Just across the street from the Irish football field and basketball arena, this restaurant is a great value and has a very diverse menu. Be sure to get your server's name....they seen to disappear when you need them most. The rest of staff always steps up and helps, but servers need to pay more attention to customers throughout their stay,... More

We were there the day before the game and it was busy but not packed. The service was outstanding (I wish I could remember the name of our waitress because she was great) and the food was even better. We started with the loaded fries (a MUST HAVE!) and pretzels and I would have been full just with that. Then... More

We were in town for the Notre Dame game and got to O'Rourke's around 10am. I'm surprised we got a table because even that early, the place was popping! I think the plan was to get drinks, but I was hungry, so I ordered French Onion Soup, we got some of the spicy mozerella sticks and my husband got wings.... More

Yes, it was the afternoon, and when we requested that they put my alma mater's college football game on, there was a simple nod of the head and voila! there was my beloved football team on the big screen.

What was particularly nice is this restaurant had a small room which accommodated our large family. They had a great selection of food, and the best fish and chips ever. We all enjoyed the food.

I huess its claim to fame is that it is across the street from Notre Dame becasue the food is average. The buffalo sauce has a weird sweet tang to it.

Came in on a Saturday mid afternoon with my wife and 14 year old son. ND had road game in evening so not too crowded. Server seemed disinterested and basically just going through the motions (no fun). We were just there for a drink or two and something to eat for my son. Bottom line chicken pot pie was ok... More

Two large bars and many tables for football fans to enjoy. Everybody was happy and friendly to us TarHeel fans. The beer was cold and the burgers were sizable. It's right across the street from Notre Dame Stadium. Go here and then to the game

Late food is a bonus, and a reasonable beer selection. The waiting staff are hit and miss, some great and others disorganised and uppity. It's the closest to a pub you'll get in the area, and unlike other places in the area, if you want to sit and talk there's an area you can so that away from the music.... More
