We came here to watch the Eagles on Monday night football and really enjoyed the place. Had a cheesesteak and sausage and pepper sandwich and both were delicious on a fresh roll. Side of mac and cheese was wonderful. Fun atmosphere with other Eagles fans...More

First visit this year. They carry the Big 10 Network, have a good beer and drinks selection, and the food is pretty good. Burgers, wings, cole slaw, and Caesar salad were all good.

That is not put policy. We save seats for local eagles fans until the game starts in the bar area. It's always open seating in the restaurant area. Sorry that that happened to you I will talk to my waitress about that issue

There are three competitive burger joints on AMI. This is my favorite by far. The other two have wonderful qualities(frosty beer, funky decor), but when it comes to burgers, Slim’s is the place to go! They have old fashioned tater tots that bring back childhood...More

So, my first trip to AMI and this pub looking restaurant looked busy so we stopped to eat.My partner had pulled pork sandwich and I had eggplant--paper thin with spaghetti. The eggplant resembled none I have ever had. It was dry and had no flavor....More

We had a party of 8 and Slim’s was perfect! They had several TV’s for watching college football and the beer and wine selection was great! We had the lobster Mac and cheese, shrimp scamp, ahi tuna and the cheesesteak. All were absolutely delicious!

After arriving into town late, we had a hard time finding a restaurant still serving food. We happened upon Slim’s and were not disappointed!! Great service, great food!

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.
