My son was anxious to try the award winning lobster Mac and cheese. It was a definite hit with our group. Philly cheesesteak was great too.

Enjoyed two apps (lobster Mac and cheese and sliders) and a crab arugula pizza. Food was good, waitress was very nice. Atmosphere is good, a little loud. Only beer and wine.

Didn't except to go into the establishment and have prices $13 for apps and $20+ entrees! We weren't impressed with the prices or the food! PLUS the kids meals are all $9.50!! Yes $9.50!!

Maybe your expectations were unrealistic. You can't do good food cheap. And as far the kids meals they include unlimited drinks.

This was such an unexpected delight! Not because we are from Philly and loved the memorabilia wall to wall, but the food was great! The waitresses were attentive and friendly and the food was served quick. We will definitely be going back!!!

The waitress admitted that they don't use reall lobster but stated that most tourist won't figure that out. We'll, being from New England, we figured it out. Very disappointed. For real Lobster Mac and Cheese go to Island Time.More

Sorry you were disappointed but being from the best lobster place on the world..New England why would you come to Florida and order lobster anything. We have so many local fresh fish choices that would have been a much better experience. We do use lobster...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!
