Everything made fresh and in house is pretty much all you need to know. From the Shepards Pie to the Steakhouse Boxty it is all delicious. Don't forget the fish and chips. The only thing I will say, is that this isn't a 15 minute lunch spot, it will take a bit to get your food etc. So far my... More

My husband and I come to eat here periodically, just because the food is so awesome and the atmosphere is relaxed at times and crazy other times. They have bands at night and board games to play at the table if you feel like it. There are chairs to sit in if you don't feel like sitting at a table... More

Went here for dinner last Friday evening. My first impression as I walked into the place was that it reminded me of an authentic Irish country village pub. Like the ones you have seen in the movies Darby O'Gill and the Little People and The Quiet Man. The restaurant has open seating. Meaning that you don't make reservations, or put... More

We were here for lunch. Just before St Patrick's Day! Authentic Irish music was being played the entire place was laced with green! The locals were having a great time. Service was great! The food was tasty and truly Irish!

We recently dined at Fiddler's Hearth for the first time. The atmosphere is casual and the menu is interesting. It is open seating and you are encouraged to sit a one of the long tables and introduce yourself to the other people there. I ordered the Steakhouse Boxty ($11.00). I had never had this dish before and loved it. A... More

The website looked great showing food pics and they have an interesting menu. It was a place we had not been before so we gave it a try. Parking was hard to find. It is an Irish Pub, but I was unaware what that meant. We were told to sit where we wanted. None of the tables looked inviting and... More

Pub seating throws some people off but works fine once you get used to it. Feels what I think a real pub would be in a small Irish town. Good choices of food. Great beer selection. Fun music some nights.

Fantastic beer list. I had the salmon sandwich. They smoke the salmon onsite and it was awesome. Communal seating options. Lively on a cold Tuesday night with local musicians playing.

The service is great; the food choices are varied, flavorful and certainly enjoyable. Some evenings there is some very good local entertainment. I'd suggest this as an enjoyable evening choice for out-of-towners, and worthy of being a regualr stop for locals. They have a great list of on-tap beer choices.
