We eat there often. Reasonable prices, great portions (a FULL pour of wine), awesome wait staff and a much better menu than you would normally find in a sports bar. All the TV's are an extra, but the food and staff are the reason to attend.

we've visited Slim's the past 2 trips to the Island but didn't get to eat the first time. They have a great no shower happy hour & the food is very nice. We all had the $6 chilly-cheese steak offer which is a good deal if you want just the sandwich but if you want sides you are probably better... More

We thought from everything we'd read and heard that this would be the best and most fun bar in AMI village. It is run by and for Philly sports fans, so if you love Philly sports and beer, this is your place. If you are looking for a bar with late night music and good drinks, this isn't it. When... More

Thanks for coming into Slim's, but we are not a late night bar. We are a family sports bar restaurant that closes at 10pm weekdays and midnight on weekends. We do have music until 10pm on fri and sat nights. As far as your Hurricane, it tastes nothing like tang. It is our version and is made with a 40... More

We were here on a busy Tuesday evening after Christmas. When we got there there were seats available at the bar and a couple of available tables but the place quickly filled up. We sat at the bar and the service was good although the two young women who were responsible for serving both the bar and the rest of... More

This place has gone downhill since our last visit in 2012...new cooks I'm sure. The place was packed, the floors were filthy, the tables not cleared, and the service was poor. We ordered the pizza since the last time it was so good. We like thin crust, but this time it was thick, and the sausage tasted like it was... More

Sorry for disappointing visit, we work very hard to make Slim's a good experience for everyone. I appreciate the feedback but I don't appreciate the mean way you went about it. If you want to review a restaurant and say you didnt like it and why say just that. The extra commentary is uncalled for and insulting to my staff... More

Great place to get your NFL Sunday on with solid beer choices and decent food. Everything is pricey out here on the island and Slim's is no exception. I come here a couple times a week during my annual Florida trip and the folks here are great!

Ice cold beers and delicious burgers. Also the BEST onion rings I have ever had. Sit inside or outside with your feet in the sand under palm trees.

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!
