Not a bad place to watch some football. Especially Notre Dame! Has tv's everywhere so it's hard to talk. Sports memorabilia in the walls and Guinness on draft. Food was ok. Typical sports bar food. It's fun if you are expecting this type of place.

Had a late night snack here wile visiting Notre Dame. Close to campus, good food and quick service. It was crowded and quite loud on a Thursday night. Not a great place for a quiet conversation.
