About Slicker’s Eatery

Slicker’s Eatery offers an innovative and casual dining experience. They provide a laid-back, beach vibe for both locals and tourists to enjoy. Slicker’s staff prides themselves on being creative with their menu.

Bob Slicker has called the Cortez Area of Bradenton his home for over 30 years. He is experienced with the locals and tourists well and wanted to give them a dining experience they can enjoy. Bob has had the dream to “provide a friendly local establishment” for both guests and staff.

Chef Kurt Clennan has taken his passion for cooking and combined it with his education. Together he has crafted the perfect menu, different from any other establishment on Anna Maria Island (AMI). Chef Clennan has traveled all around the country to help other restaurants build special and unique menus. Kurt uses his love of local and natural produce to curate the most interesting meals.

Together, Bob and Kurt have created a restaurant for everyone. Their main goal: for every person to leave with a full belly and a full heart. They want to put kindness and goodness first. Slicker’s primary mission is to help make the world a better place, and they decided to start with the dinner table. They hope to make their communities a brighter and kinder place.
