Success! Thanks for posting your review of Mayslack's Bar & Grill. You’ve done the world some good today.

Good drinks, terrifyingly bad food.

Good place for a drink, but the food is terrible. Roast Beef is basically inedible, tough and chewy. If it doesn't come out of a Sysco bag, I don't know what they are doing to it. Add to that a menu filled with four pages of obviously straight out of the Sysco catalog prefab generic fried crap, and you get the idea. Actually WORSE then Applebee's. Non of this would be all that bad, if they didn't charge so much f... view more

Rip off

Bone found in sandwich, management only took half off,pizza was not all that good, watered down drinks, second band was cut short, best band there that night,April 3rd 2010. Our group of 30 people that went to see band number 2 will not go back again, we spent over $1000.00 and was not treated to well. They do not apparently need our money and the bathrooms were very very disgusting. Sorry this was not a very good e... view more

Never had a bad time

I've been to Mayslack's probably 10 times in the last year and every experience was as you would want it to be. Friendly service, good food, cold beer and good live music with a cool dive bar atmosphere. I am guessing they got rid of the bad help talked about in the reviews below because I have not experienced that at all. I have never tried the roast beef, but I absolutely love the Big Bleu burger with tater to... view more

We want don't want to Beat Mayslack's Meat

Hello Mayslacks!\r \r Granted, we haven't met the new owners, but we've been by. It's a fun bar. Does the band play in the blue room or the green room? \r \r We haven't been around as long as Mayslack's, but, we'd love to play there. We'll even buy the shirt!\r \r Mayslacks please hire us!

Nobody Beats Mayslack's Meat!

While ""Mayslack's Meat"" remains a hot number on the menu, the recent make-over of the place leaves something to be desired. The keg-cracked tile floors are still there, the fabulous tin ceiling with the dramatic crown moulding is still there, but someone -- perhaps someone's grandmother -- has painted the place with what appears to be a sponge. Remember sponge painting? Yikes. Still gets bands, still attracts a... view more

Decent later night experience

I don't know about the other reviewers experiences, but for a first timer, (apparently it used to be different) I enjoyed myself. The server was cute and spunky, ordered quickly, food came out hot and the wings were perfect. What made this an average review was the amount of time our sandwiches took. The wing makers had to take time out of their busy wing making to multi task and it must have been too much to handle.... view more

New ownership is horrible!

I used to go to Mayslack's frequently. When I say frequently I mean once a week! Now, even though I live down the street I go rarely. Tonight was an exceptionally bad experience. We paid way to much money for cheap grocery bought, cooked in the microwave, 'Tyson' stirfry and rice and walleye coated in cornmeal flour that tasted as if it had been dipped in cornmeal and put directly on the plate. \r \r It is unfo... view more

I think im going to be sick

OMG!!!! the beef sandwich was about the same quaity as sloppy joe at a truck stop. NASTY. This new owner has NO idea at all and if he has a wife she should be scared cause I think he is hiring staff off of cup size only. No talent waitstaff and no talent in the kitchen either. Im guessing if this guy purchased an McDonalds in Ethiopia he would lose it. Here is a case of I know everything and do nothing business owner... view more

Big ol' pile o' beef!

I read a couple of reviews here that were pretty harsh and thought I should add my two cents.\r To start - I'm certainly no local and didn't get a chance to try the place when Stan was still around so I don't have anything to compare the current place with. I'm on my first trip to the area - for a friend's funeral - and someone told me to give Mayslacks a try. They warned in advance that the place ""wasn't what it u... view more
