Slack’s Oyster House & Grill
Great service ... food was good not incredible. A bit pricy for it ... but you get a lot. I was expecting something different.
Truly, a diamond in the rough; who would think there would be such a nice restaurant in the casino in Plainville? The entire Plainridge Casino, including Slack's is smoke free - which is extremely attractive, but then Slack's restaurant itself tucked into the corner of the building offers true ambiance, class, service and tasty food - seafood and beef.
We were brought to our table by Paul, who is a charming and hospitable maitre d' and provided us the best seat in the house. Jay our exceptional waiter followed and was excellent throughout the night. Although, the casino can be very entertaining to many, we only went to Slack's and went home; worth the easy trip down Rt. 1 by Rt. 495 - parking galore or use the valet service!
amazing food, great drinks and excellent service!!!!
We waited over an hour and never got our food!! We had to leave -- the manager never even comped us free food -- pathetic.
Everything was fine. The server was very attentive and the food was great. Can’t wait to go back again.
Frankly, the place was not busy at all but the service was not good.
was recommended here by a friend 6.30 reservations and were sat down on time. ordered an appetizer and got scallops wrapped in prosciutto which came out fast and were very good. Entree was a different story and was quite a wait which was almost 30 minutes after apps. ordered 20oz ribeye which was cooked as ordered and tasted good but they forgot my baked potato. My wifes filet mignon was ordered med well and came out med rare but we waited so long to get it she didnt want to send it back. Waitress said the order took so long because my wife ordered med well. So much for that excuse. Drinks were good and reasonable.
not at all, it was 20 minutes before we saw a waitress, and the place was half full,. we didnot receive any bread although our surrounding tables had bread, when we finally asked we received 2 small rolls, it was an hour 10 minutes before we had dinner, my wife's surf and turf, the steak was charred and unapealing and her stuffed shrimp was cold. the entire meal took an hour and a half, without dessert. dont know where the problem was but it certainly needs fixing.Will not go there again
Waitress brought wrong side dish, when informed, brought the right one, but still kept both dishes on the bill
We had a 7:30 reservation, we arrived on time, just 2 of us. Our waitress Mary was good, she was definitely busy. We ordered cocktails and when they were delivered we ordered out dinner, surf and turf and a NY Sirloin. It was 45 minutes before our dinners arrived. I spoke to the manager, he said everyone was waiting an hour due to the $100,000 cash event happening in the casino. Well, there were many open tables in the restaurant. That comment did not make sense. He did offer to take 10% off of our bill. We still spent $125 for two people. food was good but we should not have waited that long for our meals. We have been here 3 or 4 times previously, without an issue
Missed Karen the greatest waitress ever
Had a friend from out of town visiting and we both enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere of Slack's. No more expensive than other restaurants. Waitress was very attentive and helpful explaining the dishes. Will go back again.
We had a wonderful experience celebrating a family member's 85th birthday. The food was delicious and the staff, professional and attentive.
The food was good, portion size good.
Service was lacking. Friendless was not there. Not genuine at all. Noise was poor but this was due to other patrons arguing very loudly. I have also eaten at the pub there and will be retuning. Service friendlier and genuine.
our waitress MARY was VERY VERY DELIGHTFUL...
even thou the Pat's lost a good time was had..
I never complain but I have to tonight. This was absolutely the worst dining experience I’ve ever had. I expect to wait on nye I know it’s not the best night to dine out. But with a prix fix menu at 85.00 pp I at the least expect a decent meal. 915pm Rezi was sat at 930pm. Host thanked for us waiting an hour and a half for our food and we said we just got there and was waiting for table. Should have known then. No server til 945pm restaurant was only half full. Took order came back cuz she forgot it. Then told us she put it in but forgot what we were drinking. No food until 1035. That was the appetizer crab cakes. Two Caesar salads never came. Meals came at 1045pm both were wrong supposed to be prime rib and it was a filet. The one that was supposed to be fillet was cooked wrong. Got server she went to remake. Got manager to nicely let him know didn’t care about waiting but then meals were wrong. Came back five minutes later with prime rib and said he took one meal off bill. Prime rib was not done medium it was so rare it was bleeding on plate. That’s a health code issue. Ate two bites of fillet two bites of prime rib all veggies cold. So disgusted asked for bill. Paid for the one meal we didn’t eat no salads and didn’t get the desserts. Just wanted out of there. Starving when we left after paying a 91.00 bill plus tip which we still left. I would never go back here. All servers looked miserable and outs said she was done. They all looked like they were. Poor manager just looked defeated. Bad service bad food I would never go back. Should have put the money in a slot machine and got a burger at the food court. Horrible ruined our night and my birthday
The dinner took 2.5 hrs. It was new years eve so there might have been a problem making and serving the meal. It was a fixed plate. 4 courses. Everything tasted great just too long to seat for a meal
Very disappointed, had reservations for dinner, which i had to confirm twice only to arrive and be told that it was a limited prearranged menu. I was not made aware of this, which i found frustrating as i said i had to confirm twice via email. They did not offer their signature 3lb lobster, only a stuffed option which they claimed was cooked to order but they couldn't steam them, they had to be stuffed, and the price was a $120, granted that included salad and sides, but 120 for a stuffed lobster? If i had known of the arranged menu, i would have gone to Fred and Steves instead.
The chefs in the kitchen need to come out and meet the guests to meet them and ask why the complaints
to keep the returns from going back to the kitchen....the food is always cold, and not prepared fresh.
You guys need to hear from us in the dining room and hear your problems to do a better job at our dinners to save the reputation of the restaurant so people will keep coming back to Slacks!
Reservation was for 5 pm. We sat right on time. Only one other table was seated. It was a restricted menu because of New Years Placed our orders around 515 Did not get served until 645 pm !!! Ordered salad not delivered. Order soft drink not delivered! All other tables being served. We were first told we had appetizers and then told the salad person was confused then we were told it was a new menu! Sorry but too many excuses and not sure what was true.
By the time we got the food we weren’t hungry!
Manager gave 25% off of bill. My opinion they should have comped the meal. Ruined our entire night
Don’t think we will be going back
I can't believe I waited so long to eat here. I'll be back again.
Service was fantastic! Food delicious. We always have a great meal at Slacks!
Totally awesome...Hidden gem
Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was delicious. Large portions. We were so full we couldn’t get dessert! The drinks were great. We had Margaritas. The only negative would be it took a little longer than I’d like to get our second drink, it didn’t seem too busy so I’m not sure why, but overall that’s not a big deal. Excellent experience and atmosphere. Can’t wait to go back and will be telling everyone I know!
Food was served nice and hot and very tasty. Look forward to dining there again.
Slack's was the best yet, period. Karen, our server was outstanding, food was great and and abundant, and we could hold a conversation without high pitch talk. Very pleasant and relaxing. Thank you Karen, you really made our night out so good. Thank you Slack's for making fine dining happen. George and Shirley, Wakefield, RI.
Nice surprise! Hadn't been there before. Great steak and seafood options. Excellent service. Nice quiet ambiance, people watching through the glass wall to the casino. My wife and I really enjoyed it!
Outstanding food and service!
Great service from a very well trained server. The food was excellent and the presentation was above average. If your planning a date night or celebrating any special occasion give Slack's a try.
Our server was amazing! He was very attentive and very informative. The kitchen was overly accommodating to my dietary needs (dairy free). The oysters were amazing and my salmon was cooked perfectly. We will be coming back!
Two of us had the veal parm special and it was quite good. The portions were huge. My husband had the filet mignon. It was exactly cooked the way he wanted it, but it was still very tasty. Overall, it was a nice meal. MaryLou was great as always.
Wonderful experience. Didn’t know what to expect. Pleasantly surprised. Food was amazing. One of the best Caesar salads I have ever had and my tuna was triple the size I
normally receive. Our waiter was awesome. Will definitely return
Somewhat disappointing. Service was excellent but ambiance and food quality mediocre. As a result, the value just wasn't there for the cost.
Our server Donna was amazing. She was very hospitable and she made sure our dinning experience exceptional.
Had salmon which was cooked great. My husband had scallops. Mary
Lou was excellent.
I normally never do reviews but the exceptional service and absolutely delicious food prompted me to do so..
Would highly reccomend the scallops parmesan, Scallops wrapped with prosciutto and the halibut.. Best food we have had in a long time.
Over cooked food, over sauced entrees, over dressed salads.
the people are very nice. the kitchen is inconsistent. sometimes the food is great, and other times... not so much. this meal, the kitchen struggled with my order (clambake), but the same order for another person in my party was excellent.
great restaurant, been here twice. the salmon dish was wonderful
