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.

We stopped in for dinner on Tuesday night. The music was loud and I was feeling like we should've chose somewhere else to eat. Our waitress promptly greeted us and after a few sips of a beer I had settled in. We learned that the restaurant was only about 10 years old although decor inside alludes to an older establishment.... More

It's pub food and beer... Very Irish atmosphere. It's close to a nice shopping center with everything from a Notre Dame campus store, pharmacy to really cute Boutiques. Parking is good. Easy access to freeway.

I visit O'Rourkes about twice every three months. It's convenient to ND Campus and on my way home from work. It's a relaxed atmosphere, especially when classes are not in session. I have had lunch here as well as dinner and happy hour. I have never been disappointed. O'Rourkes offers a chicken wing appetizer with many options for seasoning. The... More

My wife and I decided to give O'Rourke's Public House a try after finding Corby's closed. The restaurant is located in a fairly new shopping center real close to campus. The beer selection was very good. We thought the food was very good. Only disappointment was that they were out of bread pudding. Excellent service and our waitress was helpful... More
