I can't honestly tell you what the Food is like at Slacker's, since we walked in, were pretty much 'ignored' for the 1st 2-3 minutes, and then we noticed how loud and smoky the place was.
We decided not to stay (since 2 of us are allergic to smoke) and found a better restaurant just a few steps away! (84 Thai Food)

We are sorry you had a bad experience here at Slackers. We have recently decided to go non-smoking and have revamped our entire menu, look and specials. Along with that we have added extra training to the staff to ensure we get to you much quicker. We hope you give us another chance if you are ever back this way.

Regards, Jon Slack

If you like the sports bar atmosphere, you will probably like this place. For me, I decided quickly that I would take my burger to go and back to my hotel. The burger was very good, though, and the waitress brought it to me quickly, so I could escape the TVs and smoke pretty quickly.

I enjoyed this place -- the waitresses dress attractively, and for some reason were all petite size zeros. it is a little different--there is a TV at each table and you can get a remote for yours and change the channel. The sign said free Wii and X-Box as well, though we didn't ask for one. 10 beers on tap, good appetizers, free buffet fridays.

We went to this place to see the NFC title game between the Packers and the Bears. The place was 90% Packers fans and it was jammed, not an extra seat to be found. We sat at the bar. Had a marguerita ($7) and nachos.($8.95) to share. Neither were exceptional. But the scene was fun, including nice bar tenders.

For those of us who like non-smoking restaurants and bars, this place was one to avoid. It seemed likeat least 50% of the clientele were chain smokers. When I got to the cruise ship the next day, I had to wash out my polo shirt, it was so stinky! Also adversely affected my nose for the following week. So, if you tolerate smoke well, go for it. If not, beware. In fairness, the people at the nearby Hampton Inn told us in advance it was smokey by reputation. And it was.
