About Slicker’s Eatery

Slicker’s Eatery is excited to offer something innovative and exciting to the Cortez area. Our driving force is intentionality. To be intentional with our ingredients, our choices, our relationships, and our impact. Everything from investing in our team, to partnering with local charities, to steering away from frozen or fried foods and opting for fresh and locally sourced ingredients as much as possible. We care deeply about people, and that love is at the core of everything we do. In our inspired menu choices, specialty crafted cocktails, and the way we treat each other. We hope that every person leaves with a full belly and a full heart.

We are committed to being an outlier in the industry and will continue to seek the ways we can make our place, our communities, and ultimately the world a brighter and kinder place.

For goodness’ sake.

About Bob

Bob Slicker is a Michigan native who hiked the Appalachian Trail and made his way to Florida to call the beaches of Anna Maria Island home over 30 years ago. Along the way, he’s been blessed enough to lead restaurants in New Orleans, Boston, Michigan, and for many years in our Bradenton area. With decades of service industry experience under his belt, Bob has always had a fervent passion for people and his community. His greatest dream for Slicker’s Eatery is to provide a friendly local establishment that not only enhances the guest experience but enhances the life of his team.

Chef Kurt Clennan

Chef Kurt Clennan has taken his education, life experience, and travels to help curate our eclectic menu. A Michigan native, Kurt moved to Pittsburgh to study at Le Cordon Bleu Institute of Culinary Arts. After finishing his studies, he began consistently working to help open new restaurants as a corporate trainer. His work as an executive chef, consultant, and trainer has taken him all across the country and in many different types of cuisine.

Kurt and his family live in California and love camping and exploring the great outdoors. He finds his inspiration everywhere but especially loves being able to utilize fresh and local produce. The Clennan family’s favorite place to vacation is right here in Cortez!

Chef Kurt has truly put his heart and soul into creating a unique and inspired menu for us at Slicker’s Eatery and we can’t wait for you to taste the excellence he’s dreamt up.
