“Eat Here !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Yes, eat here--enjoy a buffalo burger--this place serves the best ones I've ever eaten. The French fries are very good as well-not greasy at all. They also have a good varied menu. The building has plenty of atmosphere to boot--from the old wooden floors below to the tin ceiling above. Wooden tables and benches along with tables going down the center. You will also see a lot of animal heads up on the wall--sure to be of interest if you travel with children. The service was ok and our order came quickly--not much waiting time--but we were here early in the season and you might have a wait once the season gets going. If you are in Traverse City you should not pass up the opportunity to eat here.

“Atmosphere Galore!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Wonderful atmosphere. An old time saloon, with barstools, wooden floors, tin ceiling and walls filled with a wide range of taxidermied heads from moose to deer. Good food. Great fries. Love the burgers. If you're looking for a little history to go with your meal, and a great place to let your eyes wander while you're eating, this is the place. Convenient to Front street. Very close to the water. Also very close to the hospital.

“TC Legend - good burers!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Sleders is a TC legend - 100+ year old bar with lots of character and famous burgers. Good variety too, like Mexican, salads, and fish. Great laid back fun. They were a little short staffed, but i'm sure that will change as the summer gets going. Definitely a go back.

“Good neighborhood bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Great food and atmosphere in a very fun, vintage looking bar just west of the downtown area. The decor is unique... lots of stuffed (think dead) animals. The burgers are delicious, but try the perch or smelt if available. Our server was very friendly. When you're finished, walk across the street for dessert at the local ice cream stand.
