We waited 10 minutes before wait staff approached our table. It took 50 minutes to get our burgers and fries. The fries might have been good when they were warm, but they were cold. The burger was cooked as ordered and very good, but we can get better service with equally good or better food elsewhere.

I had the chili which was very good. For lunch I ordered a sandwich and got something that I didn't order. My son ordered cole slaw and got cottage cheese. I have ate here a few times and the food is always good and service decent. Normally four stars but this time was a let down.

Although we had a large group the service was good. The food was okay but nothing spectacular. Enjoyed the atmosphere of the place and kissing the moose.

Sledders is a very old restaurant and slowly getting more poor. I sat at a table of six with my family and my chair was broke and I had to switch it with another chair. The soup was TWO days old. One of my parents found a hair in their shrimp wrap. 😔. Even with all of the chaos, our... More

Food is okay, nothing special, nothing awful. I feel it has gone down in the last several years or my expectations have risen. The perch seems to be overcooked and rubber on many visits, the fries are okay. The slaw has no real flavor just mayo. I've eaten the burgers and again they don't suck, they just don't kill it....

Great old woodwork, antiques everywhere. Food was no quit up to standards. We were early for dinner and the waitress said they normally didn't serve fried fish until after 5 pm. She thought 430 was early but she would accommodate us. We all ordered fish- mistake. The food took longer than expected and when it came although it was done... More

I came in to TC to meet up with my friend Wendy to shop at the Craft Shows in town. When we both were ready for a break & a CHEER she suggested Sleder's. It's been years since I had been there and so happy we went. It's so friendly in there and the service was great. Wendy got their... More

We both had the perch dinner & it was great. Trust me, we're from the shores of Lake Erie! The interior was charming, so glad it's the original! What a find!
