Ranked #10 of 23 restaurants in Anna Maria
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Price range: $3 - $19
Cuisines: American, Seafood, Pizza & Pasta, Sandwiches
Dining options: Late Night
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 play pool, watch a game on one of our 8 tv,s, or just enjoy some great food with friends. Slim's Place has recently been purchased (7-2-2013) by the Smargisso family who also 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. From a roast pork Italian to a Philly cheese steak, along with pizza, pasta and fresh seafood, chicken & ribs. We promise to amaze you with our food and fun!

Went here to watch the last USA World Cup game. Fun atmosphere, friendly staff. Tried the cheesy tots, lobster mac & cheese, and nachos. All were good...but the lobster mac & cheese is definitely worth coming here for!

Good beachy atmosphere. Not usually one for restaurant burgers but these were SO good! I had the bacon cheeseburger, my fiancé had the G3 (three patties) -- we BOTH loved them!! This is a must try if you're in the area. Usually it's really busy, we have been twice and both times we have had to order and pick up... More

Bar atmosphere, nice servers, great place to grab some food and an ice cold beer! I would not want to bring in toddlers. Lots of TV's to catch up on the World Cup. We had their cheesesteak and Cuban, both were great. The kids loved the tator tots with cheese.

We went to Slim's while on vacation in April. We had actually never been before. The outside never struck us as inviting. Trust me... give it a try! We had read a lot of positive reviews and they weren't wrong! Slim's was a fun, relaxing place with excellent food. The lobster mac and cheese was incredible - my mouth is... More

If you want to watch Sports at a bar this is a good place to go. Lots of screens all featuring different programmes. It's not loud however. Food is always tasty, good service, lots of choice of wines and beers. Staff always friendly. They never used to open at lunchtimes during the week but now on some days they do,... More

Dined at Slim's with my family including 2 kids, after a week of chicken fingers, mac and cheese hot dogs or hamburgers it was refreshing for the kids to get some pasta with marinara, they loved it. My Brother tried the Slims Challenge while the kids shouted man versus food, and got a free Tshirt! The waitress was so friendly... More

We ate there this past friday. Waitresses were less than friendly. Two of the guys in our group had philly cheese steaks and got very sick. Go somewhere else. Good reason this place wasnt crowded. Guess the locals all know.

Sorry to read about your experience at Slim's. We take great pride in our food ...especially the Cheese steak, it was voted best in the county. We are one of the favorite local places to eat and drink on AMI. As for getting sick I can assure you it was not the cheese steak as we sell 20-30 a day... More

We took a walked on the and when we crossed over one of the beach entry ways to catch the free trolley Slim's Place was just across the street. We stopped in for some Burgers and Beers and were not disappointed. We will seek this cute sports bar on future trips.
