Description: Slim's Place is a great spot where local islanders and all island visitors can hang out and enjoy some of the best food and drinks AMI has to offer. We have live music on weekends and stay open for the late night crowd looking To eat, drink or watch a game on one of our 11 TVs, or just enjoy some great times with friends. Slim's Place is operated (7-2-2013) by the Smargisso family who used to own The Banana Cabana Caribbean Restaurant in Bradenton Beach on AMI. We are very excited to have chefs and partners PJ Smargisso & Ezio Piccione heading up the culinary team at Slim's Place. They are 2 of the best young chefs on AMI. They both will always think outside the box and create some awesome food that will leave you wanting to come back for more. We are all from the Philadelphia area and will be doing some of the best Philly style bar foods we all know and love. Philly cheese steaks, along with pizza, pasta and fresh seafood, chicken & ribs. We promise to amaze you with our food and fun!

When I walked up and saw PJ out front thanking some guests on the way out, I was so happy to see him I almost forgot to pay my taxi. He was formerly with Banana Cabana. He doesn't like to get bored with food and usually offers a FOODIE appropriate specials list. He also knows good barfood! I enjoyed a... More

This is a family owned restaurant that serves a limited but very fine menu. The portions are large and well presented. It is a very popular place on our island. I would highly recommend it to locals and visitors.

Although it was a sports bars, we fell it was family acceptable. Fish tacos were good, big surprise to have in a place like this. Service could be more friendly.

We ate dinner at Slim's twice during a three-week stay on Anna Maria Island. inside, the place is well dressed and has good atmosphere. On both occasions, the standard of the food and drink was good. The service, however, was variable. The first time that we visited was a very rainy evening and service was chaotic; we were told that... More

Ate here early Friday evening, the place was packed & great atmosphere. I understand what one of the previous reviewers said, about it perhaps looking a bit intimidating from the outside, with its darkened windows - but rest assured, it's a place for all ages. We are in our 50's & 60's and there were plenty of diners our age... More

Just finished a week on Anna Maria Island (AMI), we ate out three meals a day all week. Slim's was very close, it was the first place we ate on vacation and the last, plus one or two more in between. Their pizza was terrific and lobsters mac n' cheese just as good. Everything we tried was very good. Service... More

Stopped at Slim's after trying to go to another restaurant that was closed (on a Tuesday?) and SO happy we did. Not much to see on the outside, we did not have very high hopes but were very hungry. The owner is apparently from PA and the whole place is decorated with PA team stuff. Being Packer fans, we would... More

I liked the "locals" feel of this place, after stopping in after the dinner hour. The chef saw me eyeing the Flan on the specials bar while having a glass of wine at the bar, and he immediately went back into the kitchen (after hours) and brought me out an exquisite dessert, complete with strawberries and mint! Very impressive! AND,... More
