This is the best place to hang out in Ipswich at night, and has good food. They also have a really good, fairly priced pub menu. I've never been disappointed by anything I've ordered; the food is great. Everywhere else in Ipswich overcharges for their food/drinks, or has nothing to do. The sports bar has pool and darts, great personalities,... More

We got take out steak tip dinners. First of all, they gave French fries when we ordered rice, second of all, the steak tips were bit sized, and it was literally 6 bites of steak. They should be embarrassed by the portion. They were also tough and no comparison to the Tips at the Choate Bridge Pub, next time we'll... More

We've lived in town for several years, but just tried the Ipswich Sports Bar recently and were quite surprised by the variety on the menu, and the great vegetarian options they have. They have the best veggie burger I've had at a restaurant. And their prices? Nobody beats their prices! It definitely has a "local" feel and atmosphere. But don't... More

I have dined at both the bar and in the booths. The food quality is as good as any other place in town and this is a town that expects top quality food. The tradeoff is that the facility is just average for appearance but the pricing gives good value for the money.

My friends and I have been coming to the sports bar for many years. Since 2008 we have always found the price to portion, or the price to pour ratio well worth the price. My friends and I always compare food and drink to anywhere else and 9 times out of 10 the Sports Bar in Ipswich is the best... More

We like this place for the wings, the keno, the beer and the owner. He is usually our server when we show up. He remembers what we drink and brings it over as soon as we walk in. Wings are good and the service is above average. A nice local place to start the night.

It doesn't look at all inviting from the outside, and the decor isn't much on the inside, but this place has incredible food (for some reason). Read the rest of my review at: http://mass-ns-restaurants.blogspot.com/2010/09/ipswich-sports-bar-grill.html

I just moved in to town and went looking for a quick bite, alone, and the Manager, Paul, noticed a new face in town, introduced me to people at the bar, where I ate one of the best Rueben sandwiches ever, and that is one of my favorites so I was thrilled to have it done so well locally.
