Food is delish. Had the rib eye steak, and prime rib of beef. It was cooked to perfection. Two healthy size side dishes. This is our 3rd summer coming to Lake George. We love the Barnsiders, yum!

We sat on the deck during a rain storm but it was perfect! The tents they had kept us plenty dry and surprisingly comfortable. The waitress was fabulous, accommodating any requests we had. The food was very good, portions to big to finish. I did not give this 5 stars cause the host while friendly also seemed to be bothered...first... More

Went there for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. Their food was absolutely delicious, from the appetizers to the entrees. Even more surprised at the cost, very reasonable for such great food. Pleasant atmosphere and very nice staff. Great job. I think this place will be in business for many years to come.

My wife and I walked to the restaurant from our hotel. The atmosphere and the decor were inviting and the place was busy. My wife ordered prime rib which we were informed wouldn't be rare at that hour but my wife ordered medium rare and was assured that was available. I ordered a tbone. My steak was fine but my...

OK, we dined in the first night they reopened for the 2016 season. Smoked brisket was my holy grail. Egad! They had no brisket! While I satisfied myself with delicious smoked baby backs, the hunger for brisket practically dominated my dreams. We just had to go back. We did on a night when the place was jumping in and out...

Really good ribs, pulled pork, brisket, mac and cheese, potato skins with pulled pork... ok pretty much everything was really good. And good size portions. Nice selection of beer as well. We had a fairly long wait of about 30 minutes but it was worth it. Wait staff was helpful and not overly hovering. The only thing I wouldn't recommend... More

We visited this restaurant with our 2 children who are six and two years old. The food was delicious, the kids even liked it! The roof started leaking while we were there on to our table but that was a freak thing and it happened to be during a huge thunderstorm... Overall very enjoyable dining experience!

Was excited for some BBQ but upon our arrival, we were ignored by not 1 but 2 young hostesses. When one of them finally acknowledged us. She informed us the Kitchen was backed up, so they were not seating anyone for at least an hour. This was 7pm at Lake George, prime time. We then realized we had been here... More

Some in our party of seven liked their meals and were very satisfied. Others did not and thought the meat was too dry. Service was good. One thing in their favor: there was plenty of parking--something of a premium in Lake George. We ate outside on a very large covered patio. That was nice, too.

We had a bit of a wait but the patio was great and the food totally worth it! Great selection, delicious ribs, and brisket! Will definitely go again!
