Great food and atmosphere

Had a late dinner here on the road. Need special sandwich was great. As well as the salad with sirloin (steak cooked perfectly). Food came out fast. Live music was a plus

Great food, large selection of scotch whiskeys, as well as IPAs. Service was excellent, prices reasonable. Went back for a second night. Keep up the good work!

Pull up a chair and share a table! Listen to the sound of a live band playing in the next room. This place may be crowded but the food is authentic and good. Most of your dishes come out in newspaper! You definitely feel you've stepped into Ireland and into a local pub! You Must experience this pub!!!!

Great food, fun atmosphere, staff is friendly and usually do not have to wait long to be seated and to get your order. Nightly music enhances the traditional Irish experience.

Stopped by for a beer and food with friends. I got fish and chips, which were delicious! Great Irish pub fare. Fun atmosphere. Parking is tricky, but manageable.

This is what a public house should be! Food, music and family friendly! The food was good and traditional Irish. The Guinness was good though not served in a proper glass. Waitstaff was awesome. There was a toy and game corner which helped us with our super-tired toddler!

My friend and I were driving through Indiana and coming up to South Bend about lunch time and decided to buzz into town and see what we could find. Luckily we stumbled upon Fiddlers. I am not well versed in Irish cuisine or atmosphere, but my friend had just spent 10 days in Ireland and told me the feel of... More

Great atmosphere, service, and food. I had the traditional Bangers & Mash (which were excellent. Unfortunately, I was there too early for the band (which was setting up). That would have made the experience perfect. :)

We met a group here for a meeting. I understood the music and great beer, but had not eaten here before. I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Service was OK, but it is a tavern, so no bad. I would definitely recommend this establishment.

We visited Friday Night and the band was already playing great Irish classics for a packed bar and restaurant. I love the family style seating as it forces you to talk to others in the Public House👍🏼
