    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 for....pizza is also very good!

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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

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

    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!

    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.

    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.

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

    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!
  • Nikos K.
    Very crowded,live music,nice place to visit but the sloppy Joes sandwich was not as good as advertised.Waitress was constantly asking us to pay & leave,at least 3 times in 5 minutes.Not that friendly.

    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.
