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 o 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 by the Smargisso family who used to own The Banana Cabana Caribbean Restaurant in Bradenton Beach. We are very excited to have executive chef and partner PJ Smargisso heading up the culinary team at Slim's Place. PJ is one of the best young chefs on AMI. He 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 on Amoroso rolls & fresh baked Philly pretzels, along with pizza, pasta, and fresh seafood.

This is a kid friendly bar as well, so don't hesitate to bring the kiddies...well...maybe for lunch...We liked it so well that we came here twice on this trip. The service is excellent, both at lunch and dinner, the beer is cold, and the food is very good for the price. We had two pizzas here,one pepperoni and one margherita, the margherita being the best. My hubbie ordered the lobster mac and cheese, and he said it was to die for, and it was...I would come here in a minute as it is not touristy, and very local and laid back. Go.....

I totally thought this place was a pool hall or just a bar when we walked by but I'm so glad we tried it! The food was so awesome and a good value. For two of us with two beers, appetizers and two meals the bill was around $35! The crab cakes were some of the best we have ever had. Also enjoyed we're the lobster macaroni and cheese, Cuban sandwich (pasta salad on the side was also really good) and fish tacos. Service was a little slow but not too bad. Servers were friendly and helpful. We would definitely come back!!

We went for lunch on a Saturday. Food was fabulous. The hamburger with mushrooms was VERY good and our children loved the cheese pizza. Not at all typical bar food. We were a little skeptical when we first drove up, BUT we will be back.

Good food, but Not the BEST hamburger I have ever had. Service was good, the place was really busy at lunch so it took a few minutes to get our food, but not a long wait. I would eat there again.
