It was surprising to find a good BBQ place in such a small city, but that's exactly what the Barnsider is. We had nachos topped with brisket which were really good. We tried the pulled pork, sliced brisket, St Louis ribs, fries, and onion rings....More

We enjoyed the food very much and our service (including the busboy from Glens Falls who asked where we were from and was uncharacteristically friendly - we really enjoyed chatting with him). Our only complaint was when we arrived and we had to wait in...More

I have made it a point to have my last big dinner in the Adirondacks at The Barnsider. Not anymore. I stopped by around 5:30 pm on a Thursday and the place was fairly empty. I usually have the 12 oz Prime Rib dinner. Last...More

Had better barbecue (their sauce was nothing special) but I've had worse.This at least wasn't' fatty. Prices steep for what arrived on our plates. Very slap-it-on-the-plate-and-serve-it appearing plates, no garnishes or love. Steak smaller and thinner than expected & cut unevenly: under 1/2 inch on...More

Went for a mid week dinner at the end of the summer season. Loved the vibe - the different wood tables, the decor, the overall atmosphere. The food was average. I ordered a steak medium rare and it came out more like medium well. The...More

Prices were good for the region considering it's Lake George. Service was very good. St.Louis ribs a bit overdone but meaty. Beef brisket was very good. Worth a stop when in town.

We had dinner at this rustic restaurant. Mixed drinks are top of the line. Salmon and prime rib were outstanding! The salad was delicious and the bread was served warm. It was quiet and the waitress was friendly and knowledgeable.

From the minute we walked up the steps to the restaurant, we were greeted by three smiling, friendly faces, all of whom, worked there. Right there, that made the trip. Now for the food, it had the best barbecue food then any other place in...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!
