“Boring”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

The meal did not live up to the friendly welcome,nor to the comfort and appearance of the restaurant. Nothing was bad, but nothing was great either. Portions were good, but there was not much flavor to anything. All in all a bland experience.

"Ouch"..your 2 star review: "Boring, bland and not much flavor", really hurts, but probably doesn't hurt as much as you having to actually pay for your sub par meal. Boy, we really must have been off our game the night you visited. So, please, Ancient43, it would really help us if you would let us know which items you ordered so we can go over them with a microscope and make adjustments, so no one else has a similar experience. Actual, constructive, detailed customer feedback is one of the key ways we can "fix" a problem, it's how we learn to be better. Any response would be greatly appreciated, and we thank you in advance for taking a few moments of your time. ps, we also do thank you for the 4 stars each on atmosphere and service. Sincerely, Cindy A. owner for 31 years

“Slocums”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We felt very fortunate to find Slocums in Mammoth Springs after a long day on the road and two failed attempts to find a decent place to eat closer to our motel. The dining room was full when we arrived but we were seated within ten minutes. We had the Fish & Chips which was excellent. The service was good and the Host and Server were friendly and attentive. We would definitely recommend this place.

“a decent meal and a good price-performer”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

I ate here for the first time, with a friend, a few days ago. We both enjoyed the food and service, and found the price reasonable. We'd both come here again.

“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

What a great place. I ate dinner here with my wife and two children on a Saturday evening. We arrived in time to enjoy some of the happy hour specials. My daughter ordered the happy hour cheese burger. It was $4 for a great burger and fries. She loved it. The restaurant has a low-light setting that adds to the warm mood of the establishment. While enjoying a few of the local brews that they have on tap we ordered the Gouda Mac-and-Cheese with bacon added in. You must order this. It was absolutely the BEST mac-and-cheese we've ever had. It was rich, creamy and fabulous in every way. The service was wonderful and we had a great time. I will definitely be visiting here again.

And a Great Big AWESOME THANK YOU for your 5 STAR "AWESOME EXPERIENCE" review!! You hit on to two of our customers' "foodie cult-following" favorites: smoked gouda mac'cheese with bacon and our Happy Hour $4 happy cheeseburger with fries. Really glad you liked them. We also put a great deal of effort into creating that warm and comfortable "feel" you and your family enjoyed; as well as a Staff who are passionate about giving you the best service experience possible. It's so great when someone not only notices, but actually takes the time to tell others. Thanks from all of us at Slocums! Cindy A. owner for 31 years
