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.

Great food, great atmosphere! The Guinness Stew was amazing. Always fun to eat good food watching The World Cup on the campus of one of the worlds greatest universities!

While on a trip to Notre Dame, we stopped by twice at O'Rourkes. Once was just for drinks, but the second time was to have an early dinner. I have been there during a football weekend, when it was too packed to move around, but it is also a nice place for a casual drink with an Irish Pub atmosphere,... More

We came here during a busy time, and the service was a bit slow; but we expected it. The selection of craft beer was very good and they had 4 dollar specials. The food was good, with nice portions. We would come here again when we're in the area.
