My wife and I enjoy Fiddlers for beer and appetizers. Very comfortable. We like sitting in front of the fireplace on a cold day.

Great place, great food. A bit of a wait. I would hope that they would take names at the door and call when a table became available but you have to watch for a table and make a dash for it. Other than that, it was a fantastic restaurant and yummy Irish food.

This was an amazing experience. Although the seating is a little confusing (first-come, first-served, but no waiting list), the food and beer is amazing!!!

It's everything you want an Irish Pub to be. Great atmosphere, including random musicians that come in and play Irish music around the fireplace, great food and wonderful beers. Went twice in one week.

We came here for the New Years celebration. I really enjoyed the Scottish band and bag pipes. The staff were very friendly. I didn't think the food was great. The soda bread was awesome. The kale salad didn't have enough lemon dressing. The vegetable pie didn't have much flavor. It was $50 a person and they add 20% gratuity automatically.... More

Great Irish pub in the heart of South Bend. Nice live music on a bitter cold Monday night. I had the Molly Malone stew. Not a dish you can get anywhere. Delish!

One of my favorite places in South Bend. Very unique place especially for our area. It has an old world flavor to it that is quite charming. The food is quite good. But the best part is the live music on the evening.

I really enjoyed this place I got the fish and chips which were cooked perfectly and served in a newspaper wrapper (nice!). There was live music and the crowd joined in and there was lots of clapping and laughing. You sit public house style and we sat next to a delightful couple from north carolina and me and my buddy...

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.
