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!

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

I love the lobster mac. I normally take a serving home to share. Again, like Harry's, It is not really me kind of place to hang out. It is a pub scene. If that is what you want, the service and food are always good.
