Great little pub with an Irish feel

If you visit South Bend and you like beer and Irish pubs you have to stop here. They have an authentic Irish menu, I would highly recommend the fish and chips. Most nights you can find a local band or musician playing here. The only downside is this is small place and it can get busy which makes it... read more

I had lunch here while my wife was out fulfilling her bridesmaid duties, (nails, hair, kleenex, etc.). I stopped in as a recommendation and was not disappointed. The bar area was pretty open as only two ladies and an older regular sat talking. Before my food even arrived which was pretty fast, everyone was talking, laughing and enjoying drinks. I... More

We walked over to Fiddlers on a Friday night hoping to enjoy live music. This place did not disappoint! I love it that there is no cover charge. We found a place to sit and were able to order desserts at 9pm. I had pint of good cider and flourless chocolate cake. Daughter had the guiness brownie. Both were very... More

Great selection of beer and whiskeys (scotch and bourbon) and great food. Dean(?) was a very knowledge bartender and made a pass thru visit very enjoyable. The chef has created some great dishes and adds specials

We love coming to Fiddlers Hearth. For an authentic Irish meal in the Midwest, this is the place to go. Great music, great food in a fun atmosphere. Don't be afraid to share a table, it adds to the experience.

Really nice atmosphere. Live music at 9pm (at least on Friday night when we were there), good Irish food and a great selection of beer. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed the meal, drinks, the live music, and talking to intellectuals from Notre Dame partial physics lab. Great mix of people. A great time and would go back in summer to walk along the river with the wife.

A wonderful Irish environment with family style seating and a full bar. A wonderful lunch location especially if you can snag the comfy chairs by the fireplace. Locally owned by a couple that believes in giving back to the community - you are not only supporting a local small business but the community in general. Genuine Irish fare (I had... More

Food is average and a bit pricey. But the coziness of Fiddler's Hearth is wonderful. Very small place and not built for a big crowd. Come for the drinks, not the food.
