This is a great, historic dive with great drinks, nice live music and friendly staff...I don't quite understand the negative reviews. You can see right away what type of establishment this is as you walk in...you are free to walk back out and have drinks somewhere else..at a snazzy place for thrice the price, where they have pretty bathroom stalls...

Bar with a Key West flare. Good solo guitar player entertained the patrons. Staff was not real pleasant. Try to toss a quarter in the fish's mouth - it's tough!!

Don't be fooled by the Sloppy Joe's on Duval. The real original Sloppy Joe's is around the corner on Greene St.. Bras and dollar bills hang from the ceiling and the beer is constantly flowing. There"s a huge tree stump in the middle of the bar and the floor is anything but level. It's the type of bar you could... More

We didn't eat here, but the bar finger-food looked good. We went in to see it because of Hemingway, but stayed to have a beer because of the fun atmosphere. The entire ceiling and all walls are covered with dollar or five dollar bills all signed by previous patrons. But even more interesting are the signed bras hanging from the... More
