We showed up late to watch our hometown NFL game. The place was packed with NFL fans from all over the country. The only TV not tuned to a specific game was outside on the patio. We asked if we could watch our game on that screen and the answer was immediately "YES!" Great place, friendly service good food and... More

We were there for lunch on a football Sunday--lots of excitement and cheering! We enjoyed a Philly cheesesteak and Cuban sandwich. Service is friendly and the two wait staff work the whole restaurant without any lapses. Beach garb accepted. Beachy but not cheap--

Really good Philly, great vibe for sports, and really good list of craft beer. Only downfall is it's only beer and wine. Still great place to visit.

Slims is a great stop for some delicious food, fun atmosphere, and owners and staff that make you feel like a local. A must stop on Anna Maria Island!

Staying at a local hotel / resort then Hurricane Hermine hit and the whole area was flooded and most shops and bars shut except SLIMS PLACE . We braved the floods with flip flops on and walked to Slims and was instantly blown away with the friendliness and the buzz of the place. We sat at the bar and ordered... More

We stopped at this sports bar spur of the moment. It was a rainy afternoon during hurricane Hermine and any businesses were closed. I am so glad we found this place. My husband had the El Fuego burger (beef and chorizo) and I had the fish tacos. Both were really good. The draft beer was nice and cold. Good service... More

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!
