Really like this place

I prefer this place to Brother's down the street. Nice place to grab dinner, grab a beer, watch the game, whatever. Everybody is friendly here. Enjoyed trivia night on Mondays.

This place is absolutely great! My friends and I have recently started hanging out here and have become really enamored of their drinks and food. We don't know for certain, but the food seems fresh and not frozen! It comes out well prepared and always tasty (try the hummus!) On our most recent visit we had a bartender named Brittni... More

If you want a craft beer in South Bend, this is the place. Irish themed bar and restaurant, but lots of americana as well. If you are looking for "a good place to eat" you won't be let down.

I had dinner with my husband, daughter and daughters boyfriend. I had the vegetable boxty with broccoli on the side. It was good but not hot (temperature) enough. 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 pasta that they enjoyed.... 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
