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 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.

We stopped in for a late lunch after a morning on the beach. I didn't have the wings, but they were massive. The lobster Mac n cheese appetizer was good and large enough for a meal. The Philly cheesesteak was good too. :)

My family and a friends family have been vacationing together on AMI for years and Slim's has become a tradition for our first night on the island . On 2 different occasions over this last week we went with 2 different groups and they unfortunately refused to allow us to push together 2 tables that were right next to each other and were told that we could take the 6 seats at the bar or sit at 2 different tables if we wanted to sit together. (The only 6 top they have was full.) We were given multiple reasons for the new policy, including that it was due to patrons being in the way of staff, fire codes and finally were told that it was primarily due to poor trip advisor reviews because all of the tables would be taken up.

Huh? Isn't sitting at 2 tables next to each other still using the same 2 tables if they had been pushed together? The first night we left because we all wanted to be able to converse with one another. The second night we caved because we wanted their tater toys. (Those tots are hard to resist!!)

This is a terrible new policy and seems detrimental to business. I can understand not holding tables, but if you walk in and there are tables available, why would they not want to accommodate their customers? Not to mention that sitting together likely keeps patrons there spending money longer. Very disappointing considering we've always enjoyed our visits to Slim's.

Sorry about the tables, but it has become an issue with us being able to to control the flow of the room and our ability to move around and service tables. Also when you push tables together you lose seats on the2 sides that are together. We will be making some changes in the fall and hope to solve this issue. Try us again next trip please

Great low key and low-cost place for lunch or dinner. You order at the counter and they bring your food out. Daft beer, burgers, and fries are the bulk of the menu. We had 5 folks and about $55 or so with one pitcher of beer.

We weren't impressed with the menu. The food was bland and overpriced. I couldn't believe they didn't have fries. It just wasn't our cup of tea.
