Dancing Bears Restaurant

Step into the rich history of Dancing Bears Restaurant in Lake Placid – affectionately known by the locals as DBL – and enjoy a modern atmosphere that has been charming visitors to upstate New York since opening over 35 years ago just before Lake Placid hosted its second Winter Olympic Games in 1980. 

Dancing Bears Restaurant is your go-to Lake Placid bar and grill for a great time. Mixed-to-perfection drinks and delicious draft beers? Check. Tasty food? Check. A warm, welcoming Adirondack atmosphere? Check!

We offer classic American pub food with a unique, modern twist. Perch at our high top tables, hang out at the bar, or lounge by the fireplace as you watch the game, sip your drink, and enjoy great food and company. Dancing Bears is the perfect restaurant in Lake Placid for a big get-together: we can host groups of up to 20 or 30. Enjoy our convenient Main Street location with great views of Mirror Lake.

Remember, we don't take reservations, so be sure to come early for an unforgettable Lake Placid restaurant experience. We're open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and we look forward to seeing you!
