Had the pleasure of buying the walleye special for lunch. The best fish ever - lightly breaded and seasoned just right. It included cole slaw, fries or onion rings, or mac and cheese. Next time I am going to split the meal with someone. It was my first time eating at Slyders. What a gem for a local neighborhood bar.... More

I love SLYDER'S! Maybe it's because it's so familiar to me, having grown up in the area! But the food is delicious. The all drum wings are the best, the prices are so good! The beer selection is so good. It's such a neighborhood mainstay, so homey feeling. It's BUSY on the weekends! Love it!

This was our second trip to Slyder's for their "Best in Dayton" burgers. Oh my gosh, they are delicious and prices are fantastic! I had a 7 oz. cheeseburger loaded with everything with chips for $6.45. I mean the burgers are so juicy, and it's such a fun place. It's the old neighborhood bar, and the waitress was as nice...

Yet another local eatery I revisited for the first time in several years. The good news is this small tavern is exactly as I remember it, great burgers and all. Friendly staff and good service also remains the same. The only down side is limited seating and limited on premise parking. Was amused today when an employee announced the tow... More

Really good hole in the wall. Best burgers and good chili .Even a respectable beer selection. The Thursday night special burger is the best

I held the name of this place in my mind for years, curious about their "best burger" rep. Finally went and had one, and...it was good...not "bring me to my knees" great, but satisfying and certainly priced right. The much bigger surprise was the wings...my now favorite wings anywhere...which is saying something! These are what classic buffalo wings were meant... More

I've been here twice. I had one of their burgers the first time which was big with lots of fries. The second time I had their Friday Fish and Chip special. Both were very good. There is long line during the weekend during dinner. You need to give your name when coming in and taking first available spots. It averaged... More

If you know what a "neighborhood bar" is you know what to expect. Chain Bar & Grill along with Brew Pubs have nearly eliminated them. That this one survived is a tribute to how authentic it is and how good the food is. Come here & meet Joe (the owner). Ask him about the history of the place. You'll see... More

We were so happy that we found Slyders on Trip Advisor. It is a great neighborhood treasure! Great food, phenomenal prices, and fun people. The mushroom swiss burger was great, more than I could eat. My husband, along with many of the Slyders regulars, enjoyed the Walleye special. Generous portions and unbelievable prices. Expect to be greeted by the owner... More

We go in all the time. Food is fabulous. Best hamburger and fries. It is a bar with mutiple tv's and a jukebox. It does have more than hamburgers. I have never had a meal we didn't like.
