Our first evening on the Island we were looking for someplace to grab something to eat, but nothing fancy. Did we find the place. When we walked into Slim's we felt right at home, the decor of the bar/restaurant was that of our beloved Phillies. The bartenders were friendly the food was delicious and the beer was cold.

Nice place with personable locals. Be sure to get the coconut key lime cake as it's to DIE for! I've heard to music and food is good so give it a try.

Stopped in for a couple beers and lunch at this bar and were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and hit the spot. We had the mushroom philly steak sandwich with provolone, meatball sliders and the spicy shrimp po boy sandwich. All were tasty and came in big portions to satisfy a big appetite after boating most of the day.... More

We had tater tots and the special cheese sauce which was great! They have upgraded the wine selection and a decent Sauvignon Blanc, excellent service!

My son was anxious to try the award winning lobster Mac and cheese. It was a definite hit with our group. Philly cheesesteak was great too.

If you are looking for cheap bar food this isn't your place. If you are looking for a bar setting that has legit, quality food then this is your place. Nice selection of local beers as well. I've never been the Philly, but the cheesesteak seemed authentic and the real deal. The pork nachos were delicious and you should also... More

Great live music on Saturday night. My daughter had a cheese pizza, which she thought was delicious. I had a burger with provolone and it was thick, juicy and amazing. I chose pasta salad for the side and it was light and tasty. Not a large building and probably not set up for little kids, but was perfect for myself... More

Enjoyed two apps (lobster Mac and cheese and sliders) and a crab arugula pizza. Food was good, waitress was very nice. Atmosphere is good, a little loud. Only beer and wine.

Thank Jackie P

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!
