Great Catfish

I LOVE fresh catfish and was very pleased to see that it was available in Catfish Hunter Land of Grumpy Old Men! My husbands cod with the slippery potatoes and snap peas was also great and our daughter just loved to be in Slippery's

About 17 of us showed up and it didn't take long to see us. I order the Bleu Bacon Burger and it was fabulous... I heard the Catfish was excellent (will try that next time). Let's just say there wasn't a lot of talking going on because everyone seems to enjoy their meals and the service was fast considering the... More

Nice Bar, was featured in Grumpy Old Men. Right on the Mississippi River with a nice patio, nice staff and good food.

Seriously, how do people up here get so overweight eating this crap? Is it because they drink so much that they think its good? They screwed up spaghetti. Gummy, and the sauce was bizarre. The pork loin sandwich had to be from Schwann, and the breading was much thicker than the meat. They could fry cheese curds, like most of... More

Something is different at Slippery's, and it's good. Having eaten here several times over the past few years, I wasn't impressed, till late last year, we had a great meal, and fine service. We've been back several times this year and LOVE the clam chowder, house made, on fish Friday. Delish. It's tough to get much more than warehouse food... More

Stopped and had dinner. Service wasn't very good and there were only 6 people there and 2 of the 6 were only drinking. Food wasn't very good either. Kind of a let down.jûj

Don't expect to see the Slippery's from the movies, but make sure you stop in and have something to eat. My burger was great, over sized so I took 1/2 home. The coleslaw was excellent. I asked for a cup of hot water as it was so cold and the waitress brought me a glass of hot water with a... More

Right on the edge of the edge of the river, we imagine it would be lovely in nicer weather. Service was great, prices more than reasonable. My husband said his Philly was excellent, my burger was also very, very good. The desserts tasted good but mine was just two slices of what seemed to be SaraLee poundcake with strawberries and...

We found out after traveling all the way to Wabasha, that Slippery's is closed until February when they have their Grumpy Old Men Festival. The place from the outside looks like the Italian restaurant form the Grumpy Old Man 2, not so much like Slippery's from the movie. Too bad we couldn't see the inside or try the food. Has... More
