in Lake George. We make it a tradition to go there on our first night in town, and this year we actually made 2 visits in one week. The staff is friendly, the wait never too long and the food is absolutely delicious! GO!

We love BBQ and enjoy trying new places on vacation. The parking lot was full and the restaurant smelled great! Our waitress was slow. We waited 10 minutes before she offered to get drinks. I'll chalk it up to the individual since other tables didn't seem to have the same problem. However, the management should consider changing their server coverage.... More

Great BBQ. Large covered outdoor space and two levels indoors. Fast service and very reasonably priced. We had a group of six adults and four kids, sat outside and enjoyed the baby back ribs, brisket and pulled chicken. FANTASTIC! Great sauce, nice choice of side dishes, and a kids menu. Nice selection of beers including a tasty local ADK brewpub... More
