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!

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

Having been recommended and know many who would disagree, can only say that we were disappointed. Two of our party describing the meal as the worst during a two week stay and two saying "it was OK". Sorry, but OK was not enough for us. On the positive, staff were very attentive and friendly. For a drink without the meal... More

After enjoying much fish on AMI, we really enjoyed our casual meal of burgers and beer. We had typical burgers as well as a bean burger. All were really delicious, accompanied by very nice sides. The Server was wonderful and very attentive. The atmosphere is quite loud on football game Sundays as well as being very focused on the Philly... More

We loved living on the island, but missed great sports bars...until we found Slim's Place! We are from the Philadelphia area, and Slim's is a great Philly Sports Bar (although we have folks from all 32 teams on any given Sunday). The bartenders and staff make us feel like family...and the food is great.

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.

We had the burger special, lobster mac and cheese, and fish special. The food was excellent. Beer was cold. Live music made it fun!

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.
