Slims is a great stop for some delicious food, fun atmosphere, and owners and staff that make you feel like a local. A must stop on Anna Maria Island!

Staying at a local hotel / resort then Hurricane Hermine hit and the whole area was flooded and most shops and bars shut except SLIMS PLACE . We braved the floods with flip flops on and walked to Slims and was instantly blown away with the friendliness and the buzz of the place. We sat at the bar and ordered... More

We stopped at this sports bar spur of the moment. It was a rainy afternoon during hurricane Hermine and any businesses were closed. I am so glad we found this place. My husband had the El Fuego burger (beef and chorizo) and I had the fish tacos. Both were really good. The draft beer was nice and cold. Good service... More

Our first evening on the Island we were looking for someplace to grab something to eat, but nothing fancy. Did we find the place. When we walked into Slim's we felt right at home, the decor of the bar/restaurant was that of our beloved Phillies. The bartenders were friendly the food was delicious and the beer was cold.

Nice place with personable locals. Be sure to get the coconut key lime cake as it's to DIE for! I've heard to music and food is good so give it a try.

Stopped in for a couple beers and lunch at this bar and were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and hit the spot. We had the mushroom philly steak sandwich with provolone, meatball sliders and the spicy shrimp po boy sandwich. All were tasty and came in big portions to satisfy a big appetite after boating most of the day.... More

We had tater tots and the special cheese sauce which was great! They have upgraded the wine selection and a decent Sauvignon Blanc, excellent service!

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 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 along with Chris Powers at Slim's Place. They are 2 of the best young chefs on AMI. They both 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, along with pizza, pasta and fresh seafood, chicken & ribs. We promise to amaze you with our food and fun!
