The Irish Oak Restaurant Review

: Don your Notre Dame gold and blue and you’ll be in the majority at this near-Wrigley restaurant that features a menu of Irish-inflected bar basics. Choices run from beer-battered pickles and "Irish Nachos" (criss-cut fries topped with cheddar, bacon, scallions and sour cream) to Guinness stew, sandwiches and burgers. More authentic fare includes the shepherd’s pie finished with white cheddar and fish ‘n’ chips. Bavarian pretzels and mini corndogs are not-so-Irish options. For dessert, there's a freshly baked cookie served in a skillet with vanilla ice cream.
