Sorin’s offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch in a well-appointed dining room. It specializes in fresh seafood and selections from wineries operated by Notre Dame graduates.
Rohr’s is more of an upscale pub with burgers, sandwiches and wings to go along with salads and interesting appetizers. Craft beers rotate as do the signature cocktails, some of which utilize local spirits. Rohr’s is also the spot to catch up with Murf, the legendary bartender.
