Cassie our waitress was SUPER friendly... The food was great. Our daughter literally "judges" restaurants on Mac and Cheese- said it was the best she ever had! My son said, "mashed potatoes are the as good as Grandma's." This says a lot! Great live acoustic music on deck.... All around HOME RUN!!!! Enjoy!!!

Dinner and drinks on a Saturday afternoon to watch the Preakness horse race. Ate at the bar. Knew it would be good when we realized we were sitting next to locals enjoying a large spread of the BBQ meats. Dirty martinis were made perfectly! We had the St. Louis ribs, pulled pork, cole slaw, Mac n cheese and bean fries.... More

One caveat to my review is that Lake George really doesn't get cranking until Memorial Day so some of my issues may be due to it being pre-season of sorts. The server was pleasant but you could get the feeling that maybe she was on her first few weeks at the restaurant or as a server in general. She was... More

We ate dinner here back in early April with a large group that traveled to the area from out-of-town for a sporting event. I was a bit concerned about whether the place would be able to accommodate 25-30 parents and kids but my fears were dispelled within 5 minutes. We were seated as a group in their upstairs/loft area and... More

I ate here last night and was highly unsatisfied. Though the food is good, the people who work there seem to be lazy, constantly on their phones and more interested in other things when they should be attentive to there costumers. Anyone looking for a good spot to eat this summer should steer clear of this establishment! Spend your money... More

Very few places have a nicer atmosphere than the Barnsider's deck on a summer night. The deck faces the wooded back lot and the Warren County Bikeway and is dimly lit with an acoustic guitar player performing most nights. Pure bliss! There barbecue favorites are cooked to perfection. The chicken and rib combo is unbeatable! If you want to try... More

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!
