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.

If we can give you a great place to enjoy the game, a brew, and some food then I'm happy! I hope to see you here many more times during football season, that's for sure. Until then, Nick Planty, Owner More

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. Food average (chicken fingers & fries, grilled cheese, chicken quesadilla, turkey club). But was one of the more reasonably priced meals we had in LP. We... More

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.

We wanted pizza so thought from the name this would be pizza. When we went in and realized it wasn't a pizza place and we started to turn around but saw the burgers and fries being delivered so we changed our minds. The French fries were perfect. We got the burger with bacon and BBQ Sauce. It was even better... More

Menu seemed appealing and there are many TVs, electronic darts, pool and a fosse table for guest use. We called ahead to see whether this place would accept a reservation (they don't) and accommodate a large group of approx. 25 people (they said they could and knew what time we were coming, but we experienced that they really couldn't).

This is not your classic corner bar...the food is outstanding! My husband and I were blown away by how much food we got for such a low price. Our favorite thing was the jalepeno cheddar soup.

If you're looking for a bar and grill place, this place is it. Reasonable prices and great food. More of a neighborhood bar, locals, nothing fancy just relaxing and fun to hang out.
