We always like to eat at Slim's while visiting Anna Maria. The lobster mac & cheese is fantastic but eat it while it's hot or it gets a little gummy. Burgers are great. Just one word of advice to wait staff: reduce the amount of cologne you put on; it's making your customers sneeze.

We stopped here for a quick lunch. Glad we did. Three of us had the Cuban sandwiches, and one had the meatball sandwich. All of us were very happy with our meals. Excellent!

Get the smoked gouda lobster mac and cheese w/truffle oil.... the big baked wings and the ahi tuna are all amazing. Their pizzas, tater tots & sandwiches are all great.

It was burger night for us! Slims was the perfect fit. They have a great special from 3-5. There regular burger which is 8oz for $5. It was outstanding. The homemade potato salad and pasta salad were also very good. The sides are extra but well worth the cost. The service was very friendly, fast and efficient. Atmosphere is very... More

Had a great time! Very welcoming staff but also the crowd was very friendly with a mix of locals and visitors. Food was okay.. needed to be cooked a little longer as my husband had to send his back, but overall a nice place! You should go!

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!
