Wiseguys, is a great place to grab a bite to eat with family, friends, or even by yourself. This establishment thrives off it's wonderful atmosphere and the welcoming staff. The food and drinks make the experience that much better and if you're lucky your favorite sports team will be playing. The menu has a wide selection for those looking for... More

Always a great stop for me and my wife. Every beer and drink we love and the food is excellent. We enjoy the dart board and the locals are always friendly. A regular part of our personal "Pub Crawl" for 20 years.

Hey there, it's pretty awesome to know you've loved just about everything you've tried here -- both food and drinks nonetheless! I'll be seeing you again next time you make one of those pub crawls, that's for sure. Until then, Nick Planty, Owner More

Granted, it's a sports bar so it's all about the sports, not the food. My boyfriend wanted to watch a hockey game so I went with him (for dinner). The food is just not that great. He's into health and the best thing he could find was friend fish so he ordered it with the intention of cutting away all... More

Hey there, Maribeth! I'm sorry you two couldn't find something to love on the menu while still being mindful of dietary restrictions. It's true that we're a sports bar through and through, so vegan options generally aren't our focus. That doesn't mean we can't add some good stuff or practice our modifications for the future, though. I want everyone to... More

Jason, this definitely does not sound like us -- I'm really sorry you got subpar service this time. There was a large convention (1800+ people) in town. The event got out between 8-9 PM and most of the hungry people came here since we're the only late-night place that serves food. We have a very small kitchen and cook food... More

We arrived in Lake Placid on Sunday evening and food options become very limited after 9-10pm.

This is a local sports bar where the locals go to and visitors are welcome. The food is always good and of course, the bar has everything you might like. Not fancy, but comfortable, and the service is friendly and efficient.

Wiseguys is a great place to have a couple beers and appetizers! I brought my fiancé here for the first time and we got the steamed clams. Pretty awesome especially for a bar. Drink specials are nice. I recommend this place if you're wanting to pass some time and get drinks. Service is solid as well!

Almost turned away because there wasn't a car in the lot at 2pm on a Sat in busy Lake Placid. Big dining area but definitely more of a bar than restaurant. Was mostly empty.

If you're looking for a place to watch sports, have fried food and drinks, this is the place. Average place in town, but a good spot to just hang out. Open until three in the morning; the bar is a bit seedy.
