Our last night in Lake George finished nicely with the staff of the Barnsider. The food was sooooo delicious, the portion was out of this world !!!
Our waitress Mikayla gave an excellent service, the guitar player was also great. We recommend this restaurant.
Thanks for a great evening !!

My family was at the Barnsider for lunch on the 29th which we never got to eat. Our extended family of 10 including four children was kept waiting over an hour and still no food. We decided to leave at 1:00, and hour and ten minutes after we arrived. Contrary to the Barnsider?s response on the prior review, when we arrived for lunch at 12:00 on the same exact weekend, they were not busy at all, maybe 4 tables occupied in the entire restaurant. If you can?t manage to turn out food in an un-crowded restaurant, what is it like when the restaurant is crowded? As we were leaving, our waitress said ?It takes time to make homemade food?. Homemade food? My son ordered a peanut butter and jelly sandwich off the kids menu. Any parent can whip this up in seconds. If it takes this long to make your food then you should be focusing on a different cuisine or hiring a more efficient kitchen brigade. My family has eaten in restaurants all over the world including 3 starred Michelin restaurants in New York City and Paris, and a million and one different barbeque restaurants all over the country. Not a single one of us has ever left a restaurant prior to being served, until we were so unfortunate as to come upon the Barnsider. Even the most amateur restaurateur would have been sympathetic to children and offered a slice of bread, or offered to bring out the children?s meals first.
Barnsider encourages its guests to leave reviews on this website and at TripAdvisor for which I am also a member. I plan on leaving this review at Trip Advisor also. I encourage all the viewers here to take a look at some of the reviews on Trip Advisor which complain of very similar experiences and draw your own conclusions. I really hope this local business can get its act together and can improve their customer service because in the case of the Barnsider, where there?s smoke, there is indeed fire.

The Barnsider Smokehouse Restaurant

We are sorry that your experience was a negative one. Our goal is to provide a pleasing and satisfying dining experience. This past weekend was an extremely busy one and as the chef and owner I apologize that you had a longer wait, but two hours is not an accurate statement. Many people were walking out is also incorrect. We had a waiting line to get in! Finally our ribs our smoked for three to four hours as well as sauced on our broiler so your comment that the ribs were not cooked is also not factual. You may not have liked them because they are smoked and have what we describe as a smoke ring, but they are cooked. Finally, I do apologize that your experience was a poor one. I hope you can try us again the next time you are in Lake George.
