Burgers and fish and chips were excellent! Good value for good food--everyone in our party of nine was happy! Service a little slow though.

We arrived yesterday around 3 PM and the place was pretty much empty. Our waitress was friendly and the restaurant was inviting and warm. We ordered the fired pork belly skins with apple jam and they arrived in maybe 5 minutes and were very good. They had an excellent selection of beers which were around 6-7 dollars each. We then...

Recommend: Burger Spinach strawberry salad School was out for the summer, so the place wasn't too crowded. The salad was made with fresh spinach strawberries and goat cheese.

The chips that come with the sandwich are made there but I didn't think they had much flavor other than the salt that was applied after they were cooked. All in all,... More

This was our second attempt to dine here, and this time, we actually had food :) This nice little restaurant across from Notre Dame stadium in Eddy Street Commons has a varied menu with many Irish options as well selections for those not so inclined. Five of us dined there the Thursday of Easter week for dinner beginning around 7:00.... More

We went here as part of a college visit to Notre Dame. The place was full of college students, families, parents... And the menu is worth it.
