Came into town on route 17 and this was the first restaurant that I would dare to eat at. Very friendly staff and quick service. We had shaved BBQ beef sandwiches on garlic toast and it was very good. They have almost like picnic bench seating, if that is problem you might avoid it. It was very clean and nicely... More

Was in for some Brunswick stew and shrimp. It is always very good. My wife loves the smoked turkey. The most unique and delightful desert is their cumquat pie. A chilled pie much like key lime but with a tart citrus taste. Only in season but don't pass this one up!

On our way home to Bradenton, today, found this place on US 17. Looked it up on Trip Advisor and saw it was #3 so we gave it a try. I had a rib eye steak, that was cooked perfectly for me, salad and fries. My wife had ribs, slaw, and fries. Both were really good, and with drinks, the... More

We were meeting a friend in Arcadia and suggested Slim's. It had been several years since I had been there. It was the weekend of the Antique fair so it was crowded at 1pm but we still managed to get in after a short wait. Our waitress was prompt, friendly and thorough. I had the Caesar Salad with Shrimp and... More

I have been eating here for years..the quality of food has been slipping for a long time . I am afraid it has slipped to the point of moving on for me..too bad.

If you like smoked meat this is a good place to go. Don't be fooled by the size or decor, was very clean and the staff was friendly. I had the combo plate which was ribs, chicken, choice of sliced beef, pork or turkey, I choose beef which was very tender. The cole slaw was fantastic. I brought home half... More

This restaurant is worth the drive from Pt. Charlotte, Sarasota or anywhere! We are so lucky to have it right here in Arcadia on S.R. 17. It is sparkling clean every single day, the waitresses are friendly and always accurate, and the food is perfectly prepared. The menu has something for everyone from fresh crisp gorgonzola salads with grilled chicken... More

My wife and I visited Slim's for lunch. We had about a 15 min. Wate. We were greeted quickil. The order was correct, which is becoming rare today. The ribs were very good, however I felt that for the price there should have been more on the plate. Good food, good service, a little pricey for what you get, but... More

We made a special trip to Arcadia on our way to Matlacha just to visit Slim's. We weren't disappointed. I had a quarter BBQ chicken with the wonderful potato salad. It was fall off the bone delicious. The prices were good and the staff was quick and efficient. Not a fancy place! They do serve beer in the bottle. I'm... More
