Very friendly bar with a choice of 5 different sports to watch on the many TVs! Food looked great and seemed like a family friendly place. Lots of parking too.

We decided to check out Slim's while staying on the island. It's a typical local sports bar with variety of TVs showing the latest game. Food is amazing and more on the pricier side. The fish tacos are really good and the side of mac...More

While it is understandable that a sports bar would be noisy from enthusiastic fans, it was intolerable from a group who apparently had been drinking and totally inconsiderate of any other patrons. When the manager was approached about the situation, he seemed unable to respond,...More

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.
