“Excellent Food , Nice setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

A stop at Slickers is a must. Excellent food and staff along with the ability to sit outside and view beautiful Old Forge Lake. Excellent sandwiches and burgers and something for everyone. Great selection of beer as well.

“Lunch At Slickers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

My wife and I found ourselves in Old Forge at the peak of Fall color. Lunch at Slickers sounded like a wonderful idea. We each enjoyed a fish sandwich which included a large pc. of freshly battered and fried Haddock which hung out on both side of a good sized roll. A wedge of lemon, tartar sauce and some crisp potato chips were also on the plate. The restaurant was a little rustic but, clean. The server was very efficient and our plates were delivered in a timely manner. The view out the window was very nice. We will definitely be back another time!

“Great Roadhouse!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We've been eating at Slickers for years and in my opinion its a great little tavern/roadhouse. The food is always tasty, and consistent; if you order the same thing more than once, it tastes just as good the second time. The service is not great, but adequate and the prices are what you might expect. Slickers is a necessary stop to fully enjoy the Old Forge experience.

“Eat the happy hour shrimp!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Great local bar complete with big crowds, great views and an unbeatable shrimp deal during happy hour. I devoured a huge plate of tasty spicy shrimp for about $5.00. Great crowd, clearly plenty of regulars at the bar. Very enjoyable.

“Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

The restaurant was very clean. The ambiance was perfect. We were seated quickly; there were a lot of customers, at 1:00 in the afternoon. There were eight of us for dinner. We asked to sit in the bar for our cocktails and we were not pushed by the bar tender to have more than we wanted. I had their Clam Chowder for an appetizer and steak for my outré. My wife had the same as I had. The others had a verity of items on the menu. The waitress was very congenial, and attentive. She checked with us several, not annoying, to see if our food and drinks were ok. We were not at all rushed. We were happy and satisfied when we left the restaurant. The pricing was on the high side but worth every bit of it. We would not hesitate going there again.
