“Good bar b q”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

The place for good pulled pork and ribs featured excellent side dishes and outdoor seating. The biggest problem was what was NOT on the menu - there was no brisket which is surprising for a bar b q place.

Other than the missing brisket, the food was terrific, the service good and the prices reasonable, making Smokey Joe's a winner for a family.

“Not best ribs in town. Can't be. ”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

First the were out of pulled pork at 6, but the people behind us that ordered after is got 3 full orders. So i got a full rack of ribs. They were boiled to a inch of there lives. Very light stay on the grill and only one choice of a distinctive sauce. It was not bad, but my tastes.
Now the fried green beans I have not seem before with the Wasabi dipping sauce. That was worth the bill.

“All around amazing service, food, and atmoshphere!!”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

I don't think I could have asked for a better family meal with delicious food that will give you the feeling of a "made with love, home cooked meal from mom". From the fall off the bone ribs to great pulled pork/chicken, matched by generous side portions and homemade pastas theres something for everybody at Smokey Joes Bar and Grill, previously the gaslight. Thanks to an excellent staff, I think its safe to say this may have been one the best dining experiences my family as a whole has experienced. We came with a group of 6 and as always when visiting a new place we all rated the meal after we had payed the bill and averaged 8.5 or better with 2 perfect 10's! Our server Ian couldn't have offered better service and was polite, friendly, and all around a pleasure to dine with. He went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed to ensure a good experience. Most of all if I haven't stressed it enough compliments to the chefs because without them none of it would be possible. HANDS DOWN BEST FOOD IN LAKE GEORGE VILLAGE!! A must try for everyone!
