I was in lake george for my wedding in October, 2010. A friend was in town and it was her birthday. On a whim we chose to go to Barnsiders. The interior itself was nice, rustic. The food was... well it left alot to be desired, though I might have thought better of the food if the service had been good.. The service??? WORST SERVICE I HAVE EVER GOTTEN FROM ANYWHERE IN MY LIFE!!! First of all, our drinks ran dry several times. We actually had to be obvious in getting the waitresses attention to refill our drinks, just short of going to find her and tap her on the shoulder. She was always standing at the bar yapping with coworkers. There were only 2 table seated int he whole entire place, its not like we were being over demanding of her time! Anytime we asked her for something she kind of rolled her eyes and spoke to us in a very patronizing tone. When we got ready to leave, we all pooled our money and left it on the table. The waitress ran over to collect her tip, and when she found that she did not get the tip that SHE thought she deserved she confronted us and asked why she didn't get the tip she thought she deserved. the girl had a FIGURE! When I told her that I did not have alot of cash on me to give her the EXACT amount that she found herself worthy of, she said " oh... that's sad.." I wanted to tell her that she could give me back the change from my tip! I WAS FURIOUS!!! Save yourself the headache and the ruining of your good time. I would not reccomend this place to my worst enemy. AVOID BARNSIDERS LIKE THE PLAGUE!

We were a party of 8 who decided to eat at the BBR. The staffing levels were not adequate to handle the service. The Hostesess told me this when I came in but I thought that it would not be a big deal.

It was.

We waited 2 hours for cold food and bad service. When we complained to Alice the waitress, she told us to talk to the MGR who told us that they did not anticipate the volume of diners who arrived.

Of course that this not our problem. BBR should have the right staff on hand.

I brought 8 business clients to a poor atmosphere and I have no NO recourse to management as there is no one on site to talk to.

Very unfortunate as we will never eat here again.

I went to Lake George for the weekend and my boyfriend recommended to dine at this place. What a wonderful idea. I ordered the chicken and ribs platter but ended up eating my boyfriend's bbq ribs too.. So delicious as well as the wine. Try the key lime pie!! It was the best I've ever had honestly. The staff was pleasant and made us feel like home. A group of 4 had the best time at this place. I recommend sitting outside in the patio if the weather permits it. The only draw is the parking space. This rest is located right on the main street and there's limited parking space in front of this place.

Coming from a family nt at all southern, i have to admit southern stylle BBQ is one of my all time summer favorite foods, this place has it down pat, the smoky scents that fill the air even before you walk in the door have your mouth watering. Prices are decent (mind you the touristy area prices always are higher so expect to pay more than what you would in a chain) the service profeessioanl and friendly. i did have a problem getting a waitress back at my table for even refills on my Drinks, but the place was busy.
