2nd time here, and nothing has changed. It's a very overrated place with a big, AVERAGE burger that taste just like it would if you or your mother fried it in a skillet at home. I guess some people are just astonished that it's a...little bigger than the bun and ignore quality or especially taste. It's ain't Five Guys, Smashburger, E.O., or even Bunkers or Red Robin.More

Excellent! Brad and Jason were working very hard to keep everything sanitary between guests. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The cheeseburger did not disappoint! Overall seems to be a great place for a good bite 😁

My coworkers and I have become impeccable "Friday Female Foodies," as we've checked out our 5th neighborhood restaurant, some familiar, some new to us. Slyder's Tavern was new to most of us, but none of us have become "regulars." However, after our visit, we just...might. We enjoyed the chicken wrap, fish sandwich and a very good hamburger. We had ample portions, along with chips and pickles. This place is hopping even at lunchtime on Friday. We've opted to partake again, as we enjoy supporting local fare during this pandemic. All precautions were observed, and the staff was attentive. I highly recommend this place!More

It didn't use to be this way, but if you park on east side of building the company next store will have your car towed off. It is not signed very well on this. The people working at Slyders are not nice when they tell...you this, as if everybody is a regular and knows this. They forget occasional customers are NEEDED to stay in business also. Other than the new parking problems, the food is still good. Good place, Good Music, just know east side of building is now a tow away zone, it wasn't for many years.More

So many people have always told me that I have to get a burger there so I stopped by myself to check it out. The guy there wasn't friendly and said they didn't have enough space to waste time on one person unless I wanted...to drink a bunch of beer and I said nope I'm just here for lunch and he said then I can't put you on the wait list for just one person so I left and got lunch elsewhere. If they won't take my business when I'm alone then I will never go there with anybody else.More

The walleye is available only on Fridays and is not on the menu! Comes with slaw and either Mac and cheese or fries. The Mac and cheese tends to run out by end of lunch. Get there early! Servings are huge. Priced under $10.

Awesome walleye, Cole slaw, with Mac and cheese. Large servings too. Friendly service and good selection of local craft beers on tap. Staff and environment compliant with current masking and distancing guidelines—of which I’m generally critical, but this was great and indulgent experience.

The food was great, we had the fish special, the chili salad and a Reuben. The waitress was friendly and we had a room for ourselves.

When walking in you just New it was going to be god. At the bar area it looked like everyone was a local and showed up everyday. With a large selection of beer that is where I started followed by one of the best bacon...cheeseburgers that I have Weber had!! The onion rings also were cooked to perfection.More

I really loved this place and we went there at least every month. The last 6 times we have been in in 2018 & 2019 have been disappointing to the point that I don't expect to be back. The worst example was when we waited...over an hour to get a table, then waited over an hour to get food, and then food was cold. I asked the manager / owner what was going on. He said the kitchen was really busy and said he was sorry. I just dont understand how being busy makes food slow and cold. If it is slow, it seems that it should at least be fresh when they finally get to it.More

Been going to Slyder's Tavern since 1973 - 1988 and recently visited again when we were back in Dayton for a visit. The place hasn't changed much. Our favorite round booth is gone and the "Crying Room" is now a group or overflow room. Current...owner's have kept much the same - menu has a few trendy and popular items added. You can bring the kids, even newborns as the place is quiet, mostly older folks talking over a cold beer. Great burgers, fries, salads! What more could you ask for in a neighborhood tavern? Plenty of off street parking, handicapped accessible but restrooms might be a bit tight. Covered patio out front for smokers. Thanks Slyder's for all of the great memories!More

I doubt it but it would be worth eating the insides with no bread.
