The fried pickles and homemade fries are right tasty. The fish and chips wasn't up to Scottish standards, but was good. Irish beef stew made with sirloin was a hit with me! During a really demanding football Saturday, the restaurant staff kept the quality of...More

Stopped in for late lunch while traveling back to Tn. from Wisc. College towns generally have an abundance of restaurant options. Because of the time, it was fairly empty. Service was decent and the grub was pretty good.

Husband and granddaughter had bangers and mash, there was nothing left! I had the turkey sandwich, quite tasty. Do recommend for food, and atmosphere.

A lively setting for a large group. We were part of a large wedding party. Lots of space, great music from the juke box and an attentive bar tender makes this a great stop for the party train.

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.
