Beautiful "on the river" sunset dinner

My wife and I were in town for a wedding. We stopped over at slippery's after visiting the beach park. We were fortunate to have been able to get a table outside along the balcony area overlooking the water! Wine list was limited but beer and cocktail selection were sufficient! The staff was... read more

Was there on the 23rd, six of us stopped for lunch. Food was terrible, 4 of us had the burgers that were 1/4in thick and charred so bad they were like eating a hockey puck. Two of the women had jambalaya, really dried out as if it was a week old and just being heated up over and over. Will... More

This was our first visit to Wabasha and we received very poor service here. Our waitress acted like we were a bother to her. The food was not horrible, but it was not great either. We definitely will not be back.

Our server was excellent and very attentive. We sat outside, ordered a cocktail and split the catfish fingers with fries. Food was o.k., nothing I would have to run back for. Nice to sit outside by the water. The building is in need of some attention. Small gift shop, not as big as I thought it would be as shown... More

A place to go for a wonderful meal, or just a few cocktails with friends. You can dine on the balcony overlooking the beautiful Mississippi River or inside. On Summer weekends, the Patio offers a relaxed atmosphere with grilled to order foods and cocktails. There is an excellent banquet area upstairs for weddings.... Everything from the Pork Tenderloin, Fresh Walleye,... More

Food was very average, expensive for what it was. $18 foe one small fisf fillet. Staff was a bunch of young kids. Was warm inside, a/c must have been off. I wont go back.

Loved sitting on the deck being catered to by our friendly waiter, Jim. Beer was cold, food was hot!

If you stop here thinking it was going to be the Slippery's from the movie "Grumpy Old Men" you're in for a disappointment. I have to admit that the setting on the river is beautiful and relaxing. As far as the food goes I can only comment on the Slippery Burger as that is what my wife and I both... More

Great food and service. As we were leaving, they were starting to slow grill the ribs for dinner. We were disappointed we couldn't stay for another meal.

Low-grade food fare, slightly run down, but fantastic view of the river. Several other better restaurants in town than this one.
