Again the food was AWESOME. The beet salad, mussels and short ribs (so tender did not need a knife). Cheryl our server was spot on as usual and very sociable. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Try to go every couple of weeks. The service is always spot on. The mussels, French Onion Soup, Beet Salad, drinks and of course the desserts are out of this world. Thanks for another nice evening.

The food has always been good but some of the dishes are very over priced. 4 scallops on a small dish of white rice are $36. No salad, no rolls. Not even a vegetable with it. (You can add a side for $9!) so if you want a veggie with your 4 scallops — it will cost you $45.

The staff are very nice and what you do get is very good.
Currently, it is the only full serve restaurant in the casino and it’s only open 3 days a week.

not what it used to be
food to expensive for what you got
had salad with greens and 2 little tomatoes they didn't have onions peppers or cucumbers and no bread !
that's terrible
baked potatoe cam in a little dish didn't look appetizing at all
sword fish was ok
went to use my 30$ comp that was on my app and she said it wasn't there go tell a hostess ! really
what happened to it ? i only booked because i had that
we had to pay 60$ for that horrible meal
i am trying to speak to someone about food coupon nobody calls back

will never eat there again as a elite player
after december will be done and take my self to encore

My group of 6 people enjoyed the cheese tray . It was just enough not to lessen our appetite for the main entree. Our dinners were cooked to each individuals request . Our server was very attentive yet not overbearing. I have at Slack's numerous times and look forward to doing so again soon.

We ordered a special for an appetizer..baked oysters topped with breadcrumbs..it arrived cold. It never got put in the oven! I sent it back, came back hot, but taste was bland. I ordered the scallops with orzo and my husband got a veal chop with baked potato. My husband's meal was hot. Mine was cold. Evidently the orzo always comes cold..again sent it back and after 5 minutes scallops came back hot. We were very patient with everything and we were offered 2 complimentary desserts. I won't return for a while. Food is good, but not acceptable when it arrives cold.

The food is very good and the portions are well thought out and you do not walk out hungry, that is for sure!
My filet was a bit overdone, and the waitress noticed it, before I could even mention it, and had another one cooked for me right away. I was still able to eat my meal, with my group, without missing a beat.
Our waitress, Cheryl was really pleasant and we look forward to going back to see her and eating here again!

The food was very good as was our service. A paper placemat at the least would have been nice. Salt and pepper shakers. A glass of water without asking. A napkin under our drinks. It felt like a sandwich shop as opposed to a nice restaurant.

Slacks is a very good restaurant which is usually unexpected in a small casino.
We have dined there many times and enjoyed our dinner.
This time the menu was a bit limited.
The Tequila Shrimp appetizer was no longer on the menu.
And the Filet Oscar with Asparagus was not a choice anymore.
Surprisingly there was no Shrimp or Veal entree.
The Steamed Mussels were excellent.
Swordfish and Salmon were great.
Aside from the limited menu, expect anything you order to be top quality.
The Chef is certainly knowledgeable.
Greeted at door with professionalism and warmth.
Good service.
For the caliber of food the dining room could have a little more atmosphere.
Excellent restaurant!

We were surprised.. The food was excellent. I had the pork chop dinner and I must say, the chef did it perfect with his choice of additions. My Husband had his steak cooked to perfection. A very good experience will do it again.

We were told when we arrived that they were on minimum staff and were told to be patient which is understandable . Our waitress was very pleasant , but the drinks took forever to come and mine was incorrect . They also said they did not have draft beer due to covid which none of us understood. The atmosphere was very loud with numerous intoxicated patrons strolling in from the casino . Our food was on the pricier end , took forever to come out and only came with one small side - other sides were available to order but only “ family size “ . Our meals were just ok and certainly not with the cost .

My guest raved about her salmon. It was the best she ever had. And, the prime rib dish was excellent also. I only wish the menu selections could have been greater. But, still, we experienced great tasting choices!

Excellent dining experience. Our server, Donna was great. She was attentive and made wonderful food suggestions. We had a chef’s special, veal tomahawk, which was cooked perfectly. Along with Donna, the hostess was awesome too. Also, the manager was overseeing the dining experience walking around checking with customers and servers. Overall, Slacks is one if our favorite restaurants. We highly recommend it!
