“Great people - great night”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

This place was great!! I went there for my birthday and had a blast!! The bartenders( Nicole and Steve) were amazing! I felt right at home. They were very knowledgeable and helped me decide what was great to drink. Had heard they were overpriced but not true. They have great specials and are comparable to most nice bars in town. I will be back again and again

“More food that you can eat, but not that you won't want to!”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

Fun, casual atmosphere right off of the Notre Dame Campus. In great location with lots of other restaurants and shops. Nice bar area as well. We were able to watch the LaCrosse game while eating. There were many items to chose from. I had the tuna melt and their homemade chips, I could only eat half! Other members at the table got the chicken wrap and the pretzels. The portions were very large. Everything was very good! We will definitely be back while visiting our son. He had never been there either, but said he will definitely be back!

Reviewed April 23, 2012

What a great place to eat! It's right off of the campus and the food was fantastic! You get a lot of food for your money. I will definitely be eating here again when we return to South Bend!
