This place is always hopping and the service at either bar is always excellent and friendly. Lindsay and Kerrigan are great at their jobs! Good, fun and comfy atmosphere, Can't wait to go back!

Food, atmosphere, service all just okay on a Friday afternoon for lunch. You'd have a fine meal, just nothing impressive.

What a wonderful experience. Had lunch here on the day of the Notre Dame/Stanford football game. Kickoff was set for 7:30, and we stopped in shortly after noon...place was packed but we were quickly seated. Minde, our primary server (it appears they use a team concept) was friendly and efficient. We had the good fortune to be seated in a small side area, where we could at least carry on a conversation. Enjoyed a Harp and the grilled chicken breast sandwich with fries. Prices were reasonable. Restroom was clean. Would recommend this as part of the Notre Dame experience.

This is a generic Irish pub style restaurant near the Notre Dame campus. The menu is nothing special, but it serves Guinness draft stout and a wide selection of adult beverages. This place is bound to be successful because of its proximity to the home of the Fighting Irish.

This was a quieter, but still busy, place than the bar (Brothers) down the street. I got a Sangria and my friend got a strawberry cider. I would go back again!
