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 12 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 Chris Powers 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!

Slims looks like a pub, Offers fine dining food!

Loved this place! It has a relaxed down to earth ambience but serves food that is wayyyy above the usual pub fare. Our table of guests (4) ordered shrimp scampi on fettuccini and we're still talking about it! We ordered a Pinot to go with the dinner. It was excellent.

Slim's is a great island bar, with a nice menu. You can actually have a decent meal there--not just bar food. Of course, it's especially good for Midwesterners who want to follow their favorite team. Just like real life, when Kentucky is playing the crowd will be annoying, and when the Hoosiers are playing the crowd will be good natured... More

We went there to eat and watch Alabama vs. Clemson. They do have a good kitchen not just the usual pub grub. The service was very good. If you go there be sure to taste their buttermilk pie see the fotos before -after). It can get a little louder - but if you can't support your team in a sports... More

A good bar with lots of TV's showing sport. Wine list is good for a casual joint. Pizzas , Wings, Philly Steak, all good. Music some nights and gets busy. Good for families as well. So not a sports bar really but a restaurant bar with sports on TV. Nice casual visit.

Always advertised as sports, sports, sports... which is why we go to this bar when on the island, I really want to give props to the excellent food at Slims! Being a picky eater, their menu has so many things I wish to try compared to only having one or two options at other restaurants. We have already ate there... More

Slim's Place is a friendly bar/restaurant with a great Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. The odd choice is in place of fries, Slim's offers tater tots.

Atmosphere was friendly local sports bar for dinner. Shrimp lettuce wraps were good and spicy. Pizza was good. Service was decent, but not overly friendly.

Visited last March. Had the Mac and cheese, it was tasty. Acoustic guitar player was great. We met some great people. Fast forward to last night- was back in town and stopped in. There were a couple of large parties in the front room eating and nothing much else happening. We tried to walk through to get to the bar... More

Maybe I'm cheap but I thought the food was really expensive and I didn't care for mine at all. I ordered fish tacos and the waitress said she "thought" they were out of fish. She suggested the chicken wrap in its place which was a bore. They may forgotten the avocado but there was no dressing or taste. My husband... More
