Excellent burgers with a great view!

Love the Slip, and look forward to eating here. Very little room inside, but the outside and the "upper deck" where you can see the water are great. Burgers are ordered - no sides included. Fries are so-so. Attentive staff and very kid friendly - animals, too.

You've got to have the right attitude at the Slip - the wait may be long, but the burgers are worth it. We've been coming here for years and enjoy the feeling of being on vacation as we sit and look at the lake. My favorite is the WHole Earth burger - love this vegetarian patty they make in house....

Service was sooooo slow. 20 mins to get a drink and our order taken. 10 more to get the drinks. Food was good but when not was time to pay it was another 20 mins for the waiter to come back.

It may have been the heatwave or it may have been just one of those days, but our lunch at "Slip" today was the worst food we have had in a very long time. We looked forward to a tasty patio lunch and cool beverage, but what we were served was quite the opposite. My friend ordered the fish and... More

Get the burger with Cajun seasoning for $5.95 and a happy hour beer on the patio and you'll have the best f/b package in the neighborhood. Great staff...watch people pass by who paid too much money for overpriced drinks and food on Main Street.

This place is easily overlooked as it is located in a small building. It is worth the stop. The burgers here are amazing. They are unique such as the peanut butter & bacon. Also, the Jack Daniels Chili is terrific especially on a cold, winter day. During the summer I suggest sitting outside.

It's been over a decade since I've been here and it feels like it was yesterday - nothing has changed. I'm not a big meat eater, but I have fond memories of the Peanut Butter burger and this was my quest - not disappointed. I stuck with wine and the very small list was not too inspiring but that's not... More

It was a nice day when we went here and the place was busy. Staff was nice. The food was OK, nothing really special, but you could tell they tried.

We used to come here a lot but the burgers are not what they used to be. My favorite is the blue cheese burger (you can even get the blue cheese on your fries). The restaurant has a very small indoor footprint (the owner once told us it is technically the smallest restaurant in the state with a full liquor... More
