Great food, great beer! Friendly staff, and reasonably priced. Good selection of craft beer. Close to the Best Western Hotel. In a small shopping mall.

Just across from Hampton Inn, open until 2 AM, great for a quick bite if you get in late. Good service, good food. Very loud music, sports bar, enormous TV screens on all walls.

Slackers is a great local sports bar. The staff is friendly and the regulars are nice, except on NFL game days when the Packers are playing. Expect the Wisconsin faithful to show up in mass, sporting Packer gear and feeling righteous about their team. The beer is cold, the drinks are tasty and generously poured and the food is solid....

We stay in the area at least annually and haven't tried Slackers until this past November on a pre-cruise night, didn't realize what we had been missing! Within walking distance to the hotel, great food, entertainment, and service! Don't be fooled by the shopping center exterior !

We we arrived in Fort Lauderdale late and inquired at the hotel where to eat, they recommended Slackers. When we entered the bar, we were a little skeptical about it, but it soon changed. The service is second to none and the variety of food selections and the amount of deer selections. The waitress was very helpful and suggestions of... More

My hotel recommended this restaurant across the street. It was wonderful. I had Brats with Kraut, Pasta Salad and Broccoli. Everything was cooked to perfection. Best Brats that I have had in a very long time. My friends also enjoyed their dinners. If I am ever stay at this hotel again, I will definitely eat at Slackers. Note: I did... More

Stayed across the street at a hotel for a cruise the next day. Family wanted dinner so we walked across the street to the shopping center. Saw Slakers and decided to give it a try. All four of us had a different meal. Good food. I had the fish and it was moist. Rest of the family had wings, they... More

Not so sure about the place when we first walked in. A real bar atmosphere. The service that night was very slow but the food (we had quesidillas) made up for the slow service.

We (6 of us including 2 children) arrived in Ft Lauderdale the night before our cruise and stayed at the Holiday Inn across from Slackers. The hotel desk clerk recommended Slackers for dinner - a quick walk across State Road 84. We arrived just before a big "Noles" game. Our timing was perfect since the bar filled up quickly with...

Slackers has a full and comprehensive menu of tast food and 20 kinds of craft beers. Our waitress was very sweet and accommodating but needed more training. She meant well but just couldn't quite get everything together like bringing napkins and utensils to eat with your food. This bar is located in a strip shopping center of marginal stores.
