We visited this classic restaurant on our visit down to Key West. We ate "Key West snacks" and some of their good sandwich. The children ate their pizza. Location is prefect and here is also happy for a beer or two. Many tourists of course, but it is well worth a visit to this "institution". //Mats Samaras, Stockholm, Sweden

Although there is a lot of good bars for live music on Duval, this seemed to be the best place for dancing. Had lots of fun!

We loved Sloppy Joe's last year. For some reason it just did not appeal to us this time....it took a while for a server to come to our table since she was chatting at the bar,,,, she seemed disinterested.... and the conch fritters did not seem to have much conch and were undercooked.... so we decided to finish our drinks...

I have heard about this place for years by some friends who had visited, so we had to try it and I'm glad we did! It had a great atmosphere and the Sloppy Joe that I had was wonderful.

My wife and I joined my 30 something son and his wife and friends in Key West for a few days on his boat the beginning of August. Key West is all about night life and one of our favorite spots was Sloppy Joe's - specifically for the great funky band and the dancing. It's important to note that the... More

If you want to be able to tell folks back home that you ate at Sloppy Joe's...then by all means go. BUT don't expect a Great culinary experience. I've tasted better Sloppy Joe's out of a can purchased at a grocery store. Our server was friendly and reasonably efficient....the singer was really good and we enjoyed listening to him.

It's a must go when you're there. Other than that, it's kind of like any vacation bar. There were so many others that were just as fun and entertaining. Don't spend your whole night there and miss the others.

Sloppy Joes is a "must" when one visits Key West. We used to go every summer but haven't been back in about 10 years. Although we didn't eat this time, we did order Bloody Marys - which were tasty. Staff was extremely friendly. Would recommend.

Thank Roxanne03
