We stopped by for a quick dinner on our way to the airport. Nice sports atmosphere with plenty of tv's for my sports obsessed family members to watch NFL football while we ate. The veggie wrap was full of flavor and the burgers my kids ordered also got rave reviews. We had no trouble finding parking right outside the restaurant and there is a parking garage across the street. A nice place for a quick casual meal.

Stopped in a couple hours before the UND football game. Location is great. Just across the street from campus. Got seated within 10 minutes. The inside is your typical Irish Pub. Wait staff was friendly and efficient. Drinks were good, cold and priced reasonable. The problem we had was getting our food. took over an hour. Once we got it it was very tasty considering we had to inhale our food. Made it to the game right when it started. Will stop back and allow more time.

I've heard the burgers are amazing, but the drink specials and the clientele leave a lot to be desired. The bartender and bouncers were fantastic, however, and watched out for us against the unfriendly older men. I recommend Brother's down the road for late night drinks and a better atmosphere. Might go back during the day to try the food, but I'll avoid this place at night.

We visited O'Rourke's while in South Bend at a hockey tournament. The location is lovely and a short walk from the Compton Family Ice Centre. Without a reservation, over 30 of our families arrived hoping they may be able to accommodate us for dinner. While the pub was already busy, they prepared a room for us quickly and served our group with smiles. The food was very good many options for pub fare or lighter interesting options. O'Rourke's had a large selection of beers to try. Our servers were helpful and attentive, especially given our unexpected arrival. I would definitely recommend a visit while in South Bend.
