My wife and I ate ate there on 5/29. I ordered a chicken caesar salad and she had the golden and red beet salad with salmon. To start we had the calamari. The entire dinner was a disaster. We waited approximately 15 minutes for two...drinks, a bud light and proseco. Maybe 20 to 25 people in the whole place. The calamari was served cool to luke warm. The caesar salad was served chicken on the side which was luke warm and the salad portion on the other side, not chopped up, just served whole. I never saw anything like this, it was just weird. I've had many caesar salads but none where I have to chop my own lettuce. The beet salad was better but the salmon was luke warm. Note to Slacks Oyster House; If you want to consider yourself a high end restaurant, then perform like one. It only got weirder when a complaint was put in to the server who brought it to the manager, Bubbas' attention and he removed the salad from the bill but kept the charge for the chicken because the chicken was partially eaten. This was soon resolved and the dish was taken off the bill. Maybe it was just a bad night at Slacks but I won't be finding out if it was because I would never go back. Not acceptable for a higher end restaurant.More

No personality/conversation in bartender Jane. Her eyes were always down and not attentive. 45 min for a charcuterie I can easily have done at home (basic basic). Jane never asked if I wanted a water nor did she provide an update on LONG charcuterie. Were...going to order dinner but we didn’t have til midnight. Her response was that the kitchen got busy - there could not have been 10 tables occupied at 9pm. One and done.More

Many choices for yummy raw oysters. Rest of menu is tasty as well. Went for a birthday party. A bit expensive yet it is in a casino so expected. Wonderful service.

So why do we give places 5 stars? I like to believe its for a combination of great food, great service, value for money and how well maintained the establishment is. So i give 5 stars to Slacks for all over the above reasons. The...location is great also, right off the casino floor but the casino noise and madness was unobtrusive, we had a reservation but it looked like you could possibly get a table if you walked up and were prepared to wait a smidge. The host was a delightful chap who chatted to us whilst our table was being prepared and then sat us and gave us a brief insight to the menu. The restaurant itself i like a lot, there's plenty of room between tables and the chairs were incredibly comfy, the glasses, utensils and table were all spotlessly cleaned. Our server was Mary who was pleasant and was personable and took our drinks and app order not long after we sat down, as she disappeared the host ran over with a basket of warm rolls, i like the team work. We had the wedge salad that was excellent, nice and crisp and lots of blue cheese crumbles. For mains we went with seafood with me going off the menu a little with the halibut but served with what usually comes with the salmon, the lemon caper risotto, a very good call as both were cooked perfectly and were delicious. #2 went with the baked cod with fingerling potato and spinach, i tried some and was very impressed with both the quality and quantity of the dish, so both very good choices. The steaks looked good and we saw the cornish game hen being served which also looked very cook. Had no room for dessert and the check came expeditiously after we were finished, prices were incredibly reasonable, couple of glasses of wine, app and dinner all for under a $100 so all in all a very enjoyable evening.More

Celebrated 53 at Slack's. Food selections are great, I ordered the Baked Cod, came with sauteed spinach and delicious fingerling potatoes - excellent combo. Everything was really good. Husband had the shrimp scampi and said it was very good. They offered free dessert for my...birthday - ordered the chocolate cake and it was superb. Service was efficient and the entire staff is delightful. With visits from all levels of staff to ensure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend Slacks for any special dinner, or even on those nights when you want something more than a burger.More

My husband and I went for a date night and were impressed with the food and especially our server Karen. She was pleasant and attentive. We did not have to wait for our apps,dinner or drinks. She understood we were on a time crunch with...our babysitter but we were enjoying our time without the kids. Thank you so much Karen. So lovely to have a place we would not hesitate to return too.More

Returned to Slacks, the other day, for dinner, while at the casino and it was very good. Fish platter was ample with large, sweet scallops, plump shrimp, whole belly clams and a generous portion of flaky haddock. Also, had a huge baked potato and some...nice coleslaw. Mary Lou, our waitress was so very pleasant. This is a great choice for more than pub food, while at Plainridge. Only wish they had better hours.More

Whenever I am in the area, I stop by here to eat. The front check-in area people are always very nice. The wait staff always has there "A" game. The Shrimp Cocktail is a must have item. The horseradish is atomic (Love it). The onion...soup is excellent. The Seafood Newburg was a very large portion. The Prime Rib Special was good, but next time I will stick with a steak on the menu, they are always outstanding.More

Slacks provided the illusion of a high class dining experience however I would rate it as just average. Pricing was moderate to high and the location is understandably less that optimul being that its located within a casino but the completely clear windows all around...the resturaunt make you feel like an animal on display as the casino patrons on the gaming floor and sitting at slot machines directly on the other side of the glass constantly peer in and stare at you eating it's a bit uncomfortable. Some frosted glass would have went a long way here. The food quality was average but far from the high end pricing model they have decided to go with. Dinner for 2 cost me $90 with tipMore
