The food was very good. When eating gluten free and vegan this is not always a statement that can be made. The portabella sandwich had such a good flavor. The sweet potato fries were baked and I would have liked seeing less black ones but they were a good compliment to the sandwich. The atmosphere was happy, the staff seemed to make it a point to be happy themselves and that transferred to the diners.

I love the Mark! The menu
I love the Mark! The menu is pretty unique, with lots of cool combinations of food. Everything is very high quality and reasonably priced, and the net part is that it's within very easy walking distance from Notre Dame's campus. We went there for my friend's birthday, and all 10 of us had a great meal and a great experience overall!

Great dining experience! It
Great dining experience! It was our first visit to the Mark Dine & Tap and we will definitely go again. The service was excellent. Two of our party were gluten free and the staff went out of their way to accommodate. Impressive.

Before coming, I had heard
Before coming, I had heard mixed reviews of this restaurant. I took my boyfriend and loved every minute of it. The food was delicious, our server was very kind, and the price was reasonable.

Noise level very high. Replacing tin ceiling with carpeting or other noise reducing material might help. Food is always good.

I wish you to know I travel
I wish you to know I travel annually to the University to see friends who live in the South Bend area. I was a guest at your restaurant for dinner on Sunday 4/7 and lunch and dinner on 4/8. Since the Morris Inn is undergoing renovations, one of my guests suggested your restaurant. I enjoyed everything about your restaurant; especially my new best friends in the bar area; Neal and John. But the acoustics I did not enjoy. The ambient noise created by all the activity made it almost impossible to hear my guests when they spoke in a low voice. I recall your ceiling is metal embossed design while your flooring is linoleum; two items that make for an echo, a reverberation and magnification of sound. I regret to tell you this problem.

Good food. Great Selectoin
The food was good and there was a wide variety of options. I liked the spin on basic food into something more intriguing. It was a little loud. I am not about a silent atmosphere but at a table in the middle it was kind of hard to hear. The staff was all very professional and attentive. Two thumbs up.

Wonderful cuisine, as always!
Wonderful cuisine, as always! We shared the Bavarian pretzel appetizer (enough for 4). They came out piping hot and delicious. A delightful accompaniment for drinks before dinner!

The Mark has unique and delicious food. They always have a nice selection of specials along with a varied menu.
Many healthy choices as well as great treats for dessert. They have well cooked and seasoned vegan choices, comfort food with a twist, and good "meat and potatoes" selections.
Well thought out craft beer selection.
The owner is there when not at The Uptown Kitchen, his other local spot. He is very friendly and accomodating.
You should try it.

Mark Dine & Tap was truly
Mark Dine & Tap was truly a "find" on Open Table! I've never been steered wrong - and this was no exception. Food and service were excellent, and we greatly enjoyed eating on the patio on a pleasant spring evening. The location near the Notre Dame campus was a plus!

To Briscuit or Not to Briscuit
That is the question. Whether it tis nobler to indulge oneself in the large array of delectably tender meats or to be fit with the large and fulfilling salad. To eat. To eat perchance to dine, and to dine no more than when we indulge. and to end thine indulgence on a piece of cheesecake or other dessert. Dessert so delicious that it is the complete reason for dining. One finds themselves so lost in the delicious array that one finds himself salivating at the thought. Yes, that is the answer. for to briscuit is worth the price and is guaranteed to leave you satisfied.

Nice experience for a special occasion. We enjoyed the food and the drinks were really fun!
5/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
the Mark is a true find in South Bend with its imaginative menu and delicious food that is not burgers and fries! We enjoyed delicious seafood, salads, and stirfry. The steak was only average- the only disappointment.

Good Bye Lunch
We had a good bye lunch for a colleague and I sent ahead a note needing gluten free menu and short time frame. Not only were they ready for us, but they custom made the gluten free meal and had us out in 50 minutes without our feeling rushed for lunch.
A wonderful experience with flavorful and satisfying food!
5/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent menu and quality
The Mark is really a great place to eat off teh specials menu, not to mention the standard menu too. There are about 3- 4 apps and entrees on each specials menu and tehy are fantastic.

One of our go-to restaurants....
My husband and I avoid chain restaurants like the plague. They all have the same overpriced, tasteless food. The Mark is one of our go-to restaurants that we frequent regularly. They have a great menu with something that is sure to please everyone. They also have several vegetarian options.

Birthday celebration for 2
We were pleased to eat at The Mark this week to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our food, the service, and the atmosphere was excellent. I had been there a couple of time with friends, once for lunch and once for dinner. We will definitely return. And thank you for the luscious piece of cake for the birthday surprise!

My wife and I took our son to Lax camp at ND and were surprised by the lack of restraunts and bars. Well, the Mark was all we needed. We could have eaten there for days. Everything from the service to the cocktails to the food was awesome and interesting.

Food was good and service
Food was good and service was as well room was a little loud but we could easily carry on a conversation but romantic it wasn't

Great spot for small groups
The food was good, service great and drinks were outstanding with a wonderful wine list.! The noise level though, not so good. We had only four at our table and there were times I struggled to hear the whole conversation. Not a place for a table of eight or more!! We have eaten there before on a nice evening outside and that was really nice! We were there at 7:00 and they had run out of one of the specials already, but did make a substitution which was okay.

Great food, service and tavern
Located next to the Notre Dame campus, The Mark is a fun spot to dine with great food, comfort foods and great service. The bar is energetic with a large wine and beer lists.

Great Food and Service
This place is one of our favorites. My husband and I have a little one at home so we don't venture out often. When we do, we make sure we choose a place that is worth it! The food and service at The Mark never disappoint. We only wished they hadn't run out of an IPA that we wanted to try.

Better than other choices near by
We took a group of 9 here on Saturday for an early lunch. Everyone ordered from the lunch menu. We ordered a variety of sandwiches and found that about half of us were happy with our choices. My wife's burger was not cooked to the temp that she ordered it. I had the brisket and it came cold. Neither of us asked to have corrections made as we were somewhat short for time.
Others in our group were much happier.
Our server did a great job. She knew the menu, anticipated our needs and was pleasant at all times.
We don't get to South Bend often but if we do this restaurant would be a good option compared to the choices near ND campus.

A Really Great Dinner
Well-executed,creative menu. Friendly,personable staff backed up by a manager genuinely interested in making sure we enjoyed our dining experience. Surprisingly quick service in the midst of a post- football game crush of customers. Am already looking forward to returning next week.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun but Loud!
The Mark is conveniently located on Eddy Street, with a good menu. The service is pretty good and the service staff friendly. My only complaint is the sound level.They need some rugs to help with the noise. You can only speak to the person on either side of you. Having said that we will be back at least once very weekend we visit Notre Dame.

Notre Dame Game Day
Did a great job on an ND game night. Reservation time was honored--meals and service did not suffer with the crowd.

Great restaurant at Notre Dame
We enjoyed a great lunch at the Mark Dine and Tap before the ND/USC game! Glad we had reservations because the place was full. We were all pleased with the healthy choices before the big game. The brown rice and vegetable stir-fry was really delicious! The menu offered a great variety to please all of us with dinners, sandwiches and great drinks too! Lots of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options as well. The service was great too! We will be back!

Great spot for Friday night dinner before ND Home football games

Went here after a Notre Dame
Went here after a Notre Dame football game. Despite the crowds the service and food were excellent. Lively location and great staff.

Not the usual fare
An excellent alternative to the McRestaurants and McBars on Eddy St near Notre Dame. Intersting choices; comfort food with a twist. Our service was excellent also. This is a must-do on ND weekends.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Sunday Brunch menu. Limited menu done well. Good value for the $$
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
A very satisfying dinner later in the evening after theater at the Mark. The Chilean sea bass was outstanding and a wonderful list of interesting craft beers both domestic and foreign. My only squabble is that we asked for bread to accompany the meal and we were not informed that there would be a $1.50 charge. Also worth mentioning the delicious Saint Gerome sparkling water.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Location and Quality
Portions are generous and food is presented well. Wait staff is good. Prices are moderately high but you get what you pay for and portions are on the large side. Good for business client entertaining prior to a ND game as they will get you out on time.

The Mark hits the Mark
We brought out of town business associates to the Mark for dinner and every aspect of the evening was great.

The Mark makes its mark at ND!
Great restaurant right near stadium at Notre Dame. Food is excellent, service outstanding and desserts are to die for.
