Awesome Bar!

Posted on 11 / 08 / 2014

This place is pretty cool. It's pretty laid back inside. They have a bunch of beer selections including Sun King and other local beers. On the menu they have clear marked vegan items. In all I would say they have about 10 vegan items which was nice. We had the vegan corn fritters as a starter with vegan ranch sauce and it was so good. For my main mea I had the vegan meatball sub with fries and it tasted great! Will definitely be back again.

Pros: Pretty good selection of vegan items , Fast service, Giod prices

What I Wanted

Posted on 08 / 05 / 2013

So a lot of the time I hear people tell me, "Oh, well, that's unhealthy vegan food." Hey, when a restaurant has anything vegan on their menu that is more tasty than a bland salad or just fries, I jump for joy.
This place was perfect! I wanted a burger and fries. They did one better. A vegan meatball sub! And a jackfruit "pulled pork" sandwich. And star-shaped tater tots. Delicious! Friendly staff and good prices.

Nice to have vegan bar food

I agree with the previous reviewer. This place serves greasy bar food, so if that's your thing, then you'll be pleased as punch to eat at Sinking Ship. Their tots are everything you want in a tot and I enjoyed their seitan wings.

That said, I wasn't blown away by the food. However, in a city with limited vegan options, it's nice to be able to eat bar food with the masses :)

Pros: Vegan options, Greasy bar food
Cons: A bit unexciting

Yummy greasy bar food

Posted on 01 / 03 / 2013

If you're in the mood for a bar, bar food, and some vegan dining options, look no further.

The Sinking Ship serves the standard veggie burger, veggie nachos, vegan chili. They also have Seitan Hot Wings made by Chef Ian of Indianapolis. They post their full menu on their website. Lots of veggie choices and quite a few vegan choices for a bar.

Pros: Bar food, Dive Bar Vibe (if that's your thing)
Cons: Dive Bar Vibe (if it isn't your thing)
