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

Everything about our visit was average. Service, food, environment. Is nice to be on the river and also pull up to the dock in the summer.

And we were pleasantly surprised. The sausage appetizer w/ raspberry jelly, cream cheese, and crusty bread was wonderful. My wife had the Baby Red potato app, and it was also delicious. Plenty of GOM merch to buy if you're a fan. Great view of the river. We will stop again for the food on our next trip.

This was my wife's and my first time having supper here. We weren't disappointed. Dawn had shrimp and I had a modified jambalaya dish. My jambalaya was spose to be on rice but I asked for it on pasta. Nice and spicy. Good flavor. My only critique is the dish was watery instead of a nice sauce. The creamy soup... More

The service was very good and I love that it's on the river. It has an interesting history on the back of the menu. The walleye sandwich was very good. I recommend checking it out. It's one of the scenes in the movie Grumpy Old Men.

We hit Slippery's on a sunny weekday for lunch and ordered basic dishes. I had the stew and my wife had the chicken salad. Neither one was memorable. We did enjoy the atmosphere and the service was outstanding.

Visited on oct. 11, food was pretty good, and our server was really nice, but I asked another server if we could go to the gift shop. On the outside door, there is a sign to ask and they will assist you. Well, since it was my 1st time there, i had no idea how to get to the gift... More

Returning from the Twin Cities to the east coast we decided to take a detour down the River Road to Louisiana. This was our first stop, to have a lunch and continue with our trip, but the nature of my work required me to remain available on the phone for the next several hours. So, we ate and had a... More

don't look downstream too much! The river flows from the north to the south and tends to explore east and west as it goes!
