A Key West landmark- at least as bars go! ‘Officially’ established the day that prohibition ended. It’s a no frills bar with live music and bar type snack foods. Sit at the bar and enjoy the vibe. The mojito’s are fabulous!
Must go since everyone expects it, and everyone has heard of it. There is always a long line up to get in, so I got there before opening on a Sunday and was first in line so I had a complete choice of seating. Loved...the pictures of Cuba, history of Sloppy Joes and especially the pictures of Ernest Hemmingway. The sloppy Joe meat. mix is kind of mild but has a really nice tangy taste to it, especially loved it on the taco salad. Staff checks on you frequently and eager to please accommodating every request. There's life music entertainment and painting through the restroom even the ceiling has adornments. Simply put it help put Key West on the map. Great staff. Recommend the taco salad with sloppy Joe mix, delicious. The appetizers are very popular here. Complete bar serviceMore
I was pleasantly surprised by Sloppy Joe’s! For such a tourist destination it exceeded expectations. Staff was really nice and drink options plentiful. They had a delicious Key Lime cider on tap. Loved our bartenders Julie and Ashley. Must go if visiting Key West!
For drinks and live music, Sloppy Joe's is a must visit in Key West. It's a fun environment that should top the list of bars to visit. The food, not so much. It's ordinary, pre-made food...but again, not the place to go to eat.
Came in around 11:00AM on a Saturday and we were lucky enough to get seats at the smallish front bar just as it was opening. This place was on our friend's list of places to visit and we were not disappointed.
The prices were on...par with the rest of Key West, and the drinks were good, but the highlight was our bartender Tammy! (Apparently she is not the original Tammy, who was working the big bar, but she was AMAZING!
She asked all of our names as soon as we sat down, and really made us feel comfortable! We didn't feel like annoying tourists AT ALL. We talked about some of the things that we wanted to do and she was happy to make suggestions.
WSe had to take NOTES!
Best key lime pie?
Conch fritters? (Theirs were the best)
She shared all of the tips and tricks!
Having spent many years in the service industry myself, I appreciate when a bartender is GENUINELY friendly and helpful. We also had the sloppy fries, which my husband LOVED, but would have been plenty of food for 2 people. I ate ALL of my conch fritters. No sharing for me!More
So you need to sit in the “tap room” It’s so much quieter back there and the bartender is amazing. Possibly the best Cuban sandwich I had a whole trip and the whole staff just made you feel like you were right at home. We...almost didn’t come because I was afraid it was a tourist trap but it’s not it has really good food.More
We visited Sloppy Joe's on a Monday night and were pleasantly surprised with the live music and fun atmosphere.
We ordered typical pub food and it was pretty tasty.
Our server was the BEST!
Fun time was had by all!
