Slack’s Oyster House & Grill Ratings and Reviews
We made reservations for 2 for 7pm Saturday night. We were seated promptly and waited 7-10 minutes for the waitress to take our drink orders. Our drinks were prepared and left at the serving station on the bar for 15 minutes then delivered. We were given bread and that was the last person to visit our table. After a total of 40 minutes we had 2 drinks and no opportunity to place a food order so we left.
It appears both Slack's and Flutie's Sports Pub run into staffing problems on this (all?) Saturday nights. We ended up eating at the food court and got pretty good burgers.
So we won't go back on a Sat night.
It was kind of weird!! The hostess who just had a dumbfounded look on her face and really couldn’t speak up....I guess she was mumbling something about that Open table should not have taken our reservation.
But once she let us in after clearing a table the waiter was very good.
My only problem after that was that they were all out of the lump crab ravioli.
I eat dinner all over the city of Boston but had $175 in credits from the casino which need to be spent accordingly before the end of the year. In all my years of eating out this may be the worst food and service combined of anyplace I have ever eaten....The piece of Salmon served to me tasted like someone had put chemicals on it and was inedible I settled for a cup of Lobster Bisque which wasn't half bad. Thee appetizers were poorly prepared but had some value but were served cold because the service was like a fire drill rather than a smooth cohesive unit! At the end of the night I wanted to pay the bill and run out it was so bad on all accounts and should be shuttered for a better option run by pro's like Capital Grill, Grill 23, or Mortons....
Being in the casino area makes it good for people watching. Service was great, servers and wait staff were friendly. The food was good but felt pricey for being in the casino environment. We had the baked cod, very good and the broiled scallop Parmesan was good, didn’t know it came in a casserole heavy on the butter.
First of all I’m not a Casino guy so my review is somewhat tainted, but my friends suggested having dinner there as often try new venues. With that said I found the food overly salted. Oysters apps were dry and contained mostly breadcrumbs. Drinks weak. Service was ok. I won’t be back and would not recommend. You never win at a Casino.
Date night with wife, and a little gambling at the casino, yet our main reason was to try this restaurant. We were very pleased with the meal and the value was well worth the visit. Oyster selection was suitable and priced at $3 each regardless of where they were from. We'll definitely be back again.
I got the filet and crab, the lumps of crab were a little small but everything was so delicious it didn't really matter. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful. We highly recommend this place for all occasions. We went for a special event and got filet and chicken but we are dying to go back and try the burgers!!
the restaurant has been improving overall. Steaks and seafoods are the best choices. 2 of our party had the rib eye - it was perfectly cooked and very tasty. we enjoy the oysters Rockefeller and the beet salad. My baked stuffed lobster was good, but they have done better in the past.
Service was terrible. The waiter did not acknowledge us for more than15 minutes after we were seated. We ordered cocktails. They took 20 minutes to arrive. Rolls were served. We had no bread plates. We ordered lobster. When it finally arrived, we had no implements to crack the lobster open. We had no bibs, extra napkins or even a bowl to put the shells into. When we finally caught the attention of our waiter to ask for the proper tools, he took another 10 minutes to bring them. Our food was cold when we could finally begin to eat it. Drinks were OK. My husband said the clam chowder was good. My salad was served with no dressing. Clearly not worth the wait , the lack of service and being ignored by the waitstaff.
My friend and I were going to the casino and thought we would try Slack's since we like seafood. We didn't get off to a great start. When we were seated and I lifted my menu up from the appetizer dish I thought the dish was full of crumbs and told the waiter I needed a clean one. Come to find out that was how the dishes looked. They were white with brown speckles which looked like crumbs. I couldn't decide which entree to get so I asked the waitress Mary. She said the shrimp scampi was spectacular so I went with that. When it came out, the pasta was drenched in butter. I didn't eat much of that and I couldn't detect any garlic, it was very bland. My friend got baked scallops. They looked very dry just the opposite of mine and could have used a little butter. My wedge salad and the bread and oil were good but that was it. My friend and I would not go back.
Food was excellent. Looked for Fired Clams (whole belly) but didn't see any. Clam rolls, clam plates, are popular in MA. Clam cakes w/chowder is another great item. Fried scallop plates are good if small scallops are used. In the case of scallops, bigger is not better. (Wicked Good Food) at Twin River has the best scallop plate ever, even when it was just Lincoln.) Flutie's have the best fish and chips also. Just my observation. We usually go to Flutie's. But I will go to Slacks again. Your waite staff is exceptional and very courteous.
Overall I would say that I enjoyed the meals. The atmosphere was excellent and I found the host/hostess very pleasant. It was very relaxing and I found even the other guests very pleasant.
I looked forward to the occasion and would recommend same to other players.
Food was very good. My husband and I shared the lobster cocktail. I had the shrimp bisque and seafood Newburg. My husband had the beet salad and salmon. The lobster and the bisque were my favorite, although I enjoyed the Newburg as well. My husband liked his salad and entree. Service was ok. The server was very nice, but did not have the skills of a fine dining server. They'd be better off either hiring more polished staff, or not trying to appear quite so high end. But we enjoyed the food, the evening, and our server's pleasant personality. We'll be back.
My cousin and his wife were in from TX and wanted to try seafood on short notice. Food was good and the servings were amble. Waitress was friendly. Crowd was dressed down, this being in a casino. Everything was just fine, but my issue here is the price of the meals. This isn't a Row 34 nor a James Hook and Company, but it was priced like an Ostra! Casino food? I don't know. I had the NY strip cooked perfect, seasoned brilliantly. My cousin had the Clam Bake. Yes, I would try it again sometime for a special occasion.
