This is a great pub right near campus. Food was great! Gotta try the boxty! We went here during a stay for a game and would definitely go back. Nice atmosphere and good service!

“Great spot @ ND”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We were fortunate enough to grab a table in the back room @ O'Rourke's this weekend and our group of 12 was able to have an great dinner. The food was excellent and the service was better than the food. The bar was packed, but all the staff did their best to deal with the mobs of people and we very much enjoyed the whole atmosphere. We will be sure to come back & we love the bar!

“Fun Pub”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Went here after a ND football game for a late dinner and a drink.
Even though it was packed the service was good and the fish and chips was excellent.
Drinks are reasonably priced and atomsphere is great.
Fun place!

“One of my favorites in South Bend”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

I've eaten here about 3 times during visits to South Bend and always try to fit in a visit when I'm in town if I can. It is a traditional Irish pub, but the food is really very good. The service this time was a little less than in the past but we had a very big party so that might have been part of the issue. They have amazing marshmellow dipping sauce for the sweet potato fries if you like that, and great pretzel bread for sandwiches and burgers. This time I tried their salmon and it was excellent as well. The prices are very reasonable, the food is great, and they have a large selection of beer (and other drinks). It is located in Eddy Commons which was super convenient to Notre Dame and our hotel, and I think this is one of the best options in there. I would highly recommend this place!
