When I go out to eat, I care mainly about the food. The service and portions at Slick's were good enough to keep it from earning no stars, but the food was not something I'd care to eat again. For the same price, I could have gotten much better food at a number of other nearby places (all of which I hope to review in the near future).

I will add that there was a robust selection of alcohol, and that Slick's appears to be a better bar than it is a restaurant.

Would I eat there again: No.
