This place has gone downhill since our last visit in 2012...new cooks I'm sure. The place was packed, the floors were filthy, the tables not cleared, and the service was poor. We ordered the pizza since the last time it was so good. We like thin crust, but this time it was thick, and the sausage tasted like it was... More

Sorry for disappointing visit, we work very hard to make Slim's a good experience for everyone. I appreciate the feedback but I don't appreciate the mean way you went about it. If you want to review a restaurant and say you didnt like it and why say just that. The extra commentary is uncalled for and insulting to my staff... More

Great place to get your NFL Sunday on with solid beer choices and decent food. Everything is pricey out here on the island and Slim's is no exception. I come here a couple times a week during my annual Florida trip and the folks here are great!

Ice cold beers and delicious burgers. Also the BEST onion rings I have ever had. Sit inside or outside with your feet in the sand under palm trees.

This is a restaurant sports bar. It's cute and clean. Prices are in keeping with most of the area. The wait staff were really nice and very efficient which is always appreciated. The tots with cheese were a great starter with ice cold beer. The philly steak was a standout, that should be tried at least once. The shrimp po... More

Dropped in here twice for a lunch bite. Food is much better than you would think from the look of the place. Great prices. Good location. Good service. It is more of a bar but the food is always quite good. Give it a shot.

Great local bar with lots of TV's for watching all those games. Super pizzas and great lobster mac and cheese. Lots of typical bar/grill food. Fast, friendly service.

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 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 & panzarotti, pasta and fresh seafood, chicken, chops & steaks . We promise to amaze your family with our food and fun!
