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!

We visited Lake George slightly after Labor Day, when a lot of the town has shut down for the season. Barnsider was still going and I got the impression it has a loyal local following.

We chose to sit outside so never saw indoors. A good number of other families were there on a Tuesday evening. Service was quick and very friendly. We chose local draught beers from the list, and were given some helpful food recommendations from Mariah, our waitress.

Food portions were great - neither of us could even consider dessert! The food was good quality, very fair for the price. You can certainly get better BBQ food, but you'd also pay more. I had BBQ brisket with two sides for $19, my dining companion had the brisket sandwich with one side for $12.

Really nice lunch. I had a brisket "panini". Good stuff. We sat outside. Good service, waitress was really nice, quick and pleasant. No line to wait in. All was good. It appeared that hey had a good beer selection, but we didn't have any of it.

We stopped on a whim not knowing what we wanted for dinner and were very pleased.
BIG THANK YOU TO KATHERINE, our waitress who was great, suggested an awesome appetizer (try the Western Fries) that we nearly filled up on before we even got the fabulous meal and drinks we loved .. food was great.... I would definately go back if we return to the area.

My girlfriends and I decided to try this bbq restaurant while on vacation. We were seated after an approximate 15 minute wait in the center of the out door deck. The restaurant was busy but there were open tables and they seemed to have a lot of staff. There were waitresses walking around us but never stopped at our table. So after sitting about 15 minutes we stopped a young girl who said she was a bus girl but would get our waitress. We saw her go over to the hostess and appeared to be letting her know we would like a server since the hostess looked our way. After approximately 10 more minutes and seeing the hostess standing at her station and no one come to our table we got up and left , we felt that waiting 25 minutes without anyone acknowledging you was long enough! There’s enough restaurants in Lake George to try so we moved on where service was on the menu!

This is a hard review to write. The food was great and the portions large which are important but the rudeness of the hostess and the long delay being served really hurt the experience. I get that places get busy but when someone sits down ten minutes after you and gets there meal ten minutes before yours that’s frustrating. What shouldn’t be accepted is snarky behavior by the hostess. When we came in she asked us if we wanted to eat indoors or out. We thought the only outdoor seating was in the front. When we were walked through the restaurant we spotted the back deck seating and asked about it. She responded very rudely about that being outside. And then complained my wife was in her way. Maybe she’s having a bad day but don’t take it out on the customers
