Live music every night, cheap drinks and a great atmosphere... it's like something out of a film i can imagine that if I go back in 10 Years it will still be the same but that what makes it so amazing!! A definite must if your looking to experience the completely chilled Florida keys vibe

Food was mediocre, staff was friendly. It is a "seat yourself" place. You have to stand around waiting on someone to get up - hence you have a pile of folks standing around / in the way waiting on a table. Or asking if you are almost done and want your table when you are finished.

We stopped in for drinks and appetizers in the middle of the day. It's a really crowded place but we were lucky enough to get a table for all of us. The atmosphere is fun and exciting....a great live band had the place rockin'. People got up and danced by their tables and were having fun. The waitresses and bartenders... More

This is a super busy pub on Duval Street. We went in March with a lot of spring breakers, and we went here twice, once on St Pattys day. The band the first night we were there was good. On St. Patty's day, they had a 2 guy band that was pretty crass and crude, but it was St. Patty's... More

This is a walk in bar. There's usually live performers and it gets pretty loud. Seating is tight but it's part of the atmosphere. The food and drinks were great and I was highly impressed with our waitress traversing everyone and remembering our order and where we were. Had a blast!

We stopped in Sloppy Joe's for a late lunch. Nice atmosphere but food was just so so. Service was VERY slow.

Didn't expect much from this place but you just have to get a drink at Hemingways bar Unexpected surprise for lunch. Sloppy Joe ale was great, fish tacos were excellent and the bar staff (where we sat) was beyond helpful and friendly. It's crowded but that part of the fun Most "historic" places are not good restaurants. Sloppy Joes is... More

In my opinion very overrated-- I have had better sloppy joes" . It is an iconic place to visit in Key West but it is very noisy and really busy. Great fro bar crawling to get some food into you -- also has live music.

We really enjoyed this popular spot. The band was excellent! Great spot to enjoy some drinks and bar food. By 9:00 the tables are taken away to make room for the dance floor and a much younger crowd arrives.

One of the most popular places on Duval. Always rowdy, always loud, always fun and always crowded. Great drinks and entertainment and the food isn't bad either. You can't help but have a good time. Can get a little crazy late night. No kids at night.

Thank Wano16
