We are usually pleased with Slack's, but very disappoint in their St. Patrick's Day dinner of Corned Beef and cabbage. The corned beef was tough and fatty. My husband ordered his filet mignon and it was served perfectly. What they do consistently, they do well, but they have to up their game on the specials.
We celebrated my husband's birthday here - next to a party celebrating a woman's 100th birthday! She was lovely! But back to the food - awesome. We had the French Onion Soup which was delectable, and the bread with garlic oil was out of this world good. My husband had an excellent, well-cooked rib eye and I had the balsamic chicken with sauteed spinach, goat cheese and lardons - OH MY!! Definitely no room for dessert. You will not be disappointed with the food, the service (excellent) or the atmosphere!!
Very enjoyable evening, looking forward to going again.
Seafood and steak restaurant located inside Plainridge Park Casino. Fun atmosphere and great selection of seafood. I particularly like the Atlantic Cod dish.
We arrived a little early and we were seated within a few minutes. The staff was busy yet attentive. The food was very good. Always a nice time !
Consistent as always. I had filet medium rare and it was perfect. My husband shared mussels with my daughter and enjoyed them very much. We all shared the walnut and beet salad which we also enjoyed.
Food was ok . Lobster salad roll had shells in it! Oysters were good but also had shells in them. Waiter was good just a little disappointing to have examine what you eat after each bite
Donna our waitress waitress was wonderful. Food good. We will come back.
Food is just OK, absolutely nothing to rave about. Food is overpriced. Been there several times and at least once every other time the food has to be sent back or redone for errors that the kitchen should have caught before sending it out to the diner.
My wife and I ordered the special shrimp and steak. The food was served very quickly and was very. Good.
Great ambience. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. I had shrimp scampi and my husband had scallops. Only disappointment for my husband was the lobster bisque. Wasn’t as creamy as he has had at other restaurants and tasted a little too much like scherry had already been added to it. Lobster chunks were great though.
There's nothing more to say than everything was perfect!
Crab cakes not good at all to much stuffing and the carb meat not enough
The food and menu were fantastic, and it’s in a convenient location. However, we were disappointed in the staff - they lacked luster and attentiveness. We’ll most like try it again because the food was so good. I would recommend giving it a try if you’re in the area.
We eat here at least a couple of times a week the food is usually good the service is usually fare depending on who you get for a waiter Stephen is very good we have surf and turf It was cooked the way we wanted and it was tasty but the service was slow we even had ask twice for drinks Overall we enjoyed it
Have been there many times and will be back soon.
Service is very good and fish is always fresh.
Service with a smile, good food, great wine. Very Enjoyable.
The staff is always friendly, polite and personable. I have never gotten a dish that I did not like. The finish area is extremely clean
The raw bar was astounding - great quality and amazing flavor. Service is great and quick.
Service was fair, requested high top, about 6 were available but was seated at literally the lowest table in the middle of the floor, felt like back in kindergarten.
Server was pleasant but service was very slow. Kitchen seemed backed up despite many empty tables. Food was good but not remarkable.
Very good service but most importantly they have wonderful fish dinners,
Steak was very flavorful ,and the bread was warm so good
Always consistent with food and service. Fabulous place to eat!
First time dining at Slack's and was very pleased. Food was delicious and the service was great as well! Will definitely eat there again!
Lobster roll with stale bread, fishy tasting lobster meat and cold French fries.
We ordered Caesar with shrimp and got under dressed limp Romain with inedible dry chicken.
Multiple inefficient servers.
Freezer burned sorbet without the tuile listed on menu.
Food court would have been better fare or drive through on the way home.
Avoid this place.
Had a nice dinner with friends at the restaurant after a little time in the casino. Warm and welcoming. Delicious meal. Good location.
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....
fish dry no flavor lemon risotto no taste garlic spinach no garlic.reserved table had table in bar area.
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.
Service Bad. Brought wrong drinks and slow. Meal was horrible and I asked for a manager to email me which im still waiting.
Great atmosphere. The host was personable and entertaining. Waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. The food was amazing.
Good spot for seafood.
What a great restaurant. Excellent staff, excellent food, excellent service. I would recommend going here for any occasion, for a date, for a birthday or just to go out and have fun. I'll definitely be making plans to go back there again soon.
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.
we have eaten here before always good but a little pricey
Excellent steaks and the best lobster deviled eggs — must have!!
