The first thing that hits you when you walk through the doors is old beer and a dirty bar smell. We should have walked out right then. In addition the full dumpster next to the building radiated a smell that permeated the outside seating area. We ordered the special Hemingway margarita which the menu clearly states there is a floater of Grand Marnier on top which we had to remind the bartender who then proceeded to pour the cheap awful version of Grand Gala on top. This happened with the second bartender as well. What a rip-off.

We are so sorry to hear about your experience with us. We have since trained our bar staff to stick to the description of how the menu states the item comes. (unless specified otherwise by the guest) Ever since this review we send to send our maintenance department to clean up our waste area and keep it clean and empty of debris to prevent this situation from ever happening again, our most sincere apologies.

Visited on a Tuesday at 5:15 -got in with no wait. Then the wait began. S..L..O..W doesn’t really explain it. Maybe inattentive is a better descriptor. Asked for several items that he never brought. Drinks were only refilled upon request. Just not a pleasant experience. To add insult to injury the food was mediocre AND overpriced. Won’t be back - very disappointing.

We apologize for the poor service. We try to get everyone seated in a timely manor while keeping the serving staff up to par and attentive to our guest's needs. We price our menu items with other local competing businesses and what time of year it is to stay in conjunction with the scene around us. Were always getting better and more competitive so we encourage you to come try us again!

We have eaten at Sloppy Joe's a few times during our trips to Treasure Island. The view is beautiful and it is fun to sit outside to eat. The food is okay.
