Good Band

This is definitely a busy place. They had a good band playing when we stopped in on a Tuesday night. I think they are likely busy every night of the week -- a must stop for the tourist crowd.

The restaurant promotes its connection to Hemingway but the author would be disappointed in the cliche the location has become. The service was slow and the food adequate but somewhat over priced. The live music was the worst - a cover singer who murdered even the most basic songs. Despite this, I would visit at least once.

The one and only day we had on and off showers. We stopped in and met a wonderful bartender named Julie. Best bloodymarys we have had in a long time. After having a few the rain let up. She told us to come back for the entertainment. We did. Great time. By the way she will not give out the... More

I think our favorite thing about Sloopy Joes is the atmosphere -- it is always boisterous, and the music ranks very high - some of the music in KW can be pretty poor. The service is always great - you don't have... More

We had a blast on a Saturday afternoon. We sat at the main bar the friendly lady bartender was very attentive. The music was fun and we had a lot of laughs and fun singing along. Will definitely return!

Went to Sloppy Joe's during our first trip to Key West. The bartenders were friendly and the band was great!

Gotta visit this iconic place. Great bar atmosphere, open air, music playing! We have gotten the nachos all three times we've been there! Get them with the sloppy joe mix on it! Wonderful! Good relaxing place! Also has a online camera so friends can see you. Check it out!

Our first trip to the Keys, couldn't miss this place! We just had a beer and a sloppy joe! It was packed! Lot waiting for a table, live entertainment, great atmosphere! We were standing close to a table of four and singing along with the guy performing, all of a sudden one of the younger guys stands up and asks... More
