This is a pub, not a “bar/club”. Grab a pint, converse w friends, listen to live musicians (sometimes) while you enjoy some humble Celtic fare. It’s a place you can take your kids, parents or date and enjoy a friendly, casual atmosphere.

The food and beer was amazing. The best corned beef that I have ever had. The “seat yourself” family seating is a bit odd for me. The atmosphere and wait staff were amazing.

A pub with a nice selection of wholesome fare with an Irish slant. A nice selection of craft brews, both local and regional. Large table settings, that can lend itself to Euro seating, enjoy the trip.

So hard to choose. I wish I could recall out servers name, because she was great. My friend had corned beef and cabbage. Best corned beef I have ever tasted. I had the Scotch Eggs. YUM!. Wish it was closer to home.

This seems like a fun place if you are into Irish or bluegrass music. No entertainment during our visit but bet it would be good. Food was good (a little greasy) prices were good and the service above average.

We stopped in for dinner. It was fun! It was crowded but that's because it is fun. The service is good. The food is good. The decor is eclectic. You may share a long table with others. The food was very good.

I think for locals this place has a sentimental value. It has live music, a cool atmosphere, and friendly service. I also liked it because it was real close to the hotel I was staying at. ( I stayed at the Aloft Hotel). However, I...More

We always enjoy the food (mostly locally sourced), beer and atmosphere at Fiddler’s! My favorites have been the bangers and mash, as well as the Magner’s Cider. Wide selection of Irish-inspiration food and drink.

Great local beer and traditional Irish food! Very cool setting in downtown South Bend! We had the fish and chips and a steak boxty. Both were savory and cooked to perfection. Don’t forget to end your meal with a shamrock coffee!

We visited here a couple days after Christmas and decided to eat at Fiddler’s because the Trip Advisor reviews are rarely wrong. “Rare” includes the possibility of being wrong, however, and we unfortunately did not enjoy our visit or our food. The service was awful,...More
