The 150-year-old University of Notre Dame is South Bend's biggest tourist draw, and for good reason. Though it's not easy to land seats at the 80,000-plus-capacity Notre Dame Stadium for a "Fighting Irish" football game, you'll find plenty of attractions on the beautiful, expansive campus. Highlights include numerous works of art, the Basilica of the Sacred Heart and the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, a replica of the famous shrine. Football fans will also want to visit the College Football Hall of Fame, which features interesting perspectives on the game and inductee videos. Whether or not you remember the Studebaker automobile, which saw its demise in the early sixties, you're sure to enjoy the Studebaker National Museum, featuring more than 75 vehicles drawn from the history of the company, beginning with horse-drawn carriages. South Bend has several fine museums, including the South Bend Regional Museum of Art and the Northern Indiana Center for History, a complex of four museums. Don't leave without trying truffles or fudge from the South Bend Chocolate Company.

South Bend's favorite pizza
I personally love the atmosphere of rustic noisy pub restaurants. I ordered the fish sandwich and it was great. Most of my friends got pizza and it also looked delicious. The prices were pretty good and there were plenty of vegetarian options as well! Service was a bit slow but we were also there at the peak of dinnertime. We had a group of 8 and all of our food came out at different times, but it wasn't a huge deal to us. If I'm ever in South Bend again I will definitely return!

We stopped by South Bend on our way to Illinois from New York because we were hoping to see Mayor Pete and visit the city he has spoken/written about. We knew we had to stop at Peggs. We are glad that we did. We came into the restaurant close to closing, but they were so accommodating and not at all in a rush to get us out. We ordered a variety of items among us -- breakfast, a burger, and a salad. Everything was great! They are super friendly and also make good coffee:) We also got a Pete 2020 t-shirt as well.

O'Rourke's Public House is a locally owned Irish bar located across from the beautiful University of Notre Dame. With a fantastic family friendly atmosphere, a large patio overlooking the home of the Fighting Irish, two full bars, and great late night opt
Lunched here with my husband and daughter - about 15 minutes after they opened. Place was largely empty. Ordered OâRourkeâs burger (which was very good), a Reuben, and Bangers and Mash (no mash - it was potato chunks). My daughter liked the bangers and mash - although I know I would have been disappointed. It took a while for our food to come - but everyone was pleased. Sodas are large. Service was good. Was just enough food - not tons of fries - but they were good.We are glad to hear you enjoyed our O'Rourke's Burger! We apologize for the long wait for your food. Our management team is addressing the issues you have brought up. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We hope to see you again soon!

We met a friend here for lunch and had a wonderful time. Being aficionados of Victorian architecture, seeing again the interiors of this magnificent structure was a little bit of heaven. The woodwork is a testament to a time when real craftsmanship was honored and appreciated. Though this style of home is not as in vogue as several decades ago; it still is something to behold. Our server, Jani, was friendly and attentive. The prime rib and duck entrees were both flavorful and delicious. The pretzel sandwich was also very tasty. The chocolate torte was a wonderfully indulgent ending to a very enjoyable dining experience. It's been several years since our last visit here; we're sorry we took so long to return. This visit was a satisfying treat for all our senses.

My husband and I stayed at the Inn at Saint Mary's and was referred to the restaurant next door. The menu was decidedly different with not a whole lot of options. We went for the tomato grilled cheese sandwich, spiked tomato soup, and a bib salad. The grilled cheese was excellent and I can't say enough about the spiked tomato soup. The salad was good, as well. Husband had crab cakes and the tomato soup. He liked the soup a lot and said the crab cakes were the best he's ever had.We enjoyed our dinners so much, we returned the next night.Diane-Thanks for the great review! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your dinner. We are always changing our menu so be sure to come again soon! Thank you for choosing to dine with Bistro 933!

We arrived at the Crooked Ewe and found the parking lot to be full. We drove to the other side of the building and there was a small parking lot that appeared to be an employee lot with a wood fired smoker out back. We left, thinking we'd find another place to eat, however when we got to the stoplight, we noticed a parking lot for another business with people appearing to walk to the restaurant. Upon entering the parking lot, there were signs indicating this was the Ewe overflow parking. We got in the restaurant and it was not full as the lot would have indicated. We were waited on quickly and had drinks within minutes. We ordered the hushpuppies as an appetizer and I had the gyro and my wife the arepa. The hushpuppies are amazing. Much different flavor than we expected. These aren't your normal hushpuppies. We absolutely loved them though. My gyro came on a homemade pita what was phenomenal. The flavors were just fantastic with the cucumber kimchi and the pickled red onion. My wife loved her arepa equally as well. Our waitress was back for refills in a timely manner and with the check at the end of the meal as well. The atmosphere was wonderful with a beautiful view of the river outside the back of the restaurant. For a couples date night, it was a hit with my wife. We will definitely be going back. If the lot is full, go back to the corner and park there!

A warm, inviting atmosphere best defines Cafe Navarre. Clearly one of downtown South Bend's most attractive buildings from the exterior, and the view from inside Cafe Navarre is nothing short of breathtaking. The fusion of Old World style architecture wit
The interior of this long ago Bank Building is beautiful, so well done with seamless remodeling. The greatest treats though were the service and the food. The meals are a bit on the pricier side for South Bend, Indiana HOWEVER they are an exceptional VALUE . I had fresh Norwegian trout (not frozen), mussels in an incredible smoky bacon & corn broth that were a true delight to experience. I had a small piece of my trout, cold , for breakfast just now. (it was just too good to leave behind) OH MY, it was again a true taste delight!! Cesar, our waitperson, in answering my query about the origins of the building , finished with "and now it's the best restaurant in S. Bend". I would add: BEST restaurant in any direction , 90 miles from S. Bend.We love that you enjoyed your dining experience with us at Cafe Navarre. It sounds like your meal was invcredible and we strive for perfection in every dish. We hope to see you again soon. Joel GardManager, Cafe Navarre

LaSalle Grill is located in Downtown South Bend's oldest commercial building. Built in 1868 as the St. Joseph Hotel, the building has survived over 146 years. Converted to restaurant use in 1991, LaSalle Grill has become an institution in South Bend and t
Probably the best that anyone could ask for in South Bend. Everything is done well. The staff is by far the most professional around, and if you are looking to impress someone you won't do any better for a hundred miles in any direction. It's an Epicurean haven, and you won't be disappointed as long as you have the coin. Also, get the grown up milk shake for dessert. Thank me later.
