This delightful pub in downtown South Bend is a GREAT place to go for lunch. I went with a group of guys in our men's club for lunch and it was a hit with everyone! The atmosphere was identical to that which we had experienced in pubs we visited around Ireland - very casual and inviting. The wait staff was... More

We stopped in for lunch after visiting a local museum. The food was good and the service was very good. The list of beers and drinks was impressive. This is worth the stop in for a meal.

Fiddler's Hearth is a great pub in downtown South Bend with an extensive list of hard to find beers. If you come in from out of town for a game, stop here for a pint and a meal. I recommend the potato pancakes with a zombie dust APA from 3 floyds.

In town for Notre Dame football with my family. I had just returned from Ireland so now I'm fussy about any Irish Pub that claims to be Irish. Well, from the moment we walked in I was taken back to a wonderful memory that I had just experienced. The sharing of tables was so cool. We had a nice booth... More

Fiddler's Hearth is a wonderful, family owned Irish pub! Many people are regulars. The menu has traditional Irish food as well as a range of healthy and indulgent fare. Our family and friends have never been disappointed with any choice. The beers are perfect with the food. I highly recommend this restaurant!

I'm a fan of this establishment because of it's atmosphere and selection of ales however my last couple of experiences with regard to the food is somewhat disappointing. Although it's a couple of months since I last visited FH my recent trip to Scotland where I indulged in a delicious steak & Guinness pie stuffed with beef brought back a... More

We went to South Bend and picked Fiddler's Hearth for our lunch. We had the smoked salmon dip with a great rosemary garlic bread for an opener. Ordered the Bangers & Mash, Fish & Chips, and the Ham & Brie sandwich among the three of us. The food was fast and hot, and the beer selection was great. The fish... More

We stopped here for drinks last weekend. Loved it. A great, authentic little Irish pub. They have live Irish music and Guiness and Harp on tap. What else could you ask for. My only gripe was that we wanted to sit in the bar area but it's so tiny you can literally fit like 8 people in there.

Best Irish Pub in the Midwest, if not anywhere. Got the banger boxty, sausage wrapped in a potato pancake. Along with a pint of Black and Tan, what fun. Try their Shepherd's Pie or the Irish Stew for a treat from the homeland.
