Have been here numerous times, they are usually open till 9, sometimes 10, which is a rarity in Anna Maria, almost everything else is closed by then. Decent food, some items are real good, can't imagine what people like about the Lobster Mac & Cheese, it's watery, has almost zero lobster and very little cheese. Sliders are good. Parking limited,... More

Hubby and I flew in today to AmI , tired, and hungry asked a local where we could get a quick bite. She recommend Slims Place. It was soooo good. We had buffalo wings ( which were huge ) cooked to perfection and a portobello sandwich. Enjoyed it so much we are already planning to go back!

Here on vacation and looked for a place to have a simple meal for dinner. Food was OK, nothing great. Loud drinkers at bar, but everyone was nice enough. Vacation area prices, so no bargains. Place was just OK, nothing to rave about.

The bartender recognized us the next day on the beach : ) Very friendly; and the LOBSTER MAC AND CHEESE is the... More

Always busy,large,decent bar,outside and inside tables. Went for the Super Bowl and since we are from Massachusetts we wanted a patriots win. Found a table an hour prior to the game and no hassle from the servers at all when everyone wanted to keep their seats for hours throughout the game. Beer and food good. Finally left after four beers... More

The first night we dined with friends, party of 6, 2 families. They automatically added 20% tip for groups, which surprised us as the restaurant was not busy, it's small, and a bar. We questionned it and the waitress was 'that's our policy'. The lobster mac & cheese is really good, but order the appetizer portion, you get almost the... More

This place is a really fun restaurant with live music and good spirits. It's like a sports bar and everyone there seems to be having a good time. The food was pretty good, we got the nachos, lobster Mac, and pizza.

Visited on Monday April 3rd during happy hour. Waitress ruined the experience. There were 4 tables of customers and at some point she was noticeable rude to each and every table. All the customers were looking at each other and shaking their heads. No matter what the request: a menu, another drink, refill etc she acted as if it was... More

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!
