Our family enjoyed the steaks, BBQ Chicken & Shrimp & ribs too. The sides were very good as well. We made a reservation for 5pm on a Friday evening & it wasn't needed then but by 6pm the line was down to the parking lot. The waitress was nice too. Ribs (both Baby Back & St. LOUIS) could have been... More

We went to dinner there and we all thought our meals were very good. My wife and I had the Texas platter and I thought the ribs were good and the brisket was excellent. My grandson had the wings and he loved them. My son in law had the prime rib and throughly enjoyed it. My one suggestion would be... More

Our team dinner was held here and while some of the parents/families had to sit separately - they gave us the entire upstairs - girls had an area together and 2 larger tables were set up for families to gather at. Food was good - reasonably priced - and service was good as well. They did separate checks for 13... More

Cool and comfortable dinner on the back deck. We started with refreshing, colorful, fruity drinks. Cornbread was served. I tried a cup of the soup of the day made with chicken, shrimp, sausage and rice which was thick, meaty and delicious. we shared a daily special appetizer of 10 wings tossed in chili sauce, which we both liked. For an... More

Great BBQ, nice outdoor deck. Friendly staff, very good service. The outdoor area is suitable for those traveling with a dog.

The only reason I am giving this a 3 star is because the food was really good. Other than that the service was really bad. I had to ask for my drink four times before it came to the table and by then I had already finished my meal.

On our recent visit to Lake George, we ate at the Barnsider and are certainly glad we did. A couple of the people in our group had eaten here before and, knowing that everyone liked ribs, suggested we eat here. Certainly glad we did. As soon as we were seated, our server brought a basket of delicious cornbread to the... More

This place is by far the best BBQ you will find in Lake George. Their beef brisket is phenomenal, but so are their wings, ribs, chili, and cornbread. Their staff is friendly and the ambiance is rustic and comfortable.

In all of our years visiting Lake George, we just managed to eat here on our last visit...it's too bad we didn't make it here sooner. Food and service were great, nice atmosphere and the option of eating indoors or on the deck. It's become our new favorite place to have dinner.

Slow service seems to be an issue at several places we chose to eat. Food was very good...ordered brisket and bbq platters. They pkaced cronbread on the table and were attentive to our drink requests...but the wait for food and dessert was really long.

Sorry you experienced slow service. Unfortunately the town lost power that evening and we were one of the fee places that had power and were able to serve the public. We were busy and our servers had to overcome a very difficult moment. More
