    No matter how touristy....the food is fab, the bands are cool, and the people watching is amazing! Black bean quesadillas w salsa are to die is also very good!

    The Jameson flows like water here. Bartender rings big ass bell when you leave a good tip. We got lots of rings! Great place, great music.

    Classic bar where Hemingway used to drink during his tenure in Key West. Get the special Margarita or a beer and listen to music. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The bar ever! ❤️ The band was amazing, great service, nice food (try Sloopy Joe Sandwich!) and cold beer. It's like Titanic's basement party!

    Raunchy entertainment, generous drinks, and amazing staff. Suzanne took great care of us, made us feel right at home.

    Depends on who's in the kitchen...sometimes there's too much "powder" in the sloppy joe. Still, the music is AWESOME! And the beer flows cheaply from lots on tap! Avoid 6 - 7:30 p.m. Crowded!

    If you are a tourist but want a little local flavor but not too much, this is a great place, kind of a must visit in Key Weird!

    Loud during peak hours. Can't go wrong with their Sloppy Joe sandwich. Have a beer and channel your inner Hemingway.

    A solid OK. The atmosphere is fun. The live music was nice. The drinks are a bit watered down. The food, while huge, is frozen and canned. Share a sandwich. And don't get your hopes up.

    They have some good frozen drinks. Also the bad that does Eminem covers is freaking awesome. Especially the drummer.

    Est. 1933. Some attribute the Sloppy Joe Sandwich to this bar, which has served a loose beef sandwich, although the bar itself does not claim this and research suggests it came from Sioux City, Iowa.

    A fun stop for a cold beer and to check out the scene. (And it is a scene.)

    Great location- the partiers have Sloppy Joe's in the front. The beer aficionados have the Tap Room. Rogue, Southern Tier, and others.

    Get the sloppy joe I was sceptical about how good it could be but it's definitely worth it. I only wish my elementary school had had their recipe.

    Hemingway recommended the name. I recommend the cute blond guy who sang on Wed until 4:15.

    No doubt a good bar with live music. But if you want the authentic version head to Captain Tony's Saloon down the street.

    Where the local (and not so local) cops come to relax off duty, very safe place to have a good time!

    Come in and get a Sloppy Joe sandwich, drink a beer, and listen to some music. You may not be able to write like Hemingway, but you can drink like him!

    Try the frozen Rum Runner. Now this is what I call a Slushie. Also in a nice souvenir mug.

    Heard the music of the Doerfuls and bought their Christmas CD. A little touristy for me, but you have to experience Sloppy Joe's at least once.
