Description: Since 1991 we've been smokin' and sauce slingin' so we know how to cook - and treat barbeque with the respect it deserves. Our sauce is homemade in our kitchen in Lake George, NY, and our meats are seasoned & cooked to perfection. Ours is some of the best BBQ north of Memphis, and we aren't afraid to say so. But don't take our word for it, come and taste the sensation for yourself. Have us cater your next event!

Has a nice decor, really good if you like basic pub fare. Nothing bad and nothing to get overly enthused about. Good service.

“We love Bar B Que”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

On impulse we drove to Lake George. Lake still frozen and lots of closed venues, but this restaurant was open and on the way into town. The menu is varied and reasonably priced. The fire was going in the wood stove. Service was friendly and prompt. The only reason it is not a 5 is the menu does not state what comes with the meal and the waitstaff did not offer this information. We love sweet potato fries and placed an order as an appetizer, but did not need to do so as the meal came with two sides. Had we known, well now we do. We will be back.

“Fun atmosphere, good family option”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Ate here two nights in a row with a group of 10. The staff were very accommodating and the food was very good. The atmosphere is lively and welcoming. TV screens give the place a sports bar feel. The interior is more like a warm chalet with a wood stove downstairs and long, rustic plank tables upstairs. Nice local beer selection.

“Good BBQ -Nice People”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Service was prompt, polite and skillful. We had a cream of mushroom soup that was (now I know this sounds cuckoo) to die for. They should put it over rigatoni and market it as "rigatoni funghetti importati" - it really was, well incredible. We had 2 kinds of ribs and they were fall off the bone good. Good cornbread and Sam's Winter Ale combined with reasonable prices made this a great dinner

“Great Service, Great BBQ!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Our stop for lunch was on our way further north up to Chestertown, NY for the weekend. Upon entering the Barnsider, we were quickly met by the wait staff and seated. Our drink order was taken, and our order placed. We both had the BBQ pork sandwich that was outstanding, and priced right. The food, staff, and prices are perfect. If you want quality cooked BBQ in Lake George, look no further than The Barnsider Smokehouse Restaurant. When in the area again, we will return to The Barnsider!
