I'm not a meat eater so my experience wasn't the best. There are not a lot of vegetarian options on the menu as it is and that night they were out of the buffalo seitan wings that i wanted to try. It would be nice if the had more vegetable options.

The food is good, and the views are awesome. Stick with the basics, sandwiches, burgers, salads, wings, etc, and you'll be happy

Definitely can't go wrong eating at the dancing bear. Staff was attentive. Nice menu with wide selection for everyone. Most of the portions were substantial. Salad as a meal was smaller than expected. One minor complaint was a constant blast of cold air whenever the doors opened, even with a double set of doors and us not being near them.... More

Five of us went to the Dancing Bear before the movie (theater just down the street). We all ordered the Dougie hamburgers..the one with the red onion marmalade. I suggest you ask for more of this marmalade..it is delicious. My husband ordered the chili also and said it was delicious. I am watching my carbs and asked for a salad... More

We visited Dancing Bear while in lake placid skiing for dinner. It was good. Not great but overall we did enjoy the meal. Best dish we ordered was the wedge salad. Sooo very good. The wings were also very good. Stay away from the grilled cheese and tomato soup entree. The grilled cheese was so bland it was bad. The... More

While at the High Peaks Resort we had breakfast at Dancing Bears twice. The first morning I had the New England breakfast (I am from MA after all). Baked beans, toasted brown bread, eggs, grilled tomatoes. Absolutely delicious. The second morning I had the steel cut Oates with blackberries. Yum. Other favorites around the table were the eggs Benedict and... More
