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 executive chef and partner PJ Smargisso heading up the culinary team along with chef Nick Jorge 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 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!

We'd gotten a tip that Slim's was a good place to eat and it was a great tip! We all enjoyed our meals and cold beer. It got busier as the dinner hour progressed. Fun place!

The nachos are decent. The macaroni and cheese is good as well as the lobster mac. Wings decent as well. Drinks are horrible and waitresses are not very friendly.

Have visited here twice the last two times we've been on Anna Maria Island - it's a nice, laid back place, food is very good, with friendly and fast service.

Slim's was highly recommended to us by family in the area. The lobster mac & cheese is FABULOUS!! Sooo good! They do gift certificates too (the perfect thank-you gift for friends and family on Anna Maria).

We stopped in here for a drink on our last night on AMI. All of you Philadelphia fans will love this place as there's stuff everywhere for the Phillies, Flyers and Eagles. Luckily, our server had a Pirates shirt on! The food coming out of the window looked delicious and we wished we had taken a day to eat here.... More

When we moved to the Anna Maria area a short time ago, several friends mentioned that you could find the best cheesesteak in town at Slim's...they were right! Since both of us hail from the South Jersey area (and so does the owner of Slim's), we are very picky about what constitutes an authentic South Philly cheesesteak and they serve... More

This is our second time visiting Anna Maria & we were sure to make it to Slim's at least twice. We again had the lobster mac & cheese which is great, the wings were good and at our next visit, we tried the steak kabob which was the special for the night. The kabob was wonderful; very tender meat. Highly... More
