5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

After driving all day, my honey and I crossed the street from the Best Western to split a yummy steak and to enjoy a hearty Malbec. What a delight!

“The perfect meal and ambiance after a long drive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

We drove over from Flagstaff, AZ arriving in Mammoth tired and hungry....without consulting TA we just picked SLOCUMS from the signage. GOOD MOVE!
The restaurant is simple elegance, the host was gracious and engaging, our server was fun and timely and the other patrons were a delight!
We ordered pasta dishes and salads. Everything was incredible and very large portions. The complimentary bread was by far the best bread I have ever eaten!
The prices were very reasonable to the ambiance, portion size and quality.
We visited with neighboring patrons who all enjoyed their meals also.
The meal was only out done by the truly fabulous staff!

What can we say but "WOW!" when my husband and I read your 5 STAR review, "everything was incredible"!! Your super review reflected everything Slocums strives to be to all the guests who walk through our doors. And you can bet our Host ("gracious & engaging"), Servers ("truly fabulous Staff") and our top notch Kitchen Crew ("the Perfect Meal) will all be thrilled when I post it on Slocums' Reviews Board. It's so cool you took the time to share your visit, and to recognize all the effort we put into making sure every visit to Slocums is a fun & memorable one. Thanks again, Cindy & Tommy Avena, owners since 1983. Eat * Drink * Laugh!

“Happy Happy Hour + Appetizers + Draft Beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Happy hour is from 4 - 6:30 p.m. Bartenders and crowd are very friendly. Prices are reasonable and my wife's Crown Royal perfect manhattan was excellent. The black Butte Porter draft beer was delicious as was the meatball slider we had. Nice selection of draft beers. They offer a nice selection of discounted appetizers during happy hour. Would go back next time in Mammoth.

Thanks for writing your awsome 4 STAR "Happy Happy Hour Review"!! We advertise "classic cocktails * classic Bartenders" and we are so pleased you enjoyed both, as well as our extensive list of Bar food specials and craft beers. Love Avila Beach....used to race P-Cats there years ago...such a beautiful spot. Thanks again, Cindy A. owner

“Decent food and drink selection, somewhat pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

The service was great, we made it for happy hour but still ended up paying more than we wanted, the food was "ok" nothing to really jump up and down for, but the staff was friendly and it seemed like a good local place to grab a beer and appetizers.

Much appreciation for your 4 STAR review! Do you happen to remember the name of your server? ("great service). The Staff loves to hear good feedback. Everyone gives it their all here, we're very proud of all of them. I see you're from Reno...my husband and I love visiting all the new places popping up in Midtown and by the River...lots of fun R&D. Thanks for taking the time to write. Hope to see you your next visit to Mammoth. Cindy A. owner
