Walking from our hotel to Old Forge for the Christmas activities and encountered a cute lively bar/restaurant. Fish fry was excellent and reasonable. Centrally located.

Bands and barbeques seem to be popular here in the summer. It is a fun party atmosphere most of the summer. Winter is quieter but still very welcoming.

A local hang-out, based on the number of diners greeted by name. The food (fish fries) was outstanding, drinks were very good. Only drawback, for us, was the noise level. It was NOT outrageous, but made conversation difficult.

Not a lot open at night in Old Forge mid October. This place has a very small bar area in the rear that's almost impossible to get to and it gets a little loud when so many are watching and cheering for football. We put our name in with the hostess and had to wait for a table to open.... More

We arrived in Old Forge late and there isn't a lot of restaurants open after 8:00 pm. So, we went to Slickers and while the menu is what you'd expect at a bar/restaurant, sandwiches and such, I have to say that it was very good. I had a grilled chicken sandwich and it was an actual chicken breast not some... More

Decent beer selection. It's not the prettiest place, but the burgers are great! My hubby had the French dip and that was good too. Big portions.

Hasn't had changes in many many years. Typical pub fare, however pretty decent food. They try to do some homemade items, but pizza wings and steak sub are probably the best of the typical flare. Floors are uneven, rooms are dark and closed off, but it's the typical local old style buildings. Restrooms are a joke unless you're a little... More

The place was an older sports, bar leaning more toward a older bar. We were sat relatively quickly and got our food without any issues. The fish was a nice quality fresh fish and the other food was good to. The prices were average.

Order the steak sandwich and enjoy. Drinks are reasonably priced, and the service was very good. Perfect view of everything that is going on in Old Forge!
