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!

We stooped in for dinner one evening while on vacation. The lobster Mac and cheese was really good. I ordered a sangria also which was not good. Nice atmosphere but only one waitress while we were there and she was very busy.

A really nice sports bar with good food, service and atmosphere. The night we were there a group of local guys were in watching a football game. This gave a nice "local place" kind of atmosphere as opposed to a touristy place. Quite reasonable prices too.

This place is a sports nut best friend. They have over 12 TV's and carry all of the sports packages from NHL to NASCAR. The staff is fun and friendly and have always been great. Food is great and there is always a fun selection of specials. Only issue is the place is a PHILLY BAR!!!!!

We had low expectations when we arrived and left very satisfied. The food was very good with obvious attention by the kitchen. The service was attentive and fun.

Wife does not like seafood so we stopped here. Would recommend the food to go as the place is small & crowded. Burgers are real good. Stopped there twice in 5 days.

Night after the night Slim's presents specials that represent the best available food on the island. They have recently added another chef in the kitchen, Nick, who adds to the already talented and capable Ezio and PJ. In the past week, I've had a fantastic fresh fish special, steak medallions, and homemade linguini with a pesto like sauce and a... More

Thanks we have tried very hard to make Slims a family friendly place and it seems to have headed that way. More
