Don't expect any culinary delights from this bar that serves up fast food, alcohol and music/comedy. Stopped in for lunch and I, by default, had to try the namesake Sloppy Joe's. $10 for a hamburger bun filled with a single scoop of Sloppy Joe slop. I think the french fries were extra. While it was tasty, you'd think that with... More

Most people probably go here for drinks and a party. I went for lunch and the history. The waiter was really friendly and suggested other places in Key West for shopping besides the t shirt row that lines the main street. Food was good, but my order wasn't 100% complete. It wasn't a big deal...I mean...you're in Key West so... More

We were with someone who's visiting first time so we ate lunch here. It was 11am and filled with drunk people already and a live band. My taco salad was good but others didn't care for their fish sandwiches which didn't come with any sides. Good place to have a drink but skip the food. Oh, and waitress didn't say... More

We were a party of 7, without asking, 7glasses of water was served in large disposable plastic cups. Then we ordered our drinks making the grand total to 14 plastic cups on the table. This kind of environmental waste makes me sick. The food was mediocre.

We enjoyed our first visit to Sloppy Joe's very much. I stuck to ordering the famous sloppy joe and sloppy-rita and I was not disappointed. Good music always seems to be playing as well. Service was good and prices reasonable.

Everyone who has been to Key West says to go to Sloppy Joe's! Hemingway used to frequent this bar-- go for the history (the bloody Mary's are good too)!

I go to Sloppy Jose's every time I visit a Key West. This time I was disappointed in the food. The onion rings were off and the Sloppy Joe was different then the last time I went. The singer was great.

This is a "must do" if you've never been to Key West. As long as you don't have sensitive ears (based on some of the entertainment which is always funny but can hilariously go off track quickly), Sloppy Joe's is a great take (we've seen some great live music here too). The atmosphere & mood are light, the food is... More

Good sandwiches and beer and a great piano man. Barry Cuda can play it. We even danced between tables before we left.

Casual atmosphere and GREAT food. The sloppy joe fries were outstanding, with lots to take home and enjoy another time. The Sloppy Joe sandwich is iconic and delicious also. The story behind the restaurant and how it moved from it's original location a block away is hysterical, and Ernest Hemingway had a lot to do with that! Don't miss this... More
