If you love smoked BBQ this is the place for you. The smoke all kinds of meats right on the premises and they make their own tangy BBQ sauce. They offer smoked Brisket, Chicken, & Ribs (Baby Back & St. Louis) . An extensive non-BBQ menu too, with Steaks, Seafood, Burgers, & Sandwiches. They have a full bar serving beer,... More

We are here last month and it was excellent. The service was beyond approach and the food was very good. It was a log cabin that created great atmosphere.

The menu had a lot of choices and the ribs were definitely the way to go, the kids like the burgers and the barbecue chicken with delicious also. On the side the times were good except... More

Great BBQ and atmosphere. We stop every time we go to Lake George! The brisket is absolutely out of this world too.

Could only give it a one star because the cornbread was great, but after that we didn't receive any food for over an hour and finally got up and left. A first for us! My neice knew when they brought a second plate of cornbread it was going to be a long wait, but we never expected to wait over... More

Dinner and drinks on a Saturday afternoon to watch the Preakness horse race. Ate at the bar. Knew it would be good when we realized we were sitting next to locals enjoying a large spread of the BBQ meats. Dirty martinis were made perfectly! We had the St. Louis ribs, pulled pork, cole slaw, Mac n cheese and bean fries.... More

One caveat to my review is that Lake George really doesn't get cranking until Memorial Day so some of my issues may be due to it being pre-season of sorts. The server was pleasant but you could get the feeling that maybe she was on her first few weeks at the restaurant or as a server in general. She was... 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!
