Irish and Celtic menu, using local meats and produce. Varied menu and terrific selection of beers, craft as well as imports on tap. Music daily and family friendly. Irish breakfasts, sandwiches, and full meals with new selections often. Best hamburger in the area!!! Plus home-made fries!!! In-house desserts are delicious!

My younger brother was visiting from our hometown of Portland, Oregon so my wife and I decided to take him to this local favorite spot for a weekend breakfast buffet. Very cozy, and dimly lit, interior with a definite Irish flair. The staff are local hipsters, bordering on hippies, who project a genuine desire that patrons get exactly what they... More

Enjoyed a great time last weekend. Fish and chips was excellent and so was the Irish stew. Really enjoyed the The Saugatuck Imperial Stout that they had on tap.

I love this place. Great pub atmosphere and suitable for all ages for a good meal. I love the shepherd's pie, the Irish breakfast, and they have a nice Sunday brunch. Keep a nice rotation of microbrews as well as a good selection of scotch.

Fiddlers Hearth has a warm comfortable atmosphere with an authentic Irish pub feel. The food is well prepared and everything I have had there has been good. The service was excellent. It is especially fun to go with a group.

I've visited Fiddler's about once a month. The menu occasionally changes, but only a little. I really like the Jameson pork boxty. And bangers and mash. I'm told they make their own sausage, so sometimes after a Notre Dame football home game weekend they will run out of sausage, so no banger and mash. Not only is the sausage delicious,... More

This place has a great local pub feel. They have a decent selection of beer, the food was excellent and the decor is great. Had the fsh and chips, nice size of fish. It is a little on the expensive side though.
