Seated outside at the river's edge (Mississippi R.), we watched a man casting from the dock. Pulling in several panfish, he threw them back. We also watched as kids were feeding the ducks. The current is swift, and the ducks struggle to stay in place!...More

We love going to Slippery's on our boat, pulling up to their dock and having a bit to eat. One of the best burgers we have ever had. Much fun watching the boats and barges go past on the Mississippi

We enjoyed a nice lunch while sitting on the waters edge. Slippery's offers a nice assortment of sandwiches for a bar type establishment and the 4 of us tried something different. We all went away happy. We had excellent service and the prices were reasonable.
