I also had a side salad that was meager. Husband had the shepherds pie which he liked (rate a 4) and the others each had the give cheese... read more

Nice Irish pub on the campus of The Fighting Irish. Stopped in while traveling through. The blackened chicken wrap and the reuben were very good. Not the best I ever ate but really good pub fare for a campus bar. They had Smithwicks on draft so I was a happy camper. Server was good and efficient, but not overly friendly... More

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.
