After a recent basketball game, a few of us decided to have lunch at O'Rourkes. Sandwiches were the deal - pulled pork, fish, and grilled cheese. We also had salads and soup. All the items were good and the server was also attentive.

Cool bar. Had draft line issues the first night but seemed fixed the next night we went in. Staff was great, thanks Kimmy! Chicken wings and pretzel bites were delicious

Located across the street from the bookstore. On-street no meter parking. A nice selection of on-tap beers in a "public house" atmosphere. Very fun and not youthful annoying but lively and a good place for a beverage and meal

Everything we ordered was tasty and all the sandwiches come on a brioche bun. The French Onion soup was a home run!

Granted, we had a large group of about 20 people, but we practically had to beg to order. Then we had to literally wave down our waiter to get our checks. Then it took over 15 minutes for him to bring them to the table....More

Great location directly across from Notre Dame campus and a 5 minute walk to hockey rink and football stadium. Nice selection of beer, great atmosphere, friendly waitress and good food. It's a place you'll return to.

Ate here before the big game. The atmosphere was fun. I had a hamburger, salad, and fries. It was all very delicious. This restaurant is within walking distance to all the games and the Eddy Shops.

Great location near the stadium and campus. We stopped in Friday afternoon before the Saturday football game. It was already packed at 2pm. That said, our 45 minute wait was closer to 30 minutes. Lots of beers to choose from and relatively simple pub food...More

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.
