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

Great surprise, but then again, it shouldn't have been! An Irish Pub just across from the main gate of Notre Dame University - Home of the Fighting Irish - shouldm't be a surprise to anyone. Although O'Rourke's offers up the traditional pub fare, its preparation is superb and its presentation was far more than we expected. Reasonably priced, excellent service,... More

Loved the restaurant...big, very irish...and clean. The only things was the service was a little slow and we were only 4 tables. Governor Christie was there at the moment...so probably everyone was taking care of his party.

What a disappointment. Cute Irish bar/restaurant with outside seating directly across from the Notre Dame campus. We took our daughter to dinner last Wednesday night, August 20th after moving her into her apartment close to ND. We were seated outside. Waitress took our order. I asked for a bowl of chicken noodle soup as I was not feeling well. Drinks... More

Hummus appetizer was fantastic. Burgers and salad were pretty standard. Great patio atmosphere to enjoy a summer afternoon.

This Irish themed bar is adjacent to the Notre Dame campus - home of the Fighting Irish. In term time it is no doubt full of students, but we were there in the summer holidays and it was a quieter. The staff are friendly and made a Bellini though it was not on the menu (other places don't do this).... More

Right across from ND campus in Eddy Commons. The atmosphere is different and very neat. The food is good and moderately priced. Service was fair. They do take reservations and we definitely will go there again.
