    I really enjoy the Vegan meatball sub. They also have a really good selection of beer. The draft selections were pretty stacked with IPAs last time I went, but the selection changes regularly.

    If you need to charge your phone or computer, sit at one of the booths or at the bar for an outlet. The free wifi makes it a great place to drain your batteries while being productive.

    this is the best bar for any funny comedian to do their set for comedy in America. And the beer is very cheap low-price!! And I can't wait to try their food again. The food is excellent…

    Seitan gyro is delicious, Mac and cheese is so creamy, and the drinks are very well priced.

    Can't beat half priced burger Monday and $2 PBRs! The Chuck Norris burger is my favorite - give it a shot! Then again their entire menu is great.

    The taps usually have good beers, try the Pumking when they have it. Nice outdoor space, but the stage and the dart boards are gone!

    I recommend the Fidel Gastro Wings. The service was great. I was amused by the hipsters drinking PBR. Art on the wall is cool.

    Forgo the fires and go right for the tater tots. I mean who doesn't love tater tots that come in the shapes of stars? Nazis that's who.

    their food is amazing for the low prices! If you can't go to St. Elmo's restaurant. Go to the sinking ship for the great nightlife in Indianapolis, Indiana.

    Dont worry about getting your beer in a mason jar, its actually 17.5oz so youre getting free beer vs a pint glass. Dont believe me ask the bartender to prove it!

    Damn good Mac and cheese! Although if you order the Sinking Club, ask for the bacon well done, as they do not cook the bacon enough to render the fat for your average bacon lover.
