My husband and I were looking for a spot to watch our beloved Penguins open the season and our hotel didn't offer the network they were on. We had heard that Wiseguys was the "only authentic sports bar" in Lake Placid, so we decided to go there to watch the game.

Neither of us are bar people, so we were happy to see that each individual booth had a TV that you can turn to whatever station you want. The manager helped us find the channel we needed and told us to make ourselves at home. The bar wasn't too busy early in the evening, so we were able to watch the entire game for simply the cost of a couple of drinks and a few appetizers.

If you're looking for a spot to actually watch a sporting event, Wiseguys is a good choice.

Wise guys is a nice little sports pub with great food, cold beer, and good service. The burgers are angus beef and cooked perfectly every time I have been there. The portions are generous and the prices are quite reasonable. It may be a little smaller than you would think, but what they do, they do very well! Treat yourself.

We had a blast! Tony our bartender and Sean, the Dj, were so much fun. This is a great place where the locals enjoy mingling with the tourists such as ourselves. They have a really cool hockey game in the back corner which my husband and I havn't seen in years, we played this for an hour! They have games, pool tables, fireplaces, entertainment and outdoor seating. Sean the DJ got me up for a Karaoke song. Too much FUN! Tony, our bartender knows his hocket teams and is great for a good laugh. The food is regular Pub Grub. We will certainly hang out here again our next visit to Lake Placid!

We went here with a big group of people and ahead of time, they said they would offer us a buffet with lots of choices. Turns out that the buffet was "ok" but they didn't have everything that they had said they would have. Also, $26 is very expensive for the type of food they offered. They also gave us crap because we were two people short and made us pay for them not showing up.

We were promised a karaoke night afterward, so my spouse and I stuck around until 12 and the karaoke never came on. Disapointing.

The "real" menu was fairly cheap and looked like decent pub-style-food. I really wish we would have used that $26 to go eat somewhere better.
