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 40 years ago just before Lake Placid hosted its second Winter Olympic Games in 1980.

Dancing Bears is your go-to Lake Placid restaurant for a great time. Mixed-to-perfection drinks and delicious craft 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 best Adirondack restaurant for a big get-together, as we can host groups of up to 20 or 30. Enjoy our convenient Main Street Lake Placid location with great views of Mirror Lake. We're confident that our family-friendly dining experience will keep you coming back again and again. And don't forget to stop in on Thursdays for some of the best live music in Lake Placid!

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