“Great querky little pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Food was excellent, our group had the steak, burgers and chicken chilli which were all great. They have a great beer selection including local brews. The staff were friendly, jukebox was cranking and it was cheap!

“Decent pub food but charming staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We called in here as it was the closest place to walk to from our hostle on a chilly late october evening. Our waiter- i wish i could recall his name- was charming and ever so happy to chat. Food arrived speedily and was decent, albeit small. Nice selection of sides and the menu itself is original and hilarious- you'll understand when you read it.

“Slow service, good for a dive bar...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Def a dive bar to hit after a night of drinking. They were playing The Goonies movie night which was cool. The service was extremely slow, and the food was okay. Nothing special.

“Excellent Broadripple "Dive" Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Stopped by on an early Friday evening for dinner. Food was great with attentive service. Had the steak plate--great value and tasty. Very nice local beer selection. Full bar. Lots of room. Would definitely go back. Nice addition to the Broadripple.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

This is such a great place to go eat and drink. I love the Sinking Club-it is huge!!! The best part is it is served with tater tots in the shape of stars! I love it! Everything I have eaten there has been delicious. People are awesome. It's clean and the food is great! Don't miss it!
