Are here twice while staying on the island. Had a burger the first time around, and it was exceptional. Juicy, generous patty and soft, delicious bun. Burger heaven. Nachos pretty good, too. My daughter had the Mac and cheese and it was exceptionally good. The best part was the friendly staff and servers. They made us feel welcome, which is... More

Enjoyed the fish tacos and cold beer. Service is ok. Nice place for basic food and a beer while catching a game on the tv or enjoying local music. Don't like that the bathroom opens directly to the bar area.

Fun place with decent bar food in AMI. Philly memorabilia and lots of TVs. Had good time watching NCAAs with lots of homers. Food is above average bar food and service was quick.

Lots of tvs to watch the game and good bar food. Our group loved the Lobster Mac and Cheese. Very casual, good for families or large groups. Staff was friendly and fast.

We love the cheese steaks here. They're better than the ones in Philadelphia, which we've had all our lives. Coming here is a annual ritual for us. Of course we had a cheese steak - always a winner. Got the tater tots with it - they were amazing - never knew they could be soooo good! Lobster Mac & Cheese... More

Great food! Each person had different item and each and every one was fresh, tasty, hot and done right! The bartender was very talkative, servers work quickly and had a lot of local advise. Can't wait to go back. Recommended by the Trolly driver!

We had a bit of time to kill before our airport transfer came to pick us up and decided to try Slim's. We enjoyed nachos and beer. We wished we had visited here earlier before the end of our trip.

Very nice 'locals' bar/restaurant on AMI. The owner is a Philadelphia native and there's a lot of 'Philly' sports stuff on the walls. Since he's from Philly I got the Philly Steak sandwich and it was excellent. The other food is really good also. Friendly staff, casual atmosphere. A winner

Stopped in with family for dinner. The grandson wanted a place that had pizza, as he was tired of all the seafood restaurants. We had a wonderful time. Uncle Chuck loved the wine selection, my husband loved the beer selection, and we all loved our food. They had entertainment that night and he was entertaining with audience participation. Great night.... More

A more extensive menu than setting would first suggest. Lobster Mac and Cheese to Philadelphia Cheese Steak. Music on weekends and a fun atmosphere.

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!
