Sloppy Joe's Bar - Treasure Island FL

Sloppy Joe's On The Beach has good food and good fun

sloppy joes bar treasure island fl front entrance








Sloppy Joe's Bar on Treasure Island, Florida is popular, laid back, and fun. A sister site to its more famous Key West sibling, it has a huge following of both locals and Florida beach visitors.

It is well-known, locally, for its good food and mid-July "Ernest Hemingway Look-A-Like Contest."

I came here, last night, for dinner and to watch the sunset. It had been awhile and I thought Sloppy Joe's would be relatively empty since it is so late in the tourist season, but I was definitely wrong.

It was packed with a happy crowd, many of whom had cameras on their tables in anticipation of a beautiful Florida beach sunset.

Sloppy Joe's On The Beach is an 11,000 square ft restaurant attached to the Bilmar Beach Resort.

I have not been to the original Sloppy Joe's in Key West, but it is hard to imagine a place more popular than here.

You can get to it via of Gulf Blvd or by coming up from the beach on the Treasure Island BeachTrail

Since I did not have a date, and there was a wait for the premium lower level patio seating of the two-tiered deck...I sat at the bar.
