After a day of walking around the Notre Dame campus and visiting the Basilica, we were hungry. We found O'Rourke's and decided to give it a try. We really liked this place. Good atmosphere and the food was very good.

Ordered O Rourke’s Nachos, Gipper wings and hamburgers. Large portions and friendly service. A Typical sports bar pub. It has a delightful terrace. Games are watched with enthusiasm.

They do have a small back room where they are able to fit large parties, however, as stated above, it may depend on community/Notre Dame activities. Calling would be best.
