Certificate of Excellence 2013
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 as a family of 5 for a late dinner. Ribs were really soft and the sauce was very sweet and sickly. Maybe suits a US palate but not nice for me. They don't do fried for some strange reason so instead ordered some weird fried potato balls which had far too much salt on them. Place seemed clean... More

Came by here once a year ago for t-shirts and to check the place out. That time it only had a few patrons, so we got our shirts and left. Finally made it here for a meal, and was it ever packed! I thought I had remembered seeing pool tables but they now seem to be replaced by dining tables...which... More

Visited for the first time and would definately go back. A very casual eatery but with a great atmosphere. We only stopped for drinks as we had made other dining arrangements but the food we saw looked good and seemed to be reasonably priced.

When Ezio is in the kitchen, he never disappoints. The atmosphere is that of a sports pub, and we stumbled in there one afternoon to watch a game. We weren't sure what to expect of the food (in fact we weren't expecting much), but were absolutely blown away. It is hands-down the best food on the island. There is the... More

After reading rave reviews about the lobster mac here (following a disappointing version of the dish at Lobstah's), we decided to try Slim's on our most recent Spring Break trip to the island. We ate a later dinner after watching the sunset, and the place was packed to the gills. I'd learned from customer reviews that the place was a... More

We have been here many times and never disappointed. ..On chef Enzio's recommendation ordered the Pasta Shells in marinara sauce....wonderful. Different menu options nightly....A neighborhood place with great chow.

My husband spent extra to order the grouper tacos & when they arrived there was one tiny medallion size piece of grouper on each of the two tacos. After some time passed the owner asked how our meal was & after listening to my husband he went to the kitchen & returned with two tacos that had the largest piece... More

We were looking for a place on the Island that served wings as well as pizza. We read the great reviews of this restaurant/bar and we weren't disappointed. The wings are huge and cooked to perfection. We also had a great pizza and some stuffed mushrooms. The atmosphere is fun and laid back. TVs all around to view games. We... More

We went to slims for dinner with friends while on AMI. A good night out! Everyone enjoyed their meal and they had music. Good portions and good prices! For those of you with little ones, they even have high chairs for the high top tables. Very cool!

This is an average rating of the 6 people in our party who ate lunch here. It should probably be 3 1/2 stars. This was our first time here, and I admit that I hate eating at places with TV's, but it was my husband's choice and he and the other 4 enjoyed themselves. Actually, he and my son in... More
