I've been here several times over the years. I've usually had good food with good service. However recently, several dishes for our table were luke warm to cold as if the plates were laying around too long cooling off. Even my beer wasn't cold. I did mention it to our server and was quickly asked if I wanted something else... More

Not a very good experience specially when we found a small maggot like animal crawling on my ribs. I was not charged for my plate but definitely lost my appetite.. Very unfortunate specially because I was looking forward to my meal..

Ordered an IPA from the bar waitress brought me a Guinness stout, when I told her it was a stout she looked at me like I was nuts. Food was mediocre. My daughter ordered buffalo wings that had no wing sauce on them. Very Disappointed!

Grabbed a quick bite for lunch while visiting Lake George. Food was amazing, staff friendly and courteous. The place is just beautiful with the outside deck seating.

The prime rib was ok, nothing spectacular. The kids portion of ribs was obviously day old, left over ribs. Baked bean were very tasty with the shredded meat mixed in with them. NOW . . . . .here's my problem. I use Tripadvisor A LOT to go to a lot of places. We decided to get take out, and called... More

JerseySh0reFan: Sorry for your negative experience however I have no idea what your talking about in regards to a posted menu on Tripadvisor. Our menu is on our website as well as facebook. I'm confused by your comments. Furthermore what restaurant gives three side dishes with each entree. I think we are generous giving two sides of a wide variety... More

Went for lunch recently. The French Onion Soup had an odd sour, salty taste. The cheese was barely melted and not bubbly. Had asked for a cheesesteak sandwich to be placed over a salad. What I got was more like shaved top round with barely melted cheese over a green salad that was not very fresh. I specifically asked for... More

Very good BBQ. My daughter has had ribs from Florida to Ny and she loved them here. Brisket was yummy and the boys loved their burgers. Prices very reasonable. Only $58 for 4ppl.

Food was good, but took over an hour to come. The manager asked us how everything was and we told her about how long it took. She rolled her eyes, told us we were wrong and walked away.

Sorry your experience was a negative one. Our manager checked on the timeline of your meals and we didn't believe the wait was excessive. We have a pos system that helps coordinate times, etc., and we disagree with your complaint. As the chef owner when the customers complaint is made, I check into it personally. Your entire order took approximately... More

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!
