A classic Irish pub, with part of the bar actually from Ireland. The owner is straight from the isle and it’s a welcome home to plenty of ex-pats that sit at the end of the bar. The service is solid, but don’t expect anyone outside of a couple bartenders to know a whole lot about beer. Selection is solid; 24 taps with a solid bottle list and great whiskey selection. Two of the taps are always Guinness, but there are some solid other choices. Food is great, authentic Irish cuisine done right. Weekend nights get packed with college kids though and it can get a little nuts. Overall, a nice place to get a taste of Ireland, but not Orlando’s best for beer freaks.

One of my favorite irish pubs. The atmosphere is as authentic as it comes, the brews while not the fanciest, are true to the region they’re repping, and the whiskey list is a nice side bar to it. The real winner here is the food though, as every meal feels like a home cooked escape from dublin rains, and you don’t have to go too far to relate to that here in florida.

I love Fiddler’s Green, but it is more of a love of familiarity. They play soccer games on the TV, they let local sports clubs get together in the side rooms, they have real dart boards, they have great musicians perform there, they have (usually) good food, and they have a very UK/Rep. Ireland-centric beer selection. The service isn’t always stellar, but it is usually passable. These days more microbrews are making an appearance on the taps, but this is really the sort of place you go when you want good fish and chips and a properly poured pint of Guinness or Murphy’s Stout. Decent bottle selection, too. If you’re timing your visit with the entertainment, let me suggest you plan on being there on a night when Cahir O’Doherty is strumming, or the Wyndbreakers are bringing the tunes (weird name, I know, but great guys and great performers). Full liquor bar, too, and a pretty damned good Scotch selection.

It’s what you would expect a pub to be. Dark, dirty, and rugged. The tables are wobbly and the chairs are uncomfortable. All part of the charm I say. The food is pretty good too.

Dark, dingy and dirty pub in the ersatz Irish style. Service slow and devoid of any beer knowledge, so don’t ask ’what is the ABV of this?’ unless you want a blank stare. Although early evening, tables were sticky with stale beer residues. Beer when it arrived was in terrible condition - virtually no carbonation, stale with zero head. Fullers ESB an awful example of old, tired and flabby beer served flat as a millpond, with none of the complexity of the real thing. Couldn’t wait to leave and go to Redlight, Redlight. Do not drink here unless you are desperate.

Nice Irish Pub with about 20 beers on tap. Surprised to see they had CC Jai Alai and it was a good treat. Also have a bunch of beers in bottles but nothing too crazy but decent. Food is good and service at the bar was great. They also have live music on certain nights. Would definitely go back. Fish and chips and their hamburgers are great.

Great Irish pub for the area. Draft selections start with the expected Irish slant, but still good variety of others. Live Irish music adds to the atmosphere on select nights. Bar area can become cramped, but remains festive.

Love this place especially once they get to know you. Service is faster once you are seen a few times and beer selection is good. Lots of beer on tap and always one or two taps changing. Bottle selection is decent. Food is great especially the fish and chips. Also have some good bands at times.
I visit at least once a week and won’t stop going here. Would be better if there were no preppy Rollins students.

Fiddler’s is a landmark of Winter Park. It is a cozy little Irish Pub that has a lot more space than it looks like from outside. They offer complimentary valet on busy nights. They have typical Irish beers (Guiness, Smithwicks, Murphy’s, etc.), but they also have Germans and American Micros on tap like Lagunitas IPA, Hacker-Pschorr, and Wittekirke. In bottles they have Delirium Tremens, La Fin, and some other occasional surprises. The prices will get to you after a few pints, though. $19 for a pitcher of Lagunitas IPA, $8 for a bottle of Delirium. The service is always dependable and the food is very good, plus they are open late with valet. Always enjoyable, if I have some extra cash.
