good place to hunker down and enjoy a warming beer and lunch. make sure to have time to spend though... seems understaffed at night and orders take a while.

Charming old-Irish style atmosphere, and even though itís in Indiana, it doesnít seem tacky because it feels like itís aged. Of the 18 taps, most are pretty pedestrian offerings that can be found anywhere- American macros, the big Irish ones (Guinness, Harp, etc.)- but also a few regional microbrews like Bells, Founders, Three Floyds. The menu has a lot of Irish food and American brewpub fare, and is hearty and pretty good overall. Recommended if youíre spending any time in South Bend.

Now my reviews compares Fiddlers to other local offerings and its not even close. I gave them 15/ 15 on Beer because of the range. You have Robert the Bruce in cask, Hopslam, Chimay (Premiere), Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier, Founderí Imperial Stout, Gold Purveyor Guiness, Three Floyds Gumballhead Wheat, Delirium Nocturnum, Two Hearted Ale (all on tap) and only Stella Artois as a BMC offering on tap.... I could go on. The food is good enough to go with the drinks. The ambiance is rough tables, fire place, Irish flags, and unplugged local bands focusing more on Irish style of folk music. Nothing in the area even comes close.

The ambiance of this place was the best thing about it with a quaint, pub-like feel. Mis-matched furnishings, comfy chairs in front of a fireplace, Irish decor as far as the eye could see. The downfall was that it was packed to the gills with college kids, and it wasnít even a game weekend. We sat on the patio and alerted an inside server of our presence, but were neglected for 15 minutes and finally pushed through to the bar to get our drinks. $5 pints were not overly expensive, but I wouldnít call it a value. We finally were able to grab a table (seat yourself!) and kept getting bumped into since the aisles were so narrow. Hop Devil on draught was a pleasant surprise, as well as Chimay. Otherwise the selection was rather common. Since there are few beer bars in the area, it may be worth it for you to stop here for a pint, but I was a little disappointed.

The beers are great. They have the gold standard for Guinness and itís the best in Northern Indiana. The atmosphere is great! And the food is equally good. Iíve met some interesting people there -)

Mostly common import taps but does have Bells Two Hearted as well as the new Nine G beer. The feel is quite old world pub like. Not a bad place to enjoy a few session beers.
