Sit at the bar. Have a mango mojito on the rocks! And be sure and ask for Les is more! He is a true joy and made the whole trip into the bar for us. Great crab cakes and conch fritters!

We stopped in on a sweltering busy saturday afternoon to grab a bite and were a party of 6. Didnt have a problem finding a table, as its seat yourself. Our waitress seemed busy but made her way over to us taking our drink orders first, took a bit for her to return with the drinks, she then took our... More

We tried a few times to get a table as one of my friends badly wanted to eat at sloppy joe's. We finally walked in and got a seat for lunch the thursday we left. Over rated!!! My two friends each got the original sloppy joes with fries, one with cheese and bacon-they might have been the best thing, they... More

We had to go to Sloppy Joe's during our week-long vacation to Key West, and I'm glad we did, but I can't help feeling a little disappointed. The food and drinks were good, if not memorable, and the atmosphere was fun, but it's so loud that you have to shout to be heard by your companions at your own table.... More

Our waitress went very sour when we placed 1/2 our order at a time (Sloppy Joe was excellent, as was the salad). Saving grace, for those of us who found the waitress such a turn-off that we decided not to eat, was the atmosphere + music.

Maybe it was all the spring breakers but everyone was just plain 'sloppy' drunk. The food is typical greasy bar food that will just add to the Hemmingway belly and send you on your way running to the lavatory. BUT, if you want a unique atmosphere in the likings of Key West, its worth a stop in for a drink.... More

What can I say? Sloppy Joe's is an institution in and of itself...there is no other place like it in the world. Friendly Staff and great sloppy joes. Moderately priced.

This is a great place to visit. We had the Sloppy Joe's for dinner one night. We enjoyed the people watching and the music was great. This is open air and full of people with first come, first served tables. Be prepared to walk around and grab a table when it is open.

The only reason we ate here was because Ernest Hemingway spent a lot of time in the original one here on the key. The food is OK, ambiance is OK, service is good, but it is nothing special other than its notoriety. There are better places to eat. Otherwise Key West is a neat place to visit.
