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.

Our 'local' when we stay on AMI and not bad as locals go! Food is tasty standard sports bar fare. Really enjoy the Macaroni with Lobster. Staff are friendly & efficient. Only complaint is it can sometimes get a bit loud but to be expected in a sports bar - so we tend to go when it's quieter.

We had a large party of people after a wedding at the Sandbar. There was a live band playing. They had an excellent beer selection and great bar food (the tater tots with cheese were irresistible). The staff was very attentive and interactive. They even stayed open a little later for us.

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.

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 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!
