Stopped in on a Friday for lunch. Food and service were excellent. I've been going to this place on and off for 20 years, but I didn't make it last year. This was an excellent experience all the way around. The service was friendly and quick, and our burgers were awesome. Can't wait to go back.

Saturday's special was prime rib, my favorite. It was cooked exactly how I like it. It came with a huge baked potato. I have to say it was one of the best prime ribs I've had in a long time. My wife chose another special, stuffed sole with crab and scallops. She devoured it. The Old Barn is a must... More

Had ny strip steaks. Delicious. Cool atmosphere, old school weird decor, and vintage stage for honky tonk atmosphere. I swear I could see Hank William's ghost up there. Pretty garden reminded me of my grandma's yard. Out of the way but worth the 10 min drive from inlet.

Our whole family had dinner there years ago and it was a wonderful atmosphere and great food at a reasonable price. Very "mountain lodge' feet to it.

Ate there after a long days drive before heading off for some backcountry primative camping. Nice hat we could eat outside to a have our dog nearby so not to leave her in the hot car. They gave her a bowl of water too. The place was pretty empty, but service was good (not overbearing, but not non-existant). Food was... More

Lunches and dinner, a solid menu but also nice specials... you can always find something that 'hits the spot' when you're hungry, even if you did not know what you wanted when you walked in the door. Very good soups (they make their own), nice mix of lighter and comfort foods, and save room for dessert... I love their Buffalo... More

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
