We stopped in for a late lunch/early dinner. We ordered the fried green beans, which were really good. We all had burgers and they were average. The waitstaff were really nice and attentive. The bar was very busy as there were horse races going on....More

The pulled pork was very bad - a safe bet it was pulled from a sterno- heated catering tray (where it spent many hours before being served). The salad was wilted. The ribs were ok but the side of BBQ sauce was not BBQ sauce....More

We just pulled into this place because we were tired of looking around for place to eat. All the places in Lake George that were recommended to us were either booked or had an hour or so wait. We went into Smokey Joe's blind, not...More
