Fun with entertainment at lunch

Great food, friendly service, just a fun place to go. Wife had the sloppy jo and I the Philly, both very tasty and filling. Would go again.

This review is based on having only one drink at Sloppy's, their world famous, one and only "Sloppy Rita". In a word: gross. If you enjoy a good margarita, go elsewhere (although, I'm feeling like the entire island is difficient on this one; I tried four different margaritas over the weekend and not one was good).

We have stopped at Key West 3 times on cruise adventures and have refreshed at Sloppy Joes each of those times. I haven't been during the evening but it's kid friendly in the afternoon. This time we ate Chilli Nachos and drank Mojitos. The food is good but not great and the prices are average, but the atmosphere is fun.... More

After seeing picture after picture in all the promo literature about this place and hearing the story about it from the Old Town Trolley driver I knew it was a must go to on my Key West list of places to see. We strolled in at about 11:30 on a Saturday, seated ourselves and a server quickly appeared. We ordered... More

Both my husband and I really enjoyed the sloppy joe sandwiches and fries. I couldn't eat all of mine, but my husband was willing too. We also walked around and saw pictures of Key West and Earnest Hemmingway. They claim that that was his favorite bar.

is what i seem to remember seeing painted on the exterior of this edifice back in 1970. Doesn't read that way now, but whatever. So now decades later, I can come inside and eat. I don't know what it was then, or in hemingways time, but now it is a mass feeding/souvenir selling operation. And that's that. The burger is... More

Have been going to Key West for 7 yrs for New Years and have watched the conch drop every yr outside always a good time. I'm in the Jets for 4 mo's every yr. But will never ever go in this place again and have had the same problem for years. I would vote for Obama before going in there... More

This bar had great drinks and a fun band. Just a great all around nighttime atmosphere. We went a couple of nights!

Looking for a good drink and a place to relax for a bit, we headed into Sloppy Joe's. We sat at the bar and were greeted by a very energenic bar tender who got us drinks right away! There was live music to enjoy while we took a break from the Florida Sun. I would definitely go back if ever... More

Yes it's an institution but I think they've let their reputation as a seller of stellar cocktails slide - the frozen were weak. The crowd seem to be enjoying the music though & the gift shop was bunged! I preferred flying Monkeys at fogartys
