Located right in the heart of Lake Placid. Stopped by here with my wife for lunch during the week.
The bar is located toward the back of the building with the main seating area up front. We pulled up a few barstools. Interesting badges/shields of various police and fire departments decorate the backdrop of the bar area.
The food was interesting...we chose a cheese platter and a deep fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich...how can you pass something like that up! Everything was tasty.
The bartender took good care of us and even made suggestions about the food and bar menu.
Even though it is located in the center of the tourist arena, it seemed like locals frequent this place...which tells me they do things right. Definitely worth checking out...

This is a great place.
This brewpub, located in Lake Placid, Regularly has 6 different in-house brews on tap across a wide range of styles. The John Brown Pale Ale is good, but is actually much more like an IPA. They also make seasonal Double IPAs that are very good, and very potent.
The inside bar are is very nicely appointed with lots of Adirondack-y exposed wood and good ambiance. Good knowledgeable bar tenders.
Perhaps the best feature to compliment the great microbrew, is the outside dining area/patio, which has amazing adirondack mountain and lake views.
Overall, it's a great place to have a good, limited production beer while enjoying good food, and soaking in the views. Highly recommend making the trip.

glad I finally got to check this place out, they have been happening since 1996 right on the main drag in lake placid. ski lodge looking interior, rustic wood, fireplace, low ceilings and dim lighting. a small wood featured bar is there in back, with maybe 8 beers on. all of there beers were solid, but this is your relatively generic lineup, a pale ale, a stout, a red beer, and a handful of seasonals along with the obligatory light beer for the weenies. john brown pale, the oatmeal stout, and the esb were all exceptional. the best part was the bartender, whose name eludes me now. he was overly generous with the samples, left the bar to show us the brewhouse, fielded questions, and was a genuinely nice human being. he also gave me a free growler as I left after I told him about my beer blogging and writing. this was a place I would have been happy to sit all night and relax. prices were a little steep, 6 bucks a pint, but it is a finer food establishment, and its priced accordingly. we didn't eat, but the food going out looked well crafted. this is one of the two breweries in town, and well worth a visit on your next trip to placid.

In the quaint village of Lake Placid, New York, nestled in the Adirondack Mountains, are two fine purveyors of hand crafted beer: one is Lake Placid Craft Brewing (See Review) and the other is this one.
Housed on Main Street in a cranberry clapboard building (the brewery is in the back), the Great Adirondack Steak and Seafood Company (aka Adirondack Brewing) is a small seven-barrel family-run brewpub/restaurant that doles out award-winning brews to tourists, locals and beer aficionados alike. Sneak around to the small and atmospheric bar area and stay a while.
Or … you can sit and enjoy your meal in the cozy interior that evokes mountains and skiing – Lake Placid was the home of the 1980 Winter Olympic Games, the one where the US hockey team defeated USSR on ice. (Do you believe in miracles?) The main dining room is bright and airy with a view of Main Street outside the large picture windows. Most of the walls, nooks and crannys are liberally festooned with a myriad of mountain sports bric-a-bric. Should Dudley Do-Wright need some snow shoes (to rescue Nell, perhaps?), he could do no wrong by swinging by here – after he’s downed a few beers.
The beer selection is decent and runs the gamet of most popular styles: Blonde Ale, John Brown Pale Ale, a hyper-hopped IPA named after Sean Somebody, a smoked porter, stout, red ale and a sweet Belgian dubbel round out the list. Not bad.
So, should you go to Lake Placid to ski, hike, or whatever, and crave great beer in a homey environment, then you could Do-No-Wrong.

Stopped by here on a Thursday afternoon (4PMish) for a couple beers. Beautiful day so we sat in the nice outside seating area. There are about 15 tables outside with two being occupied when we arrived. Waitress came by and started going over specials. I said we were only having some beer (it was only 4). She then proceeded to tell us that they have a policy that you have to sit at the bar unless you are ordering food. I told here we would be out of their way in less then an hour (theoretically before the crowds arrive) and she said there was nothing she could do. We had my 4 yo daughter along so we left. I asked to see the manager and after 10 minutes he came out and confirmed the policy.
I will never return to this establishment. Based on reviews of food and beer I won't be missing much. I would understand that policy maybe on a Friday night at 6 pm but a weekday at 4 with 12 open tables? Coincidently we walked by at 5:30pm and they still had only 3 out of 15 tables full.

My friends and I have a tradition of driving to Lake Placid from New York City once a year. This was our 6th trip. In all of those trips we stopped by Great Adirondack Steak and Seafood Company only twice (including this trip). It's not that we have something against the place, but it's more of a restaurant than a pub (and we cook at home).
This year we stopped by in the early afternoon, so the restaurant was empty. The bar area had a few people, and since it's fairly small, I would describe it as full. The atmosphere was laid back. Friendly. Relaxed. I think the restaurant area would feel a little more formal.
I had a sampler of their beers. All very enjoyable. Don't recall any standouts, but also don't recall any questionable brews. Enjoyed trying them all. One problem was that apparently they had some other beer flowing out of the Black IPA line, which was clearly not Black IPA. After a discussion involving a few people in front of and behind the bar, the problem was finally corrected (it might've been residual beer from another keg still in the line). Proper Black IPA was promptly added to my sampler; however, my friend who was drinking a pint of this beer didn't get her drink exchanged. I don't think it was malicious, but some more attention would've been nice.
Service was friendly. We didn't try any food, so I can't comment on that. Not sure if I'll be back soon. I think I'm comfortable stopping by every 3-4 years to see what's going on, but in my opinion the place does not lend itself to hanging out for considerable amount of time.

If you're thirsting for a nice craft brew in Lake Placid, you could do worse than this place. You could probably do better too. It strikes me as more of a restaurant than a brew pub. The bar area is small and quite crowded. Having to compete with the wait staff to get the bar tenders' attention sucks. The bottom line is, if you're in town, it's okay; however, I wouldn't make a special trip for it - for the beer that is. I cannot vouch one way or the other for the food. It was busy, so I am sure people were enjoying themselves.

The Great Adirondak Steak and Seafood Co. is right on main street in Lake Placid. It is paneled with red cedar siding, and the entrance is a small door on one side of the building.
I stopped in to have a beer or two after a long day of skiing, not to eat dinner, but upon entering it is clear that this is a restaurant first and a bar second. I proceeded to the bar area anyway, especially after seeing that the menu is a bit on the expensive side. The bar is tiny, about 6 or 7 seats and a few high tables. The area is tucked into the corner of the building, right by the entrance to the kitchen and within view of the live lobster tank.
There are 7 or 8 house beers on-tap; there are no other choices. The chalkboard across from the bar does not have all of the choices, so ask to see a beer menu. The menu is nice, with styles and detailed descriptions of each beer. The beer itself is fairly good brewpub beer, my favorite was the dubbel (Adirondak Abbey Ale), which seems to be their flagship beer. I would guess that it is always on-tap. All of the beers were served in appropriate glassware, but for just under a pint, 5 bucks was a little pricey in my opinion. One thing to take note of is that the website taplist never seems to change. If it does, it is way behind. Either way, ignore it.
I walked in fairly early in the evening on a Thursday, so at first I was the only person in the bar. The bartender was nice enough, but not very attentive. Even though sitting alone, it took a while to get beers. Of the two or three people who were behind the bar at one time or another, none of them were interested in having a conversation about beer or anything else for that matter. They were polite, but not friendly.
When some people did populate the bar, they were fairly friendly. About half of the crowd was retirement aged tourists, and the other half were late 30s early 40s locals.
I didn't try the food, but I will at some point, as I plan to go back to Lake Placid when I can.
Overall, if you're in Lake Placid and looking for what looks like a pretty good restaurant with beer choices, stop here. Actually, if you're into beer and you're in Lake Placid, there is no reason to pass up one of two places in town with good beer, especially if you like brewpubs. I would suggest that you budget most of your time at Lake Placid Brewpub. Maybe have dinner here and do your drinking there.
